GMA Nominations Announced – TSA Recognised

The Games Media Awards nominees have been announced this morning. The GMAs are an annual ceremony in which outlets, broadcasts and individual writers are rewarded for the work they’ve done through the year.

It gives me immense pleasure to be able to report that TheSixthAxis has been nominated in the category for Best Website. We’re all very happy to be on the list alongside IGN, Gamespot, Eurogamer, CVG and a couple of other independent sites that it’s also very nice to see recognised.
