Awards voor games worden haast op elk groot event uitgereikt. Eén van de meest gerespecteerde awards in de industrie, zijn de Game Developers Choice Awards van de GDC. Bij deze awards worden games namelijk gekozen door ontwikkelaars binnen de industrie. Veel mensen hadden verwacht dat God of War met de meeste prijzen naar huis zou gaan, net als een maand eerder op de DICE Summit.

Verrassend genoeg wist God of War echter geen enkele award binnen te slepen. De grote winnaar was namelijk Shadow of the Colossus. De game mocht de awards voor Best Game, Character Design, Game Design en Best Visual Arts in ontvangst nemen. Stuk voor stuk awards waar God of War ook voor genomineerd was. Nintendogs wist twee awards te winnen, namelijk Best Technology en de Innovation Award. Ook Psychonauts viel twee maal in de prijzen. Zowel Best Writing als Best New Studio (Double Fine Productions) mag de game zich toe eigenen.Best Game
