From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Interactive Achievement Awards (IAA's) are the only peer based awards that recognize the year's best videogames, computer games, online entertainment, outstanding individuals, and groundbreaking development teams that have propelled the advancement of the multi-billion dollar worldwide entertainment software industry. The awards presented by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) are determined by a vote of field -specific, qualified Academy members, making the Interactive Achievement Awards the most sought after, respected and credible recognition for creators of entertainment software.
