The second Game Developers Choice Online Awards nominees have been announced for 2011. This year there's a variety of awards where all types of games are nominated, from Zynga's Facebook games to more established MMOs and other popular online titles.
The big announcement this year is that EverQuest will be receiving the Hall of Fame award, which recognizes online titles that have advanced the genre and pioneered major shifts in design. EverQuest is certainly a far recipient, considering it's still going strong 12 years after its launch. It's probably been one of the most influential online games ever alongside World of Warcraft.
Other nominees for the GDC Online Awards included titles such as League of Legends, DC Universe Online, CityVille, Dragon Age Legends and even Minecraft. There's also the chance for your voice to be head as there is an open "Audience Award" where you can vote for any online game you want to win. Best hurry, as the voting closes at the end of the week.
