The fourth annual Canadian Videogame Awards (CVA) took place on Saturday April 20th and showcased the great Canadian talent behind some of the biggest games of 2012. From Ubisoft’s Far Cry 3 to Klei Entertainment’s Mark of the Ninja, Canadians were able to meet and celebrate the people that collaborate to make these great games.
We recently had a chance to talk to Canadian Videogame Awards Co-founder and Electric Playground host Victor Lucas just before the awards ceremony where he discussed the CVA, choosing Elias Toufexis as the host, and the rise of Indie Games.

One of the key people responsible for taking videogames into mainstream Canada, Victor Lucas has worked hard over the last two decades to bring Greedy Productions and their shows Electric Playground and Reviews on the Run to the forefront of videogame journalism in Canada. Both shows can now be found in syndication on a number of major markets across the USA and Australia.
Victor is also the brains behind the annual Canadian Videogame Awards; a once-a-year event that celebrates world-class videogame developers and publishers. His cast and crew love working for him, video game journalists all over the world respect him, and the videogame industry knows the things he’s done to help bring the industry to the masses.
I met with Victor at the Canadian Videogame Awards where we talked about Greedy Productions, about David Hayter being the host of the Award show, and about his thoughts on the future of the Canadian Videogame Awards.
