The Virtual Reality Awards were held over the last weekend of November, live streamed across the world and, in a world first, was presented completely in virtual reality (VR).
The award show did experience some technical difficulties in getting the stream and videos to run correctly, but overall the show was quite successful for a first time event (especially for one of it's kind), and the show managed to hear from some great developers as they acknowledged the hard work of the best in VR.
Hosted by Reverend Kyle and Sandra Whelan managed to carry on through technical difficulties, although they were interrupted at one stage by an alleged troll who managed to sneak past the guards on the door.
Despite a glitches here or there, overall the show will be remembered for being a first of it's kind. If you missed it and you would like to watch the full show, you can check it out at the Virtual Reality Reviewer
