I have a friend who tells me that it is obvious that Paranoia had a powerful influence on me when I was still new to GMing. It was, after all, only the second game I ever owned (the first being D&D). The newest version is even more twisted than the 2nd Ed. book (and the two modules) I had back then.
In other words, that this game won such an award does not surprise me at all. Great work.
