The Winners Of The Game Awards

The Game Awards managed to follow the long standing tradition of its predecessor, the Video Game Awards, by almost completely ignoring the actual awards and presenting most of them off camera. That’s probably for the best considering who actually won, should Trey Parker really have got an award from doing a voice he has done for the last 18 seasons of a TV show?

  1. These awards were the funniest thing ever, the best audience & I was waiting for someone random to just run on the stage. It was unorganised too & the music that Scottish lad with the lasers lol

  2. Let’s just say I strongly disagree with many of these and leave it at that.

  3. Yeah, I’m struggling to see the serious side of these awards, especially with the Remaster category. Still, I’m sure some people got a bit pissed and had a good old knees up, so good for them.

  4. Meh.

  5. Refreshing to see awards going to games/companies I’d actually agree with. Without doubt Nintendo has been exceptional this year, while Far Cry, Mordor and Dragon Age have been the only third party games of note really. Best of all not a COD, Fifa or Assassins Creed award in site :D (well, except that stupid eSport nonsense).

  6. The Game of the Year nominees emphasised that this has been a year of transistion and not of great games. Most wouldn’t have had a hope last year (or this year if remasters had been allowed take nominations for GotY).
