    Why did they have to bring in Rae Sremmurd... infuriated that they have the #1 song on the US Billboard right now. That should have brought back CHVRCHES.

    Pft. Best fan creation was not announced. Guess it would have either gone to AM2R or Uranium. Still, I like the fact that they chose to simply not give the winner instead of choosing a new one. Feels more like they didn't want to bent over rather than that they complied willingly.

    Best VR game? Best esports player? Best fan creation?
    ...
    ...
    Bloody hell I am old.

    That said I have apparently played two games on the list this year (Battlefield 1 and Dark Souls 3), might have to give Firewatch a look as well.

    BOTW looks awesome, its RPG aspects are just insane, although the FPS on wii u is terrible just another reason to buy switch i guess. Game reminds me somewhat of FFXV, at least the first half, this massive open world with so much life, really cant wait for this game!

    Hmm, so all of the GOTY candidates were shooters except 1? What a year it's been.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    I am not into award shows because they are silly. It doesn't mean anything to me. I will pass, thought.

    To be fair, Overwatch was basically this year's most important game release. Everyone was and still is playing it.

    DOOM should have gotten an honorable mention at least... The game is solid as fuck, and great for running benchmarks!

    Wasn't it nominated for a few things and even won the sound design award?

    I was just expecting Doom to win. I really wanted it to win. But Inside winning was bullshit but to be fair the art director games were all kinda garbage
