    This is the single biggest WTF of the whole event. Just look at the games its up against and wins??? Someone bribed or sucked alot of lollypops to get that to win. That "game" has very little narrative and its like an hour long. Comparing that with an outstanding horror game (Until Dawn) and 3 other long, excellent story driven games?

    Even if you took Witcher 3 out of that list, Her story isnt even top 3 worthy imo.

    Wow, what a joke. Do these people awarding stuff actually play the games they are choosing from or do they just get bribed to win? >_>

    What I want to know is, what the hell was that music at the end?? It was a pretty lame way to end the show.

    That was the one thing I wanted to find out as well. Didn't watched the show, but it would be freakin' amazing to see Splatoon take the title against its competitors.

    Nice to see Ori and the Blind Forest get some recognition, but I'm surprised it lost in best soundtrack compared to MGSV, to be honest.

    So word is now getting around that apparently even though MGSV won awards, Hideo Kojima couldn't make it because Konami banned him from attending the event.

    And in other news, Konami continues to dig its own grave.

    How did MGS:V win best action game O.o

    It is half done. Half of it is great but the other half is boring padding.

    Out of the list Ori or Rise of the Tomb Raider should have won. But the first one isn't mainstream and the second took the ingloriously bad idea to release console exclusive on the same day Fallout 4 came out.

    Mostly good choices and decisions I can understand but Ori taking out best art direction is straight up BS

    How was Mario Maker nominated for game of the year over Splatoon? It's not even a game it's a utility.
