Game Awards Winners

Last night was the annual Game Awards featuring the well known Game of the year Award. We’ve got the full list of winners.

Ah, The Game Awards.  One of the many times a year when everyone comes together argues about what game should win which category and then disperse. This year we had some upsets and some not so shocking winners.  I’ve listed the categories and the winners below.  I’ve put my predictions as to what I thought was going to win as well.  I don’t really watch Esports so I didn’t have any predictions about those.  Happy Game of the Year Awards everyone!
