In case you are lame like me and MISSED the GAME AWARDS last night (What in the WORLD was I doing?? I have to go back and watch it) here are the winners from last night! (and maybe some of my commentary):
GAME OF THE YEAR:
Haven’t played this yet, but I keep hearing such amazing things about it. My husband started it and said it was fantastic, but he too didn’t get too far: we were far to distracted. We may have to give this game another shot! (I was planning on doing so anyway… but now it might be on my “must buy” list.)
DEVELOPER OF THE YEAR:
Guess what game they developed? Look at the previous category. Yup, them. Makes sense, does it not?
BEST INDEPENDENT GAME:
I didn’t realize this was an Independent Game! This game is phenominal and so much fun! Seriously addicting. And had us yelling and playing and cheering… Fantastic.
BEST MOBILE/HANDHELD GAME:
Wait… huh? I did not see that coming. I fully expected FallOut Shelter. I haven’t even heard of this one. Interesting. Congrats to them though!
BEST NARRATIVE STORY:
Did…. I haven’t played this one. Nor have I heard of it. I looked up the description, and not going to lie, it does sound interesting. I – oh! It’s only for computer? Well, that makes sense. But I may have to try this one. I am all about the story… I thought … well any of the others would have been good too! And they were fantastic! So consider my interest perked! Now how to get it for my computer….
Nice. I will have to look it up and listen.
The lady from My Story!
WHOA. It must have been SPECTACULAR, because she beat out Lara Croft, Geralt, AND Joker! Holy cow!
GAMES FOR IMPACT:
Another one I have been dying to try out! (Note to self: Add Until Dawn and Life is Strange to Game list.) I heard this was amazing.
…. Did NOT see that one coming! O.O
I was never really interested in this series (I know, I am the worst). And somehow I’m still not. I am just a bad gamer. Once I finish my current list, I’ll probably give it a shot and be shown how wrong I am for not wanting to right now, but who knows. But this does give me something to think about.
BEST ROLEPLAYING GAME:
Again… I need to play this sometime.
BEST FIGHTING GAME:
Does not surprise me one bit….
BEST FAMILY GAME:
As much as I LOVE Mario… this was the one game I hadn’t really looked into that involved him. And I love Nintendo games. I was actually rooting for Disney Infinity. But I have heard a lot of people thoroughly enjoyed this game. This may be for someday, but not the today for me. But glad to know it was good!
BEST SPORTS/RACING GAME:
Did NOT see that coming! With as much as people LOVE FIFA, I was expecting it to win! But Whoo Rocket League!
BEST MULTIPLAYER GAME:
I need to see what this game is about apparently.
BEST ART DIRECTION:
What? I… I haven’t heard of this on either… Anyone want to tell me about it?
ESPORTS GAME OF THE YEAR:
I wouldn’t know this one. Sorry guys. I thought it would be COD or League of Legends.
BEST FAN CREATION (Wait.. huh?)
Haven’t heard about this… I am so out of the loop apparently.
….. I need to do some research.
ESPORTS TEAM OF THE YEAR:
I honestly don’t know what they mean by the who ESports thing. I will work on figuring it out.
ESPORTS PLAYER OF THE YEAR:
MOST ANTICIPATED GAME:
Now this one makes perfect sense! I have been hearing about this one from my husband for quite a while, and I KNOW there are a lot of people looking forward to this!
To all of the winners! That is fantastic! Whoo! I am definitely looking forward to some of these, and we all know how much work goes into these amazing games that we enjoy!
