Quite hoping Overwatch will sweep. And Horizon 3 is a lock for best racing I'd hope.

Will be interesting to see if Civ 6 or Xcom 2 wins strategy. Firaxis is running away with that one either way.

It's only new to Xbox. It came out on PS4 and PC in 2015. Looks like it did win quite a few awards from this show in 2015 though:

No Deus Ex or Dishonored? Uncharted 4 voice acting and graphics? Sure but gameplay those two games dump on uncharted 4.

I've never taken this ceremony seriously, bunch of cringe moments and absurd games getting rewarded. I do however watch it for the reveals which might not be the case this time around.
I'll still watch either way since friends get together and talk gaming and sometimes drink. Good times.

I know I'm behind in playing "new games", but I haven't played any of these. This is probably a wake up call that I need to purchase/play games a little sooner in the future. Only good news is that by the time I play them a GOTY edition (or whatever they want to call DLC included) is usually available.

I'm a good three to four years behind, which I calculate saves me somewhere between "A lot of money" and "Wow, I saved a boatload!" The good thing is, I can't even tell the difference in games since I've been behind for so long, every 'new' game I play looks great!

Overwatch deserves one of them, but not all in my opinion. Blizzard have done quite a few not so great things with it this year that have annoyed me. They seem to be improving though which is great.

I'd be interested to see Angry Joe win the trending gamer "award". I'm pretty sure he and Geoff hate each other after that awful super awkward interview.

Also, so much Uncharted!

Inside should sweep the awards. Disappointed that Dark Souls 3 didn't get a nod for GOTY, but oh well.
