Inside is the only independent game nominated also for best game. So I guess it already has won the best independent game award laugh

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!
link to super awkward interview? I've only heard of angry Joe thanks to his hilarious sonic free riders review and I only know jacksepticeye because my daughter tells me about him
Just noticed your post, here:

Most anticipated game: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for me! Also Best E-Sports player has to go to Infiltration hands down! That guy knows his Street Fighter play. :)

I really hope that Inside wins a few awards. I definitely think it should win best music/sound and best independent game. I haven't been sucked into a game so quickly in a while. I literally turned it on, and played it for 3.5 hours, til the end. I was absolutely in love. Best game I have played in a while. Cleaned up any secrets I missed and had 1000g in under 4 hours, and felt that I paid a fair price of $19.99. Worth EVERY cent.

How the hell can you have an award for most anticipated game - That is down right stupid.

And whats a trending gamer, I'm guessing its nothing to do with ability or skill.

That's not an award, it's a bad omen.

Historically that's not really true.

2003 - Halo 2
2004 until 2008 - No Award
2009 - God of War III
2010 - Portal 2
2011 - Mass Effect 3
2012 - GTA V
2013 - Titanfall
2014 - The Witcher of 3: Wild Hunt
2015 - No Man's Sky

So according to popular opinion it looks like the award missed once, in the most recent example of NMS, and besides that it's always been given to a very good or excellent game.

How is Scalebound not on 'Most Anticipated Game'? Or Cuphead?

WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR SOOOOOO LONG. Just make them.

Might as well call it the Sony awards. God of War should not be most anticipated, it won't be out until 2018 at the earliest. Last years most anticipated didn't get released this year either and rocket league beat out forza for best racer. Splatoon won best shooter over Halo 5. What a JOKE.

Also Boogie for tending gamer? That fat asshole doesn't even game.
1. Yes, he does game. Anyone with functioning eyes that looks at his channel can see that.

2. He's not an asshole.

He's pretty much the inverse of Angry Joe. Well thought out opinions, very nice, and doesn't resort to petty insults when he doesn't like the game. Makes me wonder how Boogie puts up with that loudmouth, haha.

Go Witcher 3: Blood and Wine. A TRUE expansion for a great game.

If I didn't intimately know 2016 was balls for gaming for me a quick look at the GOTY would have reminded me.....wow, 3 shooters for GOTY...smh...for me, of that, while U4 wasn't a great game, it was very good and far, far better than Inside imo.

Horizon should be a lock for racer, Banner Saga 2 for strategy (haven't yet played Civ 6, but BS was actually innovative, which Civ will not be) and RDR2 by a mile for most anticipated...not remotely close. Zelda...lmfao

Best narrative...Inside....that's subtle :)

Best RPG....I weep for that list....bring on 2017 :) :)

They are both nice people overall, just different styles of content. I feel bad for Boogie as he gets so much shit for... well everything. Lovely guy all around and I am glad he got nominated.

WoW: Legion deserves best RPG by a mile. I doubt it'll win, but it does deserve it. Nothing else even comes close to both quality and scope, including the Witcher expansion.

Best Direction: Battlefield 1 (going back to WWI is brilliant for a prequel)
Best Sports/Racing: FH3 (that's easy)
Most Anticipated: RDR2 (gotta be)
Best Action: Gears (love that series)

Why are Sports and Racing combined in the same category? There has to be enough examples of each for other nominations in there own category! Where's Forza 6, Dirt Ralley, WRC5, etc?

Overwatch is not winning best esports. That's just not true.
