Does anyone else think Stardew Valley should've beaten out Inside for indie game of the year. I personally think Stardew valley held more attention than Inside.

games should really have to have been out for a few months (like Doom) and not like Dishonored 2 to win anything. And how can a DLC be considered a game?

I don't know if Pokemon Go should've won. Once the initial hype and nostalgia of Pokemon wore off it turned out to be a pretty mediocre collection simulator

I'm so happy Boogie2988 won the award. He's an amazing person and totally deserved it.

The fact that a reskinned flick golf game can win the Family Game category kinda shows how little love that genre gets these days. Mind you, LEGO TFA was a pretty tedious cash in that offered nothing new, and it's hard to say any of the others in that category gave us anything mind blowing.

Maybe Lego World will be up there next year, and be deserving of it.

If someone is looking for a sane comment, I grouped up them right here.

Overwatch winning GOTY is a joke in my opinion. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is the best game Ive played this console generation, let alone for the year.

Will never get way Overwatch was game of the year. Beta was okay but couldn't see myself paying for it at full price.
Our Afflictions said:
Dark Souls 3 was GOTY for me. Overwatch winning GOTY is sad.

Overwatch winning Esports game of the year is beyond sad. Nothing comes close to League Of Legends, with LCS weekly, and World Championships..

This is why no one should take the VGAs seriously. Pokémon Go beats Fire Emblem and Monster Hunter. And a DLC wins best RPG. Freaking laughable.

Pokémon Go is better than Fire Emblem and the best family game of the year?! What is wrong with the planet?

Dark souls was should be goty imo, or at least best rpg. However im glad Uncharted didnt got goty or even best adventure. Overrated piece of crap IMO.

Not sure why sports and racing games are a single category, 4 yearly remakes and FH3 ... not a tough decision to make really

Holy crap! I didn't realize how many people actually cared about what game wins or doesn't win. I can't be the only one that's in it for the trailers, info, and world premieres. Right?

I couldn't care less. I can't believe they have an award for best trending gamer. How sad lol

More than anything, I think this shows that the year was rather weak for new releases.

SFV over Killer Instinct is outrageous!
Yes, complete bullshit. Killer Instinct has 10x the content SFV has and the combat system blows it away as well. But it's a popular franchise, and it's a PS4 game, so you know all the Sony fans voted for it en masse just off general principal.
I thought these categories were council selected? Either way fully agree. You only had to look at how often the ps store was plugged compared to steam, live and Nintendo estore to see how their bread is buttered. Add to that the painfully obvious descriptions of it after the Death Stranding trailer.

Haha exactly. I looked at the GOTY nominees and thought "is that it?"

i disagree...

all that KI has are TWO movements... back forward and quartercircle... now change that to down up or quartercircle back and that basically ALL special movements from ALL chars...
that is a boring piece of crap. all characters play the same and all that changes is the timing in which you do stuff.


and about Boogie2988, I love the man, but trending GAMER??? man, there are streamers on twitch, not even Lirik, who play 10x the games and/or hours than Boogie2988 does... if he didn't do social videos or his Francis videos, no one would even know who he is... and he won trending GAMER??? trending youtuber, ok... but not gamer!

well i'm not against overwatch as a GOTY cause there is no serious candidate besides doom,maybe overwatch just won due to MP side that doom was lacking,anyway the rest of the winners are ok for me,games in nowdays are less and less enjoyable and not worth our money

I'm disappointed INSIDE didn't win GOTY and Firewatch didn't win best narrative. I haven't played Overwatch or Unchartered 4 but they must have been seriously good to topple those two.

overwatch probably won because it was made by blizard. overwatch should be in a different group for game of the year. if the server's die out it will just be another dead game.
look at fallout 4 it won based on name alone. i played it about a month ago and it's full of bugs and it's not a good game.
just personally opinion so all you fallout 4 fan boys calm down
You clearly don't know as much about Blizzard as you think you do. Servers for Overwatch die out? HAHA! You do realize Warcraft 3, doom 2, and Starcraft are still running don't you? If you don't understand why this means something to this conversation, all of those games are almost 20 years old

So? Not everyone plays single player.
