The salt is real, jeez. Overall, I am fine with the winners. Overwatch is a great game in my opinion, but not quite GOTY for me, Dark Souls III fills that spot. Boogie is a great dude, Doom is great, I have heard great things about both Inside and Uncharted 4.

In terms of fighting games, they are all good games on the list. However, SF has always been the king of fighters so its fair enough that it won.

So yeah, people chill. Games are highly subjective after all.

I'm fine with Overwatch winning GOTY, especially considering what was nominated. It is a fantastic game (subjective of course) and Blizzard has done a good job supporting it.

I thought Inside was vastly overrated and I think The Witness should have won best Indie game.

Pokemon Go as a game might be more on the mediocre side, but I think you have to take into consideration how much of an impact the game had on a social and cultural level. It was a phenomena, albeit not for a huge amount of time, and no other game can claim to be anywhere close to it in that regard. So for that reason I think it deserved recognition. And I'm guessing that's what the voters felt as well.

Best Game and Best Direction seems a bit redundant. I would assume if you had the best game of the year, you also had the best direction...

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.
This coming from someone who has never even played the game or beta before...

It released last year and won several awards. It's new to Xbox in 2016 though and will be eligible for TA's GOTY awards.

I like Overwatch but let's be real here, it's overrated for sure, the GOTY should have gone to Dark Souls 3 or Titanfall 2 or Dishonored 2.

No, let's be honest, Overwatch isn't overrated at all. It's the best shooter I've played in years. It gives me the feeling of a modernized team fortress 2 which is a great thing.

I'm confused about Pokemon Go and Best Family game. It's a single player/online multiplayer mobile app and in no way a "Family" game. Family Friendly or All Ages maybe, but to me a Family game should be kid friendly and have one main component Local Co-op so you can play with.... drum roll please...... you guessed it your family. I can't tell you how much fun it was finally playing co-op LEGO games with my nieces and nephew over Thanksgiving.

Yeah, I really would have put skylanders in that spot, but hey, not our awards right?

That I agree. Dishonored 2 is my favorite this year.

This is how you know TA members as a whole are clueless. Battlefield 1 lost to Doom for best sound... that invalidates this entire thing. I won't even bother wasting my time looking at games that were chosen based on their achievements and not their actual quality.

And overwatch is a kiddie game full of micro transactions... no more needs to be said. And it's not a shooter, it's a MOBA which is the cancer of game genres.

And since they nominated a DLC, where's The Crew's Calling All Units expansion (which TA didn't even make a news post about)? Where's Rise of Iron for Destiny? Both of those are better than what was nominated.

Overwatch is not a MOBA at all.

This isn't the TA GOTY awards. Those are coming in the weeks ahead. These winners are from last night's show, simply titled The Game Awards. It's broadcasted annually in early December.
