    1. Bayonetta 2 still should have been the Game of the year. So much deeper than DA: Inquisition. Platinum did a great job with it. Too sad, those awards are only based on popularity instad of real quality…

    Nintendo also won Best Developer. There should be a World Premiere by them tonight. Geoff seemed pretty excited and seemed to hint it wouldn’t be a disappointment like DK:TF. I’m staying up to watch it.

      1. IMO return was better cus it was hard and the bosses were pretty fun not saying TF was bad, it was pretty good too..

  2. Guy: How do you feel about your current position with wii u?

    Reggie: I’m confortable with our current position with our thumbs up are asses.

  3. Well deserved awards.

    It’d be nice then that people would start removing their heads from their butts and get a Wii U.

  4. I’ll spare you guys from my thoughts about Smash Bros being a fighting game…but seriously: they gave it two slots?

  5. Actually Mario Kart 8 won best Sports/Racing game. It beat out other Sports games like Fifa as well as the racers.

    Smash Bros winning the best Fighting Game is awesome too!

    Nintendo winning best developer is ALMOST the icing on the cake for the award show. Just wish Bayonetta 2 won GOTY ;/

    Other than that, the awards were actually really good and the games were MUCH more deserving than they were in the past where games like Call of Duty could win -_-

  6. I found the Game Awards to be pretty good. Lots of cool games coming out in 2015 , You can tell some are still in development (Early).
