  1. Well, no surprises here: if people were stampeding just to play Zelda at E3, then a result other than this would have been VERY surprising.

  2. ||Do you hear that sound Xbots? That is the sound of inevitability, the sound of your end, prepare for your demise…||

    1. Yes it will. Unless something even better comes out next year. Now we play the waiting game for 2017 Game of the Year.

  3. Zelda should of had all the catagories on that list minus the vr and online ones

      1. survival could be counted as a sport if your dark minded

  4. Best of Show is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Yay!

    Best Original Game is Horizon Zero Dawn. I’m guessing No Man’s Sky wasn’t shown. Either way, yay!

    Best Console Game is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Yay again!

    Best Action/Adventure Game is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Yay once more!

    Best Role Playing Game is Final Fantasy XV. Yay!

    Best Racing Game is Forza Horizon 3. Meh. I don’t own an XBone… yet.

    Special Commendation for Graphics is God of War. Yay!

  5. Zelda should’ve won Best Sports instead of Steep. Snowboarding in BOW >> Steep. Kisses kisses bye. XOXO

  6. I was not surprised. I could tell everyone loved the game. and let this sink in for a minute: NINTENDO WON 3 AWARDS THIS YEAR, ONE OF THEM BEING THE BEST GAME OF THE SHOW, WITH GET THIS: ONLY A FEW GAMES. THATS FUCKING INSANE!!! Content wise and variety they lost, but overall game of the show, they dominated. I think they still won. I’m not trying to sound like a fan boy who says one game is good and then later say that this other game is better just because its Nintendo, I just think they showed off Zelda in the best way possible. This will most likely be on of the GOTY nominations, and hey, maybe it might actually win it. After all Bayonetta 2 and Mario Maker were both nominations for GOTY. Bayonetta 2 almost won 2014, while Mario Maker almost won 2015. I don’t like to kiss up to Nintendo though, I just like their games. If the NX controller was shaped like a fucking double sided boomerang, I’d wait for the Xbox Scorpio or maybe the PS4K
