      1. lol i was actually making fun of god of war… hence the :v
        i seriously didn’t like what they showned from it… looks like an entirely different game… i liked the fast paced action and gruesome violence from the last generation ones….


      2. It’s strange to see you not trolling about Playstation mascots.


      1. Maybe i was just making fun of God of War? I know it was showned last E3… and they showed some gameplay footage, but still am unimpressed by it…


      1. Best Star Fox game I ever played in entire of my life. Hoping to see something similar on the Switch.

  1. I wish metroid samus returns won best of show as well just because it’s metroid and I want it to do as well as possible. Though it makes more sense to have odyssey be the best of show since we know a lot more about that game and it looks like the best 3d mario in ages.

  2. It is true one thing. If a game there is Mario, you sure win a trophy. Just like Mario & Rabbids. In another universe Ubisoft decide to make only the Rabbids Strategy game and people rages on that game. Now with Mario everything is ok.

    PS: It’s a great game anyway, they have done a good job personally.

  3. Metroid: Samus Returns actually won the handheld/mobile character? It wasn’t railroaded by the cell phone games that have more users? I’m very happy about this. Maybe there is some hope after all. Then again, this was mostly just critics voting. In the user voting polls, M:SR will most likely get stoned to death.

    1. Honestly, I didn’t actually read the article the first time. I saw the headline and thought the article was just going to be about Odyssey winning that award, so I jumped to the comments. Just read the article now and l see it actually lists all the awards.
