The Game Awards 2017

 

The Game Awards are the Grammy’s of video-games, and last night all fans of the industry were attached to their seats in order to watch the conference. It was shocking, the best yet without a doubt. Everybody had their eyes on the big price, the GOTY (Game of The Year), however, there were many more sweet treats until the end: announcements, teasers of upcoming titles, special deals on both hardware and software, and last but not least the charisma and enchant of the creator and host of the event Geoff Keighley.

102 games were nominated, but only a few had the honor to be crowned and awarded with a prize. Some, were even nominated to several categories, as Cuphead did.
