So was there no graphics and platformer award or did I miss it?!

Criminally there is no platformer award

I think there might be a graphics one though?

Well could've been worse, PUBG could've won.

Or Persona  

P5 would at least have deserved it...still too niche to win GOTY.

In all honesty 2017 is Nintendo's year. Switch success, BotW, SMO.
I wish Sony will learn from this. Launch your console with Big games ( 1st party games) like Nintendo did.

Well I kinda agree but let's not forget that Switch's success is a bit based on Wii U's failure. Nintendo abandoned  the Wii U and shifted everything to Switch, which is a great console and delivered the megatons right away.



Only one righteous winner really. Would be outrageous if Breath of the Wild didn't win, even though Persona 5 and Super Mario Odyssey were very worthy contenders too.

Edit: that said, this Game Awards was definitely the best so far. 2014 was kinda boring but still cool in a way, but the last couple of years were just straight up boring. This one was very cool, the ads got annoying but otherwise it was pretty hype. Aonuma's face at the end was priceless too, and I loved the way they announced the game of the year nominees with the orchestra giving each game a fair amount of respect and time, unlike those 20 second noisy snippets.

I agree. I just can't stand sore losers. 

In fact honestly Zelda probably wouldn't be my GOTY out of those nominees. But it's certainly a respectable one, I think all of them were.

fake news.



Horizon may not have won anything but people should still be glad that it was nominated, that's still a good thing, it's not like it went unnoticed then.



Truly is a shame. 
I'm playing through it right now, and it's a really, really great game. 
But it's biggest flaw was that it came out in the same year as the biggest and most acclaimed Zelda game ever, plus the Mario game everyone wanted since Galaxy 2.
Though, I think there's no shame whatsoever in losing to Zelda.
Guerilla Games should be very proud of themselves.



Ok....so all in all VERY happy with the show, announcements and above all the winners! Very satisfying. Really sad for Horizon and Mario though, but yeah this year competition was incredible. And most importantly The Game Awards aren’t the only awards given out this year.

Well we'll have to wait for PSX to see how much they bring the first party
