The Witcher 3 sweeps the evening.
The Game Awards 2015 was held tonight, and the show was generally a success- whether it be for the quality of game reveals, or some segments that really celebrated the game industry, or even the first public acknowledgement of something that had so far only been speculated at, it was generally a good, fun showing all around.
That said, the most important part of an awards show is, you know, the awards. And on that count, The Game Awards 2015 really came through- although I still wish they would have more on stage awards than they did, I can hardly fault them for their choices.
