The Game Awards

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Monday, everyone!

… That sounded like an oxymoron, didn’t it?

So, this past Thursday had been The Game Awards. Rachel and I, instead of watching it, played The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past because we’re in a different timezone and we sort of forgot about the awards.

Oops.

We’ll probably watch the replay of it at some point, but we did hunt down a list of the winners to see what had won. Some definitely weren’t too surprising — of course Breath of the Wild is the most anticipated game, Pokemon GO had to win something with how popular it was, and Overwatch pretty much swept up a good chunk of awards — but I was a little disappointed in myself for not trying many of the games for this year.

Rather, the only game on that list that I’ve played is Pokemon GO. I’ve heard of most, if not all, of the games on the list, but I haven’t had the pleasure of playing them yet. It’s a bit funny, as I’m a gamer, I enjoy playing video games, but my circle of games seems pretty small at the moment. I better fix that, don’t you think?

At the very least, I was able to add quite a few more games to my “need to check out” list!

What about you? What did you think of the awards? Any different games you would have picked as the winners if you had been in charge?
