Who watched The Game Awards 2016?

The Game Awards have come and gone, I never had a chance to watch them although I was planning on watching it, I fell asleep instead. I did however, catch up on it all this morning and was pleasantly surprised to see That Dragon Cancer has won the award for games for impact, I've not played this game yet but I have watched the gameplay for it. It's an emotional roller coaster of a game that puts people in the shoes of those going through cancer and having a family member with cancer. The reason I'm so glad it won an award is because it's so different to other games, seeing how heartbreaking and exhausting it is for a family to deal with cancer and making people more aware of what it can be like might help others understand the lasting effects it has. I watched some of the live footage from last night this morning and decided to make a list of who won what award In case anyone missed it last night:

I'm so glad Dishonored 2 won the best action/adventure, from the gameplay I've seen on it, it looks like a better version of the first Dishonored, it still reminds me of Bioshock infinite because of the look of the characters (that's not a bad thing), it's one of the must have games for 2016 I can't wait until I finally get my hands on it, I still have the first one on PS3. The Walking Dead season 3 trailer was announced last night too, I can't say I'm too excited for it, I'm not a big fan of the games they didn't really keep me interested and I would personally rather read the comic and watch the show, I'm hoping next year will be a better year for gaming as I didn't feel it was that great of a year for gaming. Although saying that we do have the release of The Last Guardian soon (December 6th) which is exciting, I've been waiting years for it to be released! There were a few game trailers shown at the awards one of which was for Death Stranding, this was the second trailer for the game. Death Stranding is an upcoming open world action game that Kojima Productions and Sony developed together for the Playstation 4, there is no set release date for it yet but I feel that this trailer means it's on the horizon soon (I hope so), I'm most excited that Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen are both in the game, from the looks of the trailer Mads looks like one of the bad guys, tell me what you think of it:






There is one game that's literally just come out that I've been watching on twitch quite a bit, I probably shouldn't ruin it for myself but it looks so different to the other Final Fantasy games and I think that's what appeals to me, not because I think they're rubbish but just because I don't think I would be any good at them unlike the New Final Fantasy 15, which people waited 10 years for! That's a pretty long wait but I'm glad so many people like it and they weren't disappointed with it, it looks pretty beautiful, to be honest. It's safe to say that Overwatch has done pretty well this year! I've got it for Christmas so I'm excited to play it and review it eventually so keep an eye out for it.This month my article for Liability is top 5 games for Christmas 2016, once it's up I will post a link for you all to read it on my social media. What games are you all most looking forward to getting/playing?
