The Game Awards 2015 were last night and man, oh, man – was it full of excitement!  All sorts of trailers were dropping by the minute (see some below) with some great awards handed out.

Below you will find a list of the winners (thanks to Coming Soon). The most notable being the overall Game of the Year being handed to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt; which I have to say, is an amazing game! Just on replay value alone, it’s worth the price of purchase at $49.99 and the price of the DLC pass $24.99. As an open world game the only other title that touches it is GTA V. I’m going out on a ledge when I say, The Witcher 3 edges out GTA with some of the most in-depth stories this gamer has ever played.
