After reading that it made me realize what a shitty year it was for game releases.


DOOM got 2 which it was rightly chosen . Surprised Titanfall 2 missed out . Not surprised COD did not even get put in any category .

No real surprises.

Witcher 3 story was amazing well done, best game I’ve played since original Mass Effect. Rest of those listed, meh.
