Some of their genre classifications baffle me, but it's a good list I guess. Nice to see Evolve do well, and Splatoon getting recognition is always fine by me.

EDIT: Before you ask about titles like Bloodborne, Metal Gear Solid, Batman, Witcher, Dragon Age, all missing... this was probably only for games playable on the showfloor.

You know, I never thought I'd see the day I'd say this, but the new CoD does look good.

#4 Posted by speedfog (3199 posts) -

Why The Evil Within on PS4 and Evolve on XBone? Any more info on that?

#5 Posted by Legend002 (7157 posts) -

Yep. Then again, I buy them every year so what do I know lol

No one knows. It makes no sense, since Evolve swept up all the other categories.

They are always at Gamescom. They had the biggest showfloor booths and space, they just didn't have a presentation like Microsoft or Sony.

Seems like it. PES 2014 was better than FIFA 14, so it wouldn't be too much of a stretch if that happens again this year.

@MonsieurX: does it really matter? Or are you one of those morons who think a title on multiple platforms isnt a real game?

#10 Posted by GrenadeLauncher (4880 posts) -

Nintendo: nominations 5, wins 2

Sony: nominations 5, wins 2

Microsoft: nominations 6, wins 0

Xbox One is the best place to play.

Don't worry lems, trade show awards are meaningless anywa

In Mikami we trust. TEW looks incredible. it's like a mix of Resident Evil Remake + Last Of Us + Siren Blood Curse.

Only issue with the game is the frame rate and hope it gets fixed.

Lol at multiplatforms , winning best PC , Xbox and Playstation game award . Gamescom is still underway and they were way too quick to distribute these awards . Some games were showcased after they distributed these awards and were playable too .

WTF .? Risen 3 is best RPG now .? Sad to see RPG genre in this state , when best RPG that people get at gamescom is Risen 3 . Lol at current state of game industry and mainstream media , distributing these awards .

Not playable on the show floor. I say that right there, in the OP.

#19 Edited by B4X (4769 posts) -

Another trade show another DriveClub red headed step child?

EDIT: EVOLVE is going to kick some serious multi-player ass....

#20 Edited by SolidTy (43287 posts) -

I was looking forward to checking out Evolve, but jeez.

#21 Posted by mario-galaxys (614 posts) -

Surprised that Splatoon won over Super Smash Bros. under the Wii [sic] category.

#22 Posted by Blabadon (26329 posts) -

@charizard1605: Yes it was you numb nut

#23 Posted by gamer2444 (30 posts) -

#24 Posted by Heil68 (44493 posts) -

Best Console Game Sony Playstation.

Not surprised..are you?

#25 Edited by foxhound_fox (88313 posts) -

Odd how CIG was never mentioned.

That Constellation Aquila commercial alone was better than most games in the past several years.

Spot on.

It's sad to see how far we've fallen from Planescape: Torment and Fallout 1/2.

As usual I blame Gamestop and the ever rising dev costs.
