So it’s been a good awards for Activision/Blizzard Entertainment as they’re insanely popular Ovewatch scooped the big prize. Nice to see anticipation is there for the next Zelda and Niantic must be thrilled with Pokemon GO taking home 2 wins.

Do you agree with Game of the Year? Was Uncharted 4 robbed?
