Do you feel like there were any upsets with the results of the game awards, or perhaps winners whose name recognition far outweighed their quality. For example Pokemon Go, while seemingly a pretty neat geocaching skin, doesn't seem to be much of a game, never mind the best mobile game of the year. Also after everything it seems like a pretty false note to give Street Fighter V a game of the year award. Agree? Disagree? Thoughts?

Yeah, Pokemon Go was a neat cultural touchstone but as a game it was an actual broken mess until like a couple months ago, when it became an unremarkable geocache thing. I think others, particularly FE: Fates (even if the localization was FAR worse than Awakening), deserved the win.

Also, I like Boogie but O'Dwyer is clearly the superior human.

Here's my hot game awards upset moment for you.

I'm upset that the game awards get any attention whatsoever.

Street Fighter V was by far the best fighting game of the year. Why wouldn't it get the award?
