It’s December, and that means it’s game awards time! Longtime games journalist Geoff Keighley has brought The Game Awards back for the third consecutive year, and the show just wrapped up. Throughout the nearly two and a half hour presentation, we saw tons of new trailers, musical performances, and of course, accolades for games from the past year. Blizzard’s smash hit Overwatch was the big winner of The Game Awards this year with four total awards, including Game of the Year.
