The Game Awards 2019 Winners!

The Game Awards produced and hosted by Geoff Keighley is like the super bowl of gaming where a committee of gaming news professionals nominate the year’s games until there is a winner. 2019 was another mixed bag of surprise or “not so surprised” nominations gamers have been getting used to since 2014 when the first Game Awards show first aired. What is obviously evolving though is the content creator and creative side of games as more and more categories get added to the “best of” list.
