The Witcher 3 took home the grand prize at this year’s 2015 Game Awards, beating out Bloodborne, Fallout 4, Metal Gear Solid V, and Super Mario Maker to win Game of the Year.

It’s no surprise that CD Projekt Red’s role-playing game took top honors—The Witcher 3 is one of the year’s most ambitious and successful video games. Developed in Poland over three and a half year, The Witcher 3 has received rave reviews from just about everybody, fans and critics alike.

Other winners—which you can view here—included Rocket League for best independent game, Her Story for best narrative, and Lara Croft Go for best handheld/mobile game.

DISCUSSION

Man I wish W3 wasn’t getting as much praise, it just feel like the bar is being massively lowered. It doesn’t matter if your game come out super buggy (and still has quest that are impossible to complete 6+ month after release), it doesn’t matter if you ship with awful control that you have to patch, it doesn’t matter if your combat system is incredibly dull and lack any variety, it doesn’t matter if 80% of your side quest are just repetition of the same things over and over, it doesn’t matter if your main quest is just a very loose connection of side quest (kid you not, one part of the quest involve saving someone so they can tell you were someone else is so you can save them so they can tell you were someone else is so you can save them so they can tell you were someone else is). All that matter is having a dark brooding mood, ass and boob and promise a bunch of DLC (some of which are bugged on release).
