The Witcher III GDC GotY

The 16th annual Game Developers Choice Awards were handed out last night as part of the ongoing Game Developers Conference, and this press release announces all the winners. The Witcher III: Wild Hunt took home game of the year honors, and CD Projekt RED's RPG sequel was also honored for Best Technology. The most awards went to Her Story, which won for Innovation, Best Narrative, and Best Handheld/Mobile. Her Story was also the most honored game at the 18th annual Independent Games Festival Awards, taking home the Seumas McNally Grand Prize, and this announcement has all the details on those awards. For those interested in the presentations and the speeches, they are recorded for posterity in this Twitch stream, which warns that portions of the audio are muted over possible copyright concerns, because lawyers. The ceremony also included the awarding of the previously announced Pioneer award for Markus "Notch" Persson and Lifetime Achievement award for Bethesda's Todd Howard.

Fuckin' A, man. For a moment I really thought that this would be the announcement of the GOTY or Enhanced Edition. More waiting... *sigh*

Same. Oh well, tons of games in the queue in the meantime.

Also, Darkest Dungeon got robbed, not even a video or audio award? Ridiculous! Even if the gameplay is a grind, arguably the best art design of any of last year's indie games, aside from possibly Oni and the Blind Forest.

I am tempted to buy Her Story now after the awards, but it still looks like an old school video clip game, aka extremely boring with zero replayability.
