The Game Awards created an amazing viewing experience last night, hosted by Geoff Keighley. From the orchestra to the reveals it was a quite an experience – even if we’re still arguing over whether Vacation Simulator is going to be worth playing.
Then, of course, we had an overwhelming amount of VR announcements.

Then we had some amazing wins for the women gamers. Encouraging young girls to go into science and math is great, but gaming, that’s going to be the next place women rule.
Yay for the woman icon in games! Let’s get more of our girls into the industry! #TheGameAwards
