My view:

Yes I hear you, Life Is Strange was so close in many. I am myself a LIS fan. Know that the votings closed before Episode 5 of LIS came out. Many people (35% from the poll I made on fb) played the game after Episode 5 came out to play them all at the same time. Even so LIS did great.

I expected Metal Gear Solid to show up a bit more but it didn’t so that was a surprise.

Ultimate Game Of The Year #2 spot: Batman Arkham Knight. I don’t think it deserves the #2 spot. My personal opinion but GTA 5 could be there in it’s place. The Witcher 3 definitely deserves to be in the top 3 there and so does Life Is Strange.

Favourite lines from Danny Wallace during the event:

“Assassin’s Creed Syndicate came out last week. Just in time for Unity to start working properly.”

“The biggest villain in Batman Arkham Knight this year was definitely the performance of the game.”

LIS Fans on chat:


Hope you enjoyed the event, I’ll see you next time. – Ken Xyro
