The Game Awards 2017

Posted By: GamerDating - December 08, 2017


The Game Awards 2017, the fourth event honouring the best video games and their achievements of the year.

This year was hosted by Geoff Keighley, best known from GameTrailers TV and G4tv.com. 

The event is life-streamed and often criticised for padding out trailers and awards with endless adverts, this year was no different but offered a huge array of awards, funny rants and interviews, even featuring Josef Fares, developer of Tale of Two Brothers saying "Fuck the Oscars" in a passionate rant about his new game, another Co-op.
