The Game Awards has certainly had its ups and downs over the years, but there’s no denying it has grown as an awards show in terms of size and spectacle. Last year’s show had several noteworthy moments including Splatoon winning out Best Multiplayer Game over the likes of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and Star Wars Battlefront, Konami getting called out for not allowing Hideo Kojima to accept his reward, and a short tribute of the late Satoru Iwata by NOA president Reggie Fils-Amié.
