2016 Video Game Awards Winners

The annual Video Game Awards took place on December 1st 2016. This is the first year that I have sat and watched the whole thing, and I was not disappointed at all. Overwatch and Uncharted 4 seemed to be the names I heard the most but I also heard of the game Inside from an independent studio. This is one of the reasons that I enjoy watching this event. They do give a lot of time to the big games but its nice to see them do something for the independent companies as well. Well enough of that its time for the winners!
