    "Best Original Game

    NO."

    Jeez, ok then, bout a 9 on the tension scale there.

    I'm surprised Dragon Age knocked off The Witcher...?

    Titanfall got these accolades too. Most mediocre game I've ever played.

    For a game with so many awards I haven't seen any stories or articles about it since well before E3.
    How about a review (preview) Kotaku? Or is there nothing new to report since the last big article?

    Evolve is an original game so why didn't it win that category?

    Online multiplayer only games bore me. Give me a single player campaign.
