Here Are Your Game Awards 2016 Winners

The Game Awards 2016 just wrapped in Los Angeles, CA. This year’s show provided several new game announcements, first looks at games, and plenty of memorable and emotional moments. Blizzard’s team-based shooter Overwatch was the big winner, walking away with four separate awards, including Game of the Year.
