Our TakeEveryone who has touched Titanfall seems to walk away with a new outlook on life, or at least video games. Destiny seems to offer a similar revelation. Mario Kart 8 also seems to be turning some heads. Maybe that will be the game that turns everything around for the Wii U.

These awards seem to step on each others toes like crazy. How is Titanfall (an online only thing) the best OVERALL game, but not best online game for show?
destiny for the win!!!!!!!!
So Titanfall won best overall next-gen but not best action? Where is the logic? Someone enlighten me.
i knew PS4 would be the best
Come on its gonna be 360 vs ps3 all over again hardware doesn't make it the best every game that won is on xbox except nintendos games but so just a waste of time both system are good but xbox is gonna win either way
Yeah I'm gonna be trying Destiny and Titanfall when they come out. Both look legit as fug
It's because mostly press goes there. Sony didn't win with anything that doesn't happen on the One. But Microsoft got some good ones.
God i wish these console would come out and be over with already,seems like gaming websites are fueling the sony bandwagon, and now us pc gamers are being attacked.
