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.

If Destiny won best online game and Titanfall is online only, wouldn't Destiny be the best next gen game? I'm a bit confused...
I wonder what will be the better game, Destiny or Titanfall? They both garner huge buzz so I wonder what'll be better.
Care less what next gen console won. I wait for the official 2013 game awards this is rather short and mainly about next gen : /
Mario Kart 8 is definitely on my list for Wii U, but first gonna get Wind Waker HD, as I believe along with Pikmin 3, that's gonna be the catalyst that gets Nintendo going with Mario Kart 8 making Wii U go full throttle (pun intended). I feel confident in Titanfall but still skeptical about Destiny. Also, since when did portable and mobile gaming become the same thing? If anything, mobile gaming is no match for portable gaming so in the future I'd like it if they change that category to 'Portable Gaming' and set 'Mobile Gaming' for the reject games on phones and tablets; phone and tablets pale in comparison to handhelds/portables such as 3DS and Vita, though many young gamers in the younger generation have been brainwashed to believe otherwise mostly because of the economy which is just stupid if you ask me. Why do you think devs who were on iOS and Android are now going to the Wii U and 3DS eShop? Because Nintendo knows portable gaming and console gaming especially is still prominent in today's world. Anybody correct me if I'm wrong.
To everyone complaining about the Hardware including Peripheral category.
It doesnt matter if the device doesnt come with the peripheral, if there is a peripheral for it,it is included in the judging.
Therefore PS4 may not come with the eye but the eye is included in the judging because it is a peripheral you can add to the PS4
LOL, the best PS4 game is a multi-plat! How PS4 won "Best Console" award is beyond me.
Sony won all 3 major gaming shows this year? Awesome! (note, TGS hasn't happened yet, but it's safe to say they'll easily win TGS)
