Witcher 3 it is. Hopefully Keighley's bias towards Kojima won't influentiate the winner. Although this is the game awards, so who cares anyway.

Arkham Knight is the best game I have played this year, deserved a nomination IMO.

My pick from that list would be The Witcher.

I'm going to take a shot in the dark and guess that the GOTY winner will be the big game that just released and is fresh in everyone's minds.

Like it was last year.

Man, what a fantastic year for games. One of my favorites in a long time. More than made up for last year's shitshow.

Solid predictions:
Witcher 3 gets GOTY, Narrative and Soundtrack
Kojima Productions gets Dev of Year (even thought CD Projeck deserves it a lot more) and MGS V gets Action Adventure
Undertale for Best Indie and Game for Change
Halo 5 gets Best Shooter
Fallout 4 gets Best RPG
Bloodborne gets Art Direction
Rocket League gets Multiplayer and Sports
Splatoon gets Family Game
Fallout Shelter gets Mobile
Mark Hamill gets Best Performance

Having both Splatoon and Mario Maker, the state splatoon released in was way fucking worse tham Mario Maker.

Sigh.

Soma should have been nominated for best narrative at least.

That game easily had the most thought provoking and memorable story of any game I've played this year.

Mario Maker is fun, but I wouldn't call it a GOTY candidate. Splatoon definitely should've been the Nintendo rep, and I know these sort of things undersell Indie games but Undertale and Rocket League are deserving of being up there too.
