Yesterday the Gamescom Awards 2018 were made public and we have some well deserved winners in multiple categories. Some of these titles we played during the first day of Gamescom 2018 and we can only agree with the final results.

A special shout out has to go to Microsoft and Activision/Blizzard this year as they both brought home not 1, but 3 awards: Microsoft for their games Ori and the Will of the Wisps and Forza Horizon 4, and Activision/Blizzard for their games, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Destiny 2: Forsaken.
