The nominees for the official 2014 Gamescom Awards were announced well before Gamescom itself kicked off. For games to have been nominated, the publishers had to have paid a nominal fee – which makes them all a little suspect. In the end the winners were decided upon by a group of judges. Here’s who they selected as winners of Gamescom.

It’s interesting to see that this year’s Pro Evo Soccer has beaten out this year’s FIFA, but there are a few reasons for that. Firstly, EA didn’t pay for any of its games to be nominated, plus the games up for nomination would have had to have never been shown in a public space in the German market before.

It’s likely also why Risen 3 won over Dragon Age 3, or The Witcher 3 as the best role playing game – though the Germans do love their German-made RPGs.  The only award decided upon by consumers was the most wanted, an award that Super Smash Bros for the Wii U walked away with.

The game that won best of E3’s everything, Evolve, once again made a sweep of the awards, grabbing, best PC Game, best multiplayer and the overall game of show.

Look out for our own awards later this week.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
