Gamescom

The Gamescom Awards are always a little weird. The nominees for this year’s 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, along with a host of other little rules – which makes them all a little suspect. In the end the winners were decided upon by a group of judges from German and international publications and retailers. Here’s who they selected as winners of Gamescom this year

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.
