So there’s the list. Just going to add this personal thought: A change needs to be made on the platform awards. They should be a list of games specific to the platform and not include multiplatform games. It’s a bit telling that in the Best Xbox Game category, not one of those games are an Xbox exclusive. Under the Best Playstation Games, only one listed is exclusive. The Nintendo category has the most exclusives for the platform listed. Something that, in my opinion, should be changed. Bit it’s what we have to deal with now. So-  Who do you think will win? Who do you think should win? Are there any games you think got the cold shoulder and should have appeared as a nominee? Let us know in the comments below, and stay tuned for our coverage of the VGX winners.
