Geoff Keighley’s annual award show for video games is more than just an award show. The Game Awards is a place where some pretty sizable announcements and reveals actually take place in between the awards and the guest appearances of people who do not work in the games industry. If you missed the show (or checked out because it was extremely long), here’s all the news, trailers, and other announcements that took place:
