The Game Awards honors video game developers by rewarding them with trophies. Although, Geoff Keighley does blitz through some of the award categories, resulting in many winners unable to actually receive a trophy.

The voters are first and foremost gamers. I do enjoy watching my favorite Video Games of 2017 getting rewards such as 'Persona 5,' 'Cuphead,' and 'Overwatch.' Unsurprisingly, 'The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild' won Best Game Direction and Game of the Year.

The Game Awards also released a ton of trailers for upcoming games or additional content for games that are already out.

Pre-show awards

Before the show officially started, there was a trailer for a 'World War Z' video game. It appears to be a crazy version of 'Left for Dead'

'Vacation Simulator' and 'Accounting+' were both Announced, and they are VR games. 'Vacation Simulator' looks like a fun game to kill an hour with. 'Accounting+' trailer looked overwhelming. The developers came across like they wanted to show as much as possible in a set time frame. After watching the trailer, I got a headache from how fastpaced it was, but the game does look entertaining.

From Software, creators of 'Dark Souls' and 'Bloodborne', left a tiny tease about their upcoming game. I believe they can get away with showing as little as possible because gamers and fans know what kind of games they produce.

Their video games are great, beautiful, and insanely unique in terms of creating environments, characters, and enemies.

TGA 2017 begins

Campo Santo, developers of Firewatch, had the honor of revealing the first video game trailer to their new game 'In The Valley of Gods.' It's a beautiful looking game, and I would venture a guess that it's an exploration game.

The trailer showcases the player following possibly a friend or sibling through Egyptian ruins.

Rock Star unveiled its trailer for 'Grandtheft Auto Online Doomsday Heist.' Jetpacks, doomsday devices, flying cars, armed helicopters, blastic missile launchers, and one big heist. What doesn't sound entertaining about any of those things?

'The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild' had a trailer for additional DLC called the Champions Ballad. There are new creatures and environments in this trailer. The trailer shows some new dungeons such as a water shrine, a dungeon with lava and spikey traps, and a mechanical sky dungeon.

A game that I'm personally very excited for was revealed, 'Soul Calibur VI.' The game displays Mitsurgi, a samurai character, fighting against, Sophitia, an Athenian warrior. The gameplay looks fastpaced as usual and some moves have awesome energy infused effects. There may be new blocking animations in this new installment. When Mitsurgi is attacking with his katana, Sophitia swings her shield each time to block every one of his slashes.

The character models and the stage design look gorgeous. I can't wait to get my hands on this game.

'Fade to Silence' had its world premiere which I thought was underwhelming; especially, for a game that will be playable December 14th. It is a wintry looking post-apocalyptic game. It didn't really show much which is a dilemma for a new IP (intellectual property). This game is being developed by THQ Nordic.

The 'Bayonetta' and 'Bayonetta 2' trailers informed us that these titles are being remade for the Nintendo Switch. Reggie Fils-Aime, President of Nintendo of America, took the stage for the additional announcement of 'Bayonetta 3,' coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch. All these games will be available for the Nintendo Switch.

Death Stranding Trailer

'Death Stranding' is a highly anticipated video game that Kojima and his studio are working on. Also, Norman Reedus is in the game which is awesome. In the trailer, Norman Reedus is explaining how in the beginning the big bang happened, and then life was created, and now another big bang is happening that will kill all life.

Norman Reedus's character looks identical to him, so much so that its kind of scary. His buddies get killed by a strange invisible creature(s?). Norman also grabs hold of a baby and becomes basically impregnated with the child. It's a Hideo Kojima game, he's going to make you keep asking questions. Will he answer any of them? Maybe, maybe not.

At the end, Norma Reedus is looking off into the distance with five floating human-like figures, which I think are potential bosses of the game.

I can't wait for this crazy looking game to be released. I'm sure it's going to be incredible.

Video game world premieres continued

'Witchfire' is a new IP developed by the creators of 'The Vanishing of Ethan Carter,' 'Bullet Storm,' and 'Painkiller.' This first-person shooter looks amazing. The graphics are gorgeous and the gameplay looks smooth and fun. I am happy to see that there are some special abilities in this game, which will be sure to keep the game exciting.

'A Way Out' is a co-op based game. It's nice to see someone trying to bring co-op games back. Unfortunately, The game looks average. The movement of the characters definitely looks clunky, but the graphics look decent. The story was made unclear, even though the game looks very reliant on its story.

A game called 'Dreams' made its world premiere. In this game, you can create your own games and play them. It looks very pretty and a cool idea for a game.

'PUBG' ('Player Unknown Battleground') is the most played video game on Steam today. It showed off its new desert map and vehicles. It was announced to be playable in its early stage on the Xbox One console exclusively on December 12th, 2017.

'GTFO' is a game developed by the people who made 'Payday' and 'Payday 2.' The game reminds me a lot of an 'Aliens' the movie, and how I would like an 'Aliens' video game to look. I think this game has potential, but I think the title could've been better. It looks dark, creepy, and action-packed.

A new 'Metro' video game was announced, 'Metro Exodus.' This snowy post-apocalyptic game looks stunning.

The plot of the game seems to involve you actively search for more life in the seemingly uninhabitable land. It will be released in Fall 2018. I'm curious to see where this game goes.

There were a lot of cool looking video games announced at The Game Awards, and there are a few that I already feel I have to buy. The games I'm definitely picking up just from these trailers are, 'Death Stranding,' 'Soul Calibur VI,' and 'Bayonetta 3.' I'm very curious about 'Witchfire' because it's a new IP and looks outstanding.
