Surprised Pokemon Go won. So many people here were trashing it but I guess there are a lot of people who don't comment.

Septic680d ago

Mobile gaming. No one really gives a shit lol

TXIDarkAvenger680d ago (Edited 680d ago )

Eh, mobile gaming included handheld games like Pokemon Sun/Moon and I think Fire Emblem. Not many play on handhelds here anyways and I Pokemon GO is obviously more accessible.

I'd wager 99% of the people that come to this site never comment.

Anyhow, I don't know if I'd consider it that great of a game, but it was certainly wan an impactful game, which in itself can make it worthy of the award.
