The Game Awards took place last night, and as always, the event was a mixture of hype for the past year in games (with God of War winning the overused-into-meaninglessness title of Game of the Year), and advertising for the upcoming one. This can only mean one thing: an almost unnavigable sea of trailers. Don’t worry: we’ve narrowed them down a little bit, and given some context for each game. Obsidian, aggressively touting its designers' status as the “original” developers of Fallout (some might say in an unsportsmanlike fashion, given the abject failure of Bethesda’s Fallout 76), had the best announcement of the night, in the form of The Outer Worlds, which looks like a combination of Fallout, Mass Effect, and Guardians of the Galaxy.

Despite its overly corporate sheen, the annual Game Awards show has slowly become one of the key dates on the gaming calendar. Taking over from Spike TV’s long-running Video Game Awards show in 2014, The Game Awards began life as a celebration of the year’s best games, but is now more anticipated as a glimpse into the next. With most of the year’s games on shelves by the time the December show rolls around, The Game Awards has become the venue of choice for publishers to announce new titles and shed more light on upcoming ones.
