2015 has been a phenomenal year in video games. So much so, that it’s almost embarrassing to every other year (apart from 2004) for their lack of huge titles.

Last night, the 2015 VGAs were held in America, honouring the year in video games in the two hour event. The show gave prizes in 22 different categories ranging from Best Art Direction to Game of the Year.
