The title of Destiny surprised many different reviews with its bare-bone plot. Destiny is a first-person shooter alien game. Bungie, the company that made Destiny, released Destiny after quitting their famous Halo series.
Some people were shocked because, lots of other big-name games that walked away with out a prize. Some of those games were, MarioKart8, Call of Duty; Advanced Warfare, and Assassin's Creed: Unity. Those games were the biggest budget nominees. Many of the winners of the awards were related as the David-Goliath story. Even OlliOlli, a skateboard game made by Roll7, beat FIFA 15 and Forza Horizon 2 for best sports video game.
And the game that won the Best Persistent Game, was League of Legends, a famous online videogame. The game that won the award for original property was Valiant Hearts, a game based of WW1. And Minecraft won for best family game.
