Gaming Awards - Best Online Game

Best Online Game

Our selection of online games is not limited to the traditional gaming platforms of PC and Consoles. Online games are now a popular genre even on mobile platforms too. Online games are as its name imply - games that require an online connectivity and have multiplayer components. They are split into the F2P (Free-to-play) and Subscription/Paid categories, and we also took that into account when choosing the winner from our nominees.

 

Nominees:

  • Overwatch
  • Pokémon Go
  • World of Warcraft: Legion

 

And the winner is...

Overwatch

Overwatch is a complex, but accessible, team shooter that made a big impact this year. The near-future, paramilitary, pseudo-superhero world of Overwatch that Blizzard chose to tell us about was exhilarating. One of its greatest strengths is its presentation. It’s as clean and colorful as a Pixar movie (with murder), with expressive animations in every character, gun model, and ability effect. There’s no corner of any map that hasn’t been made to feel like a cohesive part of Overwatch’s politically fraught cartoon world. And oh, those Loot boxes.
