We’re all for Zelda Breath of the Wild winning awards — it’s an awesome game, after all. But its latest award makes us a bit suspicious.
Breath of the Wild won the coveted Best Game award at GamesCom 2016. But the game wasn’t even playable to the public. Only a few dozen players — winners of a contest — got to play it behind closed doors.
And yet it was crowned with the “Best of Gamescom” award as well as best console game for Wii U.
The game won a similar award at E3, but there it was playable to the public, where people stood in line for hours for a chance to play it. In fact, the line was 8 hours long, the longest in E3 history.
Winners of the other categories were all playable at the show, such as Battlefield 1 (Best Action game), For Honor (Best PC and PS4 game), Sea of Thieves (Best Xbox One game), and Little Nightmares (Best Indie game).
