Viewers also had their chance to voice their opinions. They picked the winners for three awards, including Most Anticipated Game:

Most Anticipated Game (Viewer Voted)
  • Destiny
  • Titanfall
  • South Park: The Stick of Truth
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
  • Watch Dogs
Character of the Year (Viewer Voted)
  • Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)

Best Mobile Game (Viewer Voted)
  • Angry Birds: Star Wars
  • Infinity Blade 3
  • Plants vs. Zombies: It’s About Time
  • Ridiculous Fishing
There are a lot of winners to argue about here. One that jumped out at me was the Lutece Twins winning Character of the Year. For starters, they probably should've been disqualified because there's two of them. Furthermore, I think we can all agree that Trevor had a far more dynamic personality and - oh god, I can't anymore. It doesn't matter. The award is an Internet poll.

What do you think of the winners list? Did the critics and fans get it right? Do you care?
