If you’ll allow me a personal comment (and even if you won’t), i’d like to mention that it’s nice to finally see someone recognize Bloodborne, I was starting to wonder, really.
Something else I wonder is what kind of good stuff whoever decided to nominate The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for best Persistent Game.
You know that I absolutely love the game, and it’s actually my personal game of the year, but I don’t think “persistent” means what they think it means. Unless they mean “selling persistently for the whole year,” I guess.
