Over 340,000 attendees descended on Cologne to see what the biggest in the business had to offer at Gamescom 2013
, with the upcoming battle between Microsoft
next-gen consoles taking center stage. So what came out on top?
According to this year's Gamescom Awards, pretty much the games you'd expect. Bungie's
MMO-shooter hybrid Destiny
took home the award for Best PlayStation game, along with Best Action Game, Best Online Multiplayer Game, and Best of Gamescom. Meanwhile, ZeniMax Online
and Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls Online
walked with Best Role-Playing Game and Best Social/Casual/Online Game. Gaijin Entertainment's War Thunder
was named Best Simulation Game.
Other awards were meted out to non-MMO contenders; Titanfall, Forza 5, Mario Kart 8, FIFA 14, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds,
and Battlefield 4
all ended up with some sort of official recognition.
