Quite a bit happened at Gamescom, but I was most interested in what games and consoles would receive rewards at the Gamescom 2013 Awards. This is especially interesting to find out because of the next gen console war around the corner, and the results were what many had already expected.

In the official Gamescom Awards 2013, a lot of different categories were announced. Most of the awards were already expected to win, so there really wasn't many surprises. At the forefront of the awards, Titanfall managed to bag both the best Xbox One game, and the best next generation game.

On top of this, the PlayStation 4 managed to grab the 'best hardware incl peripheral' title, leaving the Xbox One behind in the dust.

Interestingly, Forza Motorsport 5, and not Drive Club, managed to grab the best racing game award.

Destiny seemed to hold the most awards out of every winner though, and the game won Best console game on PlayStation, Best Action game, and Best Online Multiplayer game. Elder Scrolls and Titanfall came in close second with best social/casual/online game, best role playing game, and best next gen console game and best Xbox one game respectively.
