Dragon Age: Inquisition Swipes Another Game of the Year Award at South by Southwest

Last night at the second annual South by Southwest (SXSW) festival, Dragon Age: Inquisition won yet another Game of the Year award. which isn't so much of a surprise given that it was given the same accolade at DICE 2015 and it won our Game of the Year award too.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor walked away with three awards, though the festival also honored plenty of indie titles in achievement-specific categories like This War of Mine and Transistor.

Below is a full list of the SXSW gaming awards. Do you agree with the winners? Is Dragon Age: Inquisition overrated or perhaps did it win because the other games in 2014 didn't live up to the hype?
