Dragon Age Inquisition is the Best Game of the Year 2014. After more than two hours, the The Game Awards 2014 awarded their prizes at a ceremony highlighted by the large number of exclusives that were presented, but also by the slow pace and bored of it.

The title of Bioware, as already stressed, was the winner of the night to be the most coveted statuette, although others such as Far Cry 4, Shadows of Mordor or Mario Kart 8 (the latter two awards) also won their respective trophies.
