      In an event in Toronto last night (December 7), the 2015 winners of the Canadian Videogame Awards were announced.

      Ubisoft Quebec's Assassin's Creed Syndicate, which takes place in London, England, during the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, was selected as the best game of the year. 

      The game also won for best animation, best audio, and best visual arts. The fraternal twin protagonists of the game were chosen as best new characters.

      Bioware's Dragon Age: Inquisition got nods for best console game and best writing.

      The only B.C. developer to pick up awards was Klei Entertainment, which nabbed trophies for Invisible Inc (best downloadable and best indie game) and Don't Starve Pocket Edition (best original music).

      The event was hosted by presenters of EP Daily and Reviews on the Run, and also included a number of actors who work in the video game industry.
