Unlike any other award show, this year’s The Game Awards was jam-packed with World Premiers and announcements, but the moment that really top all off was a small segment of Josef Fares, CEO of Hazelight and Writer/Director of A Way Out, with host Goeff Keighley, which was downright hilarious and has been already declared as “The Best Moment” out of The Game Awards 2017.
It all started when Geoff Keighley called out Josef to talk about his new upcoming co-op only game A Way Out, where he announced the release date and a free friend trial pass for the same, but it seems like Josef had come to the show for breaking the ice. He talked about serious issue (like EA’s MTX/Loot Crates controversy) casually and also blessed Oscars very politely.

Josef Fares is my hero. I wish I could speak as candidly and passionately about my work as he does about his new game. Sure it’s probably a nightmare for PR, but he’s so god damn interesting and there’s no one out there that wouldn’t take him at his word. #TheGameAwards
