Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice scores top prize at the Game Awards

0

Is this an upset?

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is an excellent game. Without a doubt, one of the best to release in all of 2019. But going into the Game Awards tonight, I didn't expect it to walk away with any trophies at all. The categories it was nominated in were super competitive this year, especially the game of the year award. So when Vin Diesel read the winner's name from the envelope, my jaw dropped. This victory may be the most surprising of the Keighley-produced shows since Telltale's The Walking Dead shambled off with the overall award.

Below is the list of all the winners, including the esports stuff you don't care about. A round of applause for the developers behind the winning games, especially Disco Elysium, which absolutely cleaned house -- or House House -- tonight.
