Last night, the most important gala in the video game industry took place. For traditional press, The Game Awards are like the Oscars of cinema. There’s a lot of anticipation, the red carpet is packed, and if you win, you can proudly display the trophy in your studio’s showcase.

For this reason, The Game Awards are awards followed by millions of players worldwide. And not just players: fans, developers, studios, press, etc.

Millions of people gather in front of the TV until the early hours of the morning (it ended at 5 a.m. yesterday) following the awards and announcements of new video games.

Without further ado, let’s go through all the winners of the night, reviewing all the categories that had a trophy at stake. The way we’ve chosen to present the nominees and winners might seem lengthy, but last night, more than 20 awards were given out, and you wouldn’t want to miss any. Let’s get started!
