The Game Awards 2019: All The Winners Announced (VIDEO)

The yearly celebration of gaming is finally upon us with The Game Awards 2019, with many of the latest and greatest games, developers, and personalities getting their due during the highly-publicized event. While the proceedings had plenty of extras to enjoy such as the numerous teased reveals and the demo-drop dubbed ‘The Game Festival,’ the people behind these experiences were also honored with awards across numerous notable categories.

Disco Elysium walked away with the triple-feat of Best Narrative, Best RPG, and Best Independent Game, while Control received Best Art Direction and Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding stood atop in Best Direction and Best Score\Music categories. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate won the fight of Best Fighting Game and Devil May Cry 5 slayed in the Action Game genre, while Mads Mikkelsen was recognized for his performance in Death Stranding and the top Multiplayer title was revealed as Respawn’s Apex Legends. However, the title that ultimately came away with the coveted Game of the Year accolade was none other than Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, which also won for Best Action/Adventure.

Across the other categories, Fire Emblem: Three Houses took over as Best Strategy Game, Gris received the Games For Impact award, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled crossed the finish-line as Best Racing Game, and Fortnite yet again brought down the ‘Ongoing Game’ competition. Bungie earned the Best Community Support award for Destiny 2, Beat Saber took a slice out of its VR rivals, Luigi’s Mansion 3 spookified the Family Game category, and the Call of Duty series took home trophies for Best Audio Design (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare) and Best Mobile Game (Call of Duty: Mobile).

As with last year, eSports featured prominently during the ceremony, awarding Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf as Esports Player of the Year, League of Legends bested the Esports Games, Worlds 2019 reigned as the year’s Best Esports Event, while Danny “Zonic” Sørensen and Eefje “Sjokz” Depoortere won for Best Esports Coach and Host respectively. Lastly, in the race for Content Creator of the Year, recently-joined Mixer streamer Shroud was named the victor.
