The Game Awards 2019 – did your favourite win?

Death Stranding, Disco Elysium, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice have become the big winners of The Game Awards 2019.

The longest night of the year for gaming is finally over, as The Game Awards wrap and all the new game announcements and award winners are revealed.

Now in its fifth year, The Game Awards is a peculiar event that is half the video game equivalent of the Oscars and half a venue to announce new games.

As usual, many of the reveals were just pre-rendered trailers, some just a few seconds long, and yet the whole thing managed to go on for over three hours (we’d swear it was meant to finish at 3.30am but it didn’t end till 4.40am GMT).

It was all very… American, with endless, repetitive, adverts that were barely distinguishable from the actual reveals. And yet there were lots of very positive moments too, not just in terms of the reveals – such as the Xbox Series X console and the PlayStation 5 launch title Godfall – but also the Global Game Citizen segments.

These focused on female Afghan game developers, a game charity to help military veterans, and a young gamer talking about how he designs games in Roblox to raise awareness about mental health issues after his father committed suicide.

And then of course there was the awards themselves, which you can find the complete list for below. We were one of the international judges and while we have to say not many of our choices won it’s still a decent set of results.

The Game of the Year award went to FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, while Death Stranding picked up three awards for Best Game Direction, Best Score/Music, and Mads Mikkelsen for Best Performance.

That’s still the most of any other game but perhaps less than was expected given the controversy over presenter/organiser Geoff Keighley being best friends with Hideo Kojima.
