Winners of The Game Awards 2020 »Vortex announced

While announcing The Game Awards, various announcements are taking up more and more space every year, but we must not forget the fact that this is still a ceremony during which the best games of the past year are announced.

The Last of Us had the most nominations and won the most awards

There are definitely a few interesting things worth mentioning in this context. The most prizes, a total of seven, were eventually won by The Last of Us Part II from the Naughty Dog studio, including the one for the best game ever. But the games Among Among Us, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Hades and Ghost of Tsushima also did well. They collected these titles at two awards.

The Last of Us Part II entered the announcement with the largest number of nominations. The game was nominated in a total of 10 categories. So, as you can see, she was very successful in changing prices. Hades had eight nominations, Ghost of Tsushima seven, Final Fantasy VII Remake six and Doom Eternal, Fall Guys and Half-Life: Alyx four each.

New category and mixed genres

As usual, some categories have caused some embarrassment. For example, the fact that the organizers mix simulators and strategies together (won by Microsoft Flight Simulator) or sports and racing games, where Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 won. .

During the evening, a number of personalities also joined or performed directly on stage – Keanu Reaves, Gal Gadot, Tom Holland, Christopher Nolan, Brie Larson, Troy Baker, Nolan North, Reggie Fils-Aimé or singer Eddie Vedder. There were also musical inserts such as the song Future Days by the band Pearl Jam, which was heard in The Last of Us Part II.

Below you can see an extensive list of categories and individual winners.
