Well, the game awards as come and go and like any award show, there were some great announcements, a few surprises, and a whole lot of angry people, but overall it was pretty good, so here what stood out to me.
When it comes to announcements, we really had some cool developers who worked on previous franchises come back and make spiritual successes. one of them is called back 4 blood, like a four-player co-op your friends work together and kill some zombies. It from the creators of Left 4 Dead, and it pretty much looks like Left 4 Dead.
Then we have a horror game called The Callisto Protocol from the same studio and creator of Dead space, and I got to say it looks interesting, but we won’t know what exactly it is until 2022, so that’s a bummer :/
Then a surprise sequel to A old franchise was announced call perfect dark, which is basically James Bond with a female lead but of course, there’s more to it than that, but I’m excited to see what they can do with the series since the last game in the franchise was on the 360 and let’s say it didn’t turn out so well.
Last but not least, you know you can’t have an award show without a surprising announcement from smash Brothers and it was surprising to see they added final fantasy 7 sephiroth into the game.
Now talk about the most interesting part, which is the winners, and I got to say it was a bloodbath because the last of us part two pretty much took home most of the awards.
Those awards include:
Game of the year
Best performance Laura Bailey as Abby
Best Audio Design
Best game direction
That’s seven awards, pretty much half of the awards, and after going on Twitter and seeing the reaction, I got to say it was so entertaining seeing people argue about the game when most of them didn’t even play the game.
That being said, some games won some awards.
Those awards were:
Best art direction: Ghost of Tsushima
Best score/music: final fantasy VII remake

There’s a link to some more winners, but the point is At the end of the day is your game didn’t get a reward and just got nominated. It’s okay as long as you love it, and it touches you very personally. That’s all that matters. At the end of the day, everybody wins.
