All the winners from The Game Awards 2019

Most folks show up for The Game Awards for the new games and announcements. But, despite the dozens of trailers at the event, its core conceit is still to give the game industry an international stage on which to recognize the truly outstanding games of the previous year. There’s even a few surprises, and this year was no exception.

The Game Awards 2019 had 29 categories ranging from best esports coach to best indie game. The nominees for all of the awards are selected by a jury of 80 media and influencer outlets, Polygon among them. After all of the nominees are decided, the winners are chosen based on 90 percent of the votes from the nominating jury and 10 percent from a fan vote.

From Software’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice took home the night’s top prize for overall Game of the Year and also won Best Action/Adventure Game. The night’s biggest winner was probably Disco Elysium, which won all four categories it was nominated in including Narrative, Role-Playing Game, Independent Game, and Fresh Indie Game.
