The Game Awards 2019, one of the most prestigious annual award ceremonies in the gaming industry, took place in Los Angeles.
The role-playing game “Disco Elysium” became the leader in the number of awards – it won all four nominations in which the game was represented, including “Best RPG” and “Best Indie Game”.
The favorite of the ceremony was “Death Stranding”. However, the game managed to get only three statuettes in spite of the fact it was represented in four nominations. The jury put a high value on the direction and soundtrack of the novelty, as well as Mads Mikkelsen’s performance.
One of the most unexpected moments of the ceremony was the fact that “Devil May Cry V” was awarded the title of the best action. However, the biggest surprise happened in the final of the ceremony, when the game of the year was announced. Surprisingly, the main prize was not taken by “Death Stranding” or even “Resident Evil 2” but by “Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice”. It has also been named the best action-adventure game.
Besides, at the ceremony, developers traditionally made several major announcements. In particular, Microsoft presented the name of the next-generation Xbox – the Xbox Series X – and showed how it would look.
As mentioned earlier, FunPlus Phoenix from China became the best team of the League of Legends World Championship 2019.
