Los Angeles, thousands of names were put forward by many astounding developers. If we look at the winners of this night, then we will notice that one of the best things about this year’s Game Awards was that it wasn’t ruled by a limited set of developers or games instead of a whole lot of variety of the games won the awards.

The best action game was won by Devil May Cry 5 while Disco Elysium won the best debut indie game, independent game and role-playing game award as well.

The winners for the award are selected 90% by jury and 10% by fan voting. Both of which play a critical role in the winning of a game. As a dedicated gamer, I was also excited about the Game of the year 2019. My votes were for Death stranding.

NOt only me but thousands of other gamers were also hoping for the win of Hideo Kojima game; Death stranding. Fans were torn into 2 games the other half of the fan base was fixated on the win of control.

But the results of the award surprised everyone as the winner dor the game of the year award 2019 was the action-adventure game by from software aka Sekiro: shadows die twice.

Nobody was expecting this win. Sekiro From software also managed to secure another award i.e. best action/adventure game as well indicating a promising year ahead for these developers.  

From software also had their other two games i.e Bloodborne and dark soul 3 for the nominees but this couldn’t win the award due to the equal popularity of their competitors.

Bloodborne was up against Witcher 3: the wild hunt and we all know bloodborne is no match for Witcher 3.
