The recent Game Awards 2023 had celebrities, very little devs, Christopher Judge and a CoD joke—oh, and some winners and big reveals.

Last Friday, The Game Awards 2023 ceremony was hosted at the Peacock Theatre in Los Angeles and live-streamed to viewers all over the world. 2023 has been a massive year for games and saw majorly successful titles competing for the same awards. Not only that, but exciting news about upcoming games and trailers had fans hyped up all night.

There were 31 categories and the winners were decided by fans and a voting jury of experts. For the majority of the winners, fans’ choice weighed 10% while the experts’ choice weighed 90%. A separate Players’ Voice award was 100% voted for by the public. After four weeks of voting, fans finally got to see if their most beloved games would be recognised.

Game of the Year

The biggest award of the night had very strong contenders from this year’s releases. All the nominees were fan-favourites and excelled in every aspect. Alan Wake 2, Baldur’s Gate 3, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Resident Evil 4, Super Mario Bros. Wonder, and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom are all great games in their own right, but only one could win Game of the Year, and that was Baldur’s Gate 3.

Baldur’s Gate 3, developed by Larian Studios, was the biggest winner of the night, winning six out of nine nominations for The Game Awards. In addition to the most prestigioous Game of the Year, they also won Best Role Playing Game, Best Multiplayer, and Players’ Voice. The game had been in development for six years and offered an interactive player experience like no other. With all the love and critical acclaim it has gotten since release, it’s safe to say that Baldur’s Gate 3 deserves the awards they won. Watch the moment when CEO and Founder of Larian Studios, Swen Vincke, accepted the Game of the Year award (and in full suit of armour no less).

Reveals, trailers, and more

This year’s Game Awards had some exciting news on long-awaited games, some of which were being revealed for the very first time. Monster Hunter fans can look forward to slaying and carving more monsters in Monster Hunter: Wilds, which is coming in 2025. Look forward to playing as a certain vampire hunter, because Marvel’s Blade is in development at Arkane Lyon, the same studio behind Dishonored and Deathloop. Hello Games, developer of No Man’s Sky, also revealed Light No Fire, set in a world “the size of Earth”.

Hideo Kajima gave a first look into his upcoming Xbox game, now titled OD, with Jordan Peele being revealed as a collaborator and the likes of Sophia Lillis, Hunter Schafer, and Udo Kier set to feature in the game. Released games got some love too — God of War Ragnarok will be getting a free DLC available on December 12 while Final Fantasy XVI just dropped Echoes of the Fallen with a second DLC, The Rising Tide, coming in spring 2024.

Though 2023 has been a great year for games, the next few years are looking to be just as promising. Head below for the full list of winners from the award show.
