The Game Awards 2019 – All the Winners and Nominees

What a year it has been in gaming. We have seen Google enter the market to…interesting reception. Indie games have gone above and beyond what is expected of them. And we’ve even seen EA deliver a good Star Wars game. Who would have thought they’d see that happen in this day and age?

However, whilst 2019 has seen a lot of games come out, we need to acknowledge the absolute best of the best. Hence, the Games Award.

The Game Awards recognises and upholds the creative technical excellence demonstrated in the global video game industry. The academy themselves help bring together a diverse group of developers, players, and more besides to celebrate and advance gaming’s position. Gaming, as we know, is the most immersive, challenging, and inspiring form of entertainment available. And, something that is incredibly important, especially this year, the Game Awards helps recognise those who improve the wellbeing of the gaming community. (Taken from The Game Awards 2019).

So, without further ado, here are all the categories, nominees, and, most importantly, winners from this year’s event.
