The Game Awards are officially underway, and we're already starting to see a few trophies get passed out, including some surprises right off the bat!
All the awards have been given out; and as you can see, Red Dead Redemption 2 took a number of them, but there was also a nod or two to the indies, including Celeste and The Messenger. And, of course, Tyler "Ninja" Blevins scored big on the social front, and a few other esports awards were given as well.
You can catch the full list of winners below and see which of your favorites took home trophies. We're just glad to see favorites like Dead Cells, Forza Horizon 4 and others got their due with no trouble!
And kudos to God of War, winning the big awards of the night -- best direction and Game of the Year!
The Game Awards aired live this evening, and you can catch most of our coverage from the show, including the surprises, on WWG!
