The first virtual Game Awards took place last night with the event live streamed from three in-studios in Los Angeles, London and Tokyo. This is the first time the Game Awards went virtual like many other events due to the pandemic. This also made it possible for the Game Awards 2020 to air live from three different places.

The Last of Us Part II won the coveted ‘Game of the Year’ award. The Last of Us Part II bagged many more awards for the best direction, narrative, audio design, innovation in accessibility, and action/adventure. Laura Bailey also won the best performance award for Abby in The Last of Us Part II. It was a glorious night for Naughty Dog’s hit sequel at The Game Awards 2020.

InnerSloth’s Among Us won two awards for the best mobile game, and the best multiplayer game. InnerSloth also revealed a new map called ‘The Airship’ for Among Us. The new Among Us map is scheduled for an early 2021 release. More 2020 favourites like Animal Crossings: New Horizon won the best family game award, and Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout won the award for the best community support.
