The 2020 Game Awards – All The Winners And Nominees

The 2020 Game Awards took place yesterday and one thing is for certain – it wasn’t just the winners that made waves. The entirely-online event was chock-full of trailers to tantalise viewers, new game announcements mingled with updates such as the big reveal of Master Chief joining the Fortnite roster and, of course, there was the appearance of the beloved Keanu Reeves. And other celebrity faces, I guess.

The awards themselves saw League of Legends, Among Us and Fall Guys clinch a few of the multiplayer-related awards whilst The Last of Us Part II dominated just about every other category.
