The Game Awards 2019 has wrapped up, and the winner of Game of the Year is Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, FromSoftware’s incredibly difficult yet rewarding action-adventure game. Aside from winning the most coveted award of the night, Sekiro also took home the Best Action/Adventure game at the awards show.
In total, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice took home two awards during the ceremony. Other games that won multiple awards include Fire Emblem: Three Houses with two wins (Best Strategy and Player’s Voice), Death Stranding with three (Best Game Direction, Score/Music, and Performance by Mads Mikkelsen), and Disco Elysium which is the big winner of the night with four awards (Best Indie game, RPG, Narrative, and Fresh Indie Game).
Haven’t played Sekiro yet? Here’s a warning: get ready to die, a lot! I myself had lots of trouble with the game, so much so that I have all but given up hope of finishing it. But if you’re actually a decent player (unlike me), there’s lot to love about Sekiro, making it a deserving GOTY winner.
