Since The Game Awards show is about giving out awards (and definitely not a framing device for lots of marketing), it would make sense to compile a list of PC-relevant winners on the night. So that’s exactly what I’ve done here.
Every PC game, or PC-related developer that won an award in any category can be found below. Lots of accolades for CD Projekt Red and The Witcher 3 this evening.
Best Fighting Game: Mortal Kombat X (not exactly a great version on PC, but hey).
Best eSport Team: OpTic Gaming (they mostly seem to play Call of Duty, albeit possibly not the PC releases).
Best eSport Player: Kenny “KennyS” Schrub (CS:GO).
Best eSport Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
Most Anticipated Game: No Man’s Sky.
Best Narrative: Her Story.
