It beat competition from Mario Odyssey, Persona 5, Horizon: Zero Dawn and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to be crowned game of the year.

It also won best game direction and best action/ adventure game.

The Game Awards is one of the biggest ceremonies in the industry and is popular because it also features unseen trailers for upcoming games.

One of the first female game designers, Carol Shaw, was honoured with the Industry Icon award.

She designed classic titles like 3D Tic-Tac-Toe for the Atari 2600 back in the 1970s.
