The Game Awards 2019 Results: Sekiro Wins Game of the Year, Resident Evil 2 Skipped Over
Other notable winners from the show include Death Stranding, Devil May Cry 5, and Luigi’s Mansion 3.

Last night’s 2019 installment of The Game Awards has come and gone, bringing with it plenty of big announcements and a few accolades along the way. As we reported back in November, there was a good mix of notable horror-related nominations and we now have the complete winners list for you.
Before going through the full results, it’s worth mentioning that January’s remake of Resident Evil 2 was majorly snubbed, taking home no awards after being nominated for four. At least survival horror fans can rest easy knowing the title was the Golden Joystick’s Ultimate Game of the Year on top of receiving a win for Best Audio design. As it turns out, The Game Awards weren’t quite as kind to the title.
However, FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice won big and took home 2019’s Game of the Year honors on top of a win for Best Action/Adventure Game. Also among the other award recipients are Death Stranding, Luigi’s Mansion 3, and Devil May Cry 5. See below for the full list with the winning titles highlighted in bold and underlined for emphasis.[blockquote-0]
So, there you have it. Do you agree with the above winners? If not, what are some of your alternate picks? My feeling is that Resident Evil 2 should have taken home something, but you can share your thoughts on the results with us in the comments below or on social media.
