Hosted by Geoff Keighley, The Game Awards 2021 stunned the internet with the biggest reveals and honouring the most well-received titles this year. Arkane Studios’ Deathloop, despite earning nine spots on the nomination list, barely scratched the surface with 2 victories.

On the other hand, Hazelight studio’s co-op game, It Takes Two, which bagged five spots on the list, won 3 awards, including the prestigious Game of the Year trophy. This comes as a big relief for director Josef Fares, who recently received a trademark claim from GTA parent company, Take-Two over similar-sounding names. Following the disastrous launch of the Marvel’s Avengers game, even Square Enix earned a redemption arc when Guardians of the Galaxy lifted the trophy for best narrative.

In the Player’s Choice category, Halo Infinite came victorious, despite only having released 2 nights ago. Keanu Reeves made an appearance this year as well, alongside co-star Carrie-Ann Moss to promote their film and the new Unreal Engine 5 tech demo – The Matrix Awakens. Players can download the game for free on their PS5 or Xbox Series X|S consoles and play a few missions based on iconic moments from the franchise.

With all that out of the way, here’s a complete list of winners from The Game Awards 2021 (winners in bold):
