The Complete Winners List from The Game Awards 2017

On the same day the nation gathered together to commemorate the 76th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, video game developers and industry leaders sat down to honor one another at the fourth annual The Game Awards. The show took place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Hosted by gaming journalist and television personality Geoff Keighley, the evening was an exciting mix of world premiers for upcoming games, special guests and, of course, awards for the best of the year. Twenty-three different jury-selected awards were doled out to development teams in honor of their hard work and dedication to the craft.


Destiny 2, Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Horizon Zero Dawn walked away with the most nominations. Public voting took place from Nov. 14 to Dec. 6, 2017 and only accounted for ten percent of the jury-voted awards (http://thegameawards.com/faq-rules/).
