The Game Awards was, once again, a celebration of gaming's past and an advertisement for gaming's future.

The celebration of The Game Awards 2020

3655 the game awards2

The 2020 ceremony aired live from Los Angeles, London and Tokyo from three in-studio, audience-less locations. Speaking to Variety in September, host Geoff Keighley said they “would never normally be able to have three cities live” — which inspired the big-scale idea.

“This is a unique year of circumstances, so let’s try that. I think it sends a really great message, and I think it’s what I’d like to do more of,” he said.

The show featured musical performances from Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and appearances from special guests including Brie Larson, Gal Gadot, JackSepticEye, John David Washington, Josef Fares, Keanu Reeves, Nolan North, Reggie Fils-Aime, Stephen A. Smith, Tom Holland, Troy Baker and Christopher Nolan, who announced the final award.

The Game Awards are over for another year. Yes, Gaming's grandest stage of all, the Super Bowl of video game awards shows, the showcase of the digital immortals -- whatever you want to call it -- has come and gone. There was not a single attendee this year, with the 30 Angels handed out online across a three-hour event broadcasting from Los Angeles, London and Tokyo. The awards were great! But we know the real reason to tune in is for all the "World Premieres," showcasing new video games and future releases for the first time.

The Game Awards 2020 Winners

“The Last of Us Part II” won the biggest prize of the night at the 2020 Game Awards.
