The Game Awards winners for 2017 crowned

Last night saw the winners crowned from The Games Awards in a glitzy ceremony in LA.

The Legend of Zelda was one of the biggest winners, taking Best Game Direction, Game of the Year and Best Action/Adventure, but Cuphead and Hellblade picked up three awards apiece.

The real winners were nintendo, with five awards for their games, six if you count Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, which does have Mario’s grinning face on the cover, despite its development at Ubisoft.

Here’s a 9 minute video all about how great The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is. I’m not even being sarcastic, I just really like it.

Here are all of the awards, if you’re that way inclined.
