Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part II took home many of the trophies from The Game Awards last night. It also won the biggest award of all: Game of the Year. The game was up against strong Game of the Year nominees, like Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons and id Software’s Doom Eternal.  

The awards ceremony was aired live from three separate, live audience-less locations: Los Angeles, London, and Tokyo. Very few events can get this kind of low-latency, multi-location experience right, but The Game Awards pulled it off without a hitch. 

The show had musical guests, including Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam and the London Philharmonic Orchestra. The likes of Brie Larson, Gal Gadot, JackSepticEye, John David Washington, and Keanu Reeves also made appearances to announce awards. Christopher Nolan announced the final award.
