The Game Awards Winners in 2017
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Everyone loves the end of the year when we get to look back fondly on everything the video game industry has achieved. 2017 was an especially good year, and the winners of The Game Awards clearly prove that. There were 29 different categories at play this year, including the ever coveted Game of the Year award. The game that won that honor and toppled the charts (with three wins) was of course The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Equally impressive were Cuphead and Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifce, both of which took home three different awards. The Industry Icon Award was given to Carol Shaw this year, one of the first women in the video game industry. She worked on all sorts of games for the Atari 2600 console. The best known of all of these is River Raid from 1982.

Below you can peruse our list of what and who won each of The Game Awards' prizes. There is one category in particular though that has not been decided yet. The jury is literally still out on who will win Best Multiplayer game of 2017. Hopefully this will be revealed soon. You can keep an eye on The Game Awards website for that if you'd like.
