After an exhausting three-and-a-half-hour marathon the 2018 Game Awards have revealed the winner of the Game of the Year trophy is not what many would’ve predicted.

The most important award of the night was left until the very end, with even the announcer making it clear that it was really a two-horse race between Sony’s Santa Monica Studio and Rockstar Games.

The Game Award nominations are made by a team of 60 international publications, of which GameCentral is one, but are then are voted on by a mix of those same people and the general public.

You can see a list of all the nominees below, with the winners in bold, but God Of War also picked up Best Game Direction and Best Action/Adventure Game

Red Dead Redemption II didn’t walk away empty-handed though and won Best Narrative, Best Score/Music, Best Audio Design, and Best Performance for Roger Clark as Arthur Morgan.

There were a number of indie winners too, with Return Of The Obra Dinn winning Best Art Direction and Celeste winning Best Independent Game and the Games for Impact Award.

Fortnite also picked up two awards for Best Ongoing Game and Best Multiplayer Game.
