What did you think of The Game Awards 2017?

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was at The Game Awards 2017 in a big way, as not only did it pick up the Game of the Year Award, but DLC Pack 2 - The Champions' Ballad was also released right then and there. In The Champions' Ballad downloadable content pack players will tackle a never-before-seen dungeon, defeat enemies using the One-Hit Obliterator, and explore new shrines.

"The Champions' Ballad" is the second major DLC that the game received.


Breath of the Wild also won Best Game Direction and Best Action/Adventure Game.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice was an August release on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC, praised for the adventure's intense delivery, its precise and effective audio design, and its nuanced treatment of a serious psychiatric disorder afflicting the game's main character. Best Action-Adventure Game, Best Direction, Game of the Year; these are elite categories. As an added bonus, Nintendo has indicated that it will release Amiibo for each of the champions.

But that's not the only Nintendo news from the annual awards show. "On behalf of all the staff who worked on the game let me once again say thank you so much".

A full list of winners and nominees can be found at thegameawards.com/awards, save for the victor in Best Multiplayer Game which was not announced during the TGA ceremony nor via its Twitter account. Best mobile game "Monument Valley 2".
