Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice takes home the top prize at The Game Awards 2019.

From Software’s nails-tough action game picked up the Game of the Year award at the annual event.

Death Stranding‘s Hideo Kojima took home the award for Best Direction, splitting the night’s top honours.

Sekiro released to strong sales in March and wowed critics with its demanding, but precise, combat. It currently enjoys a 91 rating on Metacritic, and, of the games released this year, is second only to Resident Evil 2.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
