The Game Awards 2023 winners in full

Baldur's Gate 3 sweeps The Game Awards 2023, here's all the winners and nominees in each category.

The Game Awards 2023 have crowned their winners from the impossibly strong field of contenders for this year. Among the games walking away with multiple Keighleys (the name we will unfortunately always use for the winged trophies devs are presented) are Baldur's Gate 3 and Alan Wake 2. Though Zelda was pipped for the top award this year, it still earns at least one accolade, so most people should be happy with the results. What did you think of The Game Awards 2023? Did your faves all make the cut?
