The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Wins Game Of The Year At GDC 2016
Yet another accolade for one of the best video games of the generation.
The esteemed open-world action/RPG from CD Projekt Red, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, has won Game of the Year at the 2016 Game Developers Conference.
The Witcher 3 and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain led the way with four nominations each heading into the night; the other GotY contenders were Bloodborne, Fallout 4 and Rocket League. For the full list of nominees and winners (now bolded in each category list), visit GameSpot. CD Projekt Red's immersive RPG also won the award for Best Technology, while Her Story won the Innovation and Best Narrative Awards, Rocket League took home Best Design, Ori and the Blind Forest nabbed Best Visual Art, and Crypt of the NecroDancer won Best Audio.
If you're wondering, The Witcher 3 also won our overall 2015 Game of the Year (along with a few other nods), and the title has piled up quite the mound of hardware in recent months. Don't forget that the game's second huge expansion, Blood and Wine, is due out this year, and the first - Hearts of Stone - was absolutely fantastic.
