The fourth annual Game Awards just wrapped up its presentation for recognition given to a slew of A-list and indie games. Whether the selections are controversial or not, they represent some of the year’s top titles.

Nintendo‘s Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild scooped up an impressive array of awards: the coveted Game of the Year, Best Action/Adventure Game and Best Game Direction prizes. The long-awaited indie title Cuphead also earned a trio of awards for Best Art Direction, Best Independent Game and Best Debut Indie Game. Other notable prizewinners included Overwatch, which snatched Best E-Sports Game and Best Ongoing Game, and Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, which garnered three awards.

Curiously the awards show neglected to award its title of Best Multiplayer Game, but keep an eye on the program’s Twitter for any updates. Meanwhile, Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro were present at the event to tease their forthcoming Death Stranding. Check out all of The Game Awards 2017 winners below:
