Baldur's Gate 3 Wins Game of the Year

A highly anticipated result from this year’s game awards, BG3 won sweeping awards through many categories while also taking the top prize at the end. Multiple Larian voice actors also won a few of the acting categories in addition, boosting the game to an esteemed status that should be recognized for years to come. With continued updates and support for the game still, it reaches new heights and could be a great opportunity for DLC expansions. What did you think of the Game Awards? I thought that Baldur's Gate 3 was certainly a deserved win, but I was also surprised that Spider-Man 2 didn’t win any awards this year.
