The Game Awards 2021: It Takes Two wins Game of the Year (GOTY) | Full list of winners

Full list of winners

That was all! The Game Awards 2021 comes to an end. It was a time to showcase new titles and to celebrate some of the best from 2021. An edition where the protagonist was, mostly, the announcements of upcoming games. A longer ceremony where the award segment (supposedly the main protagonists) felt a bit rushed sometimes. Although enjoyable and with plenty of exciting moments, sometimes it felt more like an E3 rather than an award event.

It Takes Two became the big winner of the night achieving 3 awards including the Game of the Year 2021 (GOTY), Best Family Game and Best Multiplayer Game.
