The Outer Worlds Receives Game of the Year at The New York Video Game Awards 2020

While it’s already 2020, the award season hasn’t quite finish, with more ceremonies still to commemorate the standout games of last year. The New York Video Game Awards took place this week, with The Outer Worlds taking the Big Apple Game of the Year award. Other notable wins went to Disco Elysium for Off Broadway Award for Best Indie Game and Resident Evil 2 gaining the Freedom Tower Award for Best Remake. This is quite different of how The Game Awards ended up, with Sekiro Shadows Die Twice taking Game of The Year instead. But Disco Elysium also scooped up best Independent Game and RPG there too.
