Surprising very few, Baldur’s Gate 3 has claimed yet another Game of the Year Award, this time from the Game Developers Choice Awards, held tonight as part of the Game Developers Conference (GDC). In addition, Visai Games’ 2023 game Venba won the Seumas McNally Grand Prize for Best Independent Game at tonight’s Independent Games Festival (IGF) Awards.

Larian Studio’s RPG took home three other awards for the night, including best narrative and design. Tears of the Kingdom won an innovation award, while Alan Wake and Hi-Fi Rush also took home awards for visual art and audio, respectively.

Other winners of the night include the Nuovo Award at the IGF Awards, which honors games that change the way one thinks about games, which went to the horror game Anthology of the Killer.

Legendary composer Yoko Shimomura, whose work includes Kingdom Hearts, Legend of Mana and Parasite Eve, was honored with a lifetime achievement award.
