The Game Awards 2023, considered the zenith of gaming excellence, found its place in the hands of Larian Studios’ magnum opus, Baldur’s Gate 3.

The game’s integration of narrative depth, player agency, and technical prowess set a new standard, leaving a mark on the industry.

While Baldur’s Gate 3 claimed the Game of the Year throne, Remedy Entertainment’s Alan Wake 2 emerged as a luminary in its own right.

Garnering three prestigious awards for Best Game Direction, Best Narrative, and Best Art Direction, the survival horror sequel showcased the studio’s commitment to delivering a visually stunning gaming experience.

Music, an integral part of the gaming experience, took center stage at The Game Awards 2023. Final Fantasy 16, with its evocative and enchanting score composed by the talented Masayoshi Soken, walked away with the Best Score/Music award.
