Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part II, created and directed by Neil Druckmann, swept The Game Awards on Thursday. A follow up to the original 2013 video game, The Last of Us Part II took home a total of seven awards at Geoff Keighley’s annual awards show.

Upon receiving the Game of the Year prize from Christopher Nolan, Druckmann expressed gratitude for his team and their supporters.

“More than anything and I know I speak for the whole team, we’d like to thank our friends and family to who stuck by us while we were making this game. You continue to inspire us in making better games but also in how we make these games,” The Last of Us creator said.

While The Last Of Us Part II took home the best performance, best direction and Game of the Year prizes, other big winners of the evening were Ghost of Tsushima, Hades, Animal Crossing and Among Us. While the 2020 Game Awards highlighted the accomplishments across the video game scene, a number of Hollywood names including Brie Larson, Christopher Nolan, John David Washington, Tom Holland, Keanu Reeves and Gal Gadot stopped by to present the evening’s various awards.

Among the highlights of the virtual ceremony, which live-streamed across more than 45 platforms globally including YouTube and Twitch, were the London Philharmonic’s game theme song medley of Game of The Year contenders, Vin Diesel’s Ark II reveal and Eddie Vedder’s “Future Days” performance.
