Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, DICE’s Star Wars Battlefront, Guerrilla Games’ Horizon: Zero Dawn, and the Oculus Touch controllers were also nominated for the award.

Fallout 4 took home a total of three awards, also garnering Best PC Game, Best Role-Playing Game, and, as mentioned earlier, Best of Show. Uncharted 4 also won three awards: Best Console Game, Best Action/Adventure Game, and the Special Commendation for Graphics.

Looking at nominations by publisher, Sony performed best with five, followed by Electronic Arts with four, and Bethesda with three.

One thing to note is that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, XCOM 2, and Ghost Recon: Wildlands were not made playable to judges so they were not in the running.
