The Last Of Us Wins Big At GDC Awards
[ Gaming]

Out of all the awards shows for video games, the Game Developers Choice Awards carry the most weight. To win one is an immense honor, but it’s also a sign that the game is one of the best of the year. It’s no surprise then that The Last of Us came away with the most awards during the 14th annual GDC Awards.

Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us took home Game of the Year at the GDC Awards tonight alongside wins in Best Design and Best Narrative. The game faced some stiff competition from AAA releases and indies alike as Grand Theft Auto V and Gone Home both vied for the Game of the Year award. Neither of those games went home empty handed, however, as Grand Theft Auto V won Best Technology and Fullbright Company won Best Debut for Gone Home.

The big surprise of this year’s show, however, was Papers, Please. The dystopian document thriller from Lucas Pope won the Innovation Award and Best Downloadable Game. Earlier in the night, Papers, Please won the Seamus McNally Grand Prize award at the Independent Game Festival Awards show.
