By FileTrekker 5 years ago, last updated 5 years ago

Playerunknown's Battlegrounds has managed to win out in the Steam Awards to be crowned the 2018 Game of the Year, against rivals such as Hitman 2, Monster Hunter: World and Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

It's good news for PUBG, who lost out in Golden Joystick awards, when rival Battle Royale Fortnite took the top title, to the surprise of many. In his acceptance video, Playerunknown spoke of how the award came as a surprise and how they continue to strive to make the most realistic Battle Royale game there is.

Another GameFront favourite, Rocket League, came in with the "Most Fun with a Machine" award, while CD Projekt Red scooped up two awards with both the "Best Developer" award, and the "Best Environment" award for The Witcher III.

Elsewhere, Rockstar picked up the Labor of Love award for Grand Theft Auto V, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim won VR Game of the Year. Yep, it's still winning awards, even in 2019.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six (All Rights Reserved) Siege won the Better with Friends category, something I have to agree with wholeheartedly, and finally Assassin's Creed Odyssey also didn't home empty handed, picking up the "Best Alternate History" award.
