The Outer Worlds Wins GOTY at 9th Annual New York Videogame Awards

The New York Videogame Critics Circle celebrated the best in gaming at the 9th annual New York Videogame Awards at SVA Theatre in NYC last week and there were some big winners at the annual show. We will be honest, we here at XBA didn’t even know there was a NY Videogame Critics Circle until this news hit our inbox.

The organization bestowed its highest honor, the Big Apple Award for Best Game of the Year, to The Outer Worlds, a game developed by Obsidian Entertainment and is currently owned by Microsoft Studios. This is the last game from Obsidian Entertainment to be released across multiple platforms in such that their focus is now on making games for Microsoft, specifically the Xbox platform.

Other games also received some accolades at the awards show. Titles that won two awards each include Disco Elysium (receiving the Off Broadway Award for Best Indie Game and the Herman Melville Award for Best Writing), as well as Sayonara Wild Hearts (winning the A-Train Award for Best Mobile Game and the Tin Pan Alley Award for Best Music in a Game). Additionally, FPX (League of Legends) was awarded the Captain Award for Best Rookie Esports Team alongside a new award category for 2020, Joltin’ Joe Award for Best Esports Player of the Year won by Arslan Ash.
