Both Alan Wake 2 and Baldur’s Gate 3 launched to critical acclaim, with NME awarding Alan Wake 2 five stars last month.
“We loved our time with Alan Wake 2,” reads our review. “We know this because it occupied a lot of headspace even when we weren’t playing it, lodging itself somewhere deep inside as we replayed its most memorable sequences, looking for holes, scouting for clues.”
Our five-star review of Baldur’s Gate 3 was just as glowing, describing it as a “critical hit” for developer Larian Studios.
Elsewhere, Bethesda Softworks-developed Starfield was notably absent in The Game Awards’ announcement, and was only nominated for Best RPG. Speaking of Starfield, the game’s lead protagonist was almost voiced by stars of Deus Ex and The Owl House.
