Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Snags The Steam Awards 2019’s Game Of The Year

You might remember earlier in the year game journos whining about Activision and FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice being too hard, no? Well, according to both The Game Awards 2019 and Steam Awards 2019, the action-adventure title seems to be a favorite despite crying journos.

The same company that brought you “Mayor Carol” for Steam’s Winter sale via the “non-binary” trans artist has the 2019 Steam award winners up for your viewing pleasure. Upon paying Gaben’s digital store a visit, you can see what games took home the crown.

Seeing that you are still here, we can tell that those ignoramus game journos were wrong on “hard games” and “accessibility” thanks to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, which beat out Resident Evil 2, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Destiny 2, and Devil May Cry 5.

Grand Theft Auto V takes the number one spot contrary to it being a labor of love — which it’s nothing more than a multiplayer cash grab for kids wanting to flex to other kids how they stole their mom’s credit card. Following after the notorious game is Warframe, Rainbow Six: Siege, Counter-Strike: Global Offense, and Dota 2.

I’m not sure why Gears 5 is even on this list, but aside from that woke trash, we see A Plague Tale: Innocence take the top spot, with the socialist thanking devs over Disco Elysium snagging second, and Far Cry: New Dawn and the glitchy Greedfall coming in third and fifth place.

The fighting game that identifies as Mortal Kombat 11 should take the spot of “Games that Suck to Play,” but in this case, it won “Best Game You Suck At.” Mordhau, Code Vein, Hunt: Showdown, and Remnant From The Ashes follow after.
