The Game Awards took place in Los Angeles last night, bringing with them a raft of new reveals and updates, alongside the small matter of actually dishing out some gongs to a bunch of brilliant video games.

It also says a lot about the quality of a game like Celeste to see it going toe-to-toe with AAA games with multi-million dollar budgets for Game of the Year.
