The Game Developers Choice Awards (or GDC to its friends) took place last night in San Francisco as part of the 2016 Game Developers Conference, and we’ve got a full list of the winners for you to enjoy (and potentially disagree with).

It was a big night for CD Projekt Red’s Witcher 3 – the open world fantasy epic led the pack in terms of nominations, and ended up taking home the all important Game of the Year and Best Technology.

Indie darling Her Story also had a swell time, scooping up three awards including innovation and best mobile game. The rundown of all the winners and nominees is below.
