The Last of Us Part 2 was this year’s most-nominated game, claiming nominations in 13 categories, but it wasn’t last night’s big winner. That honour instead went to Hades, which ended up with five wins. Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic game took home three wins, including the user-voted EE Game of the Year award.
