There’s a tension in the air at most award shows — but the annual Game Awards are a bit different. Sure, there’s still a lot of anticipation over who is going to win game of the year, but the real excitement takes place between the awards: trailers, announcements and DLC reveals.

It’s like a mini-E3 with a red carpet, and it’s quickly becoming one of the biggest nights of the year in game announcements. It’s where we first saw games like Bayonetta 3 and SoulCalibur VI, and got one of our best early looks at Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding.

Here’s everything major announced at the show this year — and the winners!

All of the major trailers…
