[GSC 2021] The List Of Award Winners: Bandai Namco Sweeps

The Japanese publisher, Bandai Namco pulled in several awards at this year’s Gamescom. No wonder: Elden Ring is a promising title by FromSoftware.


Here’s the list of winners (with the publisher in the brackets):


  •     Best Action-Adventure Game: Elden Ring (Bandai Namco)
  •     Best Action Game: Far Cry 6 (Ubisoft)
  •     Best Family Game: Super Dungeon Maker (Rokaplay)
  •     Best Indie Game: Lost In Random (Zoink Games/Thunderful, Electronic Arts)
  •     Best RPG: Elden Ring (Bandai Namco)
  •     Best Simulation: Park Beyond (Bandai Namco)
  •     Best Sports Game: Riders Republic (Ubisoft)
  •     Best Strategy Game: Age of Empires IV (Microsoft)
  •     Best Multiplayer Game: Halo Infinite (Microsoft)
  •     Best Ongoing Game: Apex Legends (Electronic Arts)
  •     Most Original Game: Dice Legacy (Ravenscourt)
  •     Best Xbox Game: Halo Infinite (Microsoft)
  •     Best Switch Game: Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope (Ubisoft)
  •     Best PlayStation Game: Elden Ring (Bandai Namco)
  •     Best PC Game: Syberia: The World Before (Microids)
  •     Best Announcement: Saints Row (Koch Media/Deep Silver, Embracer Group)
  •     Best Trailer: Saints Row (Koch Media/Deep Silver, Embracer Group)
  •     Best of Gamescom: Elden Ring (Bandai Namco)
  •     Best Line-up: Bandai Namco


Hidetaka Miyazaki’s game (with its lore written by George R.R. Martin) won no less than four awards, and Bandai Namco also won the best (theme park) simulation game and the best line-up awards. However, Elden Ring winning the PlayStation award is weird since it’s a multiplatform title: it will also be on Xbox Series and Xbox One. However, on PlayStation, we won’t see Halo Infinite (Xbox winner) and Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope (Nintendo Switch winner).

Microsoft and Ubisoft won three awards each: the Redmond-based company brought them home with Halo Infinite and Age of Empires IV, while the French publisher won via three separate titles. We have no idea what Gamescom’s website meant by “a jury of gaming experts”…
