Accepting this award was Josef Fares, Game Director at Hazelight Studios. Making a short statement with some casual swearing, he told viewers:
I was up on that stage, 2017 saying, ‘f**k the Oscars’ and now, actually in a way the Oscars got f***ed because The Game Awards is getting way better.
Elsewhere this evening, The Game Awards 2021 also brought us surprise reveals for Star Wars: Eclipse, Star Trek Resurgence, Wonder Woman, a Final Fantasy 7 Remake PC port, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax's re-release, and more.
