Xbox Exclusive Picks Up New York Game Award, Baldur's Gate 3 Wins GOTY

An Xbox first-party release has taken home another game award this week - and it's hardly surprising when you check which category it ended up winning. Tango Gameworks' Hi-Fi RUSH is the game in question, and it won the 'Best Music in a Game' award at the annual New York Game Awards ceremony yesterday.

For those unaware, Hi-Fi RUSH is all about the music - combining rhythm game mechanics with third-person combat in a refreshingly colourful adventure. It absolutely blew us away last January, and we're happy to see it continue to scoop up awards to this day!

As for the rest of the categories - it's perhaps no surprise to see Baldur's Gate 3 take the overall Game of the Year Award, with Alan Wake 2 also scoring a win. We'll drop the full New York Game Awards winners list down below:
