Game Developer Conference 2018 is in full swing, and the annual GDC Choice Award winners have just been announced. Unlike many other awards shows, GDC's honors are voted on by industry members. Still, if you've been paying attention to other recent video game awards shows, it should come as no surprise to you that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was once again a big winner.

As expected, Nintendo's latest Zelda masterpiece won the Game of the Year Award, and it also took home accolades for Best Audio and Best Design. Cuphead and Gorogoa were also well-received, taking home two awards each. Additionally Tim Schafter was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
