Hades is the first video game to win a Hugo Award

The first ever Hugo Award for a video game has been won by the Supergiant Game, Hades.

It scooped best Video Game – a new category for the awards which were first presented in 1953 and salute the best works in science fiction and fantasy. The category is a one off for 2021, but there is apparently growing pressure on the awards management team to make it permanent,

Hades took first place ahead of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Spiritfarer, Final Fantasy VII Remake, The Last of Us: Part II, and Blaseball.

Supergiant Games’ writer and creative director Greg Kasavin said “We are incredibly honoured to be the first-ever recipient of a Hugo award in the category of best video game.” Tadacip http://www.wolfesimonmedicalassociates.com/tadacip/

“To have earned this distinction all this time later, especially alongside such an incredible slate of nominees, games of all shapes and sizes, from teams big and small, it really means the world. Video game storytelling has come a long way over the years, and games are really unique as a medium in that they’re interactive and you can really inhabit one of these fantastical worlds and see as it reacts to your every move.”

The last 18 months have been hugely successful for Supergiant and Hades. The game has already won IGN’s Game of the Year 2020 as well as best game at the GDC Choice Awards 2021, BAFTA Games Awards 2021, SXSW Gaming Awards 2021, Gayming Awards 2021 and D.I.C.E. Awards 2021.
