Half-Life: Alyx Wins VR Game Of The Year At 2020 VR Awards

The 2020 VR Awards moved online last week as the annual ceremony celebrated the best in the VR industry. Unsurprisingly, Valve’s Half-Life: Alyx took home one of the big prizes.

The PC VR game, arguably the biggest title yet to release for VR headsets, was awarded VR Game of the Year at the show. Alyx beat out the likes of Sanzaru Games’ Asgard’s Wrath and Stress Level Zero’s Boneworks in a tightly contested year. It was one of two victories for Valve – the company also took home VR Hardware of the Year for the Index headset, surpassing the Oculus Rift S and Varjo’s VR – 2.

But the VR Awards look beyond gaming, and also award prizes for the best films, experiences and marketing among others. Disney’s Myth: A Frozen Tale, which released on Quest a few months back, took home the film prize while sensational live VR theater hub, The Under Presents, was awarded experience. HTC Founder Cher Wang, meanwhile, was awarded VR’s Lifetime Achievement recgonition.
