All Esports Winners From The Game Awards 2023

The Game Awards has wrapped up for another year, and what a stunning event it was. There were some incredible new games revealed, in-development titles showcased, and of course, plenty of awards handed out. There was a portion of the show reserved for esports awards, and across a series of categories, some of the shining stars of our industry were recognised for their efforts, contributions, and victories from across the last year.

Next year, it’ll be the tenth anniversary of The Game Awards. It’s a monumental event that sees higher viewership than the Oscars, and this year, a concurrent viewer count of more than 1.5 million users tuned in. It’s one of the defining events in the annual calendar for gaming, and it’s positively a who’s who of the industry, boasting one of the most prolific crowds in the business.

So, without further ado, here are all the esports winners from The Game Awards 2023.

Congratulations to All

faker the game awards

We’ll break down the winners by category, offering up a little context as to why that event, game, person, or organization has won their respective award.

Content Creator of the Year: Ironmouse

In a historic win, Ironmouse, a VTuber with more than one million subscribers, scooped up the award for Content Creator of the Year. With special talents in singing and boasting a personality that is nothing if not hugely energetic, Ironmouse has worked hard to forge one of the most welcoming and engaged communities in streaming.

Best Esports Game: VALORANT

VALORANT has gone from strength to strength in recent years. From bringing in hundreds of thousands of viewers from a base of nothing (having only been released in 2020), VALORANT has proven it has the strength to top the charts. It’s a progressive game, which is shown by the Game Changers tournaments, and with constant developments and support from Riot Games, it has the ability to always feel fresh.

Best Esports Athlete: Faker

Faker has had a wonderful year, winning the League of Legends World Championship ten years after his first victory in the tournament. He has proven he’s a superstar competitor this year, and his profile has grown to immense levels, the likes of which we’ve never seen before. Especially in Korea, Faker is transcending ‘just being a gamer’ and becoming an instantly recognizable celebrity.

Best Esports Team: JD Gaming

JD Gaming has had a phenomenal year in the League of Legends space. From winning the LPL Spring circuit in April to claiming the top spot at MSI 2023 and then again at LPL Summer in August, the team has been nigh on unstoppable for the last twelve months. That can-do spirit didn’t come through at Worlds, but a fourth-place finish certainly was admirable enough for this incredible organization.

Best Esports Coach: Christine ‘Potter’ Chi

Christine Chi is a veteran competitor and coach who currently flies the flag of Evil Geniuses. During the VALORANT Champs event in August, Potter was instrumental to the team’s success, bringing about a resurgence that was inspired by a second-place finish at VCT 2023 Tokyo just two months before. Christine Chi recognised the talent in Demon1, who turned out to be one of the sharpest players of the year, and her resiliency shone through during the event.

Best Esports Event: 2023 League of Legends World Championship

Do we have to give context to this one? With a peak viewer count of more than 6 million users, the League of Legends World Championship broke records this year. It was a stunning event that showcased some of the most electrifying competitors in esports, and it saw Faker win his fourth world championship title. It was a true indication of the power of esports.

Did you agree with the awards handed out during the showcase, or would you have rather seen someone or something else win?
