Every year, Geoff Keighley hosts a yearly awards show. Geoff founded The Game Awards in 2014, and has been a yearly celebration where gamers, game companies, and the media meet. Geoff recently announced the nominees for this year’s The Game Awards. You can watch the video below to see the full list of nominees. The community votes for each category is their favorite for the year, and the judges tallies the votes, then finalizes the winners on-stage at the awards ceremony.
You can vote for your favorite games in the categories listed here, learn about the awards here. The Game Awards will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, but will be streamed on most popular streaming services on Thursday, December 12, starting at 8:30 PM ET / 5:30 PM PT in 4K.
Another thing to note, is that The Game Awards is also a place where games are revealed. It’s how Death Stranding debuted, it’s how Mortal Kombat 11 was revealed. Ed Boon swooped in, was going to make a awards announcement, and then, there it was, the Mortal Kombat 11 Reveal. Everyone was surprised, it was awesome.
