Game-Awards-2020

There’s no shortage of game awards come the end of the year, such as the prestigious Critical Hit Awards that will be broadcast from my iconic kitchen at the end of the year. Will Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Final Fantasy 8 take home all the words for the tenth year on the trot? All signs say yes. While it’s not as nice as our event, Geoff Keighley’s little Game Awards show hasn’t done too badly over the last couple of years.

It has become an annual treat, a hub for enthusiastic game developers telling the Oscars to get stuffed, and also home to a few big reveals! Last year saw the Xbox Series X unveiled in all of its monolithic glory on the Game Awards stage, so who knows what this year will bring? In terms of actual game awards, this year may be the toughest yet for the industry due to it ending the current console generation on a high note usually reserved for eunuchs in a choir.

Some games are lined up for multiple awards, such as the superb Hades, the spectacular Ghost of Tsushima, and my favourite golf game, The Last of Us Part II. This year’s breakout hits also include Fall Guys and Among Us, and there’s nothing sus about that. Here’s the full list of nominees for the show, which will be livestreamed on December 10:
