Despite this year feeling like one of the longest slogs of all time, the fact that The Game Awards 2020 are now right around the corner still doesn’t feel quite right! Still, now that the nominees for the event have been revealed, we’re excited to see exactly who will be walking away with the gold come December 10th.


A whopping 95 leading media and influencer outlets from across the world (we'll be there one day, count on it) came together to form this year's voting jury, all selecting their favourite games and personalities from the gaming world to compete for this year's collection of gongs.
