List of nominees for The Game Awards

After the embarrassment and stupor caused by last year's VGX, Geoff keighley decided to separate his path from Viacom and Spike TV and work on a ceremony that really had video games at its core. Thus was born The Game Awards, an initiative that the journalist with more than 20 years of experience (and the occasional controversy along the way) will finance out of his pocket and with which he hopes to recover the investment thanks to the tickets sold to attend the event next December 5 In Las Vegas. In addition, it has the backing and support of the vast majority of greats in the industry.

That is why, counting on so many personalities and companies from the world, one does hope to find a show that, despite not leaving aside that television cut, has video games as its watchword. Remember that, historically, VGAs have been the place chosen to announce important titles such as Dark Souls II, Portal 2, Skyrim or Batman: Arkham City, which are not mucus of turkey. So expect a good portion of ads and as many videos and game demos yet to be released. Obviously, the winning games will also be an important part and, after the jump, you have all the nominees of each of the available categories. Place your bets!
