    The VGAs are today/tomorrow, and they always reveal big games and people always get mad about either the games themselves or the games that win awards.

    For the awards themselves, there are far too many for me to list, so I'll just write the various categories below and update them with the winner of each as the show goes on. If you want to see the nominees, and vote on them, you can do that here.

    Game of The Year: God of War
    Best Ongoing Game: Fortnite
    Best Game Direction: God of War
    Best Narrative: Red Dead Redemption 2
    Best Art Direction: Return of the Obra Dinn
    Best Score/Music: Red Dead Redemption 2
    Best Audio Design: Red Dead Redemption 2
    Best Performance: Roger Clark as Arthur Morgan in Red Dead Redemption 2
    Games for Impact: Celeste
    Best Independent Game: Celeste
    Best Mobile Game: Florence
    Best VR/AR Game: Astroworld
    Best Action Game: Dead Cells
    Best Action/Adventure Game: God of War
    Best Role Playing Game: Monster Hunter: World
    Best Fighting Game: Dragon Ball Fighterz
    Best Family Game: Overcooked 2
    Best Strategy Game: Into The Breach
    Best Sports/Racing Game: Forza Horizon 4
    Best Multiplayer Game: Fortnite
    Best Student Game: Combat 2018/Tankarok
    Best Debut Game: The Messenger

    Content Creator of The Year: That blue haired cunt

    Best ESports Game: Overwatch
    Best ESports Player: Sonicfox
    Best ESports Team: Cloud9
    Best Esports Coach: Sjokz
    Best ESports Event: League of Legends World Championship
    Best ESports Host: Reapered
    Best ESports Moment: C9's Comeback Win

    There's also a lot of games that are announced at The Game Awards yearly, which is the main reason I wanted to make this thread like I did last year.

    I'm not sure, so far, how many games have been confirmed to have information coming out during the game awards, but a teaser was released yesterday by Ubisoft for the next Far Cry game, so you can expect that.



    Here are the times the show will be held, too, for anyone that's interested in watching it:

    I'll post the trailers and announcements for games as they come later tonight.

    I was interested until I went through the categories, with exception of the eSport ones, and noticed that almost a third of them had the same four games. Pretty upsetting to see to be honest.

    2018 got dominated pretty hard by some big titles, decent titles while there was a lot of otherwise more 'meh' stuff, so it ain't a big surprise it turned out as it did.

    not surprising, sure but not any less disappointing in my opinion. I guess it's different if you saw it coming.

    a lot of the games nominated deserve the praise they're getting and then some - games like red dead redemption 2 and god of war have set new boundaries simply with how good they are. there were still some surprises, though, with celeste being up for game of the year

    Celeste is up there with the amazing games and while not a big title has every bit of right in being up there with them.
