Created by media entrepreneur and Cranky Kong enthusiast Geoff Keighley, what started as a baffling and highly entertaining mess of a show known as VGX featuring Joel McHale has evolved into a commendable work of passion and care that truly aims to celebrate the video game industry. With multiple world premiers, new trailers and performances, this should be a fun night with only a slight chance of crushing your hopes and dreams.

Can't wait! Geoff has created something amazing.

Any predictions on how many viewers we'll have this year? I think last year was around 11 million. Wouldn't be surprised if we have 15+ million this year, which is insane.

Hollywood Reporter said:
This year's show also features a roster of A-list Hollywood talent as presenters, including Avengers directors Joe and Anthony Russo; Stranger Things showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer; actors Jonah Hill, Joel McHale, Christoph Waltz, Aisha Tyler, Alita: Battle Angel star Rosa Salazar — who will debut new footage from the upcoming Fox film — and even the Muppets.

With Nintendo tweeting to tune into the show, and also because they are nominated for basically nothing, I'm hoping for a big showcase from them with regards to extracurricular activities, especially with Smash launching today/tomorrow. Prime 4 trailer? Bayo 3 trailer? First Smash DLC fighter? A live performance of "Lifelight"? Would love one, adore two, and absolutely cream my pants if we got all of them.

God of War for GOTY.
I hope so.

The world AI and underlying systems in RDR2 were superbly impressive, but the pacing and structure of the narrative took a poor turn about 3/4 through the game and I feel the story really suffered until end/epilogue.

GoW however, punched my soul. So powerful and concise, with incredible pacing. And on a technical level the HDR 4K I felt was better implemented and more graphically impressive from a texture, animation (with all the inverse kinematics with fighting system, lip sync and eyes (facial animation) etc. It just felt tighter with a huge emphasis on cinematic lighting that spilled out perfectly in every scene. GoW is 1st for me, RDR2 2nd, and prob Spider-Man my 3rd but I need to play more Monster Hunter and a few other titles to know for sure (i loved octopath and still need to finish that even).

I'm actually looking forward to Pepe the King Prawn presenting lol that's hilarious

Also, the VR nominations this year are really legit games. That space is starting to mature ... I want Astrobot to win, but if still be happy with Tetris, Moss, or Beat Saber. Haven't played firewall, so I can't speak to that
