No Star Wars in Best Narrative is ridiculous. I guess the game didn't get into press hands early enough for voting. A shame because Debra Wilson's performance as Cere is straight up the best performance of the year

Save yourself some time TC and start putting Death Stranding in every category now.

Remember when Jeff Gerstmann was nominated? If he had gotten up on stage it would have saved the show, and retroactively prevented 9/11.

Sayonara Wild Hearts got a nomination!!! I'm so glad. One of my absolute favourites this year.

I'm pleasantly shocked that FFXIV is nominated for best RPG. Shadowbringers is the best Final Fantasy release in 20+ years and the game as a whole is one of the best in the entire series.

Too bad it'll lose to Monster Hunter World, but it's nice that it's finally got some mainstream recognition.

Good to see Disco Elysium and Control getting recognition

Outer Wilds got robbed (wonder if someone mistook it for Outer Worlds)

edit: Just saw the GOTY category, Disco Elysium also got robbed

Folks about to get shocked that a game with a plethora of 10s is getting nominated for awards.

Best Performance should easily go to Mads.

Dude looked like he walked out of a damn movie with that performance.

Man, I feel like Shadowbringers should have been nominated for Game of the Year but I get it if they don't want to let expansions into the list.

Edit: I do feel like: "Best DLC" should be an award though.
