Game Awards: Game of the Year nominations

0

Hades and The Last of Us Part II lead the number of nominations in the various categories. Half-Life: Alyx is out of contention.

Next December 10 will be held The Game Awards gala, one of the most notorious events on the calendar for video game lovers. The annual event brings together the entire industry in a show that combines announcements about future titles, musical performances and awards to the most prominent names of the year in different categories. The awards are delivered through the votes cast by dozens of specialized media around the world (including Meristation), as part of an international jury that also chooses the nominees for the different categories that we can find below.

Among the details that we find in this preliminary list is the clear leadership in terms of number of nominations of two games in particular: The Last of Us Part II and Hades, which confirm its status as two of the most important games of 2020. It also stands out an absence: Half-Life: Alyx as a nominee for best game of the year, after reaping some of the best scores this year in different analyzes (including a 10 in this house). In any case, these would be the candidates some of the most prominent categories:
