It's no Academy Awards, but the Game Awards has slowly become at least the closest thing the games industry has to it.
The end of the year is upon us, which means it's time for another iteration of Geoff Keighley's The Game Awards. The ceremony will also be streamed on a number of other services around the globe. God of War managed to snag the Game of the Year award this year, which is particularly impressive given the titles it went up against. Big titles vying for the "best" in several categories include Marvel's Spider-Man, Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin's Creed Origins, God of War, Monster Hunter: World, Detroit: Become Human, and Life is unusual 2.
Along with the ceremony, The Game Awards will also be littered with performances and reveals. More performers will be announced in the lead up to the show.More news: Anthony Martial steps up for Manchester United in big clash yet again
