The Game Awards is the most prestigious award in the gaming industry. Often described as the Oscar for Video Games, the event takes place at the end of the year and aims to crown the biggest and best gaming achievements over the course of a year.

While most award nominations are chosen based on critics’ choices, with the latest edition of the Players’ Voice Awards, the Game Awards opens up the opportunity for players to choose the most deserving title.
