The Game Awards released their list of nominees for this year’s show, with God of War Ragnarök earning the most nominations with 10. Elden Ring and Horizon Forbidden West also appear in many categories with seven nominations each.

The event will take place on December 8. People will tune in to see who will win the prizes and watch the new game reveal the show is famous.

As for the disapprovals of this year’s list of nominees, I see a few. Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker had a great soundtrack, but Endwalker came out in December last year. While it still qualifies for this year’s awards as a result, those December games often seem to elude voters (which includes GamesBeat, by the way).

I would also have liked to see more nominations for Live A Live, but at least Xenoblade Chronicles 3 got a Game of the Year nomination. That’s a win for all the great Switch RPGs we’ve seen this year.
