Video games nominated for Game Awards 2020

Naughty Dog | Innersloth

Video games did not suffer as much from the global health situation as it did with other entertainment industries, such as movies and mass events.

While E3 2020 had to be canceled, the big companies like Microsoft and Sony managed to show not only their novelties of the year, but also to present the new generation of consoles.

Guerrilla Games

Despite some delays, most of the major video games were able to be released in time to be considered at the 2020 Game Awards, one of the biggest awards ceremonies in the industry.

The 2020 Game Awards already have their nominees, and there are several surprises, such as the absence of Cyberpunk 2077, because it could not be released before the first days of November, the deadline to be considered for this award.

CD Project RED

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, The Last of Us 2 Y Ghost of Tsushima They are the big competitors this year, and you can now vote for your favorite from the official page or from their Twitter account. Winners will be announced on December 10th.

The Last of Us; Part II is the great favorite to be the top winner of this edition, as it has 10 nominations including Game of the Year, Best Art Direction and two opportunities for Best Performance.

Very close is Ghots of Tsushima, since it has 7 nominations among which are Game of the Year, Best Narrative and Best Audio Design.

PlayStation

A big surprise is without a doubt Final Fantasy 7 Remake, as it had a great reception by fans even after several delays.

The black horse could be Hades, an RPG by Supergiant Games that has 8 nominations, and could surprise by beating the favorites in the main categories.

Epic Games

Next to Cyberpunk 2077 (which will surely be considered for next year) another video game that could not be released in time for the 2020 edition of the Game Awards was Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
