That time of year has come around once more! On Friday, December 9 at 11.30 a.m. AEDT, the Game Awards will return for a sixth year, this time to the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles and screens around the world via Livestream.

The nominees in all 31 categories have been announced, and voting has begun, just in time for the ceremony.

The nominations are put forth by a panel of judges consisting of industry figures and prominent gaming publications (Press Start Australia was fortunate enough to be included again this year), with the winners being decided by a vote from both the industry and fans.

Some of the year’s biggest games, such as Elden Ring, God of War: Ragnarök, and Xenoblade Chronicles 3, are leading the pack for the big prize of Game of the Year for 2022.

Some of the year’s biggest hits, including Immortality and Citizen Sleeper, are represented in the Best Narrative and Games for Impact categories, and the indie category is stacked with excellent games like Cult of the Lamb, Stray, and Tunic.
