Best Innovators
This award is looking at games and hardware in our industry that break the ways of old apart and bring us an innovative change to what we're used to. Not content to follow the reliable formula, sometimes something can really shine through because it tries something different. It might not be perfect this time around, but this award heralds the attempts as much as the successes. Without innovation the industry would become boring fast and we must pat on the back all of those who try.
While Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey isn’t an unmitigated success, it is a game which absolutely deserves credit for trying something new. Charting the path of our pre-history, Ancestors is a devastatingly unique survival game about evolution - trial and error, risk and reward, life and death.

Google Stadia
While not strictly hardware based, Google Stadia is the console-like gaming service which aims to eliminate consoles under your telly for good. It’s early days for Google Stadia but first impressions are mighty impressive and there’s certainly a case to be made that Google Stadia could open the door to entirely new gameplay experiences. Question marks remain over Stadia’s long term success but for now we’re itching to watch it all unfold.
