Heeeeere it comes.... its time for our eighth annual Global Game Awards.

Oh its going to be one of the biggest game awards I think we have ever had, with some big punching titles that are just releasing. Our votes are likely to sway depending on how well these big game titles meet their own hype. Its all wonderfully unpredictable and there are hundreds of entries in both hardware and gaming categories to look across.

But of course, this year's global game awards 2020 is a perfect showcase of everything that has made our gaming year so great. Not everything can get into our shortlists mind you, but this years hardware, game, developer nominees lists are the best of the best. And it certainly makes for a wonderful "must-have" shopping list of all the best the gaming industry, in 2020, has to offer.

This year, as with every year, there are dozens of categories and their accompanying awards up for grabs. We are always overjoyed, and of course humbled, that the members of the industry, who produce the games and hardware we so love and have nominated, actually watch our Global Game Awards and share their interest in how they do in the Global Game Awards 2020. So you the voters know, we get in direct contact with all the winners of our awards, to let them know if they manage to come top in our awards.

And this is all decided by you guys, the gamers and enthusiasts that buy their products and cast your votes in the Global Game Awards 2020.

We've whittled down the best games and hardware of 2020 to just over 200 nominees, but now it's down to YOU to select your favourites of 2020.

The voting is now open and the winners are set to be announced on December 17th.

Living a lot of my time this year in digital worlds, its pretty easy to say that there are a whole bunch of utterly fantastic video game nominees in our GG Awards 2020, and then in the hardware award categories we can all certainly consider the nominees as worthy additions for your next rig upgrade.
