Here is the list of nominees for the games of the year 2021


For months now, the very talkative Geoff Keighely has spent part of his days preparing for the Game Awards cremonia, which will be held on December 9. In the meantime, here is the hour of the nominees. Drum roll !

Did you want them? Here they are ! After a selection that mobilizes industry players like every year, the long list of games named for the many categories sometimes sent between two advertising inserts has fallen, and the list goes on. To all lord, all honor: let’s start with the very popular game of the year award. Who to succeed The Last of Us Part II? The bets are open, in the absence of votes, since the Game Awards website was simply knocked out at the time of the announcements.
