Hosted live by Geoff Keighley in Los Angeles, the 6th annual show celebrates the best video games and esports of the year, and world premieres the most anticipated games of the future. With special musical performances by Chvrches, Green Day, Grimes, and an in-house orchestra.

The Game Festival
More than a dozen first-look game demos, available to play for a limited 48-hour window before they are removed from Steam.
Watch
Live on Thursday, December 12th at 8:30pm Eastern/5:30pm Pacific.

Nintendo swept the family game category? Really? Nobody else could make something good rated e?

Also, is death standing actually worth the nominations? Or is it just kojima fanclub?

I knew they existed but I would love someone to explain what they do and how these nominees were chosen. Like did they pull some crazy hail Mary strategy to pull an upset?

I think coaching started with Halo 2, someone there to shout out when power weapons respawn and tell how many enemies are on which side of the map (less mental load for players).

Unruly Heroes is a cool E-rated game... has that Rayman Origins artstyle (former devs). Sad to see that got overlooked for Family Game/Art Direction.

Also, I would have put Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden on the Strategy list (stealthing around before turn-based combat is a nice twist). Wargroove doesn't really change much from Advance Wars and it makes my eyes strain seeing an 8-bit style game on the tv nowadays.

Geoff Keighley and Hideo Kojima are friends, but the jury is composed of 80 critics/influencers so I think it's just a relative weak year for AAA games. I'm watching a playthrough of Death Stranding and it is boring me to tears, but the streamer says they would rate it 9 or 10 out of 10 so far. Plus it seems the new Star Wars game (SW: Jedi Fallen Order) missed the cutoff date by a day.

Seems like a super weak year. Calm before the storm. Next year is gonna be on another level compared to this year.

Achievements are for men who dream; men who dare; men who achieve!

I've heard it described as a walking simulator. What's not appealing about that?

Yeah, none of the games with that description have seemed like something for me.
Same with Disco Elysium, an RPG without combat? Eh, no thanks.

I get enough of that in meatspace!
People are comparing it to Planescape: Torment, which honestly didn't do much for me either.

I've heard DS referred to as Cargo Simulator. Rofl2

However, I have watched it on stream a bit and it is an interesting game from my perspective. Looks very well made.
