these are the nominees and favorites

On December 10, the next celebration of The Game Awards 2020 will take place, the great prizes of the world of video games, which despite maintaining its face-to-face gala, will focus on greater dissemination in the digital field, with up to 45 free platforms available across the globe.

And it is that despite the eventfulness of this year, marked mainly by delays, the competition has remained quite close, as shown by the list of nominees that have just been published.

In total we will find 30 categories, returning to recover a couple of categories compared to last year, which we wanted to separate into three main blocks, differentiating the awards for developers and others involved in the development of the game, the titles of each genre, and electronic sports.
