Why was it nominated at The Game Awards 2020 if it was released two years ago?

The Game Awards 2020 already presented its nominees for this year, and Among Us was one of them, but how did they nominate it if it is from 2018?

Among Us has made us happy this year 2020 thanks to its great multiplayer gameplay. In fact, it is something very interesting that this game was nominated for two categories at the 2020 Game Awards.

Why is this funny? Nothing more and nothing less because Among Us was released in 2018 and not this year.

So how was he nominated?

Something that should be clarified is that many of the video game awards take into account very different things when nominating. So much so that Among Us was not even taken into account for the game of the year awards from the Google Play Store.

However, in this game it reached two categories in the games of the year, being Best Multiplayer Game and Best Mobile Game, categories that basically have won, because there is no more popular game than this in both categories.

So how was he nominated? Well, it really is not the first time that a game that did not come out a year is nominated for an award, such is the case of Overwatch, which won Game of the Year in 2016 but in later years it continued to be nominated in different categories, some of which it won, such as Best eSports Game in 2017 and 2018.

Basically Only those that did come out in the year in which the awards are held are taken into account for games of the year. In all other categories, the year is not that important.

So Among Us is nominated this year thanks to the great impact it has had on society and the large number of fans it has managed to win this year. That is why it is not unusual to see him nominated, Although it was a very pleasant surprise to see him appear in this year’s presentation video at The Game Awards 2020.
