The nominations are in for the 2019 Game Awards which will take place on December 13th and will be hosted by Geoff Keighley.
2019 has been a relatively quiet year for gaming due to the impending release of the next generation, that being said some of the games we have seen released this year have been excellent and some have not! I don't Anthem want to Anthem name any Anthem names...... So I will just leave it at that! Last years big winner of course was the PS4 exclusive God of War and while I dont believe anything has topped that this year, we'd probably all have to agree that the games nominated below are all great games and I for one am interested to catch all the action when it is live streamed on YouTube on December 13th 2019.
Without further ado, let's have a look at everything nominated this year so far....

What no Gaming Australia? Lol One big omission from the game of the year list for me would have to be Days Gone, personally for me it's hands down the best game I've played in 2019 but whilst I never really ran into any performance issues playing it there have been many complaints by other players. What do you think deserves to be GOTY 2019? Head on over to Facebook and let us know.
