Siamo ormai alla fine dell’anno, e come da tradizione sono state svelate le nomination per i The Game Awards 2021 di quest’anno, andiamo a scoprirli.

Ad annunciare candidati e categorie è come al solito Geoff Keighley, il famoso conduttore sempre più conosciuto per i suoi eventi a tema gaming, rivelandoci le ben 30 categorie di premi dei The Game Awards 2021 e soprattutto i Game of the Year (GOTY). Sorprendentemente però a quest’ultima categoria mancano 2 giochi che erano fra i più attesi, ovvero Forza Horizon 5 e Returnal, due giochi che sia per la stampa che per i fan avrebbero meritato una candidatura al GOTY.
