Here are all the nominees for this year's Game Awards 2020

Digit NewsDesk   Nov 19, 2020

The annual Game Awards are finally here, and we’ve got a list of all the nominations for 2020. Announced yesterday, these games could be seen as the last bastions of the current gen consoles while we eagerly wait for a new line up of games for the next generation of consoles in the Xbox One and the PS5. The awards show will be held in LA on December 10. Also, we would like to mention that Digit.in are the only Indian jury member on the panel. 

A little surprising is Last of Us 2 being nominated for 10 awards while being one of the most devising games of the generation. Many fans felt it was a terrible game while some thought it was the next best thing since sliced bread. We played the game and thought very highly of it in our review, which you can read here. Other nominations include Ghost of Tsushima, Hades, Doom eternal and more. 

You can check out the rest of the nominees in the list below.
