Here are all the Video Game Awards nominees

The Video Game Awards is an exciting time for gaymers everywhere, as the video games we all know and love are given a chance to shine in a way that’s similar to how the Oscars celebrate movies. It’s very fancy, you see a ton of celebrities and you get mad when none of your favourite games are end up being part of the Video Game Awards nominees.

You also make a drinking game with you and your friends to watch it, or that may just be us.

Anyway! Thanks to the official Video Game Awards twitter, we’re now aware of just who the nominees are for each category.
