It’s all about non-stop, sweat inducing, heart pumping, high-octane action in this Award Category. The sort of titles that demand a constant stream of coffee pumped straight into the veins, just to get you focused enough to keep up. The year’s greatest action games are those that left you itching to play “just a bit more” and going toe to toe with some of the gaming’s greatest enemies in explosive action-packed battles. Often inspired by some of the classic action hero movies, we may find titles ranging from 3rd person beat-em-ups or possibly action-packed racers through to sci-fi space blasters. Many games fall under this category but only the most innovative, well-paced, and explosive titles are nominated for the Best Action Game Award.
