Roll up, roll up, it's time for our seventh annual Global Game Awards.
It's a juicy one this year as well. Deliciously unpredictable, if we may say so. There have been heaps of great games vying to inclusion in the GGA 2019, so many in fact that none have leapt, salmon-like, above the competition. Which is all very exciting for you and I, although perhaps a little nerve wracking for the talented folks behind these genius creations, as they eagerly await your critical votes.
This year, as with every year, there are dozens of categories and therefore dozens of awards up for grabs. We are to celebrate the greatest achievements of 2019; from the AAA video game titans through to the surprising indie gems which came out of nowhere and knocked our socks off.
We've whittled down the best games and hardware of 2019 to just over 200 nominees, but now it's down to YOU. It's time for the wonderful GD community to put our collective heads together and let everyone know which games and hardware you think is worth celebrating.
The voting is now open and the winners are set to be announced on December 6th. Having spent far too much time exploring digital worlds this year, I can say with absolute certainty that there are a whole bunch of utterly fantastic video game nominees here, while on the hardware front there's also sorts of lighting fast goodies which are worth of being your next rig upgrade.
Voting Opens Today: Friday, 15th November at 5:30pm GMT
Voting Closes: Wednesday, 4th December at 6pm GMT
Winner Announced: Thursday, 5th December

Winner announcement: Ok I have heard back from our lucky AMD RX 5700 XT winner and the winner is.... B.Moon from Sweden for inviting a friend to participate in the competition. Interestingly our winner was very active in the Global Game Awards and the giveaway competition. All their activity checked out as legitimate, before anyone thinks dark thoughts. They had a lot of entries, including 5 "click each day for entry" and a bunch of votes in our GGA.
Anyway, thank you everyone for getting involved. It was another hugely successful Game Awards that the industry got involved in around the world and while it takes us a tonne of effort to get all of it running, it certainly gives our community a fun thing to participate in and helps draw in lots of new faces to our GD family. Welcome to all our new friends!
I have to say, a few of us, Jon and Squee included, are still a bit baffled how the voters chose Death Stranding to beat out the other titles for GOTY. Its not even a PC game, yet! Anyway, it just seems that Death Stranding fans who are willing to visit GD and participate are just in greater number than those from other spaces I suppose.
More fun is coming for us on GD over the Christmas months and I will do another giveaway of some Steam cash for someone to spend on games! As always, loyal GD'ers, remember that anything and everything you can do to share the Awards, promote your favourite nominees, and get people's eyes on Game Debate is both immensely appreciated and very helpful for the continued presence of GD!
