Presenting The Game Awards 2019 nominees in full

The Game Awards 2019 nominations have been announced and they are reminding me of what a wild year it’s been for the industry. Heaps and heaps of games have been tipped for heaps and heaps of awards, and there are some awesome aspirants for a few of the accolades. 

Expectedly, Death Stranding is peppered in for a smattering of awards, but it will contend with Resident Evil 2, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Control, and The Outer Worlds for Game of the Year. All are VIGs, so it’s all to play for.
