This year’s The Game Awards will be held on December 9 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. It will be an in-person event, but attendance is by invite only. This will be one of the first game events to return to in-person since the onset of the pandemic, so restrictions will likely be in place for the safety of attendees. It will be streamed online. Host Geoff Keighley is expected to return as well.

Last year’s event was virtual and nearly three and a half hours long. It featured guest appearances from Christopher Nolan, Gal Gadot, Tom Holland, Brie Larson, Reggie Fils-Aime, The Muppets, Stephen A. Smith, Nolan North, Troy Baker, and more. There were also a live performances from Eddie Vedder and the London Philharmonic, conducted by Lorne Balfe. The Last of Us Part 2 received a large number of awards against other nominees such as Doom Eternal, Ghost of Tsushima, and Final Fantasy VII Remake. This year’s guests and nominees have not been announced.


We bring together a diverse group of game developers, game players, and notable names from popular culture to celebrate and advance gaming’s position as the most immersive, challenging and inspiring form of entertainment. We strive to recognize those who improve the wellbeing of the community and elevate voices that represent the future of the medium.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
