The Game Awards 2020 Player’s Voice Voting Now Open

The Game Awards 2020 Players Voice

The Game Awards 2020 are just around the corner and will air on December 10, 2020. The award show opened online voting for the Player’s Voice award via its official website. The winner will be announced during the live show.

The Player’s Voice Award is a three-round bracket judging games entirely based on popularity with fans. This includes some games that released a bit too late to be considered for other categories at The Game Awards 2020. In Player’s Voice, each participant can vote for up to 10 of the 30 nominees in round one. In round two, the show narrows the nominees down to 10. Participants can vote for up to 5 of these nominees. Then, the final round is between five nominees, and participants can only vote for one. We’ve gathered the list of nominees below:

  • 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim
  • Among Us
  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons
  • Apex Legends
  • Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
  • Bugsnax
