In honor of The Game Awards (TGA) coming up tomorrow, let’s reflect on what truly makes TGA more memorable than any other show; the cringe. What awkward moments are you looking forward to the most? Vote and comment below!

Also, I will be updating this with who won what category if I feel motivated to do so. If I am delayed from doing so it is probably due to watching reaction videos to people laughing at the cringe moments we are about to experience, please understand.

Not familiar with some of the names in the list except for Kojima.

Anyways, I voted for confusing trailers although I'm not gonna bother watching the show - gonna read the highlights after the show or the next day.

I'm still salty about the game of the year nominations, they got it all wrong. But I suppose the six games they mentioned are the most popular...





'The' game awards? Aren't there like a 100 or more? It's all just advertisements anyway.

It's literally called that. And yes there are a ton of others, but this one weighs more and has quite a viewership (and growth year over year). It's like movies; tons of awards but only one Oscar. 

And if by "advertisements" you are referring to brand new game world premieres and more of games we know about being shown, that is a good thing lol. Basically we get an award show, funny moments (intentionally and unintentionally), and a mini E3 all wrapped into one show. I have watched every year and quite enjoy it!



I just hope to get some definitive info on Tales of Arise and Dragon Age 4. I feel like I first heard of them like 91842192384 years ago and still nothing regarding release date or even an extended teaser/trailer. Some drama involving Kojima would also be much appreciated.

Almost forgot about that.

But I think we'll probably hear more about anything Tales if not at the VGA at this event: https://www.gematsu.com/2020/12/tales-of-series-25th-anniversary-special-live-stream-set-for-december-15

*exhale smoke*

well last year show was actually quite tame in comparison to most of what is listed there to be honest and with Geoff wishes to make the show into a similar ceremony of the caliber like the different movie Academy Awards, I just don't see how cringe this year could get except for unforseen events ...

Still, the only thing watchable will be the game anouncements, rest is almost irrelevant.
