Who Will Take The Game of the Year Title?
2017 has already seen some incredible video game releases, and the year isn’t even over yet! Nevertheless, the annual Game of the Year Awards have released their list of nominees… And PUBG is a contender in the main category! This has been a hot issue, with lots of gamers – and even PlayerUnknown himself – questioning whether our favorite game is ready for the title. If you lean towards single-player, it’s probably tough with releases like Super Mario Odyssey and Horizon: Zero Dawn to consider. Geoff Keighley, creator of the Game Awards, expressed similar thoughts in his official statement. “With incredible new Zelda and Mario games releasing in the same year, plus the phenomenon that is PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, we’ve never had a more diverse slate of nominees…” It’s sure to be a close battle between all the nominees!
Of course, Brendan ‘PlayerUnknown’ Greene is on record as stating that “Personally, I don’t want to win a Game of the Year award.” Would it be awkward if he wound up taking the title anyway? Only time will tell what players prefer, but we’ve got our fingers crossed! Read all the analysis and full list of nominees at VentureBeat!
