The Game Awards 2018 Nominations

Geoff Keighley has announced the nominations for the fifth annual Game Awards, celebrating the very best in video games across all platforms throughout the year. Do note that the cutoff for this year's nominations was late October/early November, so many games from later in the fall unfortunately could not make the cut.


Most significantly for the purposes of this site are the nominees for Best Performance - which, just as it says on the tin, commemorates the best acting performances throughout this year's games.
