List of Titles Nominated to The Game Awards 2019

Today, the nominations for The Game Awards 2019 have been revealed, and we have seen games that will compete in more than twenty categories. Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding, Resident Evil 2 remake, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and The Outer Worlds will compete for the title of the best.

Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding has received the most nominations from all games.

The end of the year is inevitably approaching, and as a result, the summaries of the last twelve months and a floof of awards. It's no different in the video game industry, where the most famous is The Game Awards, which is often referred to as the gaming equivalent of Film Academy Awards (commonly known as Oscars). We have just learned the full list of not only nominated games, but also the most important personalities and events and the best eSport players. Prizes will be awarded based on votes of a properly selected jury, which included Gamepressure, and the community (where you can vote after registration on the official website).

Death Stranding definitely has the best chance of success at The Game Awards 2019. The production received nine nominations, including in the categories Game of the Year and Best Director. Control by Remedy (eight nominations) was surprisingly highly acclaimed. The new IP from Obsdian Entertainment, The Outer Worlds (four nominations), also has reasons to be satisfied. But without prolonging it unnecessarily, here's the complete list of nominations in all available categories:
