    Six eSports awards? What does "best event" even mean?

    All "family game" nominees are Nintendo titles, lol.

    "Fresh indie game" presented by... Subway.

    "Best independent game" seems like it has some worthy nominees, especially spanning a nice range of genres. Indie games continuing to keep the industry fresh (you got that right, Subway!). Any snubs I missed?

    Tetris 99 winning "best multiplayer game" would make my day!

      It doesn't matter what industry it is, but all industry awards are designed for the sole purpose of advertising, and there is a lot of money behind esports right now.

      I really think Smash Ultimate should take game of the year. The devs poured so much content and soul into the game. It’s amazing.

        I'm not even a Smash (or fighting game) fan but I can just see the heart that went into it, it would be a worthy pick! I think it actually stands a chance.
