End-of-year gaming event not to be missed, the eighth edition of this grandiose event is already being prepared.
Summer is only beginning to draw to a close when Geoff Keighley is already giving news of his winter event. Since 2014, the Game Awards have rewarded the games of the year in different categories, a bit like a video game Oscar ceremony. But finally, the popularization of this evening in just a few editions will have propelled it to the rank of E3 at the end of the year. Filled with announcements of all kinds, many are waiting for this event like a virtual Santa Claus arriving with a basket full of beautiful trailers.
This year, Geoff Keighley has set his sights on the date of December 8, 2022. The father of competing events at E3 (namely the Summer Game Fest, the Gamescom Opening Night Live and the Game Awards) intends to put on a big show for his last show of the year. It is from the sublime Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles that the presentation will be broadcast around the world.
📣 We have a date! 📣
THE GAME AWARDS

The category is…
To continue to make The Game Awards a fresh and up-to-date moment, the organizers continue to add new categories on a regular basis. For this 2022 edition, adaptations will be in the spotlight. Attention, it is not a question of adaptations of books or films in video games, but many works which are directly inspired by video game titles. The description for the Best Adaptation award explains that the nominees will be “series, movies, books, podcasts, comics and more that authentically adapt a video game”.
Adaptations of this genre have been around for some time now, so it’s no surprise to see a category dedicated to them being introduced at The Game Awards. Who of Cuphead Show, Tekken Bloodlines or the series Halo will have its place among the nominees? Suffice to say that the battle is likely to be tight. The appointment is therefore given on December 8, 2022 to discover this award as well as the highly anticipated game of the year. In the meantime, the Gamescom opening ceremony will take place this Tuesday, August 23 at 8 p.m.
