Uncharted 4 Leads the Way in 2016 Game Award Nominations – Here’s the Full List
In just a couple of weeks, fans will be waiting with bated breath to see which of their favorite games will win at the 2016 Game Awards. It’s no wonder that everyone is excited to see this much anticipated awards ceremony. Over the past few years, The Game Awards have been climbing the ladder to become the Academy Awards of video games, and the stakes have never been higher for that coveted Game of the Year achievement.
With the hopes of having the best, the greatest, and the most beloved title in the industry, this upcoming ceremony has five titles that are all striving for the honor to be labeled “The Greatest Game”. DOOM (id Software/Bethesda), Inside (Playdead), Overwatch (Blizzard), Titanfall 2 (Respawn/Electronic Arts) and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (Naughty Dog/Sony Interactive Entertainment) are all vying for that number one spot, though it seems Naughty Dog’s title has a really good chance at winning the race.
Uncharted 4 has waltzed into the competition with not one, but five nominations at this year’s awards ceremony. Aside from Game of the Year, Uncharted 4 and Naughty Dog are also in the running for Best Game Direction, Best Narrative, Best Art Direction, and Best Action/Adventure Game. Naughty Dog also has several of their voice actors, including Troy Baker, nominated for Best Performance, and the excitement to see who will come out on top has been infectious.

While it seems that Uncharted has the 2016 Game Awards in the bag, it’s not to say that the other titles don’t stand a chance. For example, Overwatch has also been nominated for several awards, including Best Multiplayer, which gives Blizzard a bit of an edge over Naughty Dog. Stellar campaigns are a sure-fire way to earn notoriety, but it is multiplayer that brings us all together as gamers. Overwatch has definitely made a name for itself as a noteworthy title in that aspect, especially with its long awaited Sombra character DLC coming out recently. The competition is going to be stiff, but it will be fun to see who comes out victorious in the end, and the journey there is sure to keep everyone on the edges of their seats.
The 2016 Game Awards is making waves as the go-to source to vote for your favorite games of the year, though it’s not the only awards ceremony we must remember. The Independent Game Awards ceremony will be premiering in 2017, so make sure you cast your votes for that accolades ceremony as well.
