The nominations for the 24th annual Game Developers Choice Awards (GDCA) have been announced, and two of this year’s biggest games are in the running for the most awards. There are some smaller contenders in the mix.
Baldur’s Gate 3 And The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom both have a chance to win seven prizes, which means they share first place. In third place comes the atmospheric puzzle game Cocoon, and while this puzzle game may be smaller than the two major players vying for the top spot, it shouldn’t be a huge surprise considering it comes from the lead gameplay designer of Limbo And Inside.
All three of these titles are also in the running for the coveted Game of the Year award. In addition to these, Dave the diver, DredgingAnd Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 have also been nominated. This nomination could be another good opportunity for that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 to actually come away with an award from an awards ceremony, because even with seven nominations at The Game Awards it remained without wins.
Across the board, there are 16 games released last year that were nominated for various awards, including Alan Wake2, Hi-Fi rush, And Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
You can find out who won and who lost these awards on March 20 at the ceremony, which will be held at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco in conjunction with the Independent Games Festival Awards.
If you always want to get in on the action, there’s a chance for regular players to take part in the voting. A Audience award voting is also available for you to vote on, so you can help choose which of the 16 nominations deserves the top spot.
