Deathloop, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and Psychonauts 2 lead The Game Awards nominations.

The Game Awards founder and host Geoff Keighley has revealed the nominations for this year's The Game Awards.

We would say that the nominations are expected, without any major surprises. Bethesda and Xbox are the most nominated publisher with more than 20 nominations - mainly for Double Fine's Psychonauts 2 and Arkane Studios' Deathloop.

Some would argue that Returnal was a strong candidate for GOTY but it was not included in the final list, just like Playground Games' racer Forza Horizon 5, which is the highest-rated game of 2021 on Metacritic.

So without further ado, let's check out the games that will compete for the Game of The Year trophy.

Game of the Year

  • Deathloop (Bethesda/Arkane Studios)
  • Psychonauts 2 (Xbox Game Studios/Double Fine)
  • Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart (SIE/Insomniac Games)
  • It Takes Two (EA/Hazelight Studios)
  • Metroid Dread (Nintendo/Mercury Stream)
  • Resident Evil: Village (Capcom)
