It’s that time of the year. The Game Awards’ nomination for the 2023 Game of the Year award is finally out, and six exceptional titles will be vying for the coveted trophy. 

The prestigious lineup includes Alan Wake 2, Baldur’s Gate 3, Spider-Man 2, Resident Evil 4, Super Mario Bros. Wonder, and Zelda Tears of the Kingdom. The awards ceremony will be held on December 7, 2023, at the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles.

The joint force of Microsoft-owned Xbox, Bethesda, and Blizzard amassed a total of ten nominations, falling short just three less behind PlayStation Studio with the highly-anticipated SpiderMan 2.  Both Alan Wake 2 and Baldur’s Gate 3 collect 8 nominations each, leading the pack as the most nominated games this year.
