The Game Awards 2017

#The #Game #Awards 2017 is an upcoming video game award ceremony and the fourth incarnation of The Game Awards. This event will be hosted by #Geoff Keighley and is set to place at the #Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on December 7, 2017, which will be honoring the best video games and their achievements of 2017.

The Game Awards recognizes and upholds creative and technical excellence in the global video game industry. They bring together a diverse group of game players, game developers, and notable names from popular culture to celebrate and advance gaming’s position as the most immersive, challenging and inspiring form of #entertainment.

Their Awards ceremony, held annually in December, celebrates both game creators and game players, and gives fans a sneak preview of games set to be released in the future. The program is broadcast globally, free-of-charge, on all gaming screens and digital platforms, and recognizes video games across PC, mobile, console, VR/AR, and also eSports.


It's finally that time of the year to honor the best games played this year. The 2017 Game Awards have announced their nominees for this year's most prestigious industry prizes, including the coveted Game of the Year Award.


With the debut of The Game Awards Orchestra, an all-star group of orchestral and rock musicians who will come together to celebrate video game music, this event will kickstart.
