The Game Awards is an annual awards ceremony to honor outstanding artistic, technical, and gameplay achievements in the video game industry. Spanning console, mobile, and PC gaming, as well as eSports, The Game Awards is the first of a new breed of award shows, built from the ground up exclusively for global digital and streaming platforms.
The awards show, 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.
The Game Awards was created in 2014 by media entrepreneur Geoff Keighley. Over the past two decades, Keighley has served as a journalist, host, and producer of video game programming across multiple platforms, including print, television, and digital media. Keighley is perhaps best known for his work over the years with Entertainment Weekly, Spike TV, G4, and YouTube, as well as his landmark series of behind the scenes game development stories known as “The Final Hours.” In 2017 he also produced E3’s first consumer programming, the “E3 Coliseum,” two days of panels with game creators and master storytellers from other entertainment mediums.
