Insta-Forum - Who Do You Think Will Win At The VGXs This Year?

December 7, 2013

We are HOURS away from the VGX! Do you have your pencils ready? We’ve got the list of nominees for the VGX (formally called the VGAs or Video Game Awards). Geoff Keighley promises that this year will be an all new show.

Fully redesigned and reformatted from the ground up.  We can only hope because honestly, they were pretty embarrassing the past couple of years. A whopping 50 game franchises and 20 different publishers were nominated this year.

Grand Theft Auto V was nominated 9 times including Game of the Year, Best Action Adventure Game, and Best Soundtrack. BioShock Infinite scored eight nominations, while The Last of Us  pulled in seven nods.

VGX will be live streamed for three-hours on Saturday, December 7, beginning at 6:00 PM ET / 3:00 PM PT.
