News + The Game Awards 2019: authorship invades the nominations


We have now reached the sixth edition of The Game Awards and the flavor is increasingly Oscar night. Geoff keighley, historical presenter of the event, through a timely video uploaded to Youtube, announces all the nominations for the various categories in the race. The comparison with the most coveted prize in the cinema field is absolutely not pretentious, given the importance that the videogame medium is conquering worldwide and the artistic quality achieved by some of today's titles. What emerges from these nominations, regardless of the winners, is how much theauthorial element has been taken into account. Obviously there is a stand out Death Stranding, that from the top of his 9 appointments promises to hoard prizes that not even The Lord of the Rings - The Return of the King in 2004. But to give him battle for the conquest of the coveted Game of the year, there will be Control, Resident Evil 2, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, The Outer Worlds e Sekiro: Shadow Die Twice. All titles that contain strong authorial components, many of them not suitable for a mass audience.

Unlike the Academy which struggles to adapt to changing times, The Game Awards has always accepted the two contrasting videogame souls, trying through a single event to make them reconcile. If among the artistic categories we find for example Best Game Direction, Best Narrative o Best Performance (the latter increasingly rich in top-level actors), among those considered to be more mainstream we find Best Ongoing Game, Best Mobile Game e Best community support.



The latter could make purists turn up their noses, who could argue that there is no artistic skill to be rewarded. But the video game it was not born as an art form, although fortunately it has become. The purpose of the first video games was to to entertain and it is right that at The Game Awards the titles that have managed to involve more areas of the videogame community, regardless of artistic qualities, are awarded. Among the latter this year we find Apex Legends more and more fit, Destiny 2 Shadowkeep, resurrected thanks to the transition to Steam and the evergreen Fortnite.

The Game Awards 2019 will be held at 02 hours: 30Thursday 12 December. Last year we saw God of War blow the title of GOTY to a favorite Red Dead Redemption II. Cory Barlog (game director of God of War), during the development expressed several times the desire to publish the game as far as possible from the Rockstar masterpiece, considering it unattainable. We'll see if this edition will also have as many surprises in store for us.
