The Game Awards 2018 will be aired on December 7 from 7:30 AM IST. The award show can be viewed on YouTube, Twitch, Facebook, Twitter, Steam TV, Mixer, Xbox Live and PlayStation 4.


The favorites in this award show

Among the numerous games nominated, God of War by Sony Santa Monica and Red Dead Redemption 2 by Rockstar Games are the clear favorites, each having won 8 nominations.

The former is playable only on PS4, the latter on PS4 and Xbox One.

Though both games received excellent reviews, some gamers might be slightly disappointed as this year's front-runners are not available on PC.
