Gamescom Award 2021 must be done without nominations from Nintendo or Sony • JPGAMES.DE

Nominees for the Gamescom Awards 2021 have been announced. As usual, the jury decides which games are best on the gamescam before the exhibition starts. This year there are 22 categories and the first winners will be presented live on Kaylee’s opening night on Wednesday.

Again there are fan types that you can determine for yourself. The categories of “Best Streamer” and “Most Wanted” are called Consumer Awards. 22 to 2 – This is not much of a so-called visitor exhibition because Gamescom was there before the epidemic.

The “Best Announcement” and “Best Trailer” Awards, for which all upcoming announcements and trailers for Opening Night Live will be selected, will be the actual trade show awards. However, here too, the arbitral tribunal will vote.

More clearly: The Gamescom Award can only be won by those who are part of the trade show. After several major rejections for the exclusive digital exhibition, the “Best Nintendo Switch Game” award did not include the Nintendo game. And the “best Sony PlayStation game” definitely comes from Bandai Namco, not from Sony Global Studio. Strange type. The nominees for the categories announced on Wednesday evening are:

  • Elton Ring, Bandai Namco Entertainment Germany
  • For Cry 6, Ubisoft
