Today’s nominees Game AwardsThe now traditional annual awards ceremony where the games considered the best of the year are awarded and the big names are among them Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Baldur’s Gate III and up to Super Mario Bros. Wonder. However, there are those who are not invited to this celebration, at least in the game of the year.
The question is the great absence StarfieldLatest production by Bethesda And promises to be great launch Xbox This year, although it didn’t enter the Best Titles of 2023 section, it was nominated for Best RPG alongside other titles that left their mark e.g. Final Fantasy XVI. However, this was not enough for fans of the brand, so they are now protesting against the award for not including it in more categories.
Here are some comments:
As expected, some nominations for Starfield and outside of this 2023 GOTY category, as I said before, I withdraw my support for these awards and will not send this mock video games, where the press and Geoff are biased against Xbox. No 2013 xbox… pic.twitter.com/OGNQf6UDIj

Their hatred of Game Awards and Microsoft is not normal.
They never nominate a game for GOTY
No Starfield, no Hi Fi Rush, no Forza, no Diablo 4
Hogwarts isn’t even there…
Spiderman 2 is one of the worst games of the year but there always has to be presentation… pic.twitter.com/fvuhDHauqD

Keeping this detail in mind, people thought that it was a boycott by the event organizer, Geoff Keighley, It will be against the brand Xbox As such, since several years no product associated with this brand has been designated. It’s even suspected that the game would have had a better chance if it had been released on multiplatform, but since it’s from a now-proprietary studio Microsoft They immediately turned against him.
On the other hand, they also criticized it The Hogwarts Legacy There was no mention, and that could be the reason Game Awards I don’t want any kind of conflict with the LGBT community. And we can’t forget that this sector wanted to cancel the game because of inappropriate comments by the author of the book. Harry Potter. This may be one of the reasons why it wasn’t nominated for Best Action or RPG Game.
Note that the award will take place later 16th December
Editor’s note: It definitely seemed counterintuitive to me that they didn’t put him among the nominees, maybe he wasn’t going to win, but at least they should have put him on the podium of these greats. It is understood that users are not happy with this decision.
