The Game Awards 2018 Thread - "More than 10" game announcements

Starts in just under 8 hours at the time of posting. Here's the stream on YouTube:

And here's the one on Twitch:

Not going to bother posting the categories and nominees - I'm not really interested in them. New game announcements, on the other hand, piques my curiosity. Here are what we know will definitely be revealed:

  • A new game by Obsidian.
  • A new Far Cry game.
  • A new game by Koei Tecmo.

Epic will also be showing up to talk about their Steam competitor, and expect new trailers on already announced upcoming games like Rage 2. I've also found rumours that a new Alien game and Dragon Age 4 might also be announced.

So, will you be watching? What are you looking forward to? Heard any other game reveal rumours?

Update: And that's a wrap. Here's a link to the Wikipedia page with all the nominees and winners, for anyone who cares.

We should have a word count of the use of "biggest" and "hottest".

I was thinking more of a drinking game... ...then I thought that would probably kill someone. Probably not a good idea, then.

I'll be sound asleep in bed when this is on, I'll see the game trailers on Youtube tomorrow. Screw the awards though, I'm not even slightly interested.

Oh yeah, I’ll definitely be watching the show tonight. I’m really looking forward to seeing anything about Dragon Age 4 and whatever else might show up.

That could mean 9/10 are mobile games/remasters/ports. Don't get your hopes up.

@madrocketeer: So glad you made this TGA thread cause I wasn't in the mood to do it.

Thank You!

You can thank my dumb decision to do back-to-back solo Eidolon hunts while under the effect of my chronic insomnia instead. Too tired to keep gaming, not tried enough to sleep, might as well get this done before that changes.

This shit is like 3 hours long supposedly. I Better hit up the liquor store before it starts. Hopefully Metroid is shown and finally gives me a reason to buy a switch.

@madrocketeer: Just hope World Premiere and First Look aren't used incorrectly like they are everywhere. "10 Game Announcements" sounds like 10 games we didn't know existed before tonight. I've learned with the VGA's that could mean absolutely anything. It could be a new mode for GTA Online and they'd still call it a World Premiere.

Looking forward towards obsidian game, and new mortal kombat game. Not looking forward towards dragon age 4 even if they announced it next year. I think dragon age 4 will have a teaser trailer. Bioware always likes teasing people early with their games. I'm kind looking forward towards Rage 2 but if they show more same gameplay videos and if the game doesn't improve during last E3 then I think the game will be bad and its employees incompetent.

Starting. Phew. Just in time after quickly popping by Warframe for a quick Hieracon run and a Void Traces Alert.

We have sound. Progress!

Edit 1: Five minutes later, pictures! Opening montage, the usual.

Looks to be some sort of space game. Apparently set on Alpha Centauri.

Journey to the Savage Planet. Now for the dev to talk about it. Some sort adventure game. Sounds like another survival game.

Next Award. Best RPG. Monster Hunter World. Pretty obvious, really. Hope to get it on Steam sale soon.

Best Student game. Less than two minutes to show. Geoff will probably kick them off stage in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

Next premiere. Among Trees. Ooh, lovely art style. Nice music too. Survival game, maybe?

Show starting. Finally.
