The Game Awards 2017

The Game Awards 2017

It all started from the Spike Video Game Awards also known as the VGAs, and the VGX in its final year. It was an annual award show hosted by Spike TV between 2003 and 2013 that recognized the best computer and video games of the year.

Spike decided to drop their annual award show and announced it publicly on November 10, 2014, ending their decade-long run. Geoff Keighley Canadian gaming journalist used to work in Spike Video Game Awards, went on to create his own video game award show in the form of The Game Awards starting in that year, dropping the support from Spike.
The Game Awards recognizes and upholds creative and technical excellence in the global video game industry. It brings together a diverse group of players, game developers, and notable names from gaming industry to celebrate and advance gaming’s position as the most immersive, challenging and inspiring form of entertainment.
Their Awards ceremony, held annually in December, celebrates both game creators and game players, and gives fans a sneak preview of games set to be released in the future. The program is broadcasted globally, free-of-charge, on all gaming screens and digital platforms, and recognizes video games across PC, mobile, console, VR/AR.
