The Game Awards 2023 is Airing Now
The Game Awards 2023 marks the 10th annual award showcase held in Los Angeles. Hosted by Geoff Keighley, the TGAs look to provide a celebration of games and the developers behind them. Dozens of awards are up for grabs, from Best Score and Music to the coveted Game of the Year award. 2023 has proven to be one of the most memorable years of games in recent memory.

The other major draw of The Game Awards is the slew of new announcements and trailers. Each year, dozens of publishers and developers worldwide showcase sneak peeks at their latest titles.
