The 22nd annual Game Developers Choice Awards , hosted by game designer Osama Dorias, is the leading peer-based video game event celebrating the industry’s top games and developers. This year sees Arkane Studios’ Deathloop leading with six nominations, closely followed by Hazelight Studios’ It Takes Two (five nominations) and Playground Games’ Forza Horizon 15 (four nominations). All three of these titles were nominated for the prestigious Game of the Year award—alongside Capcom’s Resident Evil Village and Daniel Mullins Games’ Inscryption .

At the GDCA ceremony, Steven Spohn, a driving force for accessibility in games and Senior Director of Development of the AbleGamers charity, will receive the Ambassador Award. Yuji Horii, the creator of the legendary Dragon Quest series, will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award for his decades of dedication to the craft of video game development.
