The Game Awards are back! It’s the season for celebrating this year’s best games and fighting over the most deserving of them. Some fans are already battling over their snubbed favorites and the Player’s Voice Award, but hey. We’re here for the drama. On the bright side, TGA host Geoff Keighley says that this year’s show will be shorter than usual. The Game Awards is also hosting a generous Steam Deck giveaway that you should sign up for if you planning on watching the show all the way through to the end.
