The VGX (formerly SpikeTV’s VGAs) have released the full list of nominees across their 21 awards categories.
Twenty of the awards are voted on by an advisory panel of 23 experts from around the videogame industry, with the last award, Most Anticipated Game, being voted on by the public.
Leading the way this year is Grand Theft Auto V with nine nominations, including Game of the Year, Best Soundtrack, and a Studio of the Year nom for Rockstar North. Bioshock Infinite has the second most with eight nominations, and The Last of Us comes next with seven. Both are also up for Game of the Year. To see all the categories and nominations, you can head over to the official VGX website.
The VGX is a rebranding of the long-running videogame awards show meant to coincide with the advent of next-gen consoles and a move to live, digital streaming across a variety of gaming platforms and Viacom Properties including Spike.com, ComedyCentral.com, MTV.com, GameTrailers.com, and more.
The new digital format will allow the VGX to focus an entire day solely on gaming, including the world premieres and breaking news the show is known for. The awards kick off live Saturday, December 7, at 6 p.m. Eastern Time, 3 p.m. Pacific.
