The Game Developers Choice Awards are set to take place at the 2021 Game Developers Conference (commonly known as GDC) on the 21st July, and PlayStation’s leading the way in terms of nominations. Both Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us: Part II are at the top of the pile, with six nominations each. Indie darling Hades (we’re still holding out on a PlayStation port!) also has six nominations to its name.
It should be noted that nominations are decided by developers from throughout the industry, so this is pretty high praise for Sucker Punch and Naughty Dog. Both PS4 exclusives are up for Game of the Year, alongside the aforementioned Hades and VR hit Half Life: Alyx.
Here are the six awards that Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us: Part II are both nominated for:
- Best Audio
- Best Design
- Best Narrative
- Best Technology
- Best Visual Art
- Game of the Year
Fellow PS4 excusive Dreams is in the mix as well, with three nominations for Innovation, Best Technology, and Best VR/AR game. You can find a full list of every nominee over on the official GDC blog.
