The rest of the nominations for Spider-Man 2 include Best Game Direction, Best Narrative, Best Performance, Innovation in Accessibility, Best Action/Adventure, and Best Audio Design, although I’m pretty sure Alan Wake 2 will be taking that last one home.  Some of the other games that Insomniac’s magnum opus is going up against include Hi-Fi Rush, Diablo 4, Mortal Kombat 1, and Dead Space.

For those not in the know, fan voting for The Game Awards’ nominees will run until December 6 at 6 p.m. PT. The FAQ section of the event’s official web handle confirms that winners are selected by a “blended vote between the voting jury (90%) and public fan voting (10%).” As for the live event, catch Geoff Keighly hosting the show on Thursday, December 7, 2023, at the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles.
