The Game Awards 2018 Returns to Air Live This December

Make sure you tune in!


Geoff Keighley's brainchild and Hideo Kojima talent showcase hour The Game Awards is returning this year for another round, and you'll be able to tune in this December to watch it all unfold. The annual award show will take place on December 6 at 8:30 PM ET, with free livestreams going across the official website and social networks, just in case you can't make it in person or don't have cable -- it typically hasn't been broadcast on TV as of late, anyway.

The show will return to the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, with ticket sales starting up on June 8 at 1 PM ET on, so make sure you're in virtual line to get yours if you're interested in making the trip out this year.

If you've never watched a Game Awards show, you can check out last year's above. But there's a lot to these shows. For one, you can expect plenty of game trailers and reveals, awkward musical moments, even more awkward rants on stage, and tons of weird guests that don't really have much to do with games. But they're still a lot of fun, especially since everyone's favorite activity is to go online and rage about it all while it's happening. Let's try and have fun with it this year, and see what ends up getting some well-deserved recognition. It's been a year full of excellent games, that's for sure.
