The Game Awards 2022 When Where Watch

The Game Awards Gets Hype Trailer Ahead of The Show

The Game Awards 2023 is just a few days away and host/creator Geoff Keighley has debuted a hype trailer to get people buzzing about the event later this week. Celebrating the biggest gaming releases of the year, The Game Awards aims to bring together the industry and award the best games with top honours across several categories.

The hype trailer for The Game Awards was edited by Geoff Keighley himself – and rather well, we might add. It’s a collection of clips picked from the numerous games nominated at the event this year including Baldur’s Gate 3, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Alan Wake 2, Super Mario Bros. Wonder, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor and many others.
