Today The Game Awards announced its 2020 nominees across a wide range of categories including Game of the Year, Best VR/AR Game of the Year, and more. At least one VR game appears in 8 out of 29 categories which, I’m fairly certain, is the most ever. Half-Life: Alyx is the most widely nominated.

Of course the big one for The Game Awards is obviously VR/AR Game of the Year and they’ve done a good job of selecting a wide range of experiences across multiple platforms. Here are the nominees:
