Why aren’t The Game Awards decided by fan voting? Well, The Game Awards website rightfully notes that such systems create “several challenges.” Most notably, they don’t want the winners to be “‘socially engineered’ in any way.” For more information on what that means, see pretty much every online vote in the history of the internet. Additionally, they recognize that multiplatform games would have an inherent advantage in most categories due to their widespread availability.
The Game Awards 2023: How to Vote
To vote on The Game Awards 2023, you simply need to go to The Game Awards website. After creating an account, you’ll be able to cast a vote in any category.
Please note that accounts are limited to 31 total votes (one per category) and that there is no “Ranked Choice” system for these awards. In other words, the votes you cast should be for the games you want to see win each award.
Currently, fan voting is scheduled to end on December 6 at 6 AM PT.
