There are 30 categories of nominees at The Game Awards, but these are some of the ones we think are the most anticipated at the event. 103 media outlets are a part of the jury that all puts forward votes for the nominees at The Game Awards, which are then voted on by the public before the event.

In other news, around two thirds of the items in the free battle pass from Halo Infinite allow players to switch out the highly controversial weekly challenges that reward XP. Fans have taken to the Halo reddit to voice their concerns over the current Beta as well.
