Gamescom Awards Applications Open, Include Best Streamer Category

Which game will win Best of Gamescom this year?

Applications for the Gamescom 2018 awards are now open until August 1, and there are a bunch of new categories including ‘Best Streamer’. Registered exhibitors can apply across 29 categories, and this year the winners, determined by an international jury, will be announced on the first day of Gamescom (much like E3, a jury will see the nominated games two weeks prior). The genre category groups are Best Action Game, Best DLC, Best Casual Game, Best Family Game, Best Hardware, Best Multiplayer Game, Best Puzzle Game, Best Racing Game, Best RPG, Best Sim, Best Social/Online Game, Best Sports Game, Best Strategy Game, and Best VR Game.

Platform categories include Best Xbox One Game, Best Nintendo Switch Game, Best PS4 Game, Best Mobile Game, and Best PC Game. There is also the coveted Best of Gamescom Award, which was picked up last year by Super Mario Odyssey. Consumers can also vote for Best Consumer Experience, Best Queue-Entertainment, Best Streamer/Let’s Player, and Gamescom’s ‘Most Wanted’ consumer award.

Earlier on in the month, it was announced that Gamescom had brought Spain on as a partner country. What are you excited for at this year’s Gamescom? Let us know in the comments!
