Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is one of the five games that are nominated for Game of the Year by The Game Awards 2015. The other nominees are Bloodborne, Fallout 4, Super Mario Maker and The Witcher 3. The show will be held at the beginning of next month, and today the nominees were announced. The winners will be chosen by a jury. For a full list of all the categories and nominees, go here.
Nominees for The Game Awards 2015 are selected by a jury of 32 international media. In some cases, the jury is provided advanced review code of upcoming games in order to meet the Game Awards 2015 judging deadlines. Games must have been commercially released by Tuesday, November 24 to be eligible for awards. eSports nominees were voted on by an advisory panel consisting of eSports media and sites.
Aside from Game of the Year, MGSV has also been nominated for the following categories: best score / soundtrack, best action / adventure game and best art direction. Furthermore, for the category ‘developer of the year’, the now disbanded Kojima Productions is one of the nominees.
MGSV has some stiff competition, so it being nominated for multiple categories is already a neat accomplishment. We’ll have to wait a few weeks to see what awards it will win.
