Video games are getting a new awards show, courtesy of Geoff Keighley. The longtime producer of Spike TV's Video Game Awards announced a new event called The Game Awards this morning.
You can even purchase tickets to the event, which go on sale tomorrow.
Variety broke news of The Game Awards, which makes it sound awfully similar to what's been produced in previous years on Spike TV. In essence, it's less gaming's equivalent of the Oscars and more of an opportunity for the industry to hand out awards while simultaneously advertising what's coming next.
As Variety put it:
"The 'Game Awards' also will be produced as an awards show that hypes new games with a first look a trailers and other content, along with musical performances, appearances by game developers, eSports players and online content creators."
