Video Game Award Nominations 2015

Welcome to the annual Gamerheadquarters Video Game Awards where we kick it off tonight with our nominations for many categories in video games from the best titles of the year. First off I should mention that we have a Fan Favorite Award so you can vote for that below from the links provided or just continue taking a look down the page at the nominations. This year we've worked hard to expand the categories to cover the platforms and what's generally changed within the gaming industry so we hope this does a great job of representing the games industry of 2015. The full awards with winners will go live on December 17, 2015 featuring a very fancy awards site of which I promise will be slick and the best games of the year.
