There's no telling when or if video games will ever be taken as seriously as film or television, but The Game Awards is the first video game awards show that actually treats games with some degree of reverence. Produced and hosted by games journalist Geoff Keighley, the fourth edition of The Game Awards will air on Thursday night at 8:30 PM ET, with tons of awards to hand out and several exciting reveals set to take place throughout the night.
If you've never tuned in for the ceremony before, you should know that The Game Awards are similar to other awards shows, with well-known members from the industry presenting trophies to the development teams behind the year's best games. There will also be a live performance by Phoenix at some point in the show.
