Fans have cast over three million votes across 18 categories, with three more awards - Best Performer, Breakthrough Award, and Critics Choice Award - decided by a panel of journalists from sites including PC Gamer and GamesRadar, as well as magazines Edge, Play, and RetroGamer. To help work our way through the winners, this year's award ceremony will be presented by voice actors extraordinaire Troy Baker and Laura Bailey. Both of their CVs span the industry, but the pair are best known collectively as the voices of Joel and Abby in The Last of Us Part II.
