Keighley took to YouTube today to announce the nominees for all of The Game Awards' categories this year, and it seems to be a packed year for awards.

"PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" was the only other 2017 debutant named for consideration, with "Grand Theft Auto Online", "Warframe", "Rainbow Six: Siege" and "Overwatch" also given nods. The honor belongs instead to Zelda, Mario, PUBG, Horizon, and Persona 5. The categories move beyond games themselves and into the realm of eSports and the gaming personalities, with categories for both Best eSports Player and Trending Gamer.

The Game Awards will take place on December 7 at 5:30pm PT.
