It's that time of year again where you can now vote for your favourite games. Yes, this year's Game Awards have arrived. Once again, Nintendo releases dominate the family category along with Ubisoft's Starlink: Battle for Atlas and Team 17's Overcooked 2. Square Enix's Switch exclusive Octopath Traveler is also up for three awards including best role-playing game.

Celeste is the sole indie representative in the Game of the Year category, up against five industry heavy-hitters. Epic's Fortnite is in the running for best ongoing game, multiplayer and eSports title, and Capcom's Mega Man 11 is striving to be the best action release.

Apart from Celeste, there's plenty of other indie representation with Dead Cells, Into the Breach and The Messenger nominated across multiple categories. Yoku's Island Express could even be awarded the best debut indie title. On the fighting front, there's Dragon Ball FighterZ and BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. And in terms of strategy, The Banner Saga 3 and Valkyria Chronicles 4 are up for nomination. Of course, FIFA 19 is hoping to be awarded the best sports game.

According to the official website, more than 100 games and individuals have been nominated this year. If you would like to vote, you'll need to login. You're permitted to vote once every 24 hours. Winners will be announced on 6th December, live at the 2018 Game Awards.
