This morning, the National Academy of Video Game Trade Reviewers (NAVGTR) announced the nominees for their 18th annual NAVGTR Awards. We have the full list for you here, but the short versions is that God Of War is leading the pack with 22 nominations, with Marvel’s Spider-Man at 21 and Detroit: Become Human with 16. There are a ton of indie games in the mix as well, but a lot of them received four or fewer nominations. The indie game with the most is Dead Cells with five. The winners will be announced March 13th, and they will be represented at the War of Awards ceremony at PAX East 2019 in Boston a few weeks later.
