The Game Awards was founded in 2014 by media entrepreneur Geoff Keighley, who also hosts and produces the program. The sixth annual Game Awards was run and won today with social media going nuts with updates, game trailers and congratulatory posts as we saw winners crowned in more than 25 different categories. In between the award categories, there were a heap of game announcements, world premiers of new games coming in 2020 and one of the bigger announcements of the day, the Xbox Series X coming next year!!
