The next 9 will be held The Game Awards 2021 in a face-to-face event that will surely have many personalities from the video game industry. There will be the ‘game of the year’ – GOTY in its acronym in English – and, at the moment, it is debated whether Forza Horizon 5 should be nominated or not.
It’s hard to get to the point of ‘where did the debate start‘on social media, but apparently it all started when the Twitter account XboxStudio asked the question if Forza Horizon 5 should win the famous GOTY.
That tweet was quoted several times and with various arguments: ‘it would be the lowest point in the history of the award‘,’there are many better video games and genres than car games‘,’nowadays they call anything GOTY‘,’you can’t repeat the case of Overwatch‘ and else.
On the other hand, there are also those who defend Forza Horizon 5 and other games to earn this Game of the Year recognition. The discussion became so open that, thanks to that, it is possible to find the word GOTY as a trend in social networks.
We also recommend: It is not yet out and developer will give the GOTY to God of War: Ragnarok
Will Forza Horizon 5 be nominated for the 2021 game?
If we focus only on the discussion around the The Game AwardsWe can start because any title can be nominated for Game of the Year, even though it came out 2 years ago. That’s why we had Among us as a 2022 laptop.
Now, in the precise case of Forza Horizon 5 is that the specialized press put it in the category of game of the year for when the voting begins. It is a clear and simple exercise, but it takes time to carry out.
There is also a deadline release date to give to the nominees. For example, by its release date, Halo: Infinite could not be nominated for GOTY. Just that happened to Cyberpunk 2077 and could hardly be considered for the 2021 awards.
Finally, fans can also vote, so not everything is in the hands of the press, the players themselves will be able to decide whether Forza Horizon 5 it is a worthy deserving of the recognition of game of the year or not.
