Over the years, The Game Awards has grown in popularity steadily. The ceremony began with only 1.9 million units in its first edition. However, in just seven years this event has become one of the most important of the year, mainly due to its announcements and revelations, which have taken up most of the presentation.

For better and for worse, The Game Awards is more of an event focused on new announcements, reveals, and commercials. In this way, the award ceremony has been reduced to a small amount of the presentation.
