The Game Awards viewership was up by 83% and had 8.3 million concurrent viewers

Geoff Keighley has announced on Twitter that last week’s The Game Awards were a roaring success which is good news for the video game industry in general. While feelings towards the content in the event are usually mixed, the stats released by Keighley bodes well for future presentations. The Game Awards viewership was up by 83% this year, which is an incredible achievement for Geoff and the team. It looks like The Game Awards isn’t going anywhere.


  1. Tbh it could be the best thing ever and I still wouldn’t watch it as I’m just not interested in award ceremonies anymore.

  2. Most of those were probably just people wanting to see the Smash reveal, and since we wouldn’t know when in the show it would happen, they had to watch from the start to make sure they didn’t miss it.

  3. I’ve only seen this year’s and last year’s ceremonies, and I feel they actually improved a little. The show still has to improve a lot with the categories and the way winners are announced, but at least it is improving

    1. They only improved a little, I still felt the boring-ness there but they added more musical performances so it wasn’t as boring I feel. As long as bias is not involved in the awards, I think that they will definitely do better.

  4. I didn’t think the awards were bad. They are just like the regular ARD shows for Music and Movies and stuff. However, just like those shows, this one is rigged too.

    No way in hell should Animal Crossing have lost to the Last of Us Part II. That was so lame… I love TLOU, but AC was such an important part of 2020 and it was the hottest system seller of the year. Way more people played it than TLOU.

    Makes no sense to me. 🤷🏼‍♂️
