Boston (February 19, 2019) – Who says video game fans have to be left out of the decision-making process during video game awards season? War of Awards® is an annual campaign and live event encouraging developers, fans, press, and anarchists to have a voice in video game awards such as Game of The Year.


Fans can vote for their favorite award-winning titles online at, and those attending PAX East 2019 can determine the final results by joining the live caucus to cast the competition’s deciding votes. This year’s show will take place on March 30th at 7:30 p.m. in the Dragonfly Theatre (room 253) inside the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Those not attending in person can watch the caucus on the official PAX East 2019 live stream.


“War of Awards is a boisterous spectacle filled with lively debate, campaigning and shouting,” said Thomas Allen, Executive Director at NAVGTR Corp. “The real fun is in seeing all the innovative ways people pitch their games to the caucus, and the ensuing chaos that comes when voting starts."


Contenders for War of Awards can only qualify by first winning a competitive award from a recognized major organization in a similar category.


Winners have yet to be announced from NAVGTR, BAFTA, SXSW, IGF, GDC, and GANG.

New nominees are drafted into War of Awards as winners from the awards circuit become known by March 21.


The nominees locked in so far for the Game of the Year debate include the following titles and additional potential nominees are coming soon.


  • Fortnite (Golden Joysticks)
  • God of War (Game Awards, DICE)
  • Coming Soon (NAVGTR, BAFTA, SXSW, IGF, GDC, and Indie Prize)
