While these are not definitive for “Game of The Year” standings, it indeed suggests Cyberpunk 2077 is the strongest contender so far.

Also of particular note is the “Heart of Gaming Award,” a special jury prize awarded to Super Crowd Entertainment for their efforts in scratching together an MMO-type interface for virtual attendees to experience the array of indie games being put on at Gamescom, an impressive feat given the tight timeframe involved.

Hopefully, next year’s event will be just as exciting without all the stress of a pandemic behind it.
