Red Dead Redemption 2 Leads Game Developers Choice Awards Nominations

God of War and Spider-Man tie for second most nominations.

The 19th Annual Game Developers Choice Awards will be held at GDC again, where leaders in the video game industry have chosen what they consider some of the best games in the medium from last year. Leading the pack is none other than Red Dead Redemption 2.

Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2 racked up the most nominations of any game with seven total, including nominations for Game of the Year, audio, and narrative. God of War and Spider-Man both received six nominations, while indie hits Celeste and Return of the Obra Dinn round out the Game of the Year finalists.
