The Game Awards is a place where the act of cringe and activist pretending to be interested in the medium that is gaming gather together in one place. Well, the 2019 edition of The Game Awards is set to kick-off on December 12th.
I’m not sure how many self-proclaimed homosexuals and furries will attempt to top each other at this year’s Game Awards, but if last year was any indication, get ready for more cringe and current year talking points.
Anyway, the meme man himself, Geoff Keighley, took to Twitter to announce that the annual games event is due out near the mid-part of December. Here’s the tweet in question detailing the start date:

If you can’t load the tweet, here’s the full version in written form:
Over the past eight months, I’ve quietly traveled the world to talk with the creators who inspire me. When we sit down, I ask a simple question. “Why do you keep creating?” No matter what happens in our lives or in the world, the act of creation is a deeply personal, spiritual, and fulfilling pursuit, filled with sacrifice and challenge, but fueled by the opportunity for impact. At their best, games make us feel alive.
Today, I am happy to share the date for The Game Awards. Thursday, December 12. This year’s show will celebrate the act of creation, as I turn the stage over to a group of visionary teams selected to share their new projects with you.
I’m honored to be given this platform to celebrate our shared passion on a global scale. You’ll hear much more in the coming weeks about our plans for the fifth anniversary show. It will be very special.
– Geoff Keighley
This year’s theme is all about “Creation,” so get ready for pretentious talk and the like. Additionally, the creation talk will center around games that inspire Keighley himself — so take that for what it is.
Also, Keighley will turn the stage over to a group of “visionary” people who will share their new projects to the world. Again, get ready for the typical current year talking points.
As mentioned above, The Game Awards 2019 is set to go live on December 12th. You can learn more about this event by paying axs.com a visit.
