Game Awards are more than just “Oscars for video games,” we learned. The real reason to watch The Game Awards is to watch the epic game (and sometimes the devices) that reveal what happens between the award categories. It makes TGAs a must-watch TV – or live video streaming over the Internet.
When will the game prizes start? How can you watch? We have all of these answers now that it’s 10 December and broadcasts only a few hours away.

You don’t have to travel far to see the in-game rewards. In fact, we have added a live broadcast video here so you can see the world’s first awards and game announcements without having to leave this page.
The Game Awards are free to watch and will air on 45 platforms around the world. This includes YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Facebook Live, Steam, Oculus Venues, and even TikTokLive this year. Unlike the old Spike TV Awards, “How to Watch The Game Awards” is a much easier question to answer: pretty much anywhere.
The show will be broadcast live from Los Angeles, London and Tokyo with strict safety protocols, according to the official Game Awards website. But there won’t be an audience in Los Angeles this time. Everyone will see from the house.
Game Prize time – and here’s when it started
Official Game Awards kicked off at 7 PM EST / 4 PM PST, Dec 10, which was 12 AM GMT / 11 AM EST, Dec 11. They are broadcast simultaneously around the world for free, so you can watch them no matter where you are.
The Game Awards Live Stream included a small introductory show that starts 30 minutes before the main event. That was 6:30 PM EST / 3:30 PM PDT / 11:30 PM GMT so the less glamorous art awards were handed out at that time.

we will see New Super Smash Bros Ultimate fighters? Our first tease of Spider-Man 3 Movie? Halo Infinite game trailer? How about a first look at Uncharted 5, Sure PS5 Order Vendor (This is not what we can find PS5 restocking In any case)? We’ll know in a few hours when The Game Awards will start.
