Even though the Game Awards 2023 won’t take place until December 7th, it has already been revealed what games have been nominated for the narrative category, and many gamers have been taken by surprise at the fact that certain games have been ignored that deserve to be in this category.

At the moment, there have been five different games that have been nominated for the Best Narrative Game Awards 2023. All five of these games have been taken from completely different genres and all have their merits, but some gamers feel there were better options within this year that could have been nominated.

However, the five different games that have been nominated are Alan Wake 2, Cyberpunk 2077, Final Fantasy XVI, Baldur’s Gate 3, and finally Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Each of these games has its own merits for being nominated in this category, as each game has been received very well within the gaming community.

Even though The Legend Of Zelda: TOTK has been nominated for other categories, gamers still believe that it could have been nominated for the best narrative category. However, some feel that the story within The Legend Of Zelda: TOTK wasn’t as up to par as games like Alan Wake 2 and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.

Another game that many gamers considered worthy of nomination for the best narrative category is GhostRunner 2, which carries on the story from the first game. Since this franchise has a rather large occult following, many gamers feel that it could have received a lot more attention from the Game Awards 2023, but unfortunately, that isn’t the case.

At the moment, the nominations are final and are unlikely to change, as the Game Awards 2023 is unlikely to change its decision. Even though this decision may not change, gamers are still happy with the choices that have been made, as the games that have been nominated are still very high-tier games.
