    Some rather heavy hitters, I think the top two will be Spider man and RDR 2.

    I just want Octopath Traveler to win the art category, that game really had it going in that department.

    God of War, Spiderman and RDR 2 will clear up on anything they can. I think RDR 2 will get GOTY just because of its popularity and the others will get the other awards.
