My picks:

Spoiler
Game of The Year: Super Mario Odyssey (Only one of these games I've played is fucking PUBG and there is no way that game should be anywhere near this award. SMO seems to be universally acclaimed with both critics and fans so I'm defaulting to that)
Best Game Direction: Dunno
Best Narrative: Dunno, Wolfenstein II is just a rehash of the first as far as narrative goes
Best Art Direction: Destiny 2 (One of the few things Bungie has been getting right since the franchise started)
Best Score/Music: Destiny 2
Best Audio Design: Destiny 2
Best Performance: Brian Bloom (Dunno about the others but Laura Bailey is Laura Bailey, good enough to not be shit but nothing outstanding)
Games for Impact: Don't care
Best Ongoing Game: Only two of these games came out this year and one of them is an early access game while the other hasn't been out long enough to make a good judgement.
Best Mobile Game: Don't care
Best Handheld Game: Don't care
Best VR/AR Game: Don't care
Best Action Game: Destiny 2
Best Action/Adventure Game: Dunno
Best Role Playing Game: South Park (only one I've played and it's great)
Best Fighting Game: Don't care
Best Family Game: Haven't played any
Best Strategy Game XCOM 2: War of the Chosen (Technically not a game, but has enough content to be and is absolutely brilliant)
Best Sports/Racing Game: Don't care
Best Multiplayer: Destiny 2
Most Anticipated Game: Red Dead Redemption II
Best Independent Game: Cuphead
Best Student Game: Dunno
Trending Gamer: Flee
Best Esports Game: Don't care
Best Debut Indie Game: Cuphead

Didn't vote for GOTY, Best Direction, Narrative, Best Performance, Ongoing Games, Games for Impact, Mobile games, VR games, Action/Adventure, RPG, Fighting, Strategy, Sports/Racing, Most anticipated, student, trending gamer, esports drivel

Best art direction - Destiny 2, would probably be Cuphead if I played it
Best soundtrack - I put Destiny 2, but would have voted Sonic Mania if it was an option
Best audio design - RE7
Best Handheld game - Samus Returns
Best action - Destiny 2
Best family - Sonic Mania
Best multiplayer - Destiny 2
Best indie - Cuphead

I wish I could have voted for Sonic Mania as Game of the Year honestly

There are a lot good games this year

Spoiler
Game of The Year: Persona 5, even though Super Mario Odyssey probably will win and for good reasons, not only because fandom

Best Game Direction: Super Mario Odyssey, Zelda also has good chances

Best Narrative: NieR: Automata

Best Art Direction Either Persona 5 or Cuphead

Best Score/Music: Persona 5, although NieR and Cuphead did a god job too

Best Audio Design: I don`t know, might be Hellblade

Best Performance: I don`t know

Games for Impact: Hellblade, I guess, though I didn`t know Night in the Woods got so popular. And probably Life is Strange will win anyway.

Best Ongoing Game: Warframe

Best Mobile Game: I dunno, I would play Fire Emblem, my mom would play Super Mario

Best Handheld Game: I don`t know Metroid: Samus Returns probably

Best VR/AR Game: Superhot

Best Action Game: Cuphead > Nioh = Destiny 2 = Wolfestein 2 >>>>>>> Prey. If only Bethesda didn`t fucked up with Prey 2 and didn`t took name "Prey" as game name

Best Action/Adventure Game: My pick is Uncharted, but all those are good, except Assasins Creed, I don`t know about it anymore

Best Role Playing Game: All those are good, I'll go with NieR, Persona 5 doesn`t have good route implementation.

Best Fighting Game: Super Sm- Tekken 7

Best Family Game: One with word "Mario" in it

Best Strategy Game: XCOM 2: War of the Chosen

Best Sports/Racing Game: Forza Motorsport 7

Best Multiplayer: There is no Warframe, wtf? Maybe it`s because Warframe wasn`t released this year. I guess Destiny 2 then or Splatoon.

Most Anticipated Game: Red Dead Redemption II or Monster Hunter

Best Independent Game: I don`t know, I guess Cuphead, although Hellblade and Pyre are good as well

Best Student Game: Dunno

Trending Gamer: Videogame journalist, which couldn`t pass tutorial and thus buffed popularity of Cuphead even more Flee, obviously

Best Esports Game: I don`t want to play those ever again know

Best Debut Indie Game: Hollow Knight >= Cuphead > Mr. Shifty > Everything else. Both Hollow Knight and Cuphead have some issues, Hollow Knight has some optimization issues and Cuphead has issues with random generated difficulty, you can clearly tell that on Expert difficulty, on others it wouldn`t make much difference.

Best Chinese Game: ICEY

It's pretty fucking sad that those are the only games we can choose to be "most anticipated" for. Honestly at this point it's just Shinobi Striker and Dragon Ball Fighterz.

shit like the nasuverse are too obscure for western media moguls in the vidya industry to take notice of, even if it's mobile game entry is one of the most popular in japan and is growing in the west. I'm honestly surprised Nier made it in there at all, but i guess automata made enough of a splash to force them to recognize it.
