Where to watch The Game Awards 2017

It's awards season, baby.

It's that time of the year where we start to rank our favourite games of the year. Finder's rankings will start rolling out this week, but in the meantime, there's a little presentation officially known as The Game Awards. That's right, THE Game Awards. If you're looking to live stream the awards, you can do so through Twitch.

If you're streaming from Australia, the stream will kick off at 12:30 pm Thursday 7 December.

It's an exciting time of the year for gamers, developers and publishers. A moment to appreciate the year gone by, paying credit to the most outstanding experiences of the year. And what a year to celebrate. Nintendo is back in form, releasing not one but two games that not only qualify for game of the year but the best games of all time, on a console that's punching well above its weight.

PlayStation scored some stunning exclusives too. Persona 5 stunned players with its edgy and all-too-real story and Guerilla's Horizon Zero Dawn would have been an easy win on any year that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild wasn't released.

For Xbox players, the pickings were relatively and expectedly slim, but still, a little indie known as Cuphead managed to brutally punish players while still leaving a stupid smile on their faces.

We'll have our top picks for 2017 published in the coming weeks, but for now, enjoy The Game Awards.
