Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will win Best Family Game (this is my opinion). I say that because out of all of the ones mentioned, MK8D is the only one for all ages (rated E) and is multiplayer. The others are okay to be family games, but I am leaning towards MK8D winning due to being the most family friendly game. The best though? Maybe. But, I am going to cheer for MK8D.

There's something so strange seeing a final fantasy game going up against a south park game.

I think that GOTY will remain a joke award for joke people but I'll entertain myself anyway.

I really don't think Odyssey will beat BoTW or Horizon: Zero Dawn.

I'm really hoping Cuphead gets best art direction.

Mobile gaming has been down the *bleep*ter recently, so I'm not surprised something like Super Mario Run has made the list.

I didn't know there's another nonMario nonNintendo version of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe being nominated for Best Family Game.

Man, who cares about strategy in a strategy game anymore?

Rooting for Odyssey even though I haven't played it yet and am completely Mario-biased.

pretty sure fire emblem is a waifu simulator instead of a strategy game, that's why it's not nominated.
