The Game Awards 2020 has ended, but we’re delivering a recap of the biggest announcements (so many game reveals) and embedding the full video replay in case you want the rewatch to see which games won. The Game of the Year winner got the GotY award is below, too.
The only way to watch The Game Awards this year was through the live stream video we embedded below because the 2020 presentation didn’t happen in person.
We followed the Geoff Keighley-hosted award show – now in its seventh year. Our live updates are offering a recap in case you missed the start of the live stream.

As you can see above, The Game Awards is more than ‘the Oscars for video games’. It’s like the Oscars combined with a game trailers marathon.
The real reason to watch The Game Awards is to see the epic game (and sometimes hardware) reveals that happen in between the award segments. It makes TGAs must-see TV – or must-live-stream online video.
Watch The Game Awards full video replay
You don’t have to travel far to watch The Game Awards. In fact, we added the video right here so that you can watch the awards and world premier game trailers without ever having to leave this page.
The Game Awards is free to watch (and rewatch) and was streamed on 45 platforms. This includes YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Facebook Live, Steam, Oculus Venues and even TikTokLive this year. Unlike the old Spike TV awards, ‘how to watch The Game Awards’ is a much easier question to answer: pretty much anywhere.
