THE Game Awards — the equivalent to the Oscars for games — will introduce a new category this year for gaming adaptations.
The ninth award ceremony is set to take place on Thursday, Desember 8, 2022, as hosted by Geoff Keighley, the awards creator.
Alongside the usual categories such as Best Game Direction, Best Narrative, Best Mobile Game, and Game of the Year, a new category has been revealed.
From this year, Best Adaptation will become an award for the best adaptation of a game into another entertainment medium.
While this is usually TV or film, the producers announced it will also include other less popular media such as comic books or podcasts.
Gaming adaptations, particularly in film, used to be thought of as low-grade entertainment.
Egter, as gaming becomes mainstream, gaming adaptations are becoming more popular.
Henry Cavill’s take on Geralt from Game of the Year winning The Witcher 3 is a prime example.
Speaking about the new award, Keighley said: “The Best Adaptation Award is a way for the gaming industry and its fans to tip its hat to creative work.
'[Work] that authentically adapts and often adds lore and context to our favourite gaming franchises.

“With so many game-inspired projects across entertainment, the time is right to honour excellence in adapting video game worlds to other mediums.”
Gaming adaptations have featured heavily at The Game Awards in the past, often being the place for gaming-based films and shows to debut their trailers.
Laas jaar, Jim Carrey and Ben Schwartz revealed a new trailer for Sonic 2 which came out this year.
Paramount’s Halo TV show also made its debut at the gaming awards show.
Nominees are yet to be announced, but big budget films such as Uncharted are sure to make an appearance.
The Game Awards is usually streamed across free online platforms such as YouTube and Twitch, but this year it will also be featured in selected IMAX theatres.
