Naughty Dog’s acclaimed action-horror sequel The Last of Us Part II leads the pack with 13 nominations, the most ever awarded to a single game. It beats last year’s joint record holders Death Stranding and Control, both of which received 11 nods.

Japan-set samurai game Ghost of Tsushima is the next most nominated game, with 10 nominations, while indie roguelike Hades, available on the Nintendo Switch, garnered eight.
