The Witcher 3 Leads This Year's Game Awards Nominations
However, Metacritic and the Game Awards jury do agree that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one helluva title.
The 2015 Game Awards nominations have been revealed and CD Projekt Red's acclaimed action/RPG leads the way with 7 total nominations, including a nod for overall Game of the Year. The other GotY candidates include the aforementioned Fallout 4, along with Bloodborne, Super Mario Maker and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. MGSV is second to The Witcher 3 with 5 nominations.
The Witcher 3 also nabbed nominations for Best Narrative, Best Art Direction, Best Score/Soundtrack, Best Performance, and Best Role-Playing Game, while CD Projekt Red was nominated for Developer of the Year. If you're wondering, the nominees were chosen by a jury of 32 international media members and to be considered, a game had to have a release date prior to November 24.

One personal note: The Witcher 3 can only qualify if we're allowed to view the game as it is now, as opposed to the mess it was at launch. Otherwise, it's not in the running.
