Geoff Keighley will be on the stage of the award ceremony this week, not only as a presenter, but also as a producer of the Game Awards 2019. In a Reddit Q & A session, fans have now addressed the potential conflict of interest that could arise from the nomination of Death Stranding and Geoff Keighley's cameo appearance in the game. The moderator commented on the topic in detail.
A few days before the start of the Game Awards 2019, presenter and producer Geoff Keighley in one Reddit Q & A session answered several questions from the fans. Among other things, it was about his cameo appearance in Death Stranding and whether this is not a conflict of interest with the award ceremony. The title of Kojima Productions is nominated in numerous categories this year. Moderator Geoff Keighley answered this question in great detail and also went back to the voting system and the nominations of the jury.
"The integrity of the show and the prizes is the most important thing of all, I do not vote for the nominees or the winners – that's what a jury of 80 global media outlets listed on our website makes."
The producer does not want to make a secret, however, that he is friends with several people in the industry. In some cases Geoff Keighley is said to have been personally blamed by other developers if their game did not win. He also commented on this in the Reddit AMA.
"To be honest, sometimes it can be very lonely trying to make everyone happy, but I have to stick to the rules and the voting and just hope that if I want to create something lasting, I will be so ethically correct and act fairly as possible. "
Players will be able to watch the Game Awards live on December 13, 2019 at 2:30 am German time. During the broadcast, it will not only show new trailers to well-known titles, but also ten new games.
