Gamers' Choice Awards

The 2018 Gamers' Choice Awards, the first video game awards show to be shown on a broadcast network, has just wrapped on CBS.

The show aired at 5 p.m. ET (2 p.m. PT), and ran for about an hour. Unlike The Game Awards, which streamed online on Thursday, the CBS awards show appears to be based mainly on fan voting. The show does not appear to be streaming online immediately after its initial broadcast, but we'll update this post should that change.

Disclosure: CBS is CNET's parent company, and CNET earns commissions from the services featured on this page.

Categories and a sampling of the nominees are below, and winners are in bold. For categories where we don't have the nominees, we are listing the winners at the end. Several winner announcements came on the awards show's Twitter account.
