New York Videogame Critics Circle Announces 7th Annual New York Game Award Nominees and Honors Bethesda’s Todd Howard with Legend Award

The New York Videogame Critics Circle will host the seventh annual New York Game Awards, honoring the top in video gaming on January 24 at Manhattan’s Abrons Playhouse. From best VR game to best indie game, and best game music to best remake, the New York Game Awards nominations all build up to the Big Apple Award for Best Game of the Year, all to be announced at the awards ceremony hosted by Emmy-Award winning writers from The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

In addition to today’s award nominations announcement, the New York Game Awards is proud to give its Andrew Yoon Legend Award to Todd Howard, the brilliant director and executive producer of Bethesda Game Studios. He’ll receive the Legend Award in-person at the New York Game Awards ceremony. Todd Howard’s landmark work on the expansive, long-running Fallout and Elder Scrolls series proves not only his own creativity and work ethic, but also that of his ardent teams at Bethesda.
