With The Game Awards 2023 now squarely in the rear view mirror, it's time to reflect on what was shown during Geoff Keighley's big end of year bash. Criticisms of the format and actual award presentations aside, the event did give us some significant game reveals.

Last week, we asked the Push Square community to vote on the best announcements or reveals from The Game Awards 2023 — and the results are in! Below, you'll find the top ten showings, based on a total of 3,388 votes.

10. Metaphor: ReFantazio (Release Window Trailer) - 131 votes (4%)
9. Exodus (Reveal Trailer) - 134 votes (4%)
8. Light No Fire (Reveal Trailer) - 172 votes (5%)
7. Jurassic Park: Survival (Reveal Trailer) - 213 votes (6%)
6. Monster Hunter Wilds (Reveal Trailer) - 223 votes (7%)

5. Final Fantasy 16 (DLC Reveal Trailer) - 247 votes (7%)

Final Fantasy 16

Square Enix had said that details on Final Fantasy 16's paid DLC would drop before the end of 2023, and so all eyes were on The Game Awards in anticipation. Thankfully, the team delivered, and we got a rather rousing reveal trailer. The footage looked great, but what really won people over was the immediate release of the first expansion, Echoes of the Fallen. A very effective shadow drop, and The Rising Tide will tempt players back in Spring 2024.

4. Black Myth: Wukong (Release Date Trailer) - 302 votes (9%)

Black Myth Wukong

Black Myth: Wukong has been hovering around for what feels like an age. Everything we've seen of the project has looked extremely promising, but developer Game Science has always refused to pencil in a release date. That is, until this latest trailer. Yep, Wukong still looks stunning, and now we know when it's coming. Whether the game actually sticks to August 2024, we'll have to wait and see, but for now, let's just pretend that it's 100% happening. Finally!

3. Rise of the Ronin (Release Date Trailer) - 326 votes (10%)

Rise of the Ronin

We'd argue Rise of the Ronin was one of the standout games at this year's show. PlayStation fans have been waiting to hear more about this Team Ninja title for a while, and so an action-packed gameplay trailer accompanied by a release date was a surefire win. What's more, said release date is actually a lot sooner than people were predicting; Rise of the Ronin's out in March — on the same day as Dragon's Dogma 2. Mercy!

2. SEGA Projects (Reveal Trailer) - 327 votes (10%)


This was a weird announcement, wasn't it? But there's no question that it got people hyped. In case you missed it, SEGA brought an eye-popping trailer to The Game Awards 2023, in which it showcased a bunch of in-development projects that will revive a selection of beloved but dormant properties. That includes Jet Set Radio, Crazy Taxi, Streets of Rage, Golden Axe, and Shinobi. This trailer was the definition of nostalgia overload, and we can't wait for SEGA to drop some additional details.

1. God of War Ragnarok: Valhalla (Reveal Trailer) - 503 votes (15%)

God of War Ragnarok Valhalla

Proving once again that you can't argue with free DLC, God of War Ragnarok: Valhalla had the best showing at The Game Awards 2023 (according to the Push Square community). Whenever that PlayStation Studios logo hits the screen, you can guarantee people will lose their minds, and while this combat-focused, roguelite expansion may not be the DLC that a lot of people wanted from Ragnarok, it was still one heck of a surprise. Even better, it's out on the 12th December. An easy win, when you piece it all together.
