The event goes on for a couple of hours and features a lot of hilarious moments. Hopefully, this year there will be plenty of surprises along those lines. It's the unscripted moments that make The Game Awards shine in my opinion. Since it's at the Microsoft Theater, let's hope that some new Xbox games are also announced, or maybe what Project Scarlett, Microsoft's upcoming console that's four times as powerful as the Xbox One X, looks like. Only time will tell, but be sure to tune in.
