Xbox Encourages Fans To Vote For First-Party Games At TGA 2023

The Game Awards 2023 is upon us, and votes for the show's 'Players' Voice' award are now open. Unlike the rest of TGA's awards, this one is a purely-fan voted category - and Xbox is pushing its audience to vote for some first-party favourites.

Among the 30-strong shortlist are four Xbox-owned titles; Minecraft, Diablo 4, Hi-Fi RUSH and Starfield. Diablo's inclusion is a bit cheeky given Xbox didn't own Blizzard when it released, but still, they're including it so we shall too!

If you're wondering how Minecraft has made the list, the Players' Voice award doesn't just include titles released in 2023. The current list of 30 games features other older releases such as No Man's Sky, Apex Legends and GTA Online - with a focus on live service titles that've received plenty of updates this year.

If you'd like to go vote for any of these Xbox games, this round of voting is open from now through 6pm PT / 9pm ET on November 29th - and you can currently choose 10 titles before the vote moves on to round two. There's some stiff competition on this list, but it'd be nice to see some Xbox first-party games progress to the next round!

Is there anything missing from this list that you think should be in there? Leave your thoughts down below.
