Tonight's 2014 Game Awards promises it will be a celebration of all the best that videogames have to offer. And even if you don't care about that, it will no doubt feature a number of new game reveals and trailers as well. Luckily for you, you can catch the whole thing live, right here.

The Game Awards arose from the ashes of the Spike TV Video Game Awards—better known as the VGAs—that ended their run last year. The new show will be hosted by Geoff Keighley, who's also producing the program, and unlike its predecessor it will not be broadcast on conventional television networks: It will be screened exclusively online.

Winners have been selected by a jury made up of 28 members of the media, including our very own US EIC, Evan Lahti. There are no platform-specific categories this year; winners will instead be chosen from various genre-specific categories, as well as for best soundtrack, best online experience, developer of the year, "Games for Change," and five fan-chosen categories.

Enjoy the show! (And don't miss the Steam sale.)

Andy has been gaming on PCs from the very beginning, starting as a youngster with text adventures and primitive action games on a cassette-based TRS80. From there he graduated to the glory days of Sierra Online adventures and Microprose sims, ran a local BBS, learned how to build PCs, and developed a longstanding love of RPGs, immersive sims, and shooters. He began writing videogame news in 2007 for The Escapist and somehow managed to avoid getting fired until 2014, when he joined the storied ranks of PC Gamer. He covers all aspects of the industry, from new game announcements and patch notes to legal disputes, Twitch beefs, esports, and Henry Cavill. Lots of Henry Cavill.
