Last year I thought we had seen the peak of viewership for #thegameawards and spent most of this year worrying how we could hopefully keep viewership in the same range for 2018. I never thought we’d see our audience more than double year over year. Thank you for all your support and interest in what we are doing. This has to be the top right? My team and I are truly grateful for this opportunity and more than anything, the positive sentiment and buzz which matters even more than the number of streams. Still, #thegameawards is now one of the biggest streams ever on @twitch with a peak concurrency of 1.13 million viewers. See you in 2019!
This year, for the first time, we let a reporter behind the scenes for the making of The Game Awards over the past 6 months. You can read the Polygon story in my bio. This is a great pic of Kimmie H. Kim, our fantastic show runner/EP and me in rehearsals (plus Dave our lighting director ). We will be sharing #thegameawards viewership results tomorrow.
It’s almost time for the show this year. This one has taken a lot out of me for a bunch of reasons, but I’m glad to finally be here and hope I do a good job for everyone tonight. Enjoy the show! #thegameawards
Devil about to be triggered 👿 #thegameawards

This is *actual* news and I can’t believe it. Big day for Geoffs and Giraffes around the world. Toys R Us is now Geoffrey’s Toy Box. #blessed
See you in December!
Beautiful morning runs in Cap d’Antibes France 🇫🇷 this week for @cannes_lions
First E3 panel - Westworld and its video game inspirations.
Starting to announce lots of the special guests joining us for @e3expo Coliseum next week! I’m lucky enough to get to pick projects that help advance the understanding and appreciation of gaming, and next week we are thrilled to welcome these special guests from popular culture to celebrate what games mean to them! And there’s no better place to do it than at E3. The team has been working hard on this for the past 5 months, over 35 panels on the main stage! Hope to see you there.
See you on December 6 for @thegameawards
My Windows desktop knows me so well. #yayGiraffes 🦒
