2021 SXSW Gaming Awards Public Voting

Thanks for helping choose the games that will take home top honors at the 2021 SXSW Gaming Awards!

Public Voting Now Closed


Since 2014, the SXSW Gaming Awards showcase the very best titles and creators of the year. Every year we nominate five titles in each of our categories, and ask you to help us select those most worthy to be honored in this year’s ceremony — powered by IGN and sponsored by community collaboration platform Discord — broadcast live as part of SXSW Online.

This year we’ve integrated the Gamer’s Voice Award into the SXSW Gaming awards — choose your favorite from ten of the year’s finest indie games for the Indie Game of the Year Award!

Award winners will be determined by a weighted total between staff and advisory board input and public votes. The polls closed on Tuesday, February 23 at 11:59pm CT.
