Genshin Impact nominated for best mobile game at The Game Awards 2021

Genshin Impact has recently been nominated for the “Best Mobile Game” category at The Game Awards 2021.

A nomination isn’t the same as winning an award, but Genshin Impact fans can vote for it to help its chances. Winners will be announced on December 9, 2021 and there’s a possibility that Genshin Impact will add another accolade to its repertoire.

There are several categories for The Game Awards 2021, but only two main ones involving Genshin Impact. The first one is “Best Mobile Game.” It’s competing against:

  • Fantasian
  • League of Legends: Wild Rift
  • Marvel Future Revolution
  • Pokemon Unite

In order to vote for it, players must head to

They can either select “Start Voting” or “View All Categories” to begin the process. Regardless, fans will see Genshin Impact as an option for the “Best Mobile Game.”

Gamers will be required to sign in to The Game Awards’ website if they want to vote. One can use their Twitter, Facebook, Google or Twitch accounts to log in. The process is seamless and shouldn’t take up much of a player’s time.

Once they’re logged in, they can vote for Genshin Impact.

The second category that Genshin Impact was nominated for is “Best Ongoing Game.” It’s competing against:

  • Apex Legends
  • Final Fantasy XIV Online
  • Fortnite
  • Call of Duty: Warzone

The process for voting is the same and the player uses the same website to search for it. It’s the ninth category, whereas the “Best Mobile Game” is the eleventh category. If players only care about the Genshin nominees and nothing else, they can click on “view all categories” on the homepage.

From there, type Genshin Impact into the search bar to see both “Best Ongoing” and “Best Mobile Game.”
