The Tribeca Festival Has Revealed Its 9 Exciting Game Choices For 2022 3

This is the second year the Tribeca Festival has revealed choices for the annual Tribeca Games Award and in its sophomore year, the nine selections made will vie for the prestigious award.

The annual Tribeca Festival is mainly known for the film aspect of media, and a celebration ensues every year based on which forms of media stand out among the rest, for excellence in storytelling and other categories media has to offer. The most notable part about the Tribeca Games Award, is that it honours games that are yet to be released for the award, as last year’s award winner was the critically acclaimed NORCO — which received a resounding 88 on Metacritic — back in March.
