The UploadVR Best VR Of 2019 Awards - Winners

The UploadVR Best VR Of 2019 Awards - Winners

UPDATE: As of 01/02/2020 we’ve announced our winners for every category! If you want to see the discussion and debate, which was recorded and streamed live, you can find that here:

Original: We’ve had a wild year in 2019 for the VR/AR industry.

From the releases of big games that blew us away to some of the most impressive hardware we’ve seen yet finally release, there have been lots and lots of highs to celebrate. This year we even hosted the first-ever VR-focused E3 Show with our E3 VR Showcase that amassed over 16,000 people watching it live and well over 100,000 views across all formats and re-streams to date.

So, without further ado, this is our full list of nominees for each of the respective categories. We’ll announce winners later this week during our latest episode of The VR Download podcast, which is filmed from inside of our VR studio, live, with viewer feedback and then reposted as an audio podcast later.

All entries are listed alphabetically in the corresponding category with the first entry used as reference for the category’s corresponding photo (unless it’s been used already in which case we’ll use the next entry as the photo). When we announce winners we will just go back in here and update the list like we did last year. You can already see our reasoning for every nominee for best overall in 2019 if you’d like.
