Game Awards 2022 nominations: ‘God of War Ragnarok’ and others dominates

The nominations for The Game Awards 2022, which celebrate the year’s most cutting-edge voices in gaming, have been announced.

“God of War Ragnarok” leads the pack with ten nominations, including Game of the Year and Best Game Direction. Diversity The highly anticipated game was praised by a recent review, calling it a “10 out of 10, checking every box with a combination of pulse-pounding action, humor and character development that will stick with players long after completing the campaign.”

“Ragnarok” is followed by “Elden Ring” and “Horizon Forbidden West,” which each garnered seven nods, including Game of the Year. Sony Interactive Entertainment is the most nominated publisher for its games with 20 nominations, followed by Annapurna Interactive and Nintendo with 11 nominations each.

Fans can submit their votes through official online voting on The Game Awards website using the official TGA voting bot and on the official Discord server for The Game Awards until December 7th.

The Game Awards will stream free on December 8 on over 40 digital video networks including Twitch, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram Live and TikTok Live.
