Elden Ring wins GOTY 2022 at The Game Awards

Elden Ring wins GOTY 2022 at The Game Awards

It's the news we've all been waiting for. Elden Ring has officially been crowed as 2022's Game of the Year at The Game Awards.

Anyone else still awake and watching The Game Awards? Join me in a moment of silence for those of us here at GAMINGbible HQ that have sacrificed an entire night’s sleep to bring you the best reveals of the event. There’s been plenty to get excited about. We’ve seen Star Wars Jedi: Survivor gameplay, Hideo Kojima announced Death Stranding 2, plus there’s even a Hellboy game on the way.

We’ve finally made it to the end though and by that, I don’t mean it’s almost time for me to go to bed (although that is the case). We’ve reached the coveted Game of the Year award. There are six nominees: A Plague Tale: Requiem, Elden Ring, God of War Ragnarök, Horizon Forbidden West, Stray, and Xenoblade Chronicles 3. We all suspected that the real battle would be between Elden Ring and God of War Ragnarök - and we were right. It’s official, Elden Ring has officially taken home the title.

The win is well deserved. Take a look at our favourite Elden Ring wins and fails below.

That’s right, Elden Ring is your 2022 Game of the Year, just as we suspected. Elden Ring managed to sweep up several awards throughout the evening including best direction, best art direction, and best role-playing game.

Elden Ring is so much more than a game. It’s a cultural behemoth and quite literally took over the world when it launched earlier this year. The Lands Between are rich and bountiful. It may be a game that tests your patience, but there’s immense thrill to be found in every success and discovery. FromSoftware excelled in creating an unmatched in-game universe and are truly deserving of this incredible accolade.

Taking to the stage, Elden Ring’s developers thanked fans for their support of the game, in addition to George R.R. Martin for creating the mythos. They also seemed to tease that they had “more to do” with Elden Ring. What an end to a jam-packed night.
