God Of War Ragnarök was voted the Game of the Year in the PlayStation Blog's annual awards, and while it might seem like a shoo-in, the game faced some fierce competition.


Over the course of this year, we've been treated to exclusives like Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, Sifu, Horizon Forbidden West, Gran Turismo 7, Rollerdrome, Ghostwire: Tokyo, The Last of Us Part I and Stray. All lined up like that, it's crystal clear that players have been spoiled, and that Xbox hasn't delivered on that front for its own customers. That'll change in 2023, fortunately, but it certainly has been a very strong year for those who own a PlayStation.

Horizon Forbidden West and Stray snagged spots in our own top ten for their originality and gorgeous graphics, but we can confirm that we agree wholeheartedly with the PlayStation community for bestowing the crown to Ragnarök.

Check out this truly bizarre skit featuring Ben Stiller as the God of War dispensing parenting advice to parents at a loss with their own offspring:



The results were decided by the PlayStation player base who voted in 16 categories from Game of the Year, to Graphical Showcase, to Best Accessibility Features, and more. We've got the round up here for you:

  • Best New Character - Thor, God of War Ragnarök
  • Best Story - God of War Ragnarök
  • PlayStation Graphical Showcase - God of War Ragnarök
  • Best Art Direction - God of War Ragnarök
  • Best Audio Design - God of War Ragnarök
  • Soundtrack of the Year - God of War Ragnarök
  • Best Accessibility Features - God of War Ragnarök
  • Best Use of DualSense - God of War Ragnarök
  • Best Multiplayer Experience - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II
  • Best Ongoing Game - Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0
  • Best Sports Game - Gran Turismo 7
  • Best Independent Game of the Year - Stray
  • Best Re-Release - Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection
  • PS4 Game of the Year - God of War Ragnarök
  • PS5 Game of the Year - God of War Ragnarök
  • PlayStation Game of 2023 and Beyond - Hogwarts Legacy

So it's safe to say that player were pleased with their time with Ragnarök. Regarding the final category, honorable mentions lie with Resident Evil 4, Marvel's Wolverine and Assassin's Creed Mirage. Perhaps next year's awards will be an even fiercer fight for the top spot.
