On Monday, November 14, Geoff Keighley announced the official nominations for The Game Awards 2022. Games from various genres were nominated for a number of awards, with Elden Ring, God of War Ragnarok, and Horizon Forbidden West featuring heavily throughout.
The Game Awards is a yearly event filled with glitz and glamor that not only awards games for their achievements but also showcases new titles that players can hope to see in the near future. This year's event will be held in Los Angeles at the Microsoft Theater on December 8.
The official nominations were revealed via a live stream hosted by Keighley. Players and fans from around the world can visit the official Game Awards website and cast their votes in various categories.
With 10 in total, God of War Ragnarok has the most nominations in this year's event, including Game of the Year, Best Game Direction, Best Narrative, and Best Action/Adventure. The title was one of the most anticipated games of 2022.
Santa Monica Studio's sequel to their 2018 title, God of War, shifted the franchise's focus to the Norse pantheon. It was a critical success and is widely considered one of the best video games ever made.
A week after its release, it is clear that the sequel has managed to yet again capture the imagination of fans and critics alike. Sportskeeda's very own God of Ragnarok review scored the title 9.5, noting that "a solid case could be made for this being Game of the Year for 2022."
