The Game Awards announce their full list of nominees – and voting is now open

THE Game Awards, also known as The Oscars of Gaming, have released their list of nominees for 2022.

Despite only being out a week at the time, God of War Ragnarök picked up 10 nominations, including Game of the Year.

Stray was a surprise hit.

Other games that did well include Horizon Forbidden West with seven nominations, and Elden Ring and Stray with six nominations each.

Horizon’s success surprised fans as it launched just a week before Elden Ring, which soon caught players’ attention.

While it did well both critically and commercially, the hype earlier in the year was mostly centered on FromSoftware’s title.

Another surprise hit was Stray. Stray also did well this year, but it’s unusual for an indie game to be nominated for Game of the Year.

This year, too, there were some notable snubs.

Big games like Bayonetta 3, Pokémon Legends: Arceus, and Triangle Strategy all walked away with just one nomination each.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 received four nominations, despite a lukewarm response to the multiplayer.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 received three nominations including Game of the Year, which is unusual for a Japanese game.

The only Japanese game to take home the grand prize is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in 2017.

Tunic, another indie hit, has also made waves, earning three nominations alongside Neon White, Sifu and Immortality.

Despite critical criticism, Overwatch 2 also received a nomination.

The biggest surprise among all the nominations was that Nibellion received a nomination for Content Creator of the Year.

Nibellion was a Twitter account that used to tweet major gaming news as it happened.

They have since left Twitter and this nomination is meant to be a thank you for all their hard work in keeping fans updated.
