Elden Ring Leaves GoW Ragnarok in Dust; GotY Trophies Handed Out

Most of the game of the year titles have been awarded. It seems that the industry media and gamers were almost unanimous in their choice.

Elden Ring or God of War: Ragnarok? For a long time we have been wondering which of these two productions will win the most titles of game of the year 2022. Most gaming websites have already made their choice. It turns out that one title was no competition for the other or - even less - for the rest. Which one?

In fact, the unrivaled winner was Elden Ring. The work of FromSoftware garnered a total of 145 game of the year titles - 136 from industry media and 9 from players (readers). Second in the classification, God of War: Ragnarok won only 26 of them (24 from the press, 2 from the community).

The data was collected by ResetEra forum users in this thread. Then an Internet user nicknamed BrickArts295 compiled them into a summary. Initially, the website that was to be used for their publication was - like in previous years - but as it is currently unavailable, a forum thread had to suffice.

A total of 193 Game of the Year 2022 titles were listed together (the website shows an incorrect number of 187). Elden Ring and God of War: Ragnarok raked in a total of 171 of them. What games were selected in the remaining 22 cases? Their list can be found below. Keep in mind that in the coming days it may be supplemented by additional items. However, the victory of FromSoftware's work cannot be threatened by anything - its advantage is simply too big
