Elden Ring Nominated for Game of the Year 2022 Game Awards

Elden Ring joins God of War and others as the 2022 Game Awards nominees.

The 2022 Game Award nominees were just announced, and one of our favorite titles was mentioned for several categories. We’re excited for FromSoftware and the other developers mentioned as nominees. Along with God of War Ragnarok, which snagged an impressive 10 nominations, Elden Ring was nominated for not only Game of the Year, but 7 awards in total.

Elden Ring Nomination Categories

Elden Ring, the action RPG by FromSoftware and Bandai Namco, has been nominated for several categories. These include:

  • Best Art Direction
  • Best Score and Music
  • Best Audio Design
  • Best Narrative
  • Best RPG
  • Best Game Direction
  • Game of the Year, 2022

We’re thrilled to see FromSoftware’s efforts to create an expansive and dangerous world rewarded. Hopefully, the DLC we keep hearing whispers of finally materializes, but even without it, the game is a strong contender. 

We can still remember the child-like wonder of exploring the Lands Between for the first time. That and checking in with our friends daily to see what new items and spells had been uncovered. Very few games encourage discovery to the degree Elden Ring did, and that was just one part of its appeal. Combined with the wonderful characters and exciting combat, Elden Ring remains a likely choice, even against God of War: Ragnarok
