The 2022 Game Awards are now over. “Elden Ring,” a favorite going into the ceremony, took home the coveted game of the year award. “God of War Ragnarok,” another heavy hitter, otherwise swept the show with six wins, the most of any nominee.
The ceremony, an hours-long celebration of video games and their surrounding communities, also serves as a promotional vehicle for upcoming games: Much of the event’s runtime is devoted to trailer reveals and game announcements. Video game industry figures including developers, esports athletes, actors, executives and streamers attend the event as guests, presenters and nominees.
