The nominees for The Game Awards 2022 have been revealed and it looks like the recently released God of War Ragnarok has made it in and has been nominated for several categories, including Game of the Year alongside the likes of Elden Ring, A Plague Tale Requiem, and Xenoblade Chronicles 3. 2022 has been a rather a stacked year for gaming fans, from fantastic indie titles such as tray to massive blockbuster releases like Elden Ring and Horizon Forbidden West.

The year kicked off in great fashion with the likes of Elden Ring dominating the GOTY conversation at the start of the year. Games like Xenoblade Chronicles 3 made one heck of an arrival and inserted itself into the conversation in a big way. The most recent of the nominees is God of War Ragnarok, who appears to be a strong favorite alongside Elden Ring for the coveted Game of the Year.

The race for the Best Indie Game is also hotly contested as this year has seen several massive hits such as Neon White, Cult of the Lamb, Stray, and Tunic. All categories can be voted on through the official The Game Awards site, linked here.
