Elden Ring took home the biggest prize at The Game Awards 2022 held Thursday night in Los Angeles, over its chief rival God of War Ragnarök, though the latter PlayStation exclusive triumphed over the former FromSoftware title in total number of wins (six vs four). While God of War Ragnarök dominated the audio, narrative, and performance categories — Christopher Judge was given the trophy by none other than Al Pacino — Elden Ring swept best game and art direction. Naturally, both games won in their respective genre categories as well (best role-playing and action/adventure).

Elsewhere at The Game Awards 2022, Stray picked up best indie game, Marvel Snap took best mobile game, Bayonetta 3 was awarded best action game, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope in the best simulation and strategy section, and Gran Turismo 7 as the best of the sports and racing lot. Thanks to the last of them, PlayStation Studios — officially known as Sony Interactive Entertainment — emerged as the winner amongst publishers (seven awards). Bandai Namco is tied at second with four, thanks entirely to Elden Ring, alongside Nintendo, which won best action, family, and multiplayer categories.
