‘God of War Ragnarök’ leads 2022 Game Awards nominations: Full list

Less than a week after its release, Santa Monica Studio’s God of War Ragnarok leads the 2022 Game Awards nominations with 10.

On Monday, Game Awards host and creator Geoff Keighley announced this year’s nominees via livestream on YouTube, Twitter and other social media platforms. God of War Ragnarök nominations include Game of the Year, Game Directing, Narrative, and Art Directing.

FromSoftware’s “Elden Ring” and Guerrilla’s “Horizon Forbidden West” followed with seven nominations each, including Game of the Year.

A Plague Tale: Requiem, Stray, and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 are the other contenders for the top honor.

The plethora of nominations for God of War Ragnarök follows in the wake of its debut on November 9th on PlayStation. Its predecessor, God of War, was named Game of the Year in 2018. The God of War series has also won awards for game directing and action/adventure gaming.

Gaming titles took center stage at the Game Awards, but this year the ceremony will also recognize Hollywood’s gaming-inspired projects. Among the nominees in the new adaptation category are Sony’s Uncharted, Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and the Netflix series Arcane and Cyberpunk: Edgerunners.

Gamers can vote on the Game Awards website. Keighley will serve as executive producer and host of the awards show, which will return December 8 at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles. The ceremony will be streamed live on YouTube, Twitch and other digital platforms. Fans can also watch the show live in IMAX theaters.
