Elden Ring takes home the Game of the Year award at The Game Awards 2022

Elden Ring, the latest game by FromSoftware, is the winner of arguably the most prestigious award in all of gaming.

Elden Ring was nominated for the GOTY award along with the likes of God of War: Ragnarok, Stray, A Plague Tale: Requiem, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and Horizon Forbidden West. 

As expected, it was a two-way race between God of War: Ragnarok and Elden Ring.

Heading into the closing moments of The Game Awards, most were expecting God of War: Ragnarok to win after it had bagged six awards already earlier in the show.

Ultimately, Elden Ring added a fourth award to its name and a third GOTY award overall. 

Elden Ring is expected to get a lot more post-launch content in the months to come, starting with the free Coliseum update.
