The Game Awards 2022 are fast approaching, and today the nominations were officially announced. While we still have to see who actually wins, it may be God of War Ragnarok’s night, as Sony’s game collected 10 nominations. By comparison, the game many considered the favorite for most of the year, Elden Ring, only picked up 7 noms. Horizon Forbidden West also picked up 7 nominations and fourth place actually went to the cuddly cat indie Stray with 6 noms. You can check out the full list of nominees below (or you can check out the video below if you’d prefer them to come out of Geoff Keighley’s beaming face).

The Game Awards will be broadcast on December 8. Who do you think will be the big winner? Any particularly egregious nomination snubs (keep in mind, early December is the cut-off for the 2022 awards)?
