The Game Awards 2022 winners list: 'Elden Ring' receives the … – Los Angeles Times

The Game Awards returned to Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater on Thursday night for its first in-person event since the COVID pandemic. Basking in the cheers of the gaming community was FromSoftware’s “Elden Ring,” which won the top prize — game of the year.
“We have faced so many difficulties while developing this game … so I’m really relieved,” said director Hidetaka Miyazaki. “I haven’t made up my mind to create even more interesting games than this one. As for ‘Elden Ring,’ we still have more things we want to do, so getting this GOTY award really, really encourages us.”
Heading into the ceremony, “Elden Ring” received seven nominations. “Elden Ring” also won prizes for art direction, role-playing and direction.
FromSoftware last won game of the year in 2019 for “Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.”

Video game company FromSoftware teamed up with “Game of Thrones” writer George R. R. Martin to create “Elden Ring,” a work of art with an atmosphere and open world that outpaces anything it has ever released before.

For the Game Awards creator and host Geoff Keighley, Thursday’s show was a welcome return to ceremony’s usual form, with notable gaming figures — Xbox’s Phil Spencer and previous Game Awards honorees Hideo Kojima, and Josef Fares — in attendance.
Of course, this year also touted something new for the ceremony — its inaugural best adaptation category.

The Geoff Keighley-hosted Game Awards will host a night of music at the Hollywood Bowl in 2023. The concert will celebrate 10 years of Game Awards.

Ahead of the show, Keighley told The Times that 2022 is an optimal time to start celebrating “authentic” and fresh takes on gaming content.
“[The category] just speaks to how gaming is taking over pop culture,” he said in November on a video call. “Part of the mission of our show is to celebrate the power of this medium as the largest, most dominant form of entertainment. So I think this is just another example of it’s continued proliferation.”

PlayStation’s ‘God of War Ragnarök’ tops this year’s Game Awards nominations list. The nominees were announced Monday.

Netflix’s “Arcane,” an animated take on the world of Riot’s “League of Legends,” took home the first best adaptation award.
The Game Awards’ in-person comeback also saw prizes for “Stray,” “Bayonetta 3” and “God of War Ragnarök,” which won six categories. See the full list of the 2022 Game Awards winners below:
