The Game Awards 2022: here are the official nominations

They are already causing discussion The Game Awards 2022 nominationsextremely commercial nominations – more than usual – which in fact cut out from many categories different video games that probably deserved more.

Leading the nominations there is God of War Ragnarok with its 10 nominationsin an event that seems to have been tailored around the latest effort by Santa Monica Studio, but there was no shortage of 7 nominations for both Elden Ring and Horizon Forbidden West.
