The glory of Elden Ring does not seem ready to stop. After winning the title of best game of the year 2022 at the Game Awards, the FromSoftware juggernaut continues to win numerous awards. This triumphant advance dethroned at the same time, The Last of Us Part II, which held until now the greatest number of awards.
What’s the new Elden Ring record? How do you get those numbers that reward video games?
What is the new Elden Ring record?
Elden Ring has officially passed the most awards, currently with 324 wins. This famous FromSoftware production thus exceeds The Last of Us Part II which only had 322 in 2020. A glory that many consider amply deserved, for this open game where exploration and curiosity are not only at the heart of the adventure , but also rewarded. Considered a breath of fresh air in the video game landscape, Elden Ring has made an impression and its influence does not seem to be over. To get an idea, Witcher 3 got 281 awards in 2015.
It is the users of the ResetEra site who compile the total number of awards granted to a game, worldwide. Regularly updated, only the relevant statistics are recorded. Media awards are collected, but also public polls where players were able to vote for their game of the year. It is thus possible to analyze a little more the victory of Elden Ring: 281 prizes were awarded to it by the media this year, and 43 by the public. This remains a landslide victory compared to the 74 awards from God of War: Ragnarok and 4 from Horizon: Forbidden West. These figures are data that are not extremely precise, but remain a very good indicator of the success of a game.
