God of War Ragnarök and Elden Ring are the two biggest cartridges of 2022. And even in 2023, Kratos continues to go up against Elden Ring.
Les D.I.C.E. Awards
On February 23, the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences (AIAS) will be in the spotlight of the industry. For good reason, they are organizing the 26ᵉ edition of the DICE Awards. This ceremony takes place every year in the United States and settles in Las Vegas. For the 2023 edition, 5 games are nominated in the “Game of the Year” category. In a list unveiled on January 12, the industry’s most beautiful gems according to AIAS are: Elden Ring, God of War Ragnarök, Horizon Forbidden West, Stray and Vampire Survivors. This ceremony was originally intended to reward works that have contributed to advancing the video game industry.
Of the 22 categories listed at the DICE Awards, the sequel to Kratos’ adventures in Midgard is the most present release of 2022 With 12 nominations, she does better than Elden Ring and her 7 appearances. Regarding these, the two games find themselves in direct confrontation on 6 occasions, in particular in the categories “Exceptional achievement in a scenario” and “Exceptional achievement in Game Design”. Among the other Game of the Year contenders, all have already won at least one such award this year through other ceremonies.
A battle on the roof of the industry
As you are used to, different organizations have been delivering their opinions on the video game industry for several weeks. GOTY here, game of the year there… In short, the war is raging between the biggest titles of 2022. At the heart of this typhoon of awards, a battle between David and Goliath is observed. On the one hand, Sony Santa Monica’s AAA God of War Raganrök presented itself as the big name to dethrone at the start of the calendar year. But from February a more than serious challenger has come to overthrow the hierarchy initially planned. With Elden Ring, FromSoftware has moved out of the Souls niche and opened up to the general public.
In the end, the accounts were not in favor of the standard bearer of PlayStation. Although particularly acclaimed by critics, it lags behind Elden Ring as the game that has received the “Game of the Year” award the most times. According to an unofficial account made by enthusiasts on the Resetera forum, Elden Ring has no less than 365 awards considering it the best title of 2022. So, yes, it’s huge! To give an idea, this number quite simply makes the adventure imagined by FromSoftware THE most awarded game in the history of the tenth art. Just that… Behind him, we find God of War Ragnarök who still collects 88 similar “trophies”. Out of 502 prices listed, the two works won no less than 453, or 90%.
