A forthcoming awards ceremony called The Game Awards 2022 Nominees & Winner Predictions will recognize the top video games of that year. On December 8, 2022, the Microsoft Theater near Los Angeles will host the event, which will be hosted by Geoff Keighley, the originator, and presenter of The Game Awards. Sydnee Goodman will serve as the host of the preshow ceremony. Along with an added IMAX experience, the event would be live broadcast across over 40 digital platforms.
For media that has been adapted from video games, the program created a brand-new Best Adaptation award. God of War Ragnarök is the most nominated film this year with 10, followed by Horizon Forbidden West and Elden Ring with seven each, and Stray with six.
Game Awards 2022 Nominees Overview
Geoff Keighley, a Canadian games writer, will host and produce The Game Awards in 2022, much as in previous years. Along with Kimmie Kim, he was back as an executive producer, while Richard Preuss and LeRoy Bennett were back in their roles as director & creative director, respectively. The 30-minute preshow will once again be hosted by Sydnee Goodman. On December 8, 2022, the presentation will be held in the Microsoft Theater throughout Los Angeles. It will be live broadcast on more than 40 websites and social media networks, including Facebook, TikTok, Youtube, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram Live.
He tried to strike a balance between announcements and awards, observing that around 75% of the public preferred announcements while the industry as a whole valued award more. The Game Awards: The IMAX Experience, a live public event that will feature an exclusive gameplay series of the upcoming game Dead Space, was created by the show in collaboration with IMAX. It will be broadcast in 40 locations across the United States and Canada, where tickets went on sale on November 16.
Future Class, a group of 50 individuals from throughout the video game industry that best represents its future, will make its third appearance at The Game Awards in 2022. Nominations were taken in September and October. The 2022 show included the Best Adaptation Award to recognize material that has been adapted into video games, such as movies, TV series, books, comic books, or podcasts. Keighley believed it was appropriate to recognize adaptations given their growing popularity. In addition to introducing voting and guest appearances in the show’s Discord server, The Game Awards teamed with Discord to offer Best Community Support.
Game Awards 2022 Nominees
The candidates were revealed on November 14, 2022. Any game that was made available for purchase by the general public before or on November 18, 2022, qualified. A jury panel made up of representatives from more than 100 media outlets from across the world, including specialist juries for the esports, accessibility, and adaption awards, including 117 media outlets for the general nominations, 18 outlets for accessibility, plus 16 outlets for esports.
The jury decides the winners (90%) and the public votes (10%), which are accepted through the official website & Discord servers until December 7. The Players’ Voice awards stand out since it is entirely public, and voting for it began on November 28. The winner will be selected following three rounds of voting. In the initial week, 35 million vote totals had been cast, more than double the amount during the same time period the year before and surpassing the total votes cast over the course of the three-week count in 2021, according to Keighley. Public voting increased by 42 percent during the initial 24 hours compared to the prior year.
