Elden Ring wins Game of the Year at the Golden Joystick Awards 2022 | Trending

Bandai Namco’s Elden Ring i Worship of the Lamb tops the list of winners of the 2022 Golden Joystick Awards, the world’s longest-running video game awards event, organized by video game publisher Future. The award is a People’s Choice awards ceremony, meaning it determines the category winners entirely by public vote.

while Elden Ring had the most impact, taking home four different awards, the category winners, on the other hand, were quite varied. Worship of the Lamb was awarded as the best indie game, Metal: Hellsinger brought out the best audio, Vampire survivors won the Breakthrough Award, and newcomer Manon Gage won Best Actress for her portrayal of Marissa Marcel in Immortality – a well-deserved win, if you ask us.

Regarding platform-specific award winners, Pokémon Arceus Legends took out the Nintendo Game of the Year award, feline adventure diverted took out the PlayStation Award, Obisdian’s multiplayer survival game Grounded took out the Xbox award and Return to Monkey Island won the PC award.
