Neogaf GOTY 2022 |OT| Results thread

Unfortunately the sub-categories (sound design, etc) aren't voted very carefully, and seem like a place for everyone to vote their overall favorites again. I think it would be nice next year to allow each person to only pick one category for a particular game, forcing more variety.

But I'm happy that Elden Ring is on top, well deserved.

Or put in some land mine categories like worst game to see if people are even looking when line voting.
 
I can't take this seriously lol, why is God of war in every category? Even the gamepass one?! Y'all suck.
Game that deserves a sequel lmao, of course it's getting a sequel jfc. :pie_roffles:

This might be worse than TGAs.
So you cant take it serious that Elden Ring is in every category, except for Gamepass and Sportgames?
Let the butthurt flow trough you, time to give it a rest.
GoW deserve the praise it gets, its a great game.

My wife is playing through now and she called out the voice specifically as one of her favorite parts so far. I think it was Roderika specifically but the blacksmith also has a top-tier actor. Hell that opening cinematic still gets me hyped as fuck to play just because the VO is so damn good.
Don’t forget the legendary line:
”- Put these foolish ambitions to rest”
😁👍

Were there no games released in 2022? Or was the pool just that small? They're all the same games for the most part, lol.

Also why is Cyberpunk even on that list? It was released in 2020.

She beat Morgott on her second try. She's all paranoid she'll get wrecked but she's been killing it so far.
Margit? Or Morgott?
Kinda the same but in different parts of the game. Impressive either way!
I had serious issues with Margit on my first playthrough with melee and strength focus, struggled for about 3 hours. Upside, that’s when I learned how to play the game, went through most of the mechanics available at that point. Godrick was similar. I wouldn’t say the game was easy after that but those two bosses were transformative, they really pushed me to refine my playstyle and I didn’t struggle the same way with later bosses. Except Elden Beast which I absolutely hate and still don’t have a fireproof strategy for.

Margit. Yeah I got them confused because I recently fought Morgott in my game.

Yeah, I've been giving her lots of tips. ER IMO is the easiest of the Souls games.
I’ve only played 3, DeS, BB, ER, and yeah ER is easier. But mostly because I don’t feel like you hit a wall and have to cheese bosses or grind the same area to level up until it’s boring. There is always something else to do. And it’s not as harsh when it comes to the respawn points.

I don't know how you direct a voice actor to come across like they've actually lived through a fantasy apocalypse, but FROM's VA's are exactly how I'd expect that sort of person to sound. Incredible, immersive work.
 


Thank you to the people involved in this project.

Good lord. Has the bar for greatness truly fallen so low that these games are the winners of 2022? Some of those games are inferior to their own predecessors while others were just kind of..."okay".
I think for their respective genres, Elden Ring and Stray were mostly fine at least. But I'd rather be playing something else from the same genres from a bygone era.

Well some good news and some bad news. I'll let you read in whatever order you see fit.

Good News​

You can still play those games.

Bad News​

Those games didn't release in 2022 so they are ineligible.

how God of war Ragnarok has a better soundtracks than Elden Ring? something smell fishy
Gow:R has some great themes such as this one -






and blood upon the snow, but no other masterpiece
On Elden Ring every 3rd main/secret boss is a masterpiece.
Love them both and they both deserves 10/10 but guys ...

GoW, Elden Ring and Horizon Forbidden West really dominated 2022

Also it's great to see Callisto and Sifu nominated for some things 🥳
 
Very happy to see Xenoblade Chronicles 3 up there. Should've been in the top UI design though.

KoF XV deserves to be the best fighting game, I'm always having a blast whenever I play it.

Elden Ring of course is the absolute GOTY 👑
