Game News God of War Ragnarok, the PS5 and PS4 exclusive is ignored by Sony during its awards ceremony, here are the rewarded games instead!

Less than a week before the Game Awards ceremony, we are impatiently waiting to know the name of the game that we will have judged to be the most significant of this year 2022. From right to left on the web, we are starting to take sides by electing their “game of the year” or by awarding prizes on the sidelines of the final consecration. This is what Sony has just done, very recently, with the organization of the PlayStation Partner Awards. Many will regret the absence of God of War Ragnarök, but there are two good reasons for this.

Summary

  • Elden Ring, God of War, Horizon 2, … The Cornelian choice of the game of the year!
  • Sony rewards Japan’s greatest hits on PS5 and PS4

Elden Ring, God of War, Horizon 2, … The Cornelian choice of the game of the year!

Rarely have the Game Awards promised us such a duel ! In the middle of November, the master of ceremonies for this major end-of-year event, Geoff Keighley, revealed to us the names of the six games that will fight for the mention of “game of the year 2022”. While there are excellent names in the list, there is a fight that unleashes all the passions within the different communities, namely the clash between Elden Ringreleased at the end of February, and God of War: Ragnarokreleased during the first third of November. In short, the choice could not be more difficult and even within the video game industry or the specialized press, opinions differ.

On the one hand, we do not hesitate for a single second to support the latest masterful creation from the Japanese studio FromSoftware, as well as to attribute to it, already, an exceptional reward. On the sidelines of the annual coronation, Elden Ring therefore seemed to leave with a head start, but it was without counting on the rise of God of War: Ragnarok who, it seems, found favor with the editors of the famous American magazine TIME. And besides, when we see the final selection, we say to ourselves that the top 3 must have been talked about a lot because the creation of FromSoftware does not even appear there! Between these two huge representatives of the AAA category, the competition is very tight and the suspense risks being untenable until the end.

Sony rewards Japan’s greatest hits on PS5 and PS4

On the Japanese archipelago, Sony and PlayStation perpetuate the tradition by organizing the award ceremony of the PlayStation Partner Awards. However, the latest hit from Santa Monica Studio does not appear once! Players can be reassured, Sony and PlayStation have not shunned the presence of Kratos and Atreus out of love: in reality, there are two explanations for this. The first being that this award ceremony primarily concerns Asian creations ; the second is justified by the fact that Sony and PlayStation are focusing on a very specific fiscal year, in this case the one that runs from October 2021 to September 2022i.e. an interval from which is absent God of War: Ragnarok !

Now that the details have been made, we can get to the heart of the matter and take an interest in the games that have been rewarded at the PlayStation Partner Awards. Let’s save the best for last and mention titles that have had the honor of receiving a Partner Awardi.e. those that have obtained significant results: we find Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles, Final Fantasy XIV, Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation 2, Resident Evil Village or Yu Gi Oh ! Master Dueling. Two other categories are also highlighted during this ceremony: the Special Award and the Users’ Choice Award. The first was assigned to Apex Legendsthe Western game that generated the strongest enthusiasm among the Asian public, while the second was awarded to straythe Montpellier game where you play as a cat. The highlight of the show comes, meanwhile, to the two games that received the Grand Award and which are none other than Genshin Impact… and Elden Ring ! A choice that can be explained by their great commercial success on PlayStation consoles.
