'God of War Ragnarok' bagged the most wins with six, but it was 'Elden Ring' that took home Game of the Year

The Game Awards on Friday, December 9, Philippine time, returned to celebrate and honor the year’s best videogames. This year saw the clash between two AAA juggernauts in God of War Ragnarok and Elden Ring

While God of War Ragnarok bagged the most wins with six, including Best Performance for Kratos himself Christopher Judge, it was Elden Ring who took home the biggest prize of the night, Game of the Year. The FromSoftware-developed open-world RPG also won Best Game Direction, Best Art Direction and Best RPG. 

For those unfamiliar, the winners of The Game Awards are decided by a mix of votes from the community and gaming publications from around the world. Rappler is among the selected publications that vote every year. 

Apart from the winners, the show hosted a number of bombshell announcements, highlighted by the surprise reveals of Death Stranding 2, Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon, and Hades 2, along with never-before-seen gameplay footage of Tekken 8 and Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
