Since the inexorable progression of time is making fun of us all, would you mind taking a moment to vote on which games were good this year? I know I would.
2022 will be a big year in video game history, with a boatload of games that have the potential to become lifelong experiences for geeks and career-defining releases for developers. We had games like Elden Ring, Total War: Warhammer 3, Uncharted, Persona 5 Royal, and God of War, and that’s just in the first few months of AAA releases. Even the smaller games like Return to Monkey Island, Immortality, Rollerdrome, NORCO, Hardspace: Shipbreaker, Rogue Legacy 2, HYPER DEMON…
I could go on! But you are here to vote. You missed the deadline for the Golden Joystick Awards—you can find the winners on GamesRadar (opens in new tab)– but there are a few others to vote for.
- The Game Awards are coming up soon and the deadline to vote is Wednesday, December 7 at 6pm PT. You can vote for The Game Awards here. (opens in new tab) Public votes there count for 10% of the total score for a game.
- The Steam Prices (opens in new tab) now takes nominations as part of the fall sale of 2022 (opens in new tab), and has its usual array of quirky categories in addition to the open Game of the Year call. Fire up your Steam client or head over to their website to learn more about that.
- Voting is now available at the Esports Awards, including a vote for Esports Game of the Year. You find that out esportsawards.com. (opens in new tab)
- ModDB is hosting their Mod of the Year awards, but they’re not live yet. You can see that progress on ModDB. (opens in new tab)
There are of course other award ceremonies, but not the ones you can vote for. Like the DICE awards, which will take place in end of February 2023 (opens in new tab) and don’t even have nominees yet.
But PC Gamer, can I vote for your year-end awards?
I’m they can’t even vote for it.
