Community GOTY 2022 Winners

It's another wonderful year for games!

No Caption Provided

Hey everyone! These are the results of the community GOTY - the results of which (resultingly) have been resulted below. This year, 712 of you submitted a top ten list, for a total of 5854 votes (not everyone always puts in ten games, which is fine!) on 500 different games. Wow! Amazing!

It's another year with a blowout winner, as Elden Ring wins going away, with almost triple the weighted points of the #2 game, Vampire Survivors. Tunic, GOW: Ragnarok, and everyone's favorite sleeper hiut, Horizon: Forbidden West, also round out the top ten. I don't think it was necessarily an amazing year for games as we're still seeing the ramifications of COVID on development, but I still had fun with a few of these games!

I apologize for the delay in publishing this! It honestly slipped my mind as January obviously had a lot of stuff going on there with a variety of emergencies and still adapting to the new company. My bad!

As per usual, we don't always separate out expansions or new ports or games leaving early access in our wiki so if you see stuff like The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe you can assume that it's referring to a recent release.
