God of War Ragnarok Surpasses Elden Ring: Once again, awards season has arrived, and God of War Ragnarok has surpassed Elden Ring to become the most honoured video game of 2022. By the numbers kept by BrickArts295, Elden Ring is currently the leading contender for Game of the Year 2022, surpassing God of War Ragnarok.
While there are still a few to be added, the disparity between the number of awards given to both games is so great that it seems unlikely that God of War: Ragnarok will even the score, let alone overtake it.
According to the current tally, Elden Ring is the victor, having won 119 Game of the Year awards (110 from media outlets and 9 from reader votes). Second place goes to God of War Ragnarok, which received 23 Game of the Year awards (21 from media outlets and 2 from reader votes).

Momentum for Elden Ring hasn’t slowed down at all, and the game is rumoured to be getting a tonne of downloadable content (DLC), with the Colosseum being the first of many additions. Lance McDonald, a prominent fan of From Software games, recently tweeted that Elden Ring’s recent Colosseum downloadable content update is just the beginning of a string of planned content for the game.
He also mentioned that the Colosseum DLC is known internally as “DLC1,” and that it was intended to be the first DLC since before the game’s release.

Regarding his earlier comment that this DLC is the worst DLC that From Software has ever released, McDonald mentioned that he will be able to talk more about what happened with this DLC behind the scenes.
He also said that development on Elden Ring is ongoing and that fans shouldn’t lose faith in From Software’s ability to deliver.
