The Game Awards 2022 Have Received More Than 35 Million Votes

(CTN NEWS) – The Game Awards have become a “must-see” event as the gaming community has grown.

Even if nothing else, it’s a place where developers can announce new games, and fans can argue about who won and who lost.

The 2022 edition of the show will premiere on December 8, so voting for the event has begun. It has been open for about a week at this point.

Consequently, fans can access the categories and vote for their favourite games. It doesn’t always affect the verdict, however. It doesn’t stop people from expressing themselves.

According to “The Game Awards” official Twitter handle, 35 million votes have already been cast for the show. It’s double what the show honoured in its first week of voting last year.

That doesn’t mean 35 million gamers voted. This means 35 million votes have been counted. In the show’s structure, there are many categories, so if everyone votes across all of them, it adds up quickly.

Even so, getting 35 million votes from the gaming community is impressive, and it will be interesting to see if it makes a difference.

If you’re wondering why we said fan voting didn’t sway the verdict, here’s why. A jury and a fan vote determine the winner of the show.

Jury votes account for 90% of the vote, while fan votes account for 10%. It’s a relatively low number, but it’s the one they chose.

Fan votes matter 100% in some categories; they’re a minority.

As a result of the system, The Game Awards haven’t always been taken seriously.

As far as winners go, they have made some big “swerves” in the past, and sometimes they choose the “easy pick” rather than “thinking on their own two feet.”

As a result of “time constraints,” Geoff Keighley admitted that the jury didn’t play all the games for Game of the Year, further diluting the results.

In addition to A Plague’s Tale Requiem, Elden Ring, God of War: Ragnarok, Horizon: Forbidden West, Stray, and Xenoblade Chronicles 3, it will be interesting to see which game wins the top award.

The answer will be revealed on December 8.
