Elden Ring is the game with the most game of the year awards, not just in 2022, but most awards in general, according to data collected by Game of the Year Award Tracker.

Almost every web portal, magazine, or other media outlet whose focus is on gaming determine which game, according to their criteria, should win the title "game of the year." Sum up all those awards, and you will get the ultimate game of the year winner. For the year that is behind us, without any competition, this title goes to From Software 's RPG, Elden Ring , the game that won the most awards for the game of the year in 2022.

Game of the Year Award Tracker , a website dedicated to tracking all game of the year awards, allows you to see how many GOTY awards Elden Ring has received this year, as well as other games that have won the title "game of the year" in the previous five years.

Until this year, The Last of Us Part II , the game of the year 2020, had received the most game of the year awards, with 322 prizes won out of a total of 644 given that year (50 per cent in total).

According to this website, Elden Ring has already won 323 awards, which beat the previous record by one. However, they have taken into account only 440 awards so far, six fewer than last year and more than 200 fewer than in 2020. Since the results are still coming in, the record could be significantly increased. 

According to the statistics thus far, Elden Ring has won 73.4 per cent of this year's game of the year awards.
