The Game Awards 2022 has come and gone, and you know what that means! Yep, we're going to share the results of our predictions quiz, which was published earlier this week. In it, we asked the Push Square community to predict the events of Geoff Keighley's show, through 20 yes or no questions. Needless to say, the results make for a fairly interesting read...
Now then, let's see how you did!
Question 1: Will Geoff Keighley be wearing a suit alongside some impressive (and expensive) looking sneakers? (2,530 votes)
Geoff did indeed wear some impressive looking kicks, which topped off a look that included a velvet suit!
Question 2: Will a sequel to Death Stranding be announced? (2,500 votes)
Phew, that was close! Death Stranding 2 (working title, apparently) was announced during the show with a typically great trailer.
Question 3: Will a PlayStation Studios game be announced? (2,492 votes)
Correct (kind of)!
Okay look, we're going to give you this one because we're feeling generous. While we didn't get a new PlayStation Studios game, we did get an announcement for Horizon Forbidden West's expansion, and PC ports for Returnal and The Last of Us: Part I were confirmed. We think that's enough to warrant a point for the believers.
Question 4: Will Darth Vader appear in the Star Wars Jedi: Survior trailer? (2,444 votes)
The winning streak is over! Darth Vader was missing in action during the gameplay-based trailer, although we can certainly see him making an appearance in the game itself.
Question 5: Will Elden Ring DLC be announced? (2,446 votes)
Nope, Elden Ring got plenty of awards, but it didn't get any DLC announcements.
Question 6: Will Horizon Forbidden West win two or more awards? (2,431 votes)
Your lack of faith has been rewarded. Horizon Forbidden West won bugger all, despite being nominated in several categories. Always the bridesmaid...
Question 7: Will a brand new Monster Hunter game be teased? (2,356 votes)
Now, this was a tricky question since Capcom's only just confirmed that Monster Hunter Rise is coming to PlayStation platforms, but you never quite know what to expect from the Japanese publisher these days. Still, you stuck to your guns and got it right.
Question 8: Will Tekken 8 unveil a completely new character to the series? (2,313 votes)
Unlucky, really. There were no brand new characters in the Tekken 8 trailer, although Jun is returning after a long, long absence.
Question 9: Will Dragon Age: Dreadwolf get a confirmed release date? (2,276 votes)
We thought there was a chance that we'd finally get an idea of when the next Dragon Age is coming out, but we didn't even get a vague launch window. Dreadwolf didn't appear at all during the event.
Question 10: Will someone cosplaying as Kratos appear at any point during the show? (2,290 votes)
Nope, cosplayers were in extremely short supply at The Game Awards 2022. Kratos was nowhere to be seen, sadly.
Question 11: Will Knack 3 be announced? (2,256 votes)
Nice, you got our annual joke question correct! But one of these days, the prophecy will come true...
Question 12: Will Konami announce a new project? (2,252 votes)
Nah, sorry everyone, but we can't give you a point for that Dead Cells Castlevania DLC. That's not really a new Konami project. A shame.
Question 13: Will we see in-game footage from Assassin's Creed Mirage? (2,218 votes)
You did well to get this one right, we think. Ubisoft had almost nothing to announce during the show, and the wait continues for actual Assassin's Creed Mirage gameplay.
Question 14: Will Josef Fares swear while presenting? (2,173 votes)
Josef presented the all-important Game of the Year award, and he kept it family friendly. No swears this time, much to our disappointment.
Question 15: Will Final Fantasy XVI get a June 2023 release date? (2,164 votes)
Wow, we thought this question was a bit of a gamble, but you got it absolutely right. The anticipated action RPG really did get a June 2023 release date.
Question 16: Will we see anything of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth? (2,154 votes)
Question 17: Will God of War Ragnarok win four or more awards? (2,232 votes)
Yep, God of War Ragnarok swept an impressive six awards on the night.
Question 18: Will Dragon's Dogma 2 get a trailer? (2,125 votes)
We all wanted it, but it wasn't meant to be. Dragon's Dogma 2 remains an enigma for the time being.
Question 19: Will PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan appear on stage at any point? (2,184 votes)
Spot on! Jim Ryan was nowhere to be seen at The Game Awards 2022 — wasn't even in the audience, as far as we could tell. Probably too busy making sure all those PS5s get shipped for the holidays.
Question 20: Will Elden Ring win the Game of the Year award? (2,255 votes)
It was inevitable, wasn't it? Elden Ring was destined to get that Game of the Year award after it all but stopped the Earth from spinning earlier in the year. A worthy winner, we're sure many will agree.
Final Score: 14/20
Wow, not bad, not bad at all. 14/20 is an admirable score, and you got some especially tricky predictions correct. Pats on the back for everyone, we think, and we'll hopefully see you again next year!
