Elden Ring God of War Ragnarok GOTY Awards

Elden Ring has apparently topped The Last of Us: Part II as the most Game of the Year-awarded game ever. This is according to an in-depth study on ResetEra, which has been tallying Game of the Year wins for years now, taking all kinds of gaming publications into account.

Despite dividing a lot of opinions, The Last of Us: Part II ended up with a whopping 322 Game of the Year awards in its release year of 2020. However, Elden Ring has crept past Naughty Dog's post-apocalyptic sequel, with the open world RPG currently sitting at 323 awards. And in all likelihood, that number's only going to increase, given that we're just a few days into the new year.

Meanwhile, God of War Ragnarok received just 74 Game of the Year awards — even though it exploded onto the scene much later in 2022 and garnered near universal praise from critics. But hey, at least it won Push Square's Game of the Year! It even won our readers' vote.
