(The Players’ Voice award is the lone exception; it is decided solely by fan vote and has been a contest between Sonic Frontiers and Genshin Impact supporters.)

Of course, the Game of the Year title is the most significant honour, and Elden Ring is the overwhelming favourite to win it. The following are this year’s Games of the Year nominees:
