2022 techraptor awards nominees

2022 was a standout year for variety. The Dark Souls formula was taken to a new level with Elden Ring, the AAA blockbuster was just about perfected with God of War Ragnarok, and indie titles also brought the heat in standouts like Tunic, NORCO, and Neon White. There were fantastic games in just about any genre, and no matter what kind of gamer you are, we bet you found something you loved. 

Below is our list of nominees as determined and voted on by the TechRaptor Staff. Starting January 9th, we'll be posting the winners of our awards.
