Just as we thought last year’s various awards were ready, GDC comes with one more. THE Game Developers Conference takes place in March and has its own awards.
The show contains the usual assortment of prizes, including, of course, the Game of the Year – GOTY. There is strong competition here with names like Deathloop e It Takes Two, but Forza Horizon 5 receives a welcome and well-deserved nomination.
Racing games are known to be despised in awards, especially when it comes to the GOTY award which is the biggest. We argue that the Forza Horizon series deserves more recognition, especially since it has such broad appeal for a racing game.
The full list of nominees for the 2022 GDC Game of the Year consists of Forza Horizon 5, It Takes Two, Deathloop, Resident Evil Village, and Inscryption. Forza Horizon 5 is also in the running for several other awards, including Best Visual Art, Best Technology, and Best Audio.
Winners will be announced at the GDCA ceremony on Wednesday, March 23, 2022.
