If you thought last year was early, this year... is also early!
Welcome, once again, Chatty! I have come in December, like Santa Claus, to collect YOUR Game of the Year! The Shacknews staff is deliberating across different categories literally as this post is going up. However, I'm going to give you guys the next seven days to come up with your selections. Remember that not only are we naming the Chatty Game of the Year, but your collective vote also counts towards the overall Shacknews Game of the Year. So yes, your vote counts!
Behold! The Google Form for your Top 5 of 2022 awaits below. Give me YOUR Game of the Year and YOUR runner-up. You can give me all the way up to your Top 5, but I will not require it.
Here's the scoring system:
- #1 - 10 points
- #2 - 8 points
- #3 - 5 points
- #4 - 3 points
- #5 - 1 point
There is a Chatty handle question at the end. Duplicate votes will be tossed.
Restrictions apply. No DLCs, no Early Access, no last-gen remasters, no episodic games that have not ended by the end of 2022, and only games originally released this year! Apologies to Square Enix, but no Crisis Core for this list, since it's not out yet. Games released during the voting period (The Callisto Protocol, Marvel's Midnight Suns) are eligible. Marvel Snap may be in Early Access on PC, but because it is 1.0 on the mobile space, that IS eligible!
If you forgot what came out this year, here's our 2022 Video Game Release Dates Calendar.
You have until FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9 at 11:59PM ET, so you have one week to think about this. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO VOTE RIGHT AWAY, so if you want to wait to play some of the newer releases, you've got a little time.
The form awaits! Get in there!
