Best Role-Playing Game – Elden Ring
RPGs offer some of the best forms of escapism in gaming, whether it’s soaking up a sumptuously-realised open world, forming relationships with countless characters or evolving your protagonist to meet your own specific playstyle. And boy, there were some right corkers in 2022 for RPG fans.
The obvious main contender is Elden Ring, and unsurprisingly, FromSoftware’s fantasy epic stole our staff vote. It was almost a clean sweep for Elden Ring, with little in the way of competition.
