The Game Awards 2022 Round-up: All Winners and PS5, PS4 Announcements

As promised, we’re here with a round-up of The Game Awards 2022 winners and announcements for our readers. The biggest event of the year came and went, with a particularly odd ending that saw a random guy interrupt the Game of the Year acceptance speech with a line to remember: “I want to nominate this award to my reformed Orthodox rabbi Bill Clinton.” We still can’t get over that one. But, without further ado, here’s what happened before that fiasco.
