The Game Awards 2022
Tune into to the Game Awards 2022 on December 17th, at 7:30pm PST for our look back at what has been one of the most active years for video games in a long time. And with 2022 shaping up to be another year full of great games, we have plenty of things to look forward to and speculate about!
Why is The Game Awards 2022 happening so early?
The Game Awards 2022 is an annual awards ceremony that honors the best video games of the year. The award show is produced by Geoff Keighley and hosted by different celebrities each year.
The 2022 edition of The Game Awards is happening unusually early in the calendar year. This is due to the COVID-19 pandemic causing delays in the release schedule for many games. As a result, The Game Awards 2021 was also pushed back and took place in March 2021 instead of its usual December time slot.
While The Game Awards 2022 usually culminates the gaming year, with many developers and players looking forward to it as a celebration of the industry, the early 2022 date means that it will now take place before some of the most highly anticipated releases of the year. These include Sony’s God of War: Ragnarok, Microsoft’s Halo Infinite, and Nintendo’s Metroid Prime 4.
Despite this, The Game Awards 2022 will still feature plenty of content to get excited about. There will be announcements for new games, trailers for upcoming titles, and acceptance speeches from winners in a variety of categories. So even though it’s happening earlier than usual, there’s still plenty to look forward to at The Game Awards 2022.

Why does no one care about Smash Bros Ultimate? (I did not say this)
It’s been nearly a year since the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and yet the game still seems to be flying under the radar. While it’s true that the game has been overshadowed by other titles in recent months, that doesn’t explain why it isn’t getting more attention from the gaming community at large.
There are a few possible reasons for this. For one, Smash Bros. Ultimate is a niche title; it’s not necessarily something that appeals to everyone. Additionally, the game doesn’t have a lot of mainstream appeal; it’s not as popular as some of Nintendo’s other franchises, such as Mario or Zelda.
Finally, it’s possible that people simply aren’t aware of the game. While it did receive quite a bit of hype leading up to its release, that buzz has died down significantly in the past year. Consequently, fewer people may be aware of its existence than they were prior to its launch.
