Could Sonic Frontiers steal the show from acclaimed games everywhere like Elden Ring and God of War Ragnarok? Players are campaigning hard for the new blue hedgehog game.
It is an understatement to say that Sonic Frontiers divides, as evidenced by the Metacritic score of 72 against a user rating of 8.2. At the rate it’s going, it might even be the gamers’ GOTY 2022.
Sonic Frontiers crowned Game of the Year at the Game Awards 2022?
On Metacritic, players are already placing Sonic Frontiers ahead of Elden Ring (7.8), Horizon Forbidden West (8) and God of War Ragnarok (8.1). A tendency to take with a grain of salt because, as we have pointed out, the blue hedgehog received far fewer ratings than the other games mentioned. Nevertheless, on the side of the Game Awards 2022, the mascot of SEGA is also on the heels of its big productions.
A few hours ago, Sonic Frontiers is in the top 3 of the “Players’ Voice”, the vote of the players, of the ceremony organized by Geoff Keighley. As a result, it sticks very closely God of War Ragnarok who is second and Elden Ring which is number 1.
