And Genshin Impact fans don't do it because they believe the game deserves the win, but because they hope they will get more free currency to roll in gacha.


Kuri115

This is actually true on a ~75% of the fanbase tbh. Last time Genshin won an award, we were given 10 free pulls and everyone's starved for them. But that reasoning only exists because they were previously given wishes, if MHY hadn't given free wishes bc of Game Awards, these "bribing votes" wouldn't exist.


Tumama813

This is the video game equivalent of “She ain't gonna fuck you, bro”


badApple1954

Are you winning son *SIMPING DETECTED*


Faxxy05

Well because they do, last time was 10 free pulls or the equivalent of 15 to 20$

PhantomXxZ

Seems you don't realise how big Genshin actually is.


DoesntWorkForIS

Or maybe, you know, because the game is actually really, really good? ​ And doesn't help that the community is huge lol Just look at the meme sub for Genshin or the leak sub. Those alone are bigger than this sub. That says something about the sheer size.


MRMAN1225

Bro... the people on the genshin subreddit are actively saying that they did this for free in game stuff


darksaiyan1234

10 free pulls ist much who cares who wins


DoesntWorkForIS

Of course a lot of people are doing it hoping to get free stuff. But my point is, Genshin got that huge because it is a good game in the first place and many people are also voting because it is a good game. ​ Anyways, this award is just a popularity contest and the biggest and more loyal fanbase will win anyways and we'll forget about it by the next day.


MRMAN1225

It got popular because its an open world gacha game, people that don't have consoles would love that. For people that already have consoles it doesn't stand out as much because there are better open world games they can pick from. For mobile players there's nothing else out there


Paker_The_Swager

Genshin impact fan spotted. Opinion invalid


DoesntWorkForIS

Sounds like a toxic sonic fan


Paker_The_Swager

Sounds like cope


Warm-Faithlessness11

Bro I like Genshin but in no way does it deserve to win any awards, especially with what else was in the running. The votes are clearly bribe votes


DoesntWorkForIS

When did Mhy bribe its player? lol ​ I'd rather see Elden Ring win but well, its a popularity contest in the end.


lilsi10

I checked some of the other subreddits (Elden Ring and Genshin Impact) and man they don't like the idea of Sonic Frontiers actually winning this.


_soap666

You'd be surprised how popular Sonic is in the souls community lol


TSB223

Wait really?? I wonder why that’s a thing in Souls community 😂😅


DragonGamerEX

Some guy pressed me on the Elden ring reddit cause I wanted sonic frontiers to win like you guys should be focusing on game of the year and possibly losing to stray😂


FireDragisKeroks

Is the Stray thing a meme or is it a literal thret?


DragonGamerEX

A bit of both but more so a meme


Kingdarkshadow

Oh no, anyway


Warm-Faithlessness11

I think Sonic is only winning out of spite votes against Genshin tbh. Horizon Forbidden West and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 barely got any when they should have been heavyweights in this alongside God of War: Ragnarok and Eldin Ring


lilsi10

I find it funny how Sonic's rival here isn't God of War or Elden Ring but fucking Genshin Impact.


NobleN6

I voted Elden Ring, but I would much prefer Sonic getting GOTY over that gambling, pay to win trash that is Genshin.


Pechowy

Genshin isn't p2w lmao


FireDragisKeroks

Don't froget to come back for the round 3 that startes 5th December. Edit: THIS IS PLAYER VOICE AWARD (If you were wondering.) (4.12. 0:02 CET) Current resultes are 1) Frontiers 15% | 2) Genshin/Elden 14% | 3) GoWR 12% | 4) Stray 11%

remasteration

Wait, Frontiers acc has a chance?? OVER RAGNAROK?? AND ELDEN RING??


FireDragisKeroks

Yea, as long as we also pull or weight in the 3rd round.


badApple1954

Yes. Gott knows what happened. But the blue boy's back.


Muhipudding

Given how GoW is nominated for so many awards. It's likely they don't even care. No one talked about it on GoW sub either


remasteration

Hold on, which award is this for?


Muhipudding

Player's voice award


remasteration

And you win that from Player votes, I see


Zaberzpark

EdgyTheHedgy21

Thanks!

I will become the biggest Genshin hater


Paker_The_Swager

We need to beat virgin genshin impact


BritishPie606

I think a lot of people who are upset with this aren't even aware that this is only for the "players choice" award. God of War or Elden ring are 100% going to get nominated for something this year. Frontiers as flawed as it may seem, 100% deserves something because I legitimately think it's something special. Also. Genshin Impact didn't even release this year lol.


x_GARUDA_x

Come on guys we can do this, Sexshrek Impact doesn't deserve to win. I think they promised protogems to the playerbase (In game currency) and that's why they are voting a lot for it.


Warm-Faithlessness11

I like Genshin but no it does not deserve an award. It must be defeated


oberstein123

time for them to face their fears


Saleemabdelhai3

Guys remember, if we win we might get Sonic Adventure 3! (And hopefully a pc port of Unleashed)


fromulus_

I can guarantee you that winning or losing completely inconsequential awards like these will never have any real impact on the planning that goes behind deciding what games get to be made or not.


SanicRb

To be fair I'm sure getting a award will signal to Sega even more so that they struck gold with the new formular getting them to invest more into this branch of their company again. Afterall Frontiers positive reception to here already lead to Sonic Team being allowed to increase staff size again.


fromulus_

The positive reception already happened and was likely already noted by the SEGA higher-ups, we don't need TGA for that. The only ones to gain anything from this would be the marketing team, who would now get to slap "PLAYERS' CHOICE GAME AWARDS" on every ad about the game.


TheAxolotlPerson

who cares it's hype


Sadrien6

IS THIS THE GAME AWARDS?


[deleted]

Honestly I don’t think it’ll win I do love the game but my vote is going for god of war ragnarok that game hit me in the feels


FireDragisKeroks

You can vote for 5 games this round not just 1.


Overthinker-Blue

We are making up for frontiers momentum in game


cachisonic_chido

What


Snakebud

See I wasn’t going to do this but now I want to for the salt. Alright Sonic you got my vote.


FireDragisKeroks

THIS IS PLAYER VOICE AWARD If you were wondering.


SalaComMander

Pace yourselves. It doesn't matter who wins the second round, the real fight is to win the third. We're well in the top 5 of round 2, so our seat in the final round is practically secured.


Christos_Gaming

i hope the pun on the title of the post is intentional, if its not, i will cry for 35.8 hours


FireDragisKeroks

If ya mean the momenutm part, yes. Else I don't know what you'r talking about.


Christos_Gaming

yes thats what i was talking about


Squodge_Heimer

Genshin Impact does not deserve a win tbh, first off it's not even a 2022 game second off, it's just a glorified gacha game with bare minimum combat and an exploration system that owes most of it's personality to BOTW....


MichaelCoryAvery

Woo!


ShowofStupidity

Momentum. Heh.


Lytell11

How did Genshin get into second place?


FireDragisKeroks

Other comments explain, is it true though? IDK I don't care for it or it's comunity that much. (though now the split is 16/15% in stead of 17/15%)


Fresh-Boysenberry-63

This is true, Genshin fans are botting votes so their game can win and they can get free stuff. This is why Genshin impact is so high.


KingCaleb2003

So like… what category is it under cuz me no can find


FireDragisKeroks

players voice


maemoetime

We can do it, we can beat genshit, we can beat the pay to win mobile game that didn’t even fucking come out this year


MisfortunateJack77

I'm here intensifies


ShadowAvenger32

Blazed through all my accounts just now and voted for Frontiers and nothing else. If we keep it up we can do this!


CraterLabs

My ideal victor is Stray, tho


Onaterdem

If Frontiers wins over Ragnarok and Elden Ring, I'll be extremely sad as a diehard Sonic fan of 14 years. There is being a fan of something, and then there is being a blind fanboy who cannot see logical criticism. There is no universe where Frontiers beats Ragnarok on an objective scale.


FireDragisKeroks

Dude, this is players voice, not game of the year or any other category. The only thing we are saing with this is "We like the game, SEGA you are on a good track".


Onaterdem

While it is true, most people are voting for their GOTY.


FireDragisKeroks

The current statistic of the 2nd round would like to disagree: [https://thegameawards.com/brackets/players-voice](https://thegameawards.com/brackets/players-voice)


Onaterdem

I'd be happy to be wrong on what I said. I'm not seeing the stats you're mentioning, but I hope you're right.


FireDragisKeroks

Just scroll down it's under nominated games.
