Battle lines have been drawn and a video game war is being fought across social media: it’s Sonic Frontiers vs. Genshin Impact. Both titles have been nominated for the Players’ Voice Awards at The Game Awards tomorrow night, and the hardcore fanbase of each game has taken it upon itself to try and make their chosen game the victor. Just 15 hours of voting remain, and it certainly looks like one of the two will come out on top despite three other entrants.
Elden Ring, God of War Ragnarok, and Stray all made it to the final round of fan voting, but previous rounds showed Sonic Frontiers and Genshin Impact commanding up to 80 per cent of the overall vote. Therefore, it very much seems like a two-horse race for the award. Results aren’t shown on The Game Awards website for the final vote, with the winner announced during the show on Thursday night.
Genshin Impact is also nominated for the Best Ongoing Game and Best Mobile Game categories, while Sonic Frontiers only has a chance of winning the Players’ Voice Award. Hashtags like #SonicSweep are now trending on Twitter to try and make it happen. Who do you want to win? Share your pick in the comments below.
