Game Won Elden Ring the Nebula Award

Elden Ring Won the Nebula Awards this week, winning the award for best game writing for George RR Martin, Hidetaka Miyazaki and FromSoftware. Awarded by the Science Fiction & Fantasy writers Association, known as SFWA, the Nebulas are one of the most prestigious awards for writing speculative fiction in English.

This is the third prestigious Nebula victory for Martin, but the first for Miyazaki and FromSoftware. Martin has been nominated for the awards more than a dozen times during his decades-long career, the first time in 1973, while winning for the short stories in 1979 and 1985. Martin’s contribution to Elden Ring was a bit confusing for some. See what George RR Martin did for Elden Ring in the first place? for more details on why, yes, his name deserves to be on the award.

The handwritten adventure Pentiment, The feline adventure Stray, the robotic adventure Horizon Forbidden West, The adventure Totem Vampire: The Father’s masquerade Sins and the tabletop adventure book Journeys through the Radiant Citadel were also nominated for 2022.

The Nebulae have only won the award for best game writing since 2018. Elden Ring is preceded by the winners of the video game Supergiants Hades in 2020, Obsidians the Outer Worlds in 2019 and House of Tomorrow/Netflix Black Mirror: Bandersnatch for the opening prize in 2018. the winner in 2021 was the tabletop RPG Thirsty Sword Lesbians.

Elden Ring has won a fairly significant series of victories over the past year, including the 2022 game of the Year for PC gamers, but also victories from places as diverse as the British Academy Game Awards, the DICE Awards, the Famitsu Dengeki Game Awards and the Steam Awards-the list goes on, that’s a lot. Suffice it to say that anyone who loves Elden Ring really loves Elden Ring.
