Sixth Annual Completionator Community Top 10


published on December 23, 2022

The 2022 Completionator Community Top 10 voting has come to a close and I want to thank everyone who participated in the event this year. Six years ago we thought it would be fun to come up with our own video game awards that you, the members of the Completionator community, could vote on. Unlike other Game of the Year awards, the games people could vote for were for all games ever, not just those released in 2022. The only rule is the vote had to be for a game the person played in 2022.

This year we had 34 people submit votes (+1 from last year) on 266 different games (+7 from last year). The votes were given point values based on how the games were placed in the person’s stack. So first place received 10 points and tenth placed received 1 point. Any ties were broken by the number of votes the game received. Without further ado, we now reveal the 2022 Completionator Community Top 10!
