Genshin Impact wins the ‘Best Ongoing’ game award in Google Play’s Best of 2022

Genshin Impact has recently received a new accolade for its already massive list of awards. Google Play has given this popular title the 'Best Ongoing' game award. Gamers curious to know how this game won the award should check out what Google Play posted at the beginning of their Best of 2022 awards article:

"Below is the full list of winning apps and games in the U.S. across 20 categories selected by Google Play's editorial team, plus the best-selling books and audiobooks."

Thus, the 'Best Ongoing' game award came from their editorial team rather than fan votes like in some other categories. It is worth mentioning that this honor is separate from TGA 2022's award with the same name, which Genshin Impact is currently a nominee for.

'Best Ongoing' is one of a few new categories introduced in Google Play's Best of 2022 awards. Their editorial team selected Genshin Impact over the following competitors:

  • Candy Crush Saga
  • Garena Free Fire
  • Pokemon Go
  • Roblox

All four of those mobile games are incredibly popular, so it's quite the achievement for Genshin Impact to win over them. None of HoYoverse's social media accounts have made an official comment nearly an hour after winning this honor.

Don't forget that you can vote in TGA too

Not every award is decided by just one small group of people. For example, you can choose to vote for the game at The Game Awards 2022 by going to their official website. Just log in and head to the 'Best Ongoing' and 'Best Mobile Game' sections since those are the two categories relevant to this topic.
