Stevivor’s Best Narrative of 2022

No surprises here.

We’re motoring along with our 2022 GOTY awards program. Today’s category is Best Narrative inside a game of 2022.

Once again, Stevivor staffers gave the nod to Sony Santa Monica’s God of War Ragnarok.

God of War draws from Norse mythology, and tells its own story of family, hardships, truths, loss and redemption. With the established father-son dynamic between Kratos and Atreus – and the chirpy banter from bumbling head Mirmir — Ragnarök launches straight into a tug at the heartstrings – and that really sets the tone,” wrote Ben in his review.

“This strong start is also amongst the weakest of the game. It only gets better the more you play.”

God of War Ragnarok is available on PS4 and PS5; it’s previously won GOTY 2022 awards for Best Action Game and Best Audio.
