The Game Awards may be focused mostly on the games themselves, but one category does lean closer to the television/movie side of things. With the list of nominees announced, TGA has announced which series/films have been nominated for Best Adaptation.

TGA 2022: Arcane and Cyberpunk - Edgerunners Join Nominations for Best Adaptation

As per the official site, the nominees include:

  • Arcane: League of Legends
  • Cyberpunk: Edgerunners
  • The Cuphead Show!
  • Uncharted
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Admittedly I’m a sucker for serious emotional stakes so I would think that Arcane and Cyberpunk would be at the top of a lot of peoples’ lists, but there has also been a lot of positive buzz when it comes to Sonic the Hedgehog 2. You think a lot of 8-12-year-olds are going to voting on this poll?

Though Edgerunners did give us a well-contained story, Arcane ultimately has the more well-rounded characters and more unique visual style. One thing’s for sure, both properties have provided the internet with some top-tier waifu material with Lucy, Rebecca, Jinx, and Vi.

I guess if one show would be at the bottom of the nominees, I would think it would be Sony’s Uncharted movie starring Tom Holland. The movie had kind of a bland reception when it released, and no amount of Tom Holland charm could get fans on board for his version of Nathan Drake.

The Game Awards 2022 is set to take place on Dec. 8.
