The 2022 Game Awards ended with A random kid sneaks up on stage and muttering nonsense about “Reform Rabbi Bill Clinton”. The Game Awards 2022 is now, understandably, trying to pretend that never happened, muddiing the kid’s image for one it celebrates. Elden ring Developer FromSoftware’s second game of the year won the award.
“FromSoftware is the first studio to win two Game of the Year awards at The Game Awards,” the social media account of the event chirp Wednesday.

Host Jeff Kelly poked fun at it when the minor was escorted off stage by security, and though he later tweeted that even was arrested, LAPD claims he was only taken to a local police station before being released without charge.
The indistinct tweet seemed to indicate that Keighley’s Game Awards still felt somewhat tainted by the hacker that night. Apparently, it didn’t contaminate enough to get someone with more Photoshop experience to fix the image, however. it took KotakuZack Zwiezen’s Zack Zwiezen took less than fifteen minutes to properly edit the child from the photo. or as a single person pointed outThe Game Awards could have simply used one of the many other snaps in which the kid is out of sight.
