TGA: Toxicity From Sonic Frontiers Fans Because Genshin Impact Stole An Award From It


This year's The Game Awards, which took place tonight, did not fail to surprise us. We're not just talking about all the unexpected announcements we were able to witness, but also about events that certainly weren't scheduled, such as the infiltration of the stage by a little boy in the middle of the GOTY award ceremony. And speaking of things that weren't planned, the events that see the Sonic Frontiers and Genshin Impact communities as protagonists certainly fall into this category.

The story took place because of the Players' Voice award, a award where only players can cast their vote, thus making it a recognition that can only be decided by the community. Each year contains 5 games to vote for, and in this edition the titles present were Elden Ring, God of War Ragnarök, Genshin Impact, Sonic Frontiers and Stray. The winner was Genshin Impact , and apparently this thing did not go down well with someone.

Once the results were known, a real war began between the Genshin Impact community and that of Sonic Frontiers, which quickly resulted in ridicule in enormous toxicity that resulted in Twitter and on the Reddit pages of the games. Insults, racism and spam are not lacking towards the miHoYo title, together with heavy accusations such as the fact that the game community is made up entirely of pedophiles. It also took Geoff Keighley to remove the bot votes, which resulted in a huge vote drop for the blue hedgehog game, but this only made the community hotter, accusing the "enemies" of having done the same.

Fortunately, it is only a minority of players from the two communities, even if it must be said that it is a very noisy minority. The rest of the fans are trying to calm the waters on both fronts to bring back the rationality that has apparently been lacking in the last few hours. We just have to hope that this situation will be resolved as soon as possible.
