The Game Awards try to censor the jammer… in a bad way

The Game Awards try to censor the jammer… in a bad way

The Game Awards 2022 will be best remembered for the 15-year-old heckler. Don't you remember? It was a very embarrassing moment for the organizers of the show, which saw an innocuous boy managed to take the stage while part of the FromSoftware team collected the Game of the Year award for Elden Ring. At that point the boy approached the microphone, looking for his fifteen seconds of fame and glory, pronouncing one dedicated to Bill Clinton.

This is obviously a huge problem for the safety of guests and present. And now the staff behind the event wanted to use censorship, pretending that all this did not happen, probably to avoid talking about it again. In fact, in a recent tweet from the account, the disturber was removed from the shoulders of Hidetaka Miyazaki and the interpreter, but in a decidedly awkward way. However, part of the shirt and the figure of him are still visible.

There is a very specific reason why the organizers behind The Game Awards are trying to do some sort of damage control and it is obviously the safety of the present. If it was very easy for a 15-year-old boy to enter the arena and even be able to reach the stage, something is wrong. And it is clear that no one wants to publicize that gesture further, but the official photos obviously tell another story, which is impossible to erase.

From Software is the first studio to win 2 Game of the Year awards at #TheGameAwards

2019 – Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

The Game Awards 2022 saw the triumph of Elden Ring, God of War Ragnarok and many other games. Beyond the heckler episode, the show has been a hit across the board and now audience expectations are definitely high for next year's show. However, it is difficult to do better, even if higher-level measures will probably be taken in terms of security.
