This isn’t the first time Genshin Impact has made it to the podium at Google’s Best of Awards selection. In 2020 HoYoVerse’s open-world free-to-play action RPG took home the Best Game of 2020 award. That year it was also nominated for the best User’s Choice Game category, but lost to SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off.

This year, the Google Play Awards 2022 Best Game honor went to Apex Legends Mobile, which also won the User’s Choice Game award in the U.S.
