What Are Your Picks for the Best Games of the Year?
As the end of the year approaches, it’s time to tally up the votes and see which games were the best in 2022. There is no shortage of exciting games we got to experience this year. We had amazing entries in acclaimed franchises and a bunch of great indie titles that flourished.
Early in the year, we got one of the most anticipated games of the year with Elden Ring. Its masterful design, art, and new approachability garnered praise from veterans of previous soulslike games and newcomers who had previously avoided the genre. Meanwhile, PlayStation released sequels for two of their biggest franchises, Horizon Forbidden West and God of War: Ragnarok. It was a fantastic treat for Playstation fans to mark the beginning and end of the year. Indies were also bountiful, with Tunic and Stray captivating the hearts and minds of broad audiences with their charm, intelligent design, and ability to be a cute fuzzy animal that took care of business.
