The year 2022 has several promises of great games. However, so far, we have many examples that the competition for the Game of the Year award at The Game Awards can be fierce – mainly because of the difference between each one.
Don’t know exactly what was good about these first four months? Don’t worry, we’ve rounded up the five best games of 2022 so far. It is worth remembering that they are separated at random – although I consider some of these in my personal top 3.
Elden Ring (PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X)
Considered one of From Software’s most ambitious projects, “Elden Ring” came up with the proposal to mix the Soulsborne-style games formula with a rich open world. This made the title receive praise from the specialized critics and the public, making it one of the best sellers until then.
Anyone who decides to venture into the Midlands will be faced with relentless enemies and breathtaking landscapes. Want to know if this incursion is worth it? Check out our review.
Horizon Forbidden West (PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5)
And one of the most awaited sequels has been released. Still in the role of Aloy, players must face even greater challenges in an even bigger world and with more dangers – in addition to the return of familiar faces.
Here, the highlight is the amount of equipment that can help the player progress in the adventure. As with the case of “Sifu”, we have analysis of “Horizon Forbidden West” here at TecMasters.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus (Nintendo Switch)
The game arrived with the proposal to innovate the Pokémon universe with a totally different gameplay. The open world, combined with the combat system and a very varied Pokédex made the game a sales success.
Even the game should receive a DLC later this year that adds new content to the title.
We also have a review for this game.
Kirby and the Forgotten Land (Nintendo Switch)
Kirby arrived as a pleasant surprise. Despite being the same character as always, the implementation of some new mechanics gave the title an air of novelty, making the game one of the most fun released so far.
Check out our review.
Ghostwire: Tokyo (PlayStation 5 and PC)
Set in Japan inhabited by various creatures, the player can experience yet another work by Shinji Mikami – creator of “Resident Evil”.
With several cultural references of the country – in addition to the implementation of several Japanese horror legends -, the title stands out for its dark atmosphere and the use of various elements for player immersion.
As with most previous PlayStation games, we also have a review on TecMasters.
Bonus: Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga (PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X and Nintendo Switch)
“Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga” gives a new look to the “Star Wars” saga and features all nine of the main series films portrayed by the building blocks in game format. With levels full of secrets and things to discover, the player can spend hours exploring everything.
