5. Tunic

Best Games of 2022

Tunic is an action-adventure game that came out in March of 2022 and is likely one most of you all won’t have on your Top 5 Best Games of 2022 list. If it isn’t or you’ve never even heard of Tunic we highly recommend checking it out. The bright colors and cartoon look might make you think the game is for kids but in reality, Tunic is a good mix between Zelda Breath of the Wild and Dark Souls. There truly are some good challenges when it comes to the monsters you have to take down, and exploring the world is truly enjoyable.

4. Horizon Forbidden West

Best Games of 2022

Horizon Forbidden West is the very successful follow-up to another one of our favorite games Horizon Zero Dawn. While it was always going to be a hard task to make a squeal to Zero Dawn Guerrilla Games knocked it out of the park and essentially improved the game in every aspect. The open world and the very detailed things within it was one of the clearest improvements but it didn’t stop there. The fact that ammo wasn’t restricted to certain types of weapons rather they were applied to all forms was also a nice addition. Overall if you liked Horizon Zero Dawn you for sure need to check out Horizon Forbidden West!

3. Stray

Oh, Stray… a game that came out of nowhere yet enthralled so many. In Stray, you’re going on an adventure but in the eyes of a cat. You find yourself in a walled city inhabited by robots, machines, and mutant bacteria. You will try and find your way out to the surface with the help of your drone companion and likely be engrossed in the story the whole time. Stray was always going to be on our Top 5 Best Games of 2022 list and we hope if you haven’t given it a chance you do, and then it might just make yours too!

2. God of War Ragnarök

Ragnarök is just another great game in the God of War series. How far we have come in those 18 years since the start but the games just keep on delivering. In Ragnarök, we follow Kratos and Atreus as they make their journey through the nine realms. The landscapes are gorgeous and the monsters are fierce, and the game is just fun the whole way through.
