The game had been released on March 25th, 2022. You will get to play a completely new Borderland game. The ambiance and aura of this game's environment resemble something similar to a mix of 'Medevial',' Mystical' and 'Fantasy' Themes. The weapon types seem totally different. The enemies seem totally different. Just the overall flow and loop of the game and the map seems to be different and is more fantasy RPG-focused. It already looks like it's gonna be fun. Borderlands lovers would love this one. And for someone, who isn't a fan of the series, this game might still catch the attention due to the humor it has. The game having an element of humor is something new and different.

9. Pokemon Legends: Arceus

Platform: Nintendo Switch

The Game had been released on January 28th, 2022. This is the big one, folks. If you've been looking for a Pokemon game where you can run around a big 3D open world and catch Pokemon and battle, here you go. This game has it all and it looks phenomenal. The game has been criticized for its graphics but it just looks like a kind of the limitation of the Nintendo Switch. The fact that there is a fully 3D Pokemon game on Nintendo Switch is really cool. The events and story of this game take place in the Hisui region. It has got an old-school pokemon vibe to it. You play as a guy or a girl with a cool hat and a jacket, but the feeling you get while playing the game is different. It has a sort of an 'Ancient' feel while looks amazing. You will be seeing new Pokemon, new trainers, new ways to fight, and most importantly, new ways to explore.

8. Gran Turismo 7

It's been quite some time now but Polyphony Digital has finally released another one. They very much took their time. The Game had been released on March 4th, 2022. Looks like "Gran Turismo 7" is continuing the trend of upping all the stakes: more cars, crazier graphics, more options, more details overall, and more fine-tuning. And we loved to see it. We are always thrilled when such awesome Playstation Games are released. This one in particular, if you haven't played yet, is more hardcore simulation-focused, so don't expect a lot of personality and fun and doing crazy jumps. The game has hardcore realism and real car stuff. The Gran Turismo series takes things a bit more seriously and if you're a hardcore car enthusiast, you will cherish this one. At a first glance, it looks really pretty. Even though the updates that the game has received aren't big, the game itself is really good, fun, and gorgeous. In the end, that's all we're really looking for.

7. Sons of the Forest

This is the long-awaited follow-up to "The Forest," which was a survival game with some really hardcore horror elements to it and a lot of good stuff. "Sons of the Forest," interestingly enough, is hotly anticipated by "Forest" fans, but we don't know much about it. It does look kind of familiar to 'The Forest' in a lot of ways. You find yourself stranded again. You would have to craft and use items and build a shelter along with other stuff to sustain and survive. And of course, have to defend yourself from really weird and creepy forest creatures. We are hoping that they really went all out and are gonna give us something absolutely amazing. That's, of course, just our general analysis, but there's good potential in it. The release date of this game has been extended from May 2022 to October 2022.

6. Sifu

The Game had been released on Feb 8th, 2022. This is one of our favorites, just because of how cool it looks. We love games like these, especially if they are coming from developers like Slow Clap. The same developers who made "Absolver," which was an intense game with a hand-to-hand fighting system and a lot of challenges. They have taken the very same gameplay, framework, and combat system, and applied it to a different theme and genre of game. There is a mechanic in this game due to which every time you die, you come back older. Fight scenes are hardcore, the way you can grapple, counter and fight enemies and use objects in the environment or use the environment itself to win seems so satisfying. If you've played "Absolver," you know that the combat system is on an absolutely different level. Even if the rest of the game was just kind of like eh, that combat system is top-tier, so for them to use that again and expand on it makes the game worth trying.

5. Forspoken

"Forspoken" would be released exclusively for PC and PS5. As of now, the news reports that it is a two-year PlayStation exclusive, and will be released in October 2022.

It is a Square Enix action-adventure RPG that looked like a really gorgeous game as shown in their tech demo. But now, is starting to reveal itself as a full game. It's still a bit too early to tell, but the concept of you just kind of being a regular girl pushed into this weird fantasy world and using these cool powers, is kind of almost like "Infamous," but you're a mage casting magic, seems pretty cool, not to mention the fact that just the visual style, the dialogue, the music, the art direction, all of that seems to be top-tier, big-budget, AAA stuff. We're just hoping that the actual meat of the game, the gameplay, the exploration, and that story, can really live up to what had been portrayed on the surface.

4. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2

Platform: Xbox Series X and Series S, PC

Now, the "S.T.A.L.K.E.R." series is an absolutely legendary PC series. It's a masterpiece because of a fact that it pioneered open-world, survival-horror, resource management stuff in a fun post-nuclear-disaster world. And it seems like the developers are doing it again, but this time, with an extremely heavy budget and extraordinary graphics. Recent videos with this game running in Unreal Engine 5 look absolutely insane. Early Gameplay footages and screenshots reveal there is combat between humans and mystical, otherworldly things are present, including weapon attachments, and using items. And if this is anything at all like the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R.s, it should make for a really tense experience, and now thankfully, it has the graphics, the mood, and the atmosphere to really fill in the blanks and sell what made the original game so special. There's still time to play the originals if you never have, but we'll know for sure if this one is legit when we will get to play it on April 28th, 2022.

3. Dying Light 2

Platform: Xbox Series X/S, Playstation 4, Playstation 5, PC

After so many delays, the game was finally locked and had been released on 4th Feb, 2022. And long story short, the reason why this game has been put on the list is that we liked the original game so much. The original game was a really good, solid, adventure open-world zombie game which was also supported with a ton of cool post-release content and DLCs, and it felt like a gift that the developers kept on giving. Now, with "Dying Light 2," it's taking that fun core gameplay framework with the parkour, action, the violence and has added a lot more RPG and story elements to it. You would have to make decisions on how to help out the civilizations that have cropped up after the viral outbreak. This game is trying to do great things with the decisions you take. Like, who you end up helping and what you do will actually change how the societies or these factions work. You would be only getting to play with Melee weapons as no emphasis on guns is given. It could be because we're so far past the original outbreak that things are kind of broken down now. The parkour move set has also been upgraded which is great. This game is highly recommended by us regardless.

2. Horizon Forbidden West

It's an absolute blowout compared to "Horizon Zero Dawn." They have taken a lot of things from it along with making it bigger, badder, and crazier. The combat and the action look absolutely stunning. The amount of destruction to the enemies, the enemy types themselves, and the speed of it, all seem really cool. Not to mention the beauty of the world. It's a cocktail of a new adventure, new regions, new cultures, and apparently, more of an emphasis on questing and towns and RPG stuff that we love. Apparently, NPCs are much more interesting this time around. A lot of people liked "HorizonZero Dawn" quite a bit, but didn't love it head over heels. This one has taken it to the next level. Thankfully, we won't have to wait for it as it has been released on February 18th, 2022 already.

1. Elden Ring

What more can you say about this long-anticipated game from FromSoftware, the people behind "Demon's Souls," "Dark Souls," "Bloodborne" and "Sekiro"? This is their next big thing and has very much taken the Soulsborne formula and framework, putting it in an open-world setting. And from what we've seen, it doesn't look like they're half-assessed it. It is an open-world Souls-like game. The way they've designed the bosses and how the flow works from the open-world into dungeons seems to be pretty creative. It gives you choices along with freedom. There is an assigned jump button in this game which is a game-changer and insane. The summons looks cool. Everything about this game looks phenomenal If you're a fan of these games, a fan of FromSoftware, then nothing else is left to say. Just get the experience of playing this masterpiece yourselves and have a jolly time. There's nothing that you don't already know or there's nothing else to get you more excited. "Elden Ring" has been released on all the major consoles on February 25th, 2022.

With this, we are concluding our list of Top 10 Best Video Games of 2022. Everybody has their own taste when it comes to gaming. We hope that you were able to find something on the list that satisfied your gaming tastebuds!
