Gaming appears to come on leaps and bounds as the years pass, and 2022 promises to be the biggest and best yet. But, what everyone naturally wants to know is which are the best games of the year so far? Well, keep reading, and we will tell you precisely that.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus
We’re going to dive straight in and mention Pokemon Legends: Arceus. You will rarely find a Pokemon game that hits the scene and doesn’t turn out to be a massive hit. While Arceus is an excellent game in its own right, it’s the fact that it takes the Pokemon gaming formula in a completely different direction that makes it a must-play title. If anyone was starting to feel that the Pokemon franchise was becoming a bit samey, they won’t have any worries on that front anymore, as they assume the role of a researcher out in the wild.
Gran Turismo 7
The Gran Turismo racing series is arguably the most realistic driving experience available to play, hands down. So, if you want to get behind the wheel but want that authenticity rather than an arcade-style experience, then look no further. What GT7 gives players is the ability to play the game the way they want. So, whether they’re a car collector or someone who enjoys racing at some of the world’s most iconic tracks, the Nürburgring being one of them, they will find the latest instalment of Gran Turismo the perfect addition to their stash of driving games.
Now, we know it’s not a video game, but even the latest online slot games are rammed-packed with interactive features and graphics. We’ve picked Funk Master out because it’s brand new and already proving a hit with players, and it’s a game that comes from the impressive development team NetEnt. NetEnt are famed for its work in creating Starburst, arguably the most popular video slot of all time. It was a simple but effective approach there, and we see the same again in Funk Master. It’s got the hallmarks of another legendary slot title.
Nintendo Switch Sports
Nintendo Switch Sports is another Switch title that makes it into our list. And the reason it has become one of the top games of 2022 so far is that it’s not only fun in single-player mode, but users can face off against friends, families and even strangers online. Nintendo revolutionised sport back in the day with WII Sports, and with so many disciplines to enjoy and the motion controls that go with it, this is a game that will be played a lot before the year’s out.
Of course, people will have their own preferences when it comes to the games of the year so far. However, the titles we mentioned above provide a serious level of quality and an immersive and fun experience to boot. Plus, what’s better than beating your friends at bowling?
