2022 is now in the rear view mirror, and overall I’d say it was a good year — in terms of videogames, if little else. Interestingly, the rising popularity of the So Videogames Podcast has meant that I had less time to deep-dive on games and less time to write full reviews, and despite playing a ton of titles over the last twelve months, there were still a large number that I just didn’t have the chance to properly evaluate… I did manage to settle on a top 10, though, and I’m pretty happy where I ended up!
As editor of GameCritics and the co-host of So Videogames Podcast — and also as a person who just generally loves videogames — I strive to sample as much of the industry as I can.
