Didn't play any 2022 release, my pick of the OP would be Dorfromantik—I will definitely pick that up at some stage. Don't have an interest in any of the others.

My best recent games—released within last 5 years—I played in 2022:
1 Command & Conquer™ Remastered Collection
2 Sid Meier’s Civilization® VI
3 Far Cry® 6
 
The only 2022 release I played is Total War: Warhammer 3, which is at least as good as Warhammer 2, which I played for 1.5 years or so.

(Oh, also Marvel Snap, but that didn't interest me much).

Looking through other games released in 2022, there's a couple of sequels I expect I would like as well:

- The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe
- Return to Monkey Island
- The Witcher 3
- Warhammer 40,000: Darktide
- Tactics Ogre: Reborn

Oops. I forgot TWW3. That would definitely be one of my picks.

Christ i barely remember what i played or even enjoyed last year. The only thing i played that was released in 2022 was chivarly 2 but that was on epic a year before so doesn't account.

But regardless, what games stood out that i enjoyed last year? in no particular order:


return of the obra dinn
legend of zelda a link to 2 worlds.
Huntdown
dishonored 2
Pillars of eternity
Deathwar 3030
Glass masquerade (surprisingly).
Yakuza kiwami 2 - technically still playing but started in december.

So yeah, out of the games i played, those were the only games that i would consider my top games of 2022 that i played.

There were a few doom wads that deserve an honourable mention but more mods then games.

Will i get to play more good games in 2023? we'll see. Part of the problem even good games these days don't seem to illict much joy these days.
