10 Upcoming Games I’m Looking Forward to in 2022
Games releasing in 2022 that I’m looking forward to!
I can’t believe it’s almost 2022. It’s so surreal seeing game releases with the next year in the release date and even more so as you get closer to the end of the year. I decided to show the top 10 games that’s releasing somewhere in 2022 (well, hopefully) before we roll over to the next year.
To be honest, I haven’t played any Bayonetta game…yet. Though I love Bayonetta (the character) and she’s a Smash character that I actively tried to learn despite not fitting with my preferred fighting style (I wasn’t good, but I’m not good at Smash anyway). Nonetheless, I got excited when I tuned into the Nintendo Direct and it was the trailer it was showing. Bayonetta looks so cute with her new hairdo and the game looks like it would be a lot of fun. Luckily, I do own the first Bayonetta game so I can play that to see if I like the games before getting 2 and later 3. We’ll just have to see.
This is another game that I’m looking forward to despite not playing the previous game in the series. Well, in the soft reboot era of God of War. I absolutely loved the original God of War games so it’s not surprising that I’d want to play more with our boy Kratos, but I haven’t quite gotten around to playing the 2018 game. When I saw the trailer for Ragnarok, it definitely pushed the thought of playing it before this sequel comes out as it looks really good.
This may just be a simple narrative cooking game, but sometimes the simple ones are the ones you look forward to a lot. I lowkey love cooking games, and when Venba was shown in a Wholesome Showcase, I knew I would love it. I was a bit bummed that it was delayed, but fingers crossed it gets released in 2022.
I like RPGs, but the one aspect that got me interested in tERRORbane was the fact that the developer is someone that you’re fighting against alongside the bugs that plague this game’s universe. And trying out the demo showed that the meta aspect doesn’t step to the annoying side (at least, not during the beginning) which is important for a game centered all around it. I enjoyed the demo and I can’t wait to see the rest of the game.
A game where you aim to cheat at card games? Sign me up! I may totally fail at the various techniques that card cheaters use, but this games would be a great way to live out that fantasy.
This is in the category that I’m looking forward to it, but I most likely won’t be able to get far into it. I’m not too sure how the difficulty will be here (*cries in missing the playtest by an hour*), but if their other games are any indication paired with an open world? Yeah I’d either get stuck or get so sidetracked.
This is in the “I’m looking forward to it, but I’m not optimistic about it” category. Pokemon has become a series where I’m waiting to hear what others think before going out to get it and this even extended to New Pokemon Snap. While I do want Pokemon Legends to be good, I’m going to remain skeptical until the game releases and we have it in our hands.
I love Harry Potter and honestly, it’s been dying for a really good game. For those of that that grew up on the books and saw the movies, we all imagined ourselves going to Hogwarts and I would absolutely love being able to make my own character in a Harry Potter game, learning spells, and going on dangerous adventures. I’d probably wait a bit on this or at least tune into the game’s news before picking it up so I don’t have another Cyberpunk 2077 hype train situation and waste money.
I loved The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince, so when I heard a rumor that the dev team developed another game and it was going to be localized, I was so happy. And even more so when it was confirmed maybe a day or two after by NIS America themselves. It sounds like this will be another sweet game from the dev team and I’m confident that I’ll love this
Okay, I might not actually finish Breath of the Wild, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be looking forward to its sequel.
Well, that’s the top 10 games I’m looking forward to releasing next year. Here’s to another year of playing games and reviewing them.
