The year 2022 was a goldmine of fantastic games for consoles, computers and smartphones.
The first quarter of the year took the gaming community by storm with releases from major studios combined with hidden indie gems you can find dirt cheap.
First on the list is the love child of game director Hidetaka Miyazaki and famed fantasy author George RR Martin.
Developer FromSoftware has managed to surpass its previous masterpieces with the massive open-world action RPG.
Elden Ring possesses the same brutal difficulty yet rewarding gameplay just like its predecessors. With the steep learning curve and mysterious atmosphere, players will traverse the world of Lands Between for hours.
Elden Ring is available on Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
One of the most surprising games to come out this year, Stray lets you play as a cat in a post-apocalyptic city inhabited by robots.
The gameplay consists of cat-specific platforms and tasks like knocking things off the edge, scratching doors, jumping and running around.
It’s not as action-packed as the other games, but it gave players a glimpse of how cats live their lives.
Stray is available on Playstation 4, Playstation 5 and Windows PC.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus
Nintendo and Game Freak changed things up (no pun intended) with Pokemon Legends: Arceus for the Nintendo Switch.
The game allowed players to roam freely in Hisui, the bygone era of the Sinnoh region, blended with the core elements of past Pokémon games.
Pokémon game fans loved the move Nintendo took as it brought a breath of fresh air to the game.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus is available for Switch
OlliOlli World by Roll7 is a lively, cute skateboard platformer that challenges players to perform many gravity-defying moves.

Enjoy OlliOlli World’s cool soundtrack and simple control scheme and make sure you break your own record.
OlliOlli World is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch.
Wordle is a simple word guessing puzzle that is updated every 24 hours. His greatest strength is his community spirit.
