Game of the Year: If you were hoping for a new board game in 2020, you could rest assured that it will be published by the close of 2022. The online funding platform Kickstarter has dominated the board game industry because it allows designers to effectively find their audience before production.
However, the sector became tangled up in delays due to pandemic frustrations, zero-Covid closures in Chinese factories, and shipping costs.
But now, thanks to the backlog of games and the creativity of designers who were forced to stay at home, a plethora of brand-new board games are available, ranging from simple and kid-friendly to complex and weighty.
Tactics Ogre: Reborn
Tactics Ogre: Reborn, a remake of a timeless SRPG classic, towers over its peers like a titan, having established itself as the premier example of tactical turn-based combat since its initial release.
Tactics Ogre: Reborn stands out from the crowd with its mature, intricate story of political intrigue, branching story paths, and the ability to choose from dozens of different classes to take into battle.

Trails from Zero
The kind of JRPG experience provided by Trails from Zero is precisely what made us fans of the genre in the first place.
Trails from Zero offers a lesser-known adventure that is well worth undertaking, thanks to its charismatic cast of highly likable characters, engaging and incredibly well-written narrative to get lost in, and a combat system that is a cut above the usual fare.

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord
One of the most original PlayStation titles is Mount & Blade: Banerlord, a strategic sandbox experience disguised as a medieval life management sim.
It offers PlayStation fans a taste of the type of experience typically reserved for PC players, with massive battles and the sort of RPG progression that will keep you coming back again and again.
2022 introduced us to an impressive lineup of diverse and entertaining games. As the year comes to a close, some of our developers are looking back on their favorites.

God of War Ragnarok
Kratos’ latest adventure is one of the most memorable of the year, thanks to God of War Ragnarok‘s groundbreaking cinematic gameplay experiences and crunchy action combat system.
Ragnarok is the newest crown jewel in PlayStation’s already ostentatious crown, boasting a level of production nearly unrivaled even within Sony’s vaunted suite of first-party studios.

Developer FromSoftware’s magnum opus, Elden Ring, features a decade’s worth of refinement to a tried-and-true gameplay loop and system of interlocking mechanics.
Elden Ring, released in February, was an open-world epic without equal; it was haunting, beautiful, and completely enthralling, bringing the gaming world to a halt.
