The Best Games of 2022 | December Final Update
We present the ultimate best games released in 2022. Throughout the year, we've been selecting the best games, and now, near the end of the year, the list is finally complete!
Xenoblade Chronicles 3
- Release date: July 29
- Genre: jRPG
- Developer: Monolith Soft
- Platform: Nintendo Switch
- Our rating: 9/10
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is probably one of those games that didn't meet with as great popularity or appreciation they deserved. In the context of 2022, however, the game received good scores and favorable reviews from fans of the jRPG genre and beyond. Xenoblade 3 tells the story of a conflict between two nations in a world that combines science-fiction and fantasy. We follow the fate of six heroes thrown in midst of this turmoil.
The game is captivating with its open world, which has plenty activities to offer, and the plot itself takes us on a real roller-coaster of emotions. This is a production made on a grand scale that will allow people to spend hundreds of hours in it, rewarding their curiosity during exploration. In addition, the gameplay itself works well, especially the combat system, which encourages experimentation and promotes usage of the available attacks and skills. It's a pity that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is only available on Switch!
With over 70 hours of playtime—a lot more if you want to unlock everything the game has to offer—Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is a hearty game that gives you a lot to chew on. Play it for yourself and the game will reward you with an emotional story, lovable characters, and a soundtrack that will stick with you longer than it took to see the credits roll.
