God of War Ragnarok: Second GOTY of 2022
While Elden Ring won the Game of the Year award, God of War Ragnarok doesn’t deserve it, as it won 6 awards, from best action-adventure game to best story. It is a sequel to the game that came out in 2018 and therefore continues the story of Kratos and Atreus. This time you will have access to nine kingdoms of Midgar, as opposed to 6 in the previous work. If you own a PlayStation console, this is simply a must-have for late 2022.
Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart: A arcade game worthy of a Pixar movie
Ratchet & Clank is a license from the studio Insomniac Games, which has been around since the PlayStation 2. On PS5, the famous lombax is back in the Rift Apart episode, where he will discover that he is not the only one. is alive of its kind. This game takes full advantage of Sony’s next-generation console performance and architecture, as thanks to the SSD you’ll be able to switch between worlds without loading times. Then visually, it almost looks like a Pixar movie. We love it!
Spider-Man Miles Morales: a taste before the second episode
Spider-Man Miles Morales is one of the first games to launch on the PlayStation 5. This is a sequel to the first opus released on PS4 in September 2018, where this time you play Miles Morales instead of Peter Parker. The island of Manhattan has changed a bit as it is covered in snow and thanks to the addition of ray tracing, it has become even more beautiful than before. Thanks to the SSD, loading times are no more, making the adventure smoother than before. However, don’t expect to spend a long time flying from canvas to canvas, as the adventure is completed in about eight hours.
Return: game time loop
Returnal is one of the first exclusives to accompany the PlayStation 5 launch. Housemarque studio is behind this little nugget with a demanding but very enjoyable gameplay. Your character Selenne Vallos is stuck in a time loop. You’ll also have to redouble your efforts to cancel it at the risk of starting over again and again. True die and try again, these kind of games are not for all players because you need to know how to push your limits with a lot of patience like Dark Souls.
Demon’s Souls: for those who like to die many times
Demon’s Souls is a remake of the PS3 game of the same name released on February 5, 2009. The original experience hasn’t changed, so understand that it’s still as challenging as ever. Just tweaked to look amazing on PS5. It was also the first exclusive of Sony’s next-gen console at launch, with a truly stunning image despite the lack of ray tracing. If you’ve recently played or finished Elden Ring, From Software’s latest game, you might want to give it a try. However, note that DS is very different from ER as you cannot advance in the game unless you beat the boss in front of you. Good luck!
Stray: The best indie game of 2022
Stray is a game where you control a cat in a post-apocalyptic universe where humans have all been replaced by robots that repeat the same behaviors in a city with an enchanting atmosphere. The game, developed by the French from the Montpellier studio, has been awarded twice by the Game Awards to designate it as the best independent title of 2022. It doesn’t have a long lifespan, but the adventure is worth the trip, especially if you have a cat at home.
The Last of Us Part 1: Ellie and Joel’s iconic adventures in 4K
The Last of Us is one of Sony PlayStation’s juiciest franchises. Indeed, this is the first video game from the Japanese firm, which will soon receive the rights to be adapted into a television series, on January 15 next year, exclusively on HBO. The title was released on June 14, 2013 on the PS3. It was so advanced that it mocked the next generation of consoles, here the PS4. Yes, it was hard to see the graphical difference between the two consoles since the game was already great. It then earned the rights to an even more unusual sequel in 2020 that had the same effect as the first episode, but this time with the PS5. In short, this A to Z remake of Part 1 is a must-have, especially if you haven’t done it on PlayStation 3.
