Starting the year like we always do…ranking games of last year!

Now you might be asking, “PodCavern, isn’t it a little late to be releasing the best video games of 2022 list when so many websites have already done that in December?”. To that we say, “No”. So join Tuong La and self-proclaimed gaming LEGENDS Angus MacDonald, Ethan Howieson, and Mathew Whalley as they compile all their knowledge and hours of gaming from last year into one mega sized podcast so that they can come up with the Top 5 Video Games of 2022!

Ground Rules

  • Games must have come out in 2022
  • Expansions of games DO count so long as they bring in full game size experiences
  • Remakes of games DO count so long as they add something new, drastic, and is not just an uprezzed version of an older game. (ie counts if the remake was built from the ground up and had some obvious attention of detail added to it) ie Zelda Skyward Sword HD is more or less just an uprezzed version with a few Quality of Life improvements but it’s largely the same game.
  • Free to play games count if they came out in 2022
  • Early access games count but they should feel like more or less full game experiences and not at it’s very early stages of development
