Our individual Game of the Year articles allow our lovely team of writers to share their personal PS5 and PS4 picks for 2022. Today, it’s staff writer Khayl Adam’s turn.
A remake of the stone-cold SRPG classic, Tactics Ogre: Reborn stands like a colossus over the genre, setting the gold standard for tactical turn-based combat when it was originally released and maintaining that honor years later. keeps With an adult, complex story of political intrigue, different story paths, and a choice of dozens of different classes with which to take to the battlefield, Tactics Ogre: Reborn is in a league of its own.
Trails from Zero offers the kind of JRPG experience that reminds us why we fell in love with the genre in the first place. With a charismatic cast of highly likable characters, an engaging and incredibly well-written narrative to get lost in, and a combat system that’s a cut above the usual fare, Trails from Zero offers a lesser-known adventure that’s well worth it. is doable.
Mount and Blade: Bannerlord is one of the most unique games on PlayStation, a strategic sandbox experience masquerading as a medieval life management sim. It boasts the kind of incredibly large-scale battles and RPG progression that will keep you coming back again and again, giving PlayStation fans a glimpse into the kind of experience usually reserved for solo PC players.
God of War Ragnarok sets a new benchmark for cinematic gameplay experiences, which combined with the game’s crunchy action combat system, make Kratos’ latest adventure one of the most unforgettable of the year. With a level of production almost unparalleled even within Sony’s vaunted suite of first-party studios, Ragnarok is a shiny new jewel in the PlayStation’s already magnificent crown.
The Elden Ring is developer From Software’s magnum opus, representing more than a decade of iterations on the same rock-solid core gameplay loop and system of interlocking mechanics. Haunting, beautiful and utterly captivating, the gaming world ground to a halt when Alden Ring was released back in February and will long live in our collective consciousness as an open world epic without equal.
