Stevivor’s Best Game of 2022: Elden Ring

The clear favourite.

This is it! The votes have been tallied and we’re ready to award the Best Game of 2022.

As you’d likely expect, this was a toss up between two titles, and Elden Ring managed to come out on top.

As Ben and I frequently recountElden Ring came out in February and has captured our attention for the entire year. When we’re not thinking about or playing Elden Ring directly, we’ve bounced back into previous FromSoftware titles and have a newfound appreciation for them.

Luke called it way back when as well, saying “it’s an incredible experience and will be one of the best games you’ll play this year,” as part of his review.

Elden Ring is available on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4 and PS5; it’s previously won GOTY 2022 awards for Best RPG and Best Direction.
