I’m really curious about the RedFall. I think Arcane have something special.

  1. Elden Ring
  2. Starfield
  3. Total War Warhammer 3
  4. Forza Motorsport

There are others I have my eye on, but I need some gameplay to understand them better and make a final opinion.

I’m sure some folks here will say, “it’s okay”, but halfway through season one I already consider it one of the top 5 shows Netflix has ever had.

  1. Starfield.

  2. A Plague Tale: Requiem.

That’s about it.

Weird West or Evil West?

Not many games I’m anticipating tbh. I’m looking forward to some and excited to see XGS/Bethesda output, but nothing announced I can’t wait for other than Starfield.

Others I would be anticipating if I had consoles to play on would be GoWR & BotW2.

I am super excited for

A Plague Tale Requiem.

I really like the first one despite being limited in scope. This new one looks like Asobo had a much bigger budget so I’m super interested to see what they have been able to do with that.

I’m also curious about Elden Ring and Starfield. I’m not a massive From Software or Bethesda Games Studios fan but I understand these will be big releases. So if they turn out great I will likely play them.

I was also interested in Crossfire X since I love most Remedy games but the recent IGN Preview didn’t sound too hot so I will be cautious with this one.

Forza Motorsport would also be on my list since I played every entry in the series and am a big fan but I think we don’t have a confirmed release date for that and since they helped out with Halo Infinite I could imagine they need more time for Motorsport and the game could slip to 2023.

Elden Ring


Pokemon Legends Arceus




Atomic Heart

Midnight Fight Express

Radio the Universe

Hollow Knight Silksong (lol)

GoW: Ragnarok

Stalker 2


Plague Tale 2

Pentiment (rumored)

  1. Starfield - This is definitely going to win the list. I am beyond excited to explore the world of Starfield once it’s out.
  2. Gotham Knights - I have some concerns about the gameplay, but aside from that, the premise of the story is really interesting with the Court of Owls, and the game looks great. I really hope they can deliver with this game.
  3. AI: The Somnium Files - nirvanA Initiative - I haven’t played the first one yet, but I plan to do so very soon. I’ve enjoyed Spike Chunsoft’s other visual novels, so I’m sure this will be up my alley as well. Glad Spike Chunsoft has decided to put these games on Xbox.
  4. Sonic Frontiers - If they can actually pull it off, this game could be great with the open-world design they are going for. Lots of potential with it, just have to see if they can deliver.
  5. Hogwarts Legacy - Have a few concerns with this one, but regardless, the prospect of a Harry Potter RPG is exciting.
  6. Replaced - The artstyle of this game looks incredible and definitely grabbed my attention.
  7. A Plague Tale: Requiem - Still haven’t gotten to the original, but the game looks amazing from the trailers. Plus, it’s day one on Game Pass, so why wouldn’t I play it?
  8. LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga - This looks to be the most ambitious LEGO game yet, and LEGO games are always good fun.
  9. Slime Rancher 2 - I enjoyed the first game, so this should be some good fun as well.
  10. Endless Dungeon - I’ve enjoyed previous Amplitude games, and the artstyle looks great.

I’m also really excited for Yakuza 8 and Pentiment, but I’m unsure as to whether those will be releasing in 2022.
