The past year has been an excellent year for video game enthusiasts. From console-exclusive titles to multi-platform titles, this year saw a number of exciting releases from both indie developers and the world’s largest game studios. It was also a good year for PS5 console owners, with several new titles really taking advantage of the PS5’s powerful hardware capabilities. Similarly, we also got the following installments of some of the most followed game franchises like Call of Duty and God of War. Here are the five best video games released in 2022 that impressed me the most.
War god Ragnarok
God of War Ragnarok is a must-play game, especially if you own a PS5 gaming console. Please note that the game is also available for PS4. However, if you want to play Ragnarok at 4K resolution with the best graphics quality possible, you can only do so on the PS5.
The game was set to release in 2021, but due to development delays, the game ended up being released in November 2022. It has received very positive response from critics and gamers alike and has now raised some seriously high expectations for the next installment in the God of War series .

While currently limited to the Sony PlayStation platform, the studio is expected to port the same to PC as it recently released the ported version of God of War on the Windows platform. So if you’re a PC gamer and want to play Ragnarok, you might have to wait a few more years.
This was truly one of the most anticipated video games for 2022. And it also won the game of the year award.
