5 PC Games From 2022 You Have to Play
Even though the year is far from over, here are 5 PC games from 2022 you have to play right now, if you can, that is.
Since this year is full of bangers, I’m going to start off this thing by listing the 5 that are must-play video game experiences. Later down the line, we’re going to cover by genre and so on. But these are games that, no matter what kind of genre you generally like, are ones that you need to experience in your life at least once. If you consider yourself a true gamer, that is.
So, the first of the 5 PC games that you have to play from 2022 is Stray, an insanely charming adventure game where you play as a cat. Yes, it doesn’t get better than being a four-legged fluffy animal that just pounces around.
Genre: Adventure, Exploration, Cyberpunk
Release date: July 19, 2022
Price tag: 26,99€
Stray charmed me with its gameplay right from the start. It’s not a very, let’s say complicated game with a lot of in-depth mechanics. But it’s a game where you play as a cat, and the animations and its traversal mechanics are so buttery smooth.
You’re a cat, you’re supposed to move around the place with grace. Stray hits those points, and its fantastic cyberpunk setting definitely helps with that. The world is full of interesting things to discover and experience, and the story is, well, quite heavy at times.
Which wasn’t all that expected from an adventure game where you play as a cute cat. It’s quite the perfect game to just unwind and hop around the place and glance at the huge world that’s surrounding you. A must-play game when you have a free Sunday and you just want to be a cat.

Where to even start with Elden Ring, FromSoftware’s latest title, and some say it’s their best work yet. It’s another Souls-like, and I’m sure everyone already knows what kind of genre that is.
The monsters hit hard, the world is very vague and dark, the bosses will make you hate your life due to their highly unpredictable attack patterns, and the story is mostly super depressing and grim. Everything gamers love these days, packed into one dense and vast open world.
Elden Ring on PC is a superb experience when you want a challenging and content-packed RPG. There’s a ton of bosses to slay, areas to see, and builds to explore. It’s one of the most diverse FromSoftware titles, their most experimental yet, but it was met with immense praise from both players and industry reviewers.

God of War

Price tag: 49,99€
Ah, yes, the arrival of God of War on the PC. The franchise cemented itself in history as one of the most brutal, violent, and grim action brawlers from the old PS era. You followed the story of one man on a path of destruction and vengeance.
But then we get God of War, which is basically God of War 4, where we have Kratos as a father. He’s still very violent, and God of War still has gameplay that packs a punch. But he also has a son, is dealing with grief and tackling on the threat of the Norse gods.
God of War’s gameplay is very reminiscent of the Dark Souls game, so the new game differs a lot from the original trilogy. That doesn’t stop it from being extremely challenging, grueling, and above all else, fun. It also features one of the most complex, detail-heavy fantasy worlds in the history of modern video games. It’s quite a treat to look at too, so you can expect a lot of superb visual fidelity from the game as well.

When it comes to the last of the 5 PC games from 2022 that you have to try out, V Rising is one of those rare PC gems that pop up every now and then. It’s an open-world survival game where you play as a vampire. The premise is pretty simple. Where the game excels is at its progression. Kill a boss, obtain their powers, and start preparing for the next and harder boss. V Rising manages to make its grinding process enjoyable and rewarding.
That’s without taking into account the PvP elements, which I mostly ignored because I came to this game for an enjoyable vampire simulation experience. This is one of those rare games where day and night cycles play a big role in the gameplay. This makes sense, considering V Rising takes as many vampire mythology elements as it can and integrates them into the game. V Rising is still in its Early Access phase, so it can only get better from there.
