My Top Five Games of 2022

Based on how much joy they brought me, not on objective greatness.

  1. Kirby and the Forgotten Land
  2. Vampire Survivors (which according to my Steam Replay accounted for fully 50% of my Steam play time this year)
  3. Star Trek Prodigy: Supernova
  4. Shadows Over Loathing
  5. The Last Campfire

(I spent so much less time playing games this year that I didn’t really have enough to fill out the usual ten.)

Honorable mentions to Inscryption and The Fall as other games I finished and didn’t hate.

Most anticipated game for 2023:

  1. Star Trek: Resurgence

Special award for joy that comes less from the game itself and more from the shared daily habit of playing with Allie, plus what the game means and enables:

  1. Wordle
  2. dordle
