The Games I’m Most Excited For In 2022 Are The Ones I Don’t Know About

Giving a Chance to Some Small Indie Games

In recent years, I haven’t branched out as much when it comes to my gaming tastes. I did venture away from playing AAA games exclusively, but the indies I played were major titles that might as well be AAA at this point, by virtue of their ubiquity, e.g. Paatal Lok, Disco Elysium, Stardew Valley, and so on.

I really love AAA games, but when I sit down to play one, I immediately know what to expect in terms of the overall experience. When I thought about everything that was going to release in 2022, I found myself feeling less excited than usual. Don’t get me wrong, there are some really big, really exciting games coming out this year, like Horizon Forbidden West, elden ring, And Ragnarok, god of war, but none of them allowed me to count the days until their release.

It got me thinking, Am I anything to be excited about when it comes to the Games this year? Well yes, of course it is. If it weren’t for that, I wouldn’t have written about them for a living. As soon as I started thinking about it, I realized that I’m more excited for sports I don’t know about than I do.

There are so many games in the world, and a vast majority of them won’t get even a fraction of the attention even lesser known indie games. The thing is, though, these super small indie games often do some of the most unique and interesting things to advance the game. They tell stories we wouldn’t hear otherwise, and they incorporate experimental mechanics that never made the final cut of a triple-A game. Without all the corporate red tape, small games really shine, and show off the endless potential of what the interactive medium can do.

Most of these super-small games won’t even get a trailer — you’ll have to hear about them through word of mouth, or just actively explore them. While I wish many games of this type had had more chance, there’s something cool about getting into a passion project that someone worked really hard on, but didn’t expect to see. When you snag the commercial side of an art, you know you’re getting someone’s sight, pristine and unobstructed, for better or worse.

This year I plan to be on the lookout for anything and everything that piques my interest. When I see someone posting about their game on Twitter that’s finally over, I want to take a look, or really listen when my friends ask me to watch a game that’s over. They like

There are many wonderful indie festivals and conventions showcasing these types of projects. Reddit is home to some great indie communities where devs post their progress, so I’ll scour those as well. Organizations such as WINGS and GLITCH are invested in funding and publishing diverse indie voices. I have one of those massive itch.io bundles I bought last summer that I haven’t seen yet, so I know there will be great stuff out there too.

With all the big games that are constantly coming out of big studios, it can be easy to forget how much of the gaming industry is small games made by single people or small teams, simply because they love them. Open source tools, and websites like itch.io have made it easier than ever for people to share their work, so I really have no excuse at the moment. Now I look to 2022 as the year I really immerse myself in the indie scene, because although the Indies make up the majority of my “favourite games of all time” list, there’s still plenty to see. Something is there. Looking ahead, I think it’s a pretty safe bet to say that my favorite game of 2022 will be the one I haven’t even heard of yet.
