As is the case most years, 2022 has been packed full of major new releases, with pretty much every single month bringing with it a whole slate of new AAA titles for the masses to dive into. Of course, that, in turn, means that quite often, some of the smaller and less mainstream titles end up falling through the cracks a little bit- many of which deserve way more of your attention. Here, we’re going to talk about a few such relatively smaller single player games of 2022 that may have flown under your radar, but are definitely worth going back to and checking out.
RETURN TO MONKEY ISLAND
Not even in our wildest dreams would we have imagined that 2022 would bring a revival of the Monkey Island franchise, but it damn well did, and what a revival it was. Return to Monkey Island is a fantastic game that perfectly captures everything that made its predecessors so memorable, while also managing to steer clear of the “too much nostalgia” trap. By its very nature, it’s also something of a niche title- but for fans of adventure games (or just good writing and humour), it’s unmissable.
