The year 2022 has been a gold mine for amazing games for consoles, computers, and smartphones.
The first quarter of the year took the gaming community by storm with releases from major studios combined with hidden indie gems you can find dirt cheap.

One of the most surprising games that came out this year, Stray lets you play as a cat in a post-apocalyptic city inhabited by robots.
The gameplay consists of platforming and doing tasks specifically for a feline, like knocking things off the ledge, scratching doors, jumping, and running around.
It is not as action-packed as the other games, but it gave players a glimpse of how cats live their lives.
Stray is available on Playstation 4, Playstation 5, and Windows PC.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus
Nintendo and Game Freak switched things up (no pun intended) with its Pokemon Legends: Arceus for the Nintendo Switch.
The game allowed players to roam freely in Hisui, the bygone era of the Sinnoh region mixed with the core elements of past pokemon games.
Fans of pokemon games loved the step Nintendo took as it gave the game a fresh breath of air.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus is available on Switch
Roll7’s OlliOlli World is a vibrant, cute skateboarding platformer that makes players pull off many gravity-defying moves.

Wordle is a simple word-guessing puzzle that refreshes every 24 hours, its biggest strength is its communal power.
