10. Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom
From the title, you already can guess that there was a first NI NO KUNI. But if you haven’t played that one, you need not worry because you can go right ahead and play the Nino Kuni 2.
This sequel is super easy to get the hang of, and you would enjoy playing it once you gain access to it for the first time. Ni no Kuni II is a Japanese role-playing game that is partly inspired by the works of Studio Ghibli.

Of course, it comes with a fairy tale storyline that gives its Heroes a purpose. This game deserves the 10th spot on our list of the best games in 2022.
9. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
If you remember when Nintendo released Super Mario 3D World on Wii U, you will agree with me that it was One console that barely anybody owned.
But that’s not what we want to discuss. The makers of that game added a handful of levels for experiments, and those levels starred the perennial Mario sidekick Toad.
The experimental levels featured beautiful little puzzle boxes that required players to guild the waddling toad through to get some stars.
Well, it happens that Nintendo saw that idea as an opportunity to create a full game called Captain Toad: treasure tracker. Unfortunately, this fantastic game was also doomed on the Wii U.
With the availability of this game on the switch; it has gone from being one of Nintendo’s projects that never got the right attention, to a success story that is reaching the audience it truly deserves.
Treasure Tracker is an exciting puzzle adventure game that is confounding and relaxing, thanks to Nintendo’s devilish and super smart level designs.
You would also find the game very charming as Captain Toad, and his girlfriend Toadette celebrate every treasure they successfully collect with beautiful smiles.
Even though it is a game that is very easy to understand, we guarantee that you will get addicted to playing it once you try it for the first time.
8. Lumines Remastered
There have been many sequels and ports for the 2004 LUMINES, but none of them match the PlayStation portable original which is a marriage of high fidelity graphics, bright charm, and of course jumping Japanese dance tracks. The fact that the original Lumines was very portable made it even more enjoyable.
The Lumines Remastered, which is the franchise’s most recent entry, has found its way to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and even the Nintendo switch.
You will most definitely enjoy playing the Nintendo Switch version most because it captures the best feeling of the original, only that it comes with improved visuals.
All versions of this game come with the “trans vibration” which is a term that was popularized by the series creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi with another of his precious games Rest.
Also, it is possible to pair controllers to Lumines remastered and also turn them into vibrating nodes. So, if you find yourself humming in rhythm with the game you’re playing, be assured that it is normal because many other people are doing the same thing.
Frostpunk is one game that will give you a deep sense of satisfaction and dread, that will leave you wondering how a city management game could make you feel that way.
Let’s say this is one of those games that prepares you for Leadership as your decisions affect the city’s economy, the happiness of the Citizens, and everything that can either lead to life or death consequences.
This game is going to put you on edge throughout your playtime, so get ready to enjoy, learn, and introduce this one to your friends. There is no doubt that frost punk deserves the 7th spot on this list.
6. Octopath Traveler

5. My Child Lebensborn
My Child Lebensborn is Lan’s amazing game that revolves around the concept of the consequences of war and the pain of bullying. The game is set in Norway back in 1950 and features A Tale of a boy born during World War II. From an occupying German soldier and a local mother.

4. Mario Tennis Aces
Mario Tennis Aces find its way to the list with several caveats. In all of the Mario Sports series most especially the Gameboy advanced series and the Gameboy Colour this game story mode isn’t half as rich as any of its predecessors. It is more of a tutorial than it is an inventive role-playing adventure.
Even though this game has lots of flaws, it is one that you will enjoy a whole lot as it brings every fight with a fantastic rush of adrenaline for the player.
3. The Messenger
The messenger is one game that you would enjoy playing whenever you’re on vacation, mainly because that is the only time you can sit in front of the game all day and not worry about having to do anything.

Fallout 76 is one game that understands that an open world deserves to be rewarded, not precisely in terms of finding new quests of financial resources, but because exploration itself is an act that needs to be engaging.
This game is one with so much good content that you really would enjoy experiencing. Fallout 76 features tons of quests, enemies, outfits, buildings, and of course, dealing with some form of violence.
