strictly speaking of games that were just released in 2022 and not a day before and while restricting it to steam only so to help narrow down this list as there's been a plethora of titles released on sites like newsgrounds and itchio and in no real order. I'd personally say these two games are the best to play at the time of this post:
It depends on the genre which you like more, but from today's trends, the most hype games so far have been Lost Ark and Elden Ring. I didn't try Elden Ring yet, but according to the critics, it's a 9.5/10 game, so maybe I should give it a try. The games which I like the most are those which can give me drawing ideas and inspiration. Games are my second inspiration source and where I see what other people are doing and try it by myself.
