Games of the Year 2022: The Playlist

My #GamesOfTheYear articles exist so that I can look back in 1, 2, 5, 10 years from now and remember what I thought about a particular game when it was released. The goal is to judge them against their contemporary competitors which hopefully allows me to understand how they have held up over time. But I also like to keep an informal list of every game I played that year so I can see how the games of the past compare to the games of today.
