In its latest issue, Famitsu revealed the results of the top 20 games of 2022 as voted on by Japanese developers, celebrities, and more. This is a yearly tradition for the magazine.

A few Nintendo-published games made the list, including Splatoon 3 – which just missed the top spot. Pokemon held two spots with Pokemon Legends: Arceus and Scarlet / Violet.

The full list is as follows:

  1. Elden Ring
  2. Splatoon 3
  3. God of War Ragnarok 
  4. Pokemon Scarlet / Violet 
  5. Stray
  6. Cult of the Lamb
  7. Tactics Ogre: Reborn
  8. Vampire Survivors
  9. Pokemon Legends: Arceus
  10. Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak
  11. Inscryption
  12. Gran Turismo 7
  13. Horizon Forbidden West
  14. Needy Streamer Overload
  15. Genshin Impact
  16. Dragon Quest X Offline
  17. Uma Musume Pretty Derby
  18. Kirby and the Forgotten Land
  19. Apex Legends
  20. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II

Note that those who voted weren’t necessarily limited to what came out this year. Since they were asked to vote on trendy games and what they were personally into, that’s why something like Uma Musume Pretty Derby made the list.
