Not gonna lie, its actually a really nice feature. There's a write up on all 50 games and recognition for so many games I loved this year. Learned about a few I'm possibly buying when I get home.

Glad Citizen Sleeper, Pentiment, Kirby and Splatoon all got nice writeups.

I tried Citizen Sleeper, hated it. Fuckin boring man. Also, I've played Powerwash simulator with my daughter, it's a well made game, but putting it ahead of Ragnarok just smacks of odd to me. Again, I genuinely like Powerwash Simulator, but at the end of the day it gets boring in 15 minutes every time I play it. It is, literally, a chore of a game.

Fuckin Polygon man.

Nice to see Citizen Sleeper getting its due.

Still putting it in my top 3 I think.

P.s. Getting annoyed about top 10/50/number here is as stupid and pointless as getting annoyed about a review.

They certainly never got the memo that they have to like exactly what you like.

Tell me you're a xbox fanboy without telling me you're an xbox fanboy.
It's like they make Elden Ring GOTY cause putting Vampire Survivors would be too obvious.

Yes, that’s why the highest rated game of 2022 is their GOTY. Because they’re ‘Xbox fanboys’.

They literally put every Sony exclusive in the list, what more do you want?
Bayonetta 3 and Triangle Strategy missing also.
There was no way in hell Bayo was going to get a mention by Polygon.

If this top ten doesnt prove this is the worst gaming year of all time, i dont know what will.

10. God of War: Ragnarok
9. Powerwash Simulator
8. Pokemon Legends: Arceus
7. Marvel Snap
6. Pentiment
5. Fortnite
4. Vampire Survivors
3. The Curse of the Golden Idol
2. Citizen Sleeper
1. Elden Ring

You're wrong. Vampire Survivors is a REVELATION. Best year ever. (and they are wrong, that was number 1)

You must have been born yesterday to think that this is the worst gaming year of all time

Check GOTY lists from 2012 and 2014 to see what's the meaning of real pain

How does Polygon's list-by-committee to generate clicks prove this was a bad year in gaming?

Better question - on what planet does a top 50 of 2022 not include MW2? And if Fortnite updates count, how did they leave off Cyberpunk (new gen)?

I'm all about Triple A so 95% of these games are lost on me. In any case, any list should be taken with a pinch of salt.

I haven't played Elden Ring nor God of War: Ragnarök but I've been observing this community...

Top 10 List:
10. Whatever you want
9. Whatever you want
8. Whatever you want
7. Whatever you want
6. Whatever you want
5. Whatever you want
4. Whatever you want
3. Whatever you want
2. Whatever you want
1. Elden Ring & God of War: Ragnarök
