Every year, thousands of games are released. Today we are here to tell you the ten best video games of 2022. This list is based on the judgment of an international show ‘The Game Awards. The game that has got the most number of nominations deserves to be called the Best Game.
It was developed by Sloclap and is set in modern-day China. Sifu is an intense close combat action game. In the story, the protagonist’s father is killed, and to seek revenge, he journeys to different locations and fights. The unique aspect of this game is that we don’t die when our lives are used up. Instead, we come alive after a few seconds. However, we grow older by a few years after each death. We begin at the age of 20 and we can go up to the age of 70 because every time we die we get older.
We can’t fight properly and if we die at the age of 70, our game restarts from the beginning. This is why we should not take the quick revival feature for granted and we should play carefully. Its graphics are very smooth and watching the combat moves and scenes make us feel as if we are watching a Hollywood movie. This is why it has been nominated for both the ‘Best action’ and ‘Fighting Game’ awards (Best Video Games of 2022).
