Pokémon Legends: Arceus and God of War PC are the most anticipated games of January 2022

Pokémon Legends

Let's kick off what should be an exceptional year for gaming releases with the first survey on what are the most anticipated games of the month, from which two parallel results emerged with Pokémon Legends: Arceus and God of War for PC as the most popular games. expected in January 2022. With the move to February of Elden Ring, the first month of the year automatically loses a prominent candidate, thus leaving the field open to games that, in any case, are by no means secondary in importance. In the face of a truly stellar February, however, it is inevitable to see this January 2022 only as an introduction to the fireworks that are expected over the course of the next year, in a remarkable continuation of the qualitative and quantitative level also shown at the end of 2021. .

The great productions of Xbox Game Studios, which characterized the finale of the year just ended, therefore leave the baton to various third party titles and the first hits of PlayStation Studios for 2022.

These begin as early as January, to a lesser but significant extent, with the launch of a couple of PC conversions that should still appeal to a good amount of users, although the response from the public on the Windows platform is never easily predictable, given that the results between console and PC can be significantly different on some types of games. In any case, between the Sony and Pokémon Arceus games, most of the attention of the public and critics is concentrated for this very first start of 2022, waiting to see the 90 pieces that are expected as early as February and will continue then. for a good part of the year.

The most anticipated by the editors

God of War is also coming to PC in what could be its best version According to the internal vote of the editorial staff, the most anticipated game of January 2022 turns out to be God of War in the PC version. Although many have already played it on PlayStation, the Sony Santa Monica action game originally released in 2018 has obviously remained in the hearts of many and there is also a certain curiosity to be able to try it at its best technical form, taking advantage of the potential offered. state-of-the-art hardware (where possible). In any case, the win came in the photo finish against the usual Pokémon Legends: Arceus, who finished second only by a whisker. Also in this case the good base of fans of the series present in these parts has counted, but not only: the promised innovations brought by this particular chapter, with its digression from open world action RPG, have intrigued even those who are not normally too attracted from the pocket monsters of Nintendo, waiting to try it firsthand.

In the third place of the most anticipated of January 2022 we find a tie between Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Extraction, the new chapter of the tactical shooter from Ubisoft, and Windjammers 2, the return of a classic from the Neo Geo era revised for modern times by DotEmu, with an operation similar to others carried out by the French team in the past.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Extraction offers an interesting sci-fi digression Two games obviously very different but which have competed for a good dose of expectations from the members of the editorial staff, perhaps placed as second choices but nevertheless emerged among the titles able to generate greater interest: the first obviously counts the excellent experience already gained on Rainbow Six Siege, with excellent premises for the new sci-fi interpretation of the series, while on the second they played a mixture of nostalgia for the original Data East of 1994 and the excellent skills demonstrated by DotEmu already with Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap and Streets of Rage 4.

The most awaited by readers

Pokémon Legends: Arceus takes us to the ancient Hisui region Before examining the results of the individual games, it should be noted that the survey proposed to the readers of sportsgaming.win shows a not really strong interest in the releases of this month, given that the most voted choice was the infamous "None". However, we can still draw up the usual ranking by putting this item aside.

The most anticipated game of January 2022 in this case is Pokémon Legends: Arceus, certainly one of the most important products among those expected in the rich year that has just begun. For many years we have been discussing how Game Freak too often limits itself to carrying out its task without too much momentum, counting on the guaranteed success of the Pokémon series, which is regularly reconfirmed, but in this case we could be facing an important evolutionary step for the brand from a videogame point of view. This spin-off, in fact, presents a truly new setting and very interesting ideas on the gameplay front, with an interpretation more akin to the action RPG and a truly open world setting. The curiosity to see how the team has fared is really great and the game can only be one of the most anticipated of this season.

Not far behind, in second position we find here God of War in the PC version: it is, therefore, the opposite situation compared to that seen in the editorial survey, with the first two positions reversed.

Uncharted: Collection - Legacy of Thieves offers a compilation of some chapters from the Naughty Dog series It is likely that many readers who have already played the Santa Monica title to the fullest on PS4 are much less willing to buy back the game on PC only to be able to take advantage of the most powerful hardware and it is understandable. In any case, God of War still managed to gain an important position even within this interesting January 2022, regardless of the runs already completed years ago. For the third position we have to go down a lot in terms of percentage of votes, and we find a tie between two other conversions on PC, demonstrating how this platform is destined to receive the most attention this month: Monster Hunter Rise and Uncharted Collection: L 'Legacy of the Thieves, the latter also available on PS5 with a compilation of the fourth chapter and respective spin-off of the Naughty Dog series.
