Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and Stray are the games of July 2022

In one way or another, July 2022 also proved to be a particularly rich month of releases, despite what should be a physiological summer decline. On the other hand, real 90 pieces have been released, planned as such or emerged as a surprise: in all this, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and Stray have been elected as games of the month of July 2022, to symbolize also in this case the variety of proposals that emerged. during these last weeks.

On the other hand, in this case the results correspond perfectly to those that had emerged from the election of the most anticipated games in July, in a continuity that demonstrates how expectations were well placed, evidently. Most of the titles in the lineup of the month obviously come from the indie sector, as one might expect especially in this period, but there were also large-caliber productions.

In general, what appears evident is that there are no longer those transition periods that were "avoided" by publishers and development teams in order not to risk running into poor sales, as could have been the summer months of the past, and the lineups continue to be rich practically in every period of the year. On the other hand, this is also the period of announcements and news regarding the video game landscape in general, positioned right between the big events of the "non E3" and Gamescom to close the lively videogame summer. So let's take a look at the results of the game's election for July 2022.

The choice of the editorial staff

The phenomenal title of BlueTwelve Studio and Annapurna Interactive beat the runner-up by only one point, but it proved to have remained in the hearts of many around here: much of the charm is obviously exercised by the choice of the protagonist, the major element of identity. of this game, which otherwise stands out above all for the design of the world and the atmospheres. Thanks also to a considerable promotional and media push, Stray found himself being in the spotlight probably more than any other game during July, also in response to the evidently large-caliber production that lurks behind the scenes, of much larger dimensions. large than those that usually characterize an indie product. The fact is that Annapurna's cat has conquered everyone, between PC and PlayStation.

In second place, as was to be expected, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 was placed: the exclusive for Nintendo Switch is very long the most important game of July 2022, but it failed to impose itself against the editorial passion for cats. It had to give up by only one point, thus placing itself on the second step of the podium despite the enthusiastic evaluations that the game has received almost everywhere, including our review of Xenoblade Chronicles 3, as a worthy continuation of the Monolith series that has become a true classic. for Nintendo consoles.

Endling: Extinction is Forever, an image of the game Third place perhaps more unexpected than others, also considering the amount of votes received and the short distance from the first two: on the third step of the podium we find Endling: Extinction is Forever, an eco-themed action adventure game that, arriving quietly, found a lot of fans in the editorial office. Just off the podium we find As Dusk Falls, the narrative adventure of Interior / Night.

The choice of readers

On the other hand, the Monolith RPG for Nintendo Switch is a work of considerable value and certainly the most important and significant game among those released in the month, so the result is clearly deserved and in line with expectations: the new chapter of the series perfects the formula and proposes a new and fascinating choral story, made up of varied and well-characterized characters and a combat system capable of convincingly innovating on the already established basis of the previous chapters. In second place we obviously find Stray, who here received far fewer votes than the first, demonstrating how little competition there is between the two games.

It is also interesting to note the other results, which differ mostly from the editorial vote: in third place we find Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels, the expansion of the arcade racing game by Playground Games, which proposes the theme already seen in the third chapter but further enhanced.

In fourth position, also in this case, there is As Dusk Falls, the interesting narrative adventure that tells, in a rather original way also as a graphic style adopted, a complex dramatic story about the intertwined destinies of two families, starting from the years' 90 in North America. Little else to report below this, with only F1 22 and Live a Live emerging slightly above the other competitors.
