A Plague Tale: Requiem and Bayonetta 3 are the games of the month of October 2022

A Plague Tale

Rich month also this October 2022, so much so as to make it difficult to make predictions on the election of the games of the month, which in fact finally led to an equal merit between A Plague Tale: Requiem and Bayonetta 3, the two undoubtedly largest productions among those released In these weeks. At this point, we are practically in the middle of one of the periods of maximum flow regarding the videogame market, with November at the gates that promises to bring with it an inordinate amount of new games, but October has been the antechamber to the great, with a truly respectable lineup. The rather clear result of the polls perhaps does not prove it that much, but there have been many possible choices for a considerable amount of tastes and inclinations.

We have seen in short a bit of everything between original titles, followed of famous series, expansions and also quite particular ideas on the indie front or not, in order not to upset anyone.

It was also an important month full of various news also regarding the future, with presentations on Silent Hill, Resident Evil and more, not to mention the enormous caliber releases that, however, often do not find space in these polls, such as the new Call of Duty and Overwatch 2, however, destined to dominate the scene also in the coming months. In short, an October 2022 that once again demonstrates how the videogame landscape is decidedly lively, in view of a pre-Christmas period that will probably be even richer, but beyond all let's go and see how the polls on the most popular titles have gone. appreciated.

The choice of the editorial staff

A Plague Tale: Requiem, a glimpse into a medieval village Close fight in the survey inside the editorial staff of sportsgaming.win, in particular between two games that have contended until the last game title of the month of October 2022, which eventually went to A Plague Tale: Requiem. The stealth action with adventure elements of Asobo Studio has carried forward in a linear way the experience of the previous chapter, but proposing it in a decidedly more advanced and fully "next gen" technical guise, in addition to some additions that have improved the pace and variety general gameplay. However, it is perhaps above all the wonder arising from the medieval setting and the charm of history and characters that guided the judgment of a large part of the editorial staff, who in the end wanted to award Amicia and Hugo the most significant game title of October. >
In second position there is the other game that characterized the head to head at the top: Bayonetta 3, which finally had to give way due to very few votes. The action for Nintendo Switch is a product of the past, for which we must thank PlatinumGames' loyalty to the traditions of the genre and the support of the Kyoto house, given that productions of this type and quality level are very rare today. 'today.

Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, Mario and companions in action Beyond the general spectacle, the new chapter of the witch's adventures is confirmed as technical and selective, equipped with an enjoyable but also particularly challenging combat system , reminding us a little of the origins of the purest videogame action. In third place we find an equal merit between two extremely different games: Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, the new Ubisoft strategic that could not miss this month's podium given how much the first one was also appreciated, and the revelation Vampire Survivors, project started solo by an Italian developer who has practically become a drug for everyone who has been in the way.

Readers' Choice

Bayonetta 3, the witch in action during a fight with a boss Staging a very rare event, the poll aimed at sportsgaming.win readers resulted in a tie in first place, with A Plague Tale: Requiem and Bayonetta 3 having reached the same percentage of preferences. The same votes collected, therefore, by two very different games: the title with a medieval setting of Asobo obviously has its moments of action but it is a more sedate type of gameplay, which alternates more excited moments with other more relaxed phases, in general putting the storytelling and the adventure elements in first position, whereas the PlatinumGames game is instead a pure action. Not that there are moments more dedicated to the story, but Bayonetta 3 is an explosion of glowing action to fill the screen, which leaves no breath for the player busy mastering the deep and technical combat system. Two decidedly different experiences, therefore, but equally valid for readers.

In second place we find Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, one of the most interesting games among the October 2022 releases, being the sequel to a real revelation by Ubisoft.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, a scene from the spectacular single player campaign The game conceived largely by the Milanese division of the publisher continues to conquer the players on Nintendo Switch thanks to its particular "Mariesque" interpretation of the structure typical of the turn-based strategy on the style of XCOM, proving once again a success. In third place, a short distance away, then comes Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which will probably crush all the others in terms of sales on the market, given that it seems to be already achieving absolute record numbers. Outside the podium, preferences spread over a wide range of different games, among which we particularly point out Overwatch 2 and then Scorn, Victoria 3 and Resident Evil Village: Shadows of Rose that stand out more than the others.
