We may be getting a little ahead, but Elden Ring We believe will be the game of the year for many gamers around the world. We would even see him win this honorary title at the next Games Awards ceremony at the end of the year. Developed by the studios behind the saga Dark Souls, Elden Ring is an open-world RPG that has revolutionized the industry by bringing us epic combat, a mysterious story and an extremely well-honed evolution system.

If it is not to be put in everyone’s hands – complete beginners will find it difficult to find their account – it has nevertheless been able to sneak into many homes as the promise of a grandiloquent adventure was great. And for good reason, its narration was partly thought out by George RR Martin, the great writer behind the saga. Game of Thrones. Elden Ring is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.

What do we love our red-haired hunter with a big heart. After a first opus released in 2017, Aloy returns in Horizon Forbidden West, one of the most anticipated PS5 (and PS4) titles of the year.

Unknown to many people, Tunic is an indie game that hands down all the praise on earth. This is an RPG in which you play as a little fox, who must explore a mysterious land. You start with nothing, and initially have little equipment, but as you brave the dangers that come your way, you will learn, collect items… and die.

Never mind, you just have to start over, and do better. Far from being as punitive as it looks, Tunic is a game that takes you from beginning to end as the possibilities are great, and its atmosphere enchanting. It’s a game with a very calm atmosphere and yet can be epic at times. It is playable on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox Game Pass, and PC, but will also be available in September on PlayStation consoles.

Nintendo Switch Sports

We could not fail to mention the return of this video game monument. After Wii Sports, we are entitled to Nintendo Switch Sports, which signs a great evolution of the game of our childhood. On the program, six different disciplines, including the famous bowling, tennis and chambara, but also football, volleyball and badminton.

If you won’t go so far as to sweat, we promise you at least long hours of fun with these six sports, as well as their variations, and the online mode! So certainly, we would have greatly appreciated more disciplines, but all the modernization of this legendary franchise as well as the potential of the game make us say that it is one of the best titles of this year. You guessed it, it’s only available on Nintendo Switch.
