5 Games I Finally Want to Play in 2022

I did this a few years ago and made close to 0 attempts to actually play the games mentioned.  If I recall correctly I believe I played one game to completion but I may be misremembering.  So why should I believe that this list will be any different?  In the last few years I have tried many games from my backlog and even dived back in to games that I have started but failed to finish before.  Perhaps I have grown as a person or maybe I have just been in the mood for the games I did try.  Whatever the reason I think I may actually accomplish something from this list.  

Another Final Fantasy game

A black baby Chocobo from Final Fantasy XV is the centre of the image. There is some dirt and grass around it. A small section of a white fence is in the background.

I was going to name a specific one but it probably isn’t important to choose a specific one right now.  I know I want to play 13 and the sequels, or perhaps finish 9 or maybe even play 8 or 7… and so on.  For me I just hope I can find another Final Fantasy with characters I can fall in love with.  Oh and see more Chocobos of course! 

Kingdom Hearts 

Everything about Kingdom Hearts makes it sound like something I would love.  Disney characters, RPG and many hours of gaming to be had. Yet I still haven’t ventured in, partially due to the daunting nature of these games since there are so many.  I just want to start and see how things go. If I love it then fantastic and if not then at least I have (finally) tried it for myself.

Pokémon Sword/Shield

I picked this up well after release at some point last year and haven’t yet played it.  This will be a great game to play this year for a few reasons, one being it will give my Switch some extra love.  Additionally, and importantly, I haven’t played it yet.  So I’m looking forward to meeting the new regional Pokémon and seeing what the adventure brings. 


In an effort to show that I am not solely interested in long (J)RPGs, I thought I should mention one of the VR games I’m most excited to try. Moss has such an adorable main character, a mouse named Quill, and is meant to be a fun action-adventure puzzle game which has been on my to play list for a while. Since getting more regular use of the VR last year I’ve been meaning to start this up so hopefully this year I do. Also with a sequel in the works it is a good time to play this one!

The Witness

I remember starting this years back but didn’t get too far (maybe around an hour or so) as I got distracted. However, it is a game that I keep thinking about so I am hoping I can make my way through the many puzzles and see how far I can get before resorting to lots of pen and paper drawings of puzzles.

Are there any specific games you hope to get off your backlog this year?

  1. Those are some good picks! I would like to play Final Fantasy IX as I haven’t ever played it and I would like to get into the Legend of Heroes series but I’ve been told they are quite big JRPGs.

    1. I’ve heard they are big games but haven’t played any Legend of Heroes games myself. If you do play any from that series I hope you enjoy them! I could have just done a list of (J)RPGs so I did want a little bit of variety in what I hope to play.

  2. It’s become almost a recurring joke at this point, but I could say Persona 5 and The Witcher 3 for 4th year in a row or so…
    Otherwise, for Final Fantasy games I’d probably go with FFX or FFVI – ones I’ve been meaning to play through for some time. I also want to get back to Cyberpunk 2077 shortly. No surprises here…plenty of RPGs to play. 😄

  3. The Witness is a really worthwhile experience, I highly recommend it. Super contemplative puzzler with really rich, colorful visuals, even though you’ll be staring at tablet puzzles a majority of the time haha
