Northeast 2022 Holiday Gift Guide: Level Up With The Latest Games

It’s an understatement to say that this year has been a great year in the world of video games. From big-budget masterpieces to indie breakthroughs, there’s no shortage of great games for 2022 that can make it hard to buy the gamer of your life.

Luckily, News@Northeastern spoke with a group of gaming experts from Northeastern University to help you up your gifting game. You won’t find the big AAA games of 2022 like “Elden Ring” or “God of War Ragnarök” in this freebie guide – there are plenty of posts out there that can attest to that. But if you’re looking for more under-the-radar games, fun tabletop offerings, or the best gaming gear, Northeast College has you covered.

Games, games and more games

The world of video games, like movies, includes everything under the sun, from blockbuster titles to small indie experiences.

“Sleeping Citizen” developped by Gareth Damien Martin, was recognized as one of the best games of the year, big or small, and was high on North East art and design professor Chris Martens’ year-end list. Martens calls “Citizen Sleeper” a narrative-driven cyberpunk game about surviving as a social outcast on a space station. It has light role-playing and resource management and heavy ideas and emotions carried by “incredibly evocative writing and thought-provoking character arcs”.

Martens also recommends the isometric adventure, inspired by Zelda and full of mystery. “Tunic” and “Relax,” a combination of Japanese role-playing game and farming simulator, for those who want to look beyond traditional AAA gaming experiences.
