2022 is set to bring a ton of blockbuster titles to our screens. From Horizon Forbidden West to Gran Turismo 7, God of War Ragnorok to Starfield, and everything in between, it feels like everyone’s excited about at least one big game this year. It’s easy to forget about the smaller games and indie titles amidst such a jam-packed year, though, so we’re here to point out 15 games that could become the sleeper hits of 2022.
By sleeper hits, we’re talking about games that are likely to only truly get appreciated months after they’ve released, or just completely blow critics and players away by massively exceeding expectations when they do launch.
Sifu – Feb. 8
What’s got us truly excited about Sifu is the combination of a striking art style and what looks to be super-fluid, satisfying hand-to-hand combat. Players will be able to use pretty much anything in their surroundings to defeat the onslaught of enemies, and your positioning in your environment will be key to surviving their flurry of incoming attacks.
Normally, we’d say that Sifu will just be an immediate smash-hit with players and critics alike. However, due to how packed the end of January and entire month of February 2022 is looking for releases, we could imagine this one flying under the radars of many until later in the year. Will we be right? Only time will tell.
