After a few years disrupted by global events, gaming has roared back to life in 2022, and we've managed to assemble our 5 favourite games of the year so far with ease.

2022 has seen a great variety of games so far, with everything from isometric RPGs, racing games, horror games and fantasy epics appearing on the list.

We're gearing up for our 10 best games of the year in December, and this list could be a sneak peek of what to expect when it comes time to hand out our year-end awards.
