The holiday season is nearly upon and it's time to launch the GOTY thread! That's right, time for the 2022 Community Game of the Year thread. I'm counting on you, the community, to tell us why the games you played mattered to you, what made them special. Spread the love around, and share the joy that gaming brings us!
TLDR version, you, the GWJ community members vote for your favorite games of the year, games you played for the first time in 2022, whether they were released this year or not. It must be new to you. And, this is important, if you change your mind before the deadline, PLEASE, for the love of Stan, do not edit your post: make a new one and specifiy you've changed your mind.
