Games of the Year 2022: Immortality

Immortality is a hard one to write about so this may be short.  But, I have to say something about it become it is most definitely interesting.

Immortality is an FMV game, but you discover the FMV clips through free association of objects that you click on within any given freeze frame of any scene.  The scenes themselves are clips from a series of made up unreleased movies that all star the same actress.

On it's face, the game is about uncovering movie clips and mentally putting them together to see this actress's career.  But, underneath, there's a ton of hidden stuff going on.  There's a whole secondary story that I didn't stumble onto until I had uncovered a large majority of the clips.

This one is really strange but is so unique that I needed to acknowledge it in my list.  Personally, I was pulled into the game for one session where I played through the entire thing until I hit credits.  I have a feeling this will be some people's game of the year this year.  For me, it's worth acknowledging but lands somewhere in the middle of the pack.

Here's where I ended up putting it:

  1. Elden Ring
  2. FFXIV Endwalker
  3. Citizen Sleeper
  4. The Stanley Parable Ultra Deluxe
  5. Horizon Forbidden West
  6. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge
  7. Pokémon Legends: Arceus
  8. Chrono Cross: Radical Dreamers Edition
  9. Cult of the Lamb
  10. Neon White
  11. Halo Infinite
  12. Vampire Survivors
  13. Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin
  14. Immortality
  15. Cyberpunk 2077
  16. Forza Horizon 5 Hot Wheels DLC
  17. Triangle Strategy
  18. Mario Strikers: Battle League
  19. Multiversus Pre-Season
  20. Stray
  21. LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
  22. Nobody Saves the World
  23. Unpacking
  24. Tinykin
  25. Total War: Warhammer 3
  26. Tunic
In my mind, this is just "below the cut" for my mid-range ratings on this list.  It's holding fairly strong there in the middle of the pack but I expect it to get bumped down as more games hit this list.
