The best video games of March 2022 – 71Bait

Thanks to elden ring, February 2022 will go down in history as one of the best months for video gaming ever. But March 2022 wasn’t too shabby either. From the latest entries in long-running series like Kirby, Gran Turismo, and Shadow Warrior, to ambitious new ideas from smaller studios, there were plenty of great experiences for gamers to enjoy across multiple genres this month.

If you were too busy playing the massive elden ring, you may have missed some fantastic games. These are seven titles from March 2022 that players should check out elden ring Hype dies down.

Kirby and the forgotten land

Kirby is back and more 3D than ever. Although this signature Nintendo series began in 1992, it has yet to deliver an open-world 3D experience like Mario, Zelda, and many other classic franchises. Now, for the t0 year anniversary of the franchise, Kirby and the forgotten land makes the jump to 3D spectacular. It features the excellent level design and wide range of copying abilities expected of the series, while also introducing the meme-worthy “mouthful mode” mechanic, where Kirby can suck up large objects but can’t swallow them whole.

Kirby and the forgotten land received four stars from Digital Trends. “Kirby and the forgotten land is a delightful puzzle platformer that adds another dimension to the core Kirby formula,” wrote gaming editor Giovanni Colantonio in his review. “Mouthful Mode isn’t just a gimmick; It’s a hysterical mechanic that deepens the puzzle potential. Art direction is the star of the show, transforming basic platforming themes into a creative world that has always made me curious about what to expect in the next level.”

Whether you’re looking for a new game to play with your kid, a wholesome title to cheer you up, or just a solid 3D platformer, Kirby and the forgotten land checks all these boxes. It sets an exciting new precedent that future games in the series may well follow. Kirby and the forgotten land is available exclusively for Nintendo Switch.

Gran Turismo 7

While this game has met with some controversy for its online focus and microtransactions, there’s no denying that Gran Turismo 7 is an incredibly sophisticated racing game experience. Sony’s latest PS5 first-party exclusive contains many high-end cars, realized in stunning detail, and lets players fully enjoy the simulation of upgrades, tuning and racing.

Gran Turismo 7 is a comprehensive racing simulator with features that will please series fans, those who want to learn about cars, and people who just want to casually race,” I wrote in a four-star review. “While this simulator focuses more on making the player feel elegant rather than happy, it stays true to its vision and underscores the power of the PS5.”

Until the release of the next Forza Motorsport game, Gran Turismo 7 is the new gold standard in simulation racing thanks to its intricate design that tries to turn all of its players into car enthusiasts. It’s just as engaging on PS4. Gran Turismo 7 is available on PS4 and PS5.

shadow warrior 3

shadow warrior 3 is a short and sweet first-person shooter that retains the high-octane energy of its predecessors and games like eternal doom. Although not very deep and can be hit in a few hours, shadow warrior 3 is a crazy and hard to put down adventure about defeating a bunch of demons and a giant dragon.

“There are virtually no decisions to make, just tons of enemies to kill, watch beautiful colors fade off screen, and have no-nonsense fun,” wrote DT writer Otto Kratky in a Digital Trends article about the game. “shadow warrior 3 is just a good game, but it does all the tasks a video game should do quickly and effortlessly.”

This FPS game will not lock players into an extensive live service or present them with a top-notch narrative. Players who are just looking for bombastic shooting fun will have a lot of fun shadow warrior 3 The game is available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One and is included in the PlayStation Now subscription service.

Dawn of the Monsters

Good Godzilla games are few and far between. Happily, Dawn of the Monsters lets players experience the massive power imagination that makes Kaiju so exciting to so many people. Developer 13AM Games and publisher WayForward pull off the feat with a beat ’em up that’s easy to learn and fun to play. It also has a comic and manga-inspired art style that will likely impress fans of kaiju.

“Fans of kaiju, mecha, super robots, super sentai, ultraman and beat ’em ups in general will find this Dawn of the Monsters isn’t just a trudge around for the show,” said author DeAngelo Epps of the game in a Digital Trends article. The game is available for Google Stadia, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Nintendo Switch. Those with a Stadia Pro subscription can currently download this game for free as part of this service.

Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin

Jack Garland clenches his fist in Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin.

For most of its lifespan Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is one of the most nonsensical games of all time. That final fantasy Prequel follows Jack Garland, the antagonist of this classic RPG, on his quest to kill Chaos (and he can’t shut up). Although this intense game can get downright weird at times, the Soulslike gameplay is fun enough and the story ties together so well that any fan of JRPGs needs to play through it.

That’s why I still highly recommended the game in my three and a half star review. “It is that Venom: Let there be carnage to Final Fantasy XV‘s Spider-Man: No Way Home” I wrote in this review. “It’s hammy and chunky compared to its much better competitors, but so serious in its delivery that you can’t help but love it.”

Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin is much more than just another Soulslike that starts in the shadow of elden ring. It’s an action game that’s as entertaining as it is meme-worthy, and a title that will stay in your mind long after you’ve played through it. It is currently available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.

Tiny Tina’s Wonderland

In Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, the player fights against a mechanical dragon that spits flames.

“Borderlands but fantasy” is quite an intriguing pitch, and Tiny Tina’s Wonderland fully delivers on the promise of this premise. While this is still a loot-driven FPS game, it builds on the formula that Gearbox’s previous Borderlands games established with new features like fully customizable characters, melee weapons, and spells. Its comedic writing is still hit-and-miss because it’s meme-heavy, but Gearbox handled the drastic change in setting smoothly.

“‘Adorable’ is the best way to describe it wonderland: It’s always laughing at itself and wants you to smile and laugh with it, and most of the time I did that,” said author Emily Morrow in Digital Trends’ 4-Star Review of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. “In particular, Borderlands fans and tabletop game enthusiasts will get their money’s worth here.”

Those looking for a cooperative shooter to play with friends have probably already got their eye on it Tiny Tina’s Wonderland. Fortunately, the game lives up to expectations and should keep its players busy for some time. Tiny Tina’s Wonderland is available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.

Strange West

Do you like games that place a lot of emphasis on player choices, such as Fallout: New Vegas from dishonored? If yes, Strange West could be the game for you. This immersive simulation lets players control five different characters in a supernatural-themed western frontier. It really excels in offering the player many ways to interact with every character, object, event, and decision they encounter throughout their journey.

“Sure, dark magic, weird cryptids, and a leveling system are interesting in and of themselves, but these are just tools for playing around in the open-ended playground that Wolfeye presents,” Andrew Zucosky wrote in a preview last year. “Each conflict scenario in this game can be approached in a number of ways, and the real joy is finding a way or two that you enjoy.”

Those compliments still stick, even if it’s a bit jerky at the edges. Character animations don’t look great up close, and the combat controls feel more appropriate for a mouse and keyboard than a gaming controller. Players who get past this will find a western game with a supernatural flair that is super reactive to their actions and decisions. It is currently available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The game is included with Xbox Game Pass, so those with a subscription should definitely check it out.
