Which games were the most popular among players on the K4G platform in 2022?

Games are not losing their popularity, on the contrary, there is a constant influx of new players who want to explore both familiar series and completely new worlds. Last year, the best-selling game on all platforms was Elden Ring.

What about the K4G platform? Which games have been the most popular with players? What are the bestselling titles in each category? Let’s find out!

Elden Ring

As already mentioned, last year was dominated by Elden Ring. Studio FromSoftware rose to the challenge and delivered a game that not only boasts a huge world full of exciting adventures, but also a lower entry threshold compared to the previous Dark Souls. Elden Ring is also a bestseller on the K4G platform.

God of War

Another top-selling game last year was God of War. The game debuted on desktop computers in mid-January and received very positive reviews from gamers. The title has been refined and carefully ported to the new platform. During the adventure, the player traverses complex corridors with many branches, which hide many secrets, items and encounters with enemies. The game is not lacking in spectacular boss battles.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Ultimate Edition

Although slightly older, this is still a very popular entry directly from Rockstar Games and has also gained a huge following in the K4G community. Red Dead Redemption 2 Ultimate Edition has been praised by players for its additional story mode and free access to the shared world of Red Dead Online. In it, players can take on different roles to forge their own path – becoming a bounty hunter, trader or gatherer, among others. Other graphical and technical enhancements include HDR support, 4K and faster screen refresh rates.

Forza Horizon 5

The bestsellers also include a title for fans of dizzying speeds. Forza Horizon 5 is the next instalment in the open-world racing franchise. This time, Playground Games has taken players on a journey through Mexico, offering the largest world in the history of the series. It includes a desert, a rainforest, a giant canyon, ancient ruins, picturesque beaches, villages and the city of Guanajuato. During the course of the game, we take part in the titular Horizon Festival, a kind of music and car festival.

The Dark Pictures: The Devil in Me

Fans of narrative games will also find something to their liking in K4G. We are, of course, talking about the famous The Dark Pictures Anthology series, specifically the new instalment The Devil in Me, produced by Supermassive Games. This is the fourth part and also the season finale. In the game, we follow a group of filmmakers who have arrived at a contemporary replica of H.H. Holmes’ Murder Castle. The protagonists soon discover that they are under constant surveillance, and their stay in the notorious location becomes a real fight for survival. Only our choices will determine which of the protagonists will emerge unscathed.

Need for Speed Unbound

NFS Unbound is the next instalment in the popular and critically acclaimed arcade racing series. The story focuses on the fate of two friends who are separated after a robbery at a garage and the theft of a valuable car. The protagonist tries to recover the car by taking part in a series of street races.

Marvel’s Midnight Suns

Fans of superhero adventures also found something for themselves on the K4G platform. We are talking about Marvel’s Midnight Suns, which premiered at the beginning of December last year. The game’s storyline revolves around Hunter, who was created specifically for the title. Together with famous superheroes, he tries to stop Lilith, the mother of demons, who wants to take over the world. The game focuses on turn-based combat, in which we command a group of four characters. As well as Hunter, you can choose from superheroes such as Iron Man, Captain America, Doctor Strange and Wolverine.

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion

Another bestseller on the K4G platform is Final Fantasy VII Reunion, a revamped version of the popular action RPG from the PSP handheld. The game faithfully reproduces the storyline and gameplay mechanics of the original, while offering greatly improved visuals with new models and textures. In this action-RPG we explore the world, complete quests, develop the character and fight using a strongly arcade-based skirmish system.
