I've played a lot of great games this year, with Xbox Game Pass helping me discover some proper gems thanks to its consistent work in adding high-quality titles. A Plague Tale: Requiem was an absolute delight back in October (well, aside from the rat waves of course), as was the Xbox-exclusive As Dusk Falls which really surprised me this summer. However, one game captured my heart this year, and that's Ravenscourt's procedural adventure Road 96.
Sure, this game technically came to Nintendo Switch in 2021, but its Xbox arrival was this year, so I'm classing it as a GOTY 2022 contender. I reviewed the game when it did finally come to Xbox and I enjoyed my experience so much that, well, here we are!
