Aside From Elden Ring, Can You Guess The Highest-Rated 2022 Xbox Game So Far?

It'll probably come as no surprise to hear that Elden Ring is the highest-rated Xbox game on Metacritic for 2022 so far, but what about the second highest-rated game? No cheating, we want you to guess before you read on!

Spoilers ahead!!

The answer is the fantastic The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe, which boasts an incredible average rating of 93 on Metacritic (based on 7 reviews), placing it just behind Elden Ring which has an average of 96.

We're part of that rating, having given The Stanley Parable an "Excellent" 9/10 on Pure Xbox earlier this year:

And what about the rest? Here's the full top 10 Xbox games of 2022 so far according to Metacritic:

  1. Elden Ring (96)
  2. The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe (93)
  3. Cuphead in the Delicious Last Course (92)
  4. Rogue Legacy 2 (90)
  5. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge (87)

  7. Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels (85)
  8. Citizen Sleeper (85)
  9. Destiny 2: The Witch Queen (85)
  10. Tunic (85)

A pretty interesting list, then, and it'll be even more interesting to see what it looks like towards the end of the year. Will anything be able to knock Elden Ring off the top spot? To be honest, we don't see it happening, but you never know...
