Our last episode of 2022 focuses on our personal favorite Xbox games of the year. From the biggest AAA blockbusters to the smallest under-the-radar indies, these are the nine games we enjoyed the most on our Xboxes in 2022. Plus: Microsoft’s latest salvo in the ongoing battle against the regulators AND Sony in the quest to get the Activision-Blizzard acquisition approved manages to make Sony look bad…but also doesn’t make Microsoft look so hot either. We’re off next week but back for 2023 starting on Wednesday, January 4. Happy holidays!
