Join us on this bursting episode of The Game Informer Show as we celebrate making it to 2022 and look ahead to our most anticipated games of the new year. The Alexes are joined by Dan Tack and Jay Guisao to break down all the big hitters from Elden Ring, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, and so much more in one of our longest and zaniest episodes yet.

Programming note: Due to the massive volume of titles next year, we're giving the News, Playlist, and Listener Questions segment a well-deserved rest this week. All your favorites will be back in 2022!

Most Anticipated Games of 2022

On one of our favorite podcasts of the year, we get to look at the upcoming game schedule for 2022 and break down our hype for each game. And folks, there's a lot of hype to go around. We look at the huge list of titles month to month and highlight everything from the big AAA hitters to the smaller games we think you should have on your radar. After we get through the 2022 calendar as it stands today, we shift over to the to-be-announced list, which actually has some of the most exciting experiences on it. Will Breath of the Wild 2 live up to the hype? What about Gotham Knights and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League? Join us on this huge episode to find out!
