The lineup for this year’s top 10 video games that are in high expectations from video gamers around the globe is already hitting record sales.

I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of tired of the constant barrage of older games that have been remastered or remade. At least, that’s how I’ve found the PlayStation 5 game releases to be.

The majority of first-person shooter games, such as CoD and Battlefield, have been moving away from Campaign levels entirely in favor of fully developed Multiplayer gaming universes, and I don’t like it. And the Campaign isn’t on the CD like it should be; instead, you have to download it in order to play it. Even so, the campaigns are so brief that it is not worthwhile to download them anyway.

Even after 10 years of playing, I still find enjoyment in Minecraft. I will continue to enjoy this game if they keep adding new features to it with the free updates. I do enjoy Minecraft, and I detest it when people mistakenly assume that it is a game for young children. Kids can’t necessarily play a game the way it’s meant to be played just because they enjoy watching it on YouTube.

OK, I’ve rambled on enough and you didn’t come here for that. So let’s get to the top 10 Video Games that gamers are excited about for 2023.
