The Best 2023 Video Gaming Has to Offer
Updated on January 5, 2023 | by Vedwik
2023 has been a great year for gaming and for video gamers from all over the world. After two years of delays and deadlines that were not met, the industry started compensating its audience by releasing a number of AAA titles, upgrading a lot of gaming products that were already available, and being ready to release even more future best-sellers. Studios and gaming developers are working overtime to meet every deadline both in terms of new games as well as in terms of season passes, DLCs, and improvement releases.
The upward momentum in gaming is not only visible in the traditional console and computer gaming, but also in gaming alternatives such as online casino games. Gaming providers are seeing a constantly increasing activity in the products they offer, regardless if one is talking about Final Fantasy 14 Online or about online live dealer blackjack. The servers of popular video games are almost at full capacity, even during the summer months. This translates to serious profits for studios and providers and to a better user experience for gamers, as there are always other players, who are ready for online multiplayer activities.
Top Releases so Far and Top Upcoming Games
Dozens of games have already been released and dozens more are scheduled for release during the second semester of 2023. The biggest release so far is Horizon Forbidden West, with sales that have gone beyond the 20 million copy mark in less than six months. Another best-seller with over 13 million copies sold is Elden Ring. The majority of reviewers and players expected Elden Ring to be 2023’s top best-seller, but for the time being, its sales are significantly lower than HFW. A reason for that is that Elden Ring’s audience is a little bit smaller because of the player’s age limit.
From Valhalla to Ragnarök
The most anticipated game of 2023 is without a doubt God of War Ragnarök. The latest addition in the series is expected to sell millions of copies and earn multiple “game of the year” awards. The game is scheduled for release at the beginning of November, and it will definitely be one of the most popular Christmas gift wishes for younger and older players. GoW Ragnarök is expected to sell a lot more than 20 million copies, but most probably, its sales will be documented in the financial statements of 2023.
Gotham Knights –
The Biggest Upcoming MysteryA triple-A game that remains a mystery for many players is Gotham Knights. The upcoming open-world RPG feels a little bit like Arkham Knight, but there may be a lot of gameplay value for those that will buy it. This time, the story is not about Batman, but the players will get to control heroes such as Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Robin. The game’s release date is the 25th of October 2023, and the platforms that it will be available on our PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. The bad news is that PS4 and Xbox One players will not be able to play the game.
