Top 10 Best PC Games of August 2022 – Games X

Rate this post




 Hi, folks, this is Pritam.

And today on Gams X,

the games you gotta pay attention to

in this upcoming month August of 2022.



 Starting off with number
10 it’s Way of the Hunter,

an extremely beautiful hunting simulator.

The game is oriented towards realism,

and it really does create
some beautiful environments

and depicts animals

in a really realistic and interesting way.

It’s really cool.

Like, you get a really, really
big open world environment

where you’re sort of tracking prey,

attempting to find animals
that you’re attempting to hunt.

You also get co-op, which is pretty nice.

If you’re somebody who enjoys hunting

and yet know some other people
who enjoy hunting and, well,

you’re not really in a position
to do some real hunting,

get your buddies together and play this.

I’m not gonna say I have direct
experience with the game,

but it’s certainly,
like, intriguing to me.

I’m not big in hunting,
but I like the idea

of being able to kind of
do it without, you know,

actually killing anything.

Plus, you get a cool looking
car and traverse this,

I really have to underscore

how pretty the environment’s
in this game are.

It’s enough to get me
interested in something

that I probably wouldn’t
normally be interested in.

And that’s saying a lot.

Way of the Hunter is

coming to PS5, Xbox Series
X and PC on August 16th. 



And number 9 is Marvel’s
Spider-Man Remastered

a game you’ve seen on PlayStation.

But boy, oh boy, it’s coming to PC.

And ooh, this is something
I am very excited for.

Because, yes, it is nice to
play the game on PlayStation,

but, wow, will it be nice to play it on PC

where I can really throw
everything I’ve got at it

in terms of graphics.

On the PC, we are gonna be
seeing ray-traced reflection.

We’ll be seeing the DLSS, the DLAA,

the stuff that just makes
incredibly good looking games

work very well.

This version of Spiderman

is also going to support
ultra-wide monitors.

Not really my cup of
tea. I kinda like 16:9.

But I know there’s a lot of
people out there that like it.

If you look at some of the screenshots

and footage of this game
on PC, it is stunning.

I mean, this is a game that
has been a looker on consoles.

And, frankly, I think
we’re really just gonna see

a gorgeous port that now
people are gonna be able to mod

and do whatever the hell they want with.

Spider-Man Remastered
coming to PC on August 12th. 



 At number 8 is Two Point Campus

coming to us from the same folks

that did Two Point Hospital,

developers by the name
of Two Point Studios.

Published by SEGA.

I don’t know if you’re familiar
with Two Point Hospital.

It’s kind of like a return

to really old school
theme park type games.

Like, there’s a lot of these right now.

But Two Point Campus

is probably one of the
better ones to look at,

’cause it looks like
they’ve really done a lot

in terms of ramping up the absurd stuff.

And that’s really, like,

one of the bigger reasons to
play these types of games.

They’re more or less city builders,

except for they’re limited
to one specific thing,

the theme park, a hospital,
or in this case, a campus.

And it looks like you’re able to build

a truly absurd, ridiculous campus.

Frankly, some of what I’ve
seen looks like Hogwarts,

but like it’s not magic oriented.

It’s literally just an
absurdist management sim

that I think, if I’m honest,
I’m of course going to play.

This is the type of game I really enjoy.

And Two Point Hospital was really good.

Two Point Campus is coming
to the PlayStations,

the Xboxs, Nintendo Switch
and PC on August 9th. 



 At number 7 is Sword
and Fairy: Together Forever

also known as the Legend
of Sword and Fairy 7.

It’s actually a game that
came out on mobile in China

and was so popular,

they decided to port it
over to the Play Stations

as well as PC.

And, wow, is it a pretty game.

It’s an action adventure RPG.

And the fact they’ve brought it over here

actually works pretty well on account.

It’s actually the ninth game

in the Legend of Sword and Fairy,

a series that’s been going on

for apparently quite a while in China,

like, the original game

was actually released in 1995 on MS-DOS.

But this one is actually set many years

after the events of
the rest of the series.

So it’s kind of functioning as
a reboot for Chinese gamers.

And as a first game in
the series over here,

again, it’s called Sword
and Fairy: Together Forever.

Certainly doesn’t scream
sequel in any way.

It’s, like I said,

got these crazy good looking environments.

And the game has been lauded
for having a very good story.

We don’t really get a lot
of Chinese RPGs over here

and it really looks
like a high quality one.

So I’m really interested to see

exactly how it comes together.

I will be playing it.

It’s landing on the
PlayStations on August 4th. 



At number 6 is Destroy
All Humans! 2-Reprobed

the second of the remakes
of Destroy All Humans!.

This is a series that I relish, I enjoy.

Getting another one of
these makes me very happy.

I loved the first remake,
because I loved the first game,

and they left the first game intact.

Just gave us much better graphics.

What is there to complain about?

We’re likely getting the same thing here.

It’s Destroy All Humans! 2.

Takes place in the ’60s. It’s more absurd.

It’s gone all the great
telekinesis mechanics

and all that same stuff.

Lots of new levels, pure
chaos all over Earth.

What is there not to like?

What’s interesting is
that Destroy All Humans!,

for all intents and purposes,
is a pretty unique game.

And when they hit with the first one,

people wanted more, and they obliged.

Thankfully, they’re
remastering all of them.

My hope, of course, is that we see

new Destroy All Humans!
games in the future.

We shall see.

These remakes, however,
the Reprobed series,

have been going very well.

Destroy All Humans!2-Reprobed
is coming out

on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X August 30th. 



 At number 5 is Midnight Fight Express

and isometric brawler.

Now, for all intents and purposes,

what this game looks like to me,

very much takes a lot of inspiration

from older Streets of Rage style games,

as well as Twin Stick Shooters.

And if you want my opinion,

that is a good couple
of things to combine.

It’s got a great look
to it. Good aesthetic.

Looks like the fighting is fun.

What’s interesting, it’s the story

of somebody who got out
of the criminal underworld

and was lured back into it

with the intent of preventing
a citywide criminal takeover.

There’s 41 levels. They’re
not randomly generated.

They’re handcrafted.

Music comes from this
artist called Noisescream.

I’m not really familiar with them,

but the music and trailer’s great.

If I’m honest, if it
plays out how it looks,

this is gonna be a really solid game

and something that takes
up a lot of my time.

It scratches an itch that
I definitely do have.

Midnight Fight Express

comes to PS4, Xbox One,
PC and Switch August 23rd. 



 At number 4 is Cult of the Lamb.

Interestingly enough,
is a cult building game.

You are a possessed lamb who
was saved from certain death

by a shadowy figure, let’s say,

and you basically have to build a cult.

You actually have to compete
against other cults, too.

This is regarded as a game taking place

in a land of false prophets.

It is a very interesting looking title

in terms of its graphics.

In some ways, it kind of reminds me

of a faster pace Legend of
Zelda: A Link to the Past,

but with the cult building
elements, I don’t know.

I really enjoy the graphics, though.

The sort of cut out paper
look. It really works.

And Cult of the Lamb
looks like a unique game.

That’s landing

on PS5, Xbox Series X,
Switch and PC August 11th. 



And number 2 is Soul Hackers
coming to us from Atlus,

as we all know, very
good RPG making people.

It’s the sequel to a very, very old game,

Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers
came out back in 1997

on the Sega Saturn, which, by the way,

can we talk about how
great the Saturn was?

It was a terrible console
filled with amazing games,

and it flopped so hard

and it did not get the
appreciation it deserved.

Soul Hackers 2, obviously continues

the Devil Summoner series,

which this is actually
the fifth installment

of Devil Summoners also,

part of the Shin Megami Tensei franchise.

So it is tangentially related
to Persona, and it shows.

It’s a Atlus RPG. Like,
that’s what I want.

I very much want an Atlus RPG.

I’m pretty much on board automatically.

Soul Hackers 2 is coming

to the PlayStations, the
Xboxs and PC on August 26th.


 And finally at number 1,
the Big Saints Row reboot

that seems to be blending a lot

from all of the various games

and putting together a new world,

a new type of target for satire.

And from what I have heard thus far,

actually really good action.

Now, obviously, it takes a
lot from Grand Theft Auto,

that’s what Saint Row is,

but it seems like there’s
also a lot more here.

Everything I’ve seen in previews,

I’ve thought looks delightful,

looks just, like, really
enjoyable nonsense,

pure chaos, too.

That’s exactly what I
want out of Saints Row.

And for all intents and
purposes, I’m pretty excited.

It looks like it gets what
makes Saints Row good,

and maybe understands
it a little bit better

than any one Saints Row game.

If that ends up playing out,

this is definitely gonna be a
new series of Saints Row games

because I don’t see how

if they’ve figured out
a new special sauce,

it’s not gonna play out that way.

Saints Row is coming

to the PlayStations, the
Xboxs and PC on August 23rd

Got a bonus game for you, too.

PAC-MAN World RE-PAC, a complete
remake of PAC-MAN World.

PAC-MAN World came out on
the original PlayStation,

and, wow, it was one of those
games that came out in 1999,

it was kind of like a really good example

of a platformer, actually.

Like, if you remember,

that was kind of a really
good time for platformers,

was the time immediately after

both Crash Bandicoot and Mario 64.

It’s around the same time
that Sonic Adventure came out,

which was, I mean, I’m
gonna go ahead and say,

flawed, but a really good example

of taking a franchise into 3D

PAC-MAN World was a game

that is really nothing like PAC-MAN.

I mean, there’s certain parts of it

that really call to mind
the old PAC-MAN games.

But for the most part,

it’s a pretty straightforward platformer,

with a completely different move set,

really creative levels and
they’ve redone it completely.

They’ve got new graphics, they’ve
overhauled all the levels.

I don’t know to what extent

they’ve made the game
play a little tighter.

Because like I said,

it would actually was a
pretty good platformer,

but I have a feeling they’ve
modernized it a little bit.

It’s one of those games I
kind of just wanna play again.

And seeing it with much better graphics

makes it a very high priority
platformer for me, actually.

And I’ll be definitely checking that out

when it lands on the
PlayStations, the Xboxs

and on Switch August 26th.

That’s all for today. Leave us a comment.
