    1. I’m still holding out hope for Pokemon Legends and maybe Marvel midnight Suns but the rest definitely don’t care about them

    1. They aren’t. Most of this list isn’t the hate they’re claiming.
      WatchMojo just realized that since people can’t see the Dislike count, they can flood their channel with clickbait videos claiming any old bullshit with absolutely zero consequence.

  1. I can totally understand why some people are skeptical about game releases considering how gamers have been burned with games (Fallout 76 & Cyberpunk for example) I want to give developers the benefit of the doubt. However there have been some games that make me really want to question game developers

  2. “The rage against starfield is questionable”, much like a lot of entries on this list. Ya got me WatchMojo, clickbait worked

    1. @Alyssin Williams Sounds like they are enjoying the fact dislikes are hidden and not showing how shitty some of their lists are.

    2. @Kah P it sounds more and more like this WatchMojo list should be high up on the ‘this list is really shitty’ chart

    1. i don’t blame ppl for starting to hate the game its been there since 2013 and they haven’t given any info on the sequel

  3. I’m actually really forward (if you can’t tell by my name) to the Legend Of Arceus, I just appreciate the fact they are taking a different direction with the games, if it doesn’t work out the developers will just go back to the tried and loved idea of Pokemon, but if it does work out then it’s a win for the developers and a win for the consumer 🤷‍♂️ at least they are pushing the boat out compared to longer running franchises 🤷‍♂️

  4. My most anticipated games (keeping in mind I havent really followed gaming news early summer) so far at least are total war warhammer 3, my time at sandrock, starfield (hope bethsoft can hit that target date!), baldurs gate 3 and maybe dwarf fortress (steam version – eta is unknown). expansion for humankind would be nice. I had forgotten that Diablo Immortal was a mobile game, but even if it had been something else, well.. still boycotting activision-blizzard

  5. Pretty sure Pokemon Arceus will be a lot of fun (I rarely am bothered by framerate).

    Pretty sure about half of those aren’t worth my money.

  6. At this point in gaming history I’m convinced there will never be a perfect game where everyone enjoys with no hate.

    1. @Daniel Ortiz 343 studios, Rare, Bungie, Lionshead, Ensemble, GFWL. Microsoft has ruined so many studios, and continues to buy many more. So, I ask you, is it okay to the gaming environment as a whole to let microsoft take over certain IP’s knowing that they may kill off the studio?

  7. Yes I’m looking forward to any of these games this year like Grand Theft Auto 5 and Marvel’s Midnight Suns and Starfield are my favorite anticipated games of 2022 on the PS3 or on the PS4

  8. So excited for Arceus Legends.

    Tbh I do agree that the texture of the game wasn’t interesting, bit o don’t really care about it. The only thing that matters to me is the gameplay once I play it.

    But hey. I wouldn’t mind if they deleyed the game to improve the texture.

  9. While WWE 2K20 was an abomination, WWE 2K19 was fairly well received, had a great story, and played well. As for WWE 2K22, the recent reveal was also received favourably and the general consensus is one of mild optimism that the time off will yield positive results. Due to this, WWE 2K22 should not be on the list.

    1. Given the fact that the current cultural zeitgeist can’t be as offended as we could be back then, there’s a good reason why Saints Row was hated. But it is bringing the best of the Stillwater and Steelport eras, just toned down for a modern audience. (Which sucks if you liked the parody driven tone of the Steelport era.)

  10. I like the quirky parts of the Saints Row games. It feels like I’m back in the early GTA days before Rockstar started taking themselves too seriously.

  11. Watchmojo is a place where one game placed in top ten most anticipated list on previous day is now in the top hated games of 2022 on the next day
