First Quarter 2022 Video Game Releases

Hello, gamers! Welcome to the first post on the Gaming Nostalgia site. My overall goal with this website will be to talk about recent news in the video game industry, notify you of any upcoming releases, and of course, I plan to release some review articles of my own.

For today’s article, I would like to create a list for you of all of the games that have been released over the first quarter of the year. If your eyes are sharp and you’ve been paying attention, you’re probably well aware of what has already come out and what is going to be released by the end of the year. However, I believe it’s always great to have a refresher and for that reason, I decided to create this article.

The information I plan to provide in this article is a list of games released in January, February, and March, the exact date of release, and what platform they were released on. That way you can see exactly what games are already available and for what platform, in case you haven’t purchased them already. Now, onto the main article!
