It's important to note that while these numbers show just how many players feel excited hitting the purchase button for a game, it doesn't exactly reflect a game's overall quality, especially for games that are not yet released. Hence, as a consumer, dear reader, kindly take these numbers only as indicators of hype rather than of quality.

In any case, we must admit that we're excited for all of these games coming out, and 2022 is already shaping up to be a great month for gaming, starting out the year with an explosive bang.
