Too Long; Didn't Read
Tokyo Game Show 2022 wasn't as good as the last event (in 2019), but it had large shoes to fill with limited resources to fill them.
2019 was a huge year for video games and an incredible year for TGS. That year, we saw Cyberpunk 2077, Death Stranding, and Final Fantasy 7 Remake all exhibit at the event.
The first year the big event returns to Japan's shores suffers from a lack of international guests. Not everyone is comfortable, prepared, or allowed to travel to Japan and we'll likely see a smaller show because of that.
But despite its shortcomings, Tokyo Game Show 2022 is more than just a video game convention; it is the start of our comeback.
