Total War: Warhammer III- Sega’s best game of 2022?

It seems like Sega has gained a substantial amount of mainstream attention since the start of the 20’s decade especially with the popularity of the two Sonic the Hedgehog movies within the past three years. While the Sonic the Hedgehog series has been attracting casuals while expanding its fanbase its seems like Sega’s Total War series is becoming more popular in general. For those who do not know the Total War series has been around since 2000 but it seems like its been overshadowed for the most part during the 00’s and 2010’s decade. While most of the entries within the Total War series are generally good games the real-time turn based strategy genre has been quite competitive for over the past two decades; especially with the popularity of games such as StarCraft II, Age of Empires IV, Halo Wars and others that have emerged within the past two decades. The Total War series is one that seemingly appeals to a niche audience especially considering the fact that the turn based strategy genre was never really one that became very popular on a mainstream level. There are genres like action-adventure, RPG and shooter titles that have emerged over the past 20 years that were way more popular than the real-time strategy category. But in relation this year ’22 has felt like a lukewarm year for the gaming world in general due to the lack of highly anticipated blockbuster video game releases. Even though, Total War: WarHammer III received less advertising in comparison to the likes of Sonic Frontier it turned out to be one of the mobile/PC games of 2022. While Sonic Frontiers was one of the best 3D titles within it series that we have seen since Sonic Colors Sega’s video games involving the blue hedgehog always seemed to overshadow any other non-Sonic title on Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo consoles. Total War: WarHammer III was praised for a variety of features including its art style, campaign mode and its overall in-game customization. The sales numbers for Total War: WarHammer III are unclear right now but many could easily agree that its the best non-Sonic game that Sega has released in 2022.
