Movie: Violent Night. I loved it. It was silly and brilliant.
TV show: Severence
Song: Spaceman from the Eurovisions. It just made me smile.

I don’t know if I read/played new releases from the other categories. I’m sure I did, but my memory won’t let me access that data at the moment.

Movie: The Banshees of Inisherin
TV show: I've probably watched worthier, more intellectual programmes, but the one that's stuck in my head is The Traitors
Video game (single player): Return to Monkey Island
Book: The Brilliant Abyss by Helen Scales
Song: All of Frank Turner's FTHC is a hardcore return to form with touching moments, but Non Serviam is a proper jump-up-and-down-yelling-at-your-loudest anthem.

Listening to FTHC now on this recommendation. It is very good, but also has STRONG Hold Steady vibes, particularly Separation Sunday, which is worth checking out if you haven't heard it before.

Movie: Banshees of Inisherin - it's majestic.
TV show: Masked Singer - it's absolute trash with few redeeming features but I enjoy it far too much.
Video game (single player): Stray - way more than "You are a cat" suggests
Video game (multiplayer): No idea
Book: The Martian - late to this party but couldn't really put it down.
Song: IRL - Peaness The album World Full of Worry was 2022's best album, and the band are currently the band I have both seen the most, and with a different beexer each time.

Not sure if I am cheating, but I did not get to see it until 2022. So.

Movie - Ghostbusters Afterlife. I have never been so happy with a follow up/remake ever.
TV show - Again I am not sure if I am cheating because I don't have a license, but for me Dahmer was the best thing I watched. On Netflix.
Video game (single player) - - Yeah I will have to go with Stray. It was absolutely wonderful apart from the anxiety inducing chase scenes that made my heart race.
Video game (multiplayer) - Has to be PUBG. Even though it has become almost impossible because the only people playing it are pros and streamers these days. It's still a bugger load of fun.
Song - I don't really follow modern music at all. Like, radio and the charts. I would have to say "The King And I" by Eminem and Cee Lo.

Movie: Top Gun: Maverick. This is a great movie. It fulfils its remit so magnificently; to be a swept along rollercoaster of the archetypal story arc. It absolutely nails what huge slice of entertainment a film like this should be
TV show: Either Dopesick on Disney, or Slow Horses on Apple TV
Video game (single player): I don’t invest a huge amount of time in gaming nowadays, and generally don’t buy stuff on release. However, because not only did I buy a PS5 and Horizon: FW pretty close to release, I have to give it game of this year, just because I played it when it came out, and, largely enjoyed it. I was less wowed by it than its predecessor though.
Video game (multiplayer): Lol. I think I played about four hours of multiplayer coop Halo 3 with my daughter in September. That can’t count
Book: the most informative and thought provoking book I read this year, was A General Theory Of Love, by Thomas Lewis, Fari Amini and Richard Lennon (All MDs). It’s a few years old now, and some of the neurobiology is out of date, but it was nevertheless a largely insightful read into the science of emotions. Why we feel, what goes on physically, understanding that and looking at the psychology and neuroscience as well. It gets a little clunky in places, with prose that doesn’t fit the purpose, but there’s an inevitability about that when you consider the limitations of our language, how it came about, and what they’re trying to describe.
Song: Oh, so much. Let’s throw Wet Leg in for the hugely fun On The Chaise Lounge
