Doujin Soft and Adventure Games placed in the top two themes to return in 2022 in the returning themes section of the survey.

Dead Franchise Games is introduced by @daswhalebeard, with @berrycrepes coming up with that theme's official hashtag.

Bandai Namco Games is introduced by @apricotsushi as the Community Game-Along's 100th theme. And yes, we will be celebrating this milestone in April. More details to come likely once the new year actually rolls around.

LGBTQ+ Games is introduced by @marcusboi AKA Pixel Pacas, who was also the one that came up with the Adventure Games theme back in 2020.

Platformer Games is @capsulejay's chosen theme to personally bring back.

Action RPGs is @mdiskplaylist's chosen theme to personally bring back.

Friendly reminder, #SHMUPtember became a permanent Community Game-Along theme this year.
