Hands up if you thought that 2021 simultaneously felt like both the longest and shortest year ever. It's been another weird twelve months, although I really didn't think things could get much worse. But here we are, looking back on another year of video games, many of which were miraculously released under some pretty trying circumstances. Again, we're lucky to be presented with so much gaming goodness.
And, indeed, much like 2020, games have provided a crucial escape amid an ongoing pandemic that appears to be going nowhere, at least not anytime soon. From games like Disco Elysium, making the jump from PC to console, to brand new experiences like Lost Judgment, or returning favourites like Halo, Forza Horizon, and Life is Strange, 2021 has been another excellent year to be a player of video games. As ever, it's nice to celebrate that.
Arguments naturally ensued, disagreements were guaranteed, as they often are, and we eventually managed to come up with a bunch of nominees for Game of the Year 2021. There were more great games where this lot came from, of course, and only a few of them will be declared winners next week, but we love them all. Just some a little less than the others. Come back in seven days for our Game of the Year 2021 victors!
Until then, have yourself the best Christmas day full of lovely food and that. Happy Holidays from all of us here!
