Forums - Gaming Discussion - Your favorite games so far in 2021

I guess just Valheim. There hasn't really been many games for me this year tbh (much like the past 5 yrs for me in general).



Around the Network

There's this neat little indie game on Steam called "Before Your Eyes" that's about going through a person's life where every time you blink (using webcam tracking), the timeline progresses. Super unique experience, probably the best one I've had so far this year

As for the game I had the most fun with, RE8. Not nearly as memorable as 7 for me but an extremely enjoyable game



LoD.



So far it's star wars the fallen jedi on series x. Played it with the latest upgrade for next gen and the game is beautiful. Love the Dark souls inspired combat, story is pretty good and love the cinematics in the game.



So we accidentally locked the thread with the OP still intact and left this thread open. So I just copied the OP from the locked thread and put it in this one and unlocked it.

On Topic, favorite game of the year so far is undoubtedly Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart

I haven't played many new games from 2021. The Medium would be my favorite so far. Not that I loved the game. I've spent most of the year catching up on older titles or replaying games. 

Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 are my most anticipated games for the rest of the year, along with a handful of smaller titles. 

The Medium comes in 2nd for me. It wasn't amazing but it was decent. Returnal is my 3rd but only because I still haven't gotten past the first freaking boss yet

Returnal is that hard? Not that I can play it right now. I don't have a PS5.

I haven't played any 2021 games yet. There was nothing I truly wanted to play to be honest. Up until now I've been playing some games I have been accumulating for years, but never got around playing: Blasphemous, Trails of Cold Steel II, Ni No Kuni, DOOM Eternal, Persona 5 Royal, Horace, Luigi's Mansion 3... All good stuff to be honest. My favourite so far was Cold Steel II. God, this series is SO GOOD at creating and expanding its world, characters and story. It also has some amazing music and battle system. Now I need to get the Sky trilogy...

Back to 2021, luckily for me NEO TWEWY is almost here and I'm dying to play it. I really enjoyed the demo so I hope the full game is just as good.

Not past the first boss? Oh, man. How many hours have you put in? I’ll tell you, biome 1 kicked my ass. I put about 20h into it and had probably 20 deaths. After that, though, something just clicked with the gameplay, and I started kicking ass. Died 2-3x in biome 2, once in biome 3, then once total from biome 4-6. I don’t know your answer yet, but I still say stay strong! I honestly almost gave up in biome 1, but Returnal is now my favorite game of 2021 and one of my favorite games in the past few years.
