KEENGAMER’S TOP GAMES FOR 2021
It’s the end of the year and it’s time to reflect on the top 20 video games of 2021. Despite the fact that many of our most anticipated titles were delayed to an unknown future, we still received a lot of great titles in 2021. There was something for everyone, from AAA titles to indie favorites.
Recently, I sent out a survey asking KeenGamer’s writers to list their top games of the year. Staff was able nominate up five games for consideration. Their first choice received 5 points, while the second received 4 and their fifth favourite received 1 point. We are proud to present the list of the 2021 best games after compiling the results over the past few weeks.
Check out our list of games of the year and make sure you check out the winners in categories such as “Best Character” or “Best Narrative”.
It’s been strange in the world lately, so I was thrilled to have the chance to move mentally to a small Colorado town. The protagonist of True Colors (Alex Chen), desperately wants to start a new family with her brother. But she is confronted by a shocking twist that will make her question the motives behind everyone in Haven Springs. True Colors is a great game. It has great character, compelling dialogue and lots of heart.
Life Is Strange: True Colors are a true gem. It reinvented the Life is Strange series, bringing it back to its roots in a small-town setting that is full of mystery. While the animations and design of the game retain the Life Is Strange feel, they have been visually upgraded. This is a truly amazing game, full of love and dedication to every aspect.
It was a gripping, emotional story that featured a cast of characters who were relatable and an excellent representation of important topics.
Resident Evil village has an amazing storyline. It’s terrifying with disturbing visuals but its characterization broke the internet for a while. Miss. Vampire lady. I immediately thought she reminded me of Bayonetta.
Excellent gunplay and story. There are also some great horror parts to keep you awake at night. A real modern Resident Evil 4.
I am a little simp for Resident Evil. It was a wonderful addition to the series. It’s a strong combination of gothic horror, Resident Evil cheese.
A great couch game for co-op. It had a strong narrative and was fun to play. You can also replay the minigames many times.
It is a testament to a developer who cares deeply about their games. With a compelling narrative and a lot of variety in level design, mechanics and narrative beats it’s a game that is easy to play and doesn’t have any BS.
It’s like a group of friends on a cosmic adventure. The Guardians’ galactic threat is amplified by the almost perfect pacing, while still allowing for character development to most of the members of the team. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is a unique experience. It features exceptional voice acting, storytelling and humor.
