What a roller coaster of a year its been then. We can’t say its exactly gone to plan now has it? With delayed releases, console shortages and a few underwhelming performances, we’ve got to admit its been a bit of a wild one.

However, that certainly doesn’t mean 2021 hasn’t treated us to some absolute gems too! Despite its unpredictability, this year has once again shown that the gaming industry hasn’t been slacking since the pandemic started almost two years ago. Game developers have still given their upmost to ensure that we have the best products they have to offer, and we must be thankful for that.

As a result, we thought it best to compile an article expressing our gratitude. Here’s a list of the top ten games of 2021, just in time for Christmas!What is cloud gaming? Google Stadia and Microsoft xCloud explained - The Verge

10. Metroid Dread

Platform- Nintendo Switch

Genre- Action/Adventure, Shooter

It’s been a long time since this ones been in production, therefore making its payoff all that more satisfying. It’s undoubtedly a fitting finale to a saga which started with the original NES game, making it an honour for me to celebrate it in this way. What starts as a standard investigation on planet ZDR for Samus morphs into a galaxy-threatening mission where she uncovers the origins of the lifeforms linked to her past- the Metroids, the Chozo and the X parasite. Full of intense set pieces and thrilling game play, this one cannot be missed by fans of the series. Metroid Dread' is a dark rebirth for Samus Aran | Engadget
