And now we've reached the finish line for 2021!
Now was it just us or was this whole year on fast forward? Because it definitely zipped by while we stayed busy making our way through the very best titles the gaming industry had to offer. With the presence of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, gamers were treated to an initial lineup of experiences powered by those console's jaw-dropping tech. The last-gen consoles weren't left in the dust, however - the Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC all played host to a wealth of rewarding games that spanned various genres.
Some of us here at ONE37pm felt the need to show some love and adoration to the very best games of the year. You may even see a game on this list that came out a year prior but still managed to enrapture one of our newest members of the team. So without further ado, let's recount the games that provided us with the most enjoyment in 2021.
