Selphie1999Gaming’s (GOTY) Game Of The Year 2021 (Best Games Of 2021)

Selphie1999s Game Of The Year Uncategorized Compilations / Easter Eggs

With less than a week to go until we kick off 2022 and begin a new year, now is probably a good idea to post the best games of 2021 and what really got us wanting more. Basically here is a page dedicated to our favourite games of 2021.

It has been a busy year this year with many great titles being released, this year also marked both the Playstation 5 and XBox Series X/S as a year old having both been released back in November 2020. Unfortunately both systems are still elusive and hard to get hold of. A lot of these issues are due to the still on-going COVID pandemic, which does not seem to know when to stop. It has been going on for near enough two years now and does not seem to be slowing down any time soon.

Anyway this list will be similar to our 2020 page that we did, meaning it will include games that we have played quite a bit of, by this we mean at least 30 hours worth. It will also include games that were released this year (this goes without saying), our favourite game characters (this will most likely also include the voice actors too). Plus, of course, our game of the year.

So let us begin…

NOTE: This is all based on the opinion of me, Selphie1999Gaming

(GOTY) GAME OF THE YEAR 2021

Five Nights At Freddy’s: Security Breach is the latest entry into the survival horror series, which features many terrifying robots (known as animatronics).

This title is also somewhat different from the previous games too, this time players control a young kid named Gregory who has managed to get locked inside a mall. The only way to escape is to survive but the animatronics will not be making things easy.

After having spent over 71 hours (according to the Steam page), I can see why a lot of people that I watch stream these types of games always have one thing in common, they all seem to ”run away with their tails between their legs’. This game is terrifying, full of jump scares, environmental suspense and everything I was expecting and hoping for in a survival horror title.

I’ll admit this year has been rather hit and miss with games still struggling to release and many of which have even been delayed. Regardless though, this game is a true gem and deserves our Game of the Year. I look forward to more Five Nights at Freddy’s news in the future, I’m hooked!


BEST FIRST-PERSON SHOOTER

  • GAME: Far Cry 6
  • DEVELOPER: Ubisoft
  • PUBLISHER: Ubisoft
  • RELEASE DATE: October 7th, 2021
  • PLATFORM: PC, Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Stadia, XBox One, XBox Series X/S
  • OFFICIAL SITE: Ubisoft
  • OUR GAME REVIEW: Far Cry 6 Review
  • OUR THOUGHTS:

Far Cry 6 brings the player to the world of Yara, where a corrupt government is set to take over. As the young rebel Dani Rojas, our goal is to form a team in order to restore peace to the island.

Yara is a massive island and thus this makes Far Cry 6 an open world adventure, full of crime, action, and of course glitches. Though, in fair the glitches are not too bad and most that we came across was rather amusing if anything.

The enjoyable aspect to Far Cry 6 was the ability to literally run around and drive a huge amount of different vehicles, plus explore new and different locations. As for the story itself, that was quite average. Though it seemed to represent a strong message, it just didn’t really work and was rather long with over 50 missions to complete overall.

In truth Far Cry 6 was going to be our game of the year, until Five Nights At Freddy’s: Security Breach got released. As despite the average and long story, it was still fun to play.

The Vaas Insanity DLC, though a separate purchase, was quite enjoyable. It was nice to see the return of the best villain in Far Cry, Vaas Montenegro. We won’t go too far on this one as it is, as said, a separate purchase, still it is part of Far Cry 6 and though rather short, still helped our overall Far Cry experience. Not only was it nice to see the return of Vaas but the gameplay was rather fun too. From being able to see the game from Vaas’s perspective to the whole insanity mechanic of running around gunning down foes and trying to survive.


BEST RPG TITLE

Nier Replicant Ver. 1.22 is a remastered version of the 2010 classic on the Playstation 3 and XBox 360. It included new story content that was cut from the original game, this included a much younger protagonist.

The main story of the game involves the protagonist trying to find a cure for their sick sister, Yonah.


BEST SOUNDTRACK

Nier Replicant has one, if not the, best soundtracks in gaming. It was amazing back in 2010 and it is brilliant now. Full of emotional power and inspiring music that cannot be matched.

The soundtrack itself is composed by the very talented Keiichi Okabe, Kakeru Ishihama, Keigo Hoashi, and Takafumi Nishimura. It is available now on Spotify and Apple Music

Notable Mention: Neo: The World Ends With You Soundtrack – Composed by Takeharu Ishimoto (Our Neo The World Ends With You Game Review)
