Hello! Over the next few days we're going to be going back over some of our favourite games and moments and themes and whatnot from this very strange year. We hope you enjoy looking back with us!
It has been, the story goes, a quiet sort of year for video games. After the fun and festivities of 2020, which against the backdrop of a pandemic somehow saw two new consoles being released, there's been a lethargy to 2021 – a Boxing Day fug as we're caught in the liminal buffer between the big launch year and 2022, where every big release has seemingly been delayed to.
