Who doesn’t love lists? In this final week of 2021, I present my list of favorite games played this year. These are personal favorites, and I am including only five.
Disclaimer: These are games which I played in 2021, not games released in 2021. None of these games were published this year. In fact some are quite old, and I wish I had discovered them sooner.
Honorable Mentions: Not making my list, but worth a mention are Bravely Default II , Dragon Quest Builders 2, and the Kingdom Hearts series, or at least the KH games I have played thus far. Now on to the list!
Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen (Capcom, 2013)
Skyrim (Bethesda, 2011)
Final Fantasy XV (Square Enix, 2016)
Breath of the Wild (Nintendo, 2017)
And my Number One game played in 2021
Yakuza: Like a Dragon (Sega, 2020)
And that’s it. A very simple list of very excellent games, and they are very highly recommended by Trailing Sleeves.
