2021 in Review: Winners and Losers

VGChartz's Taneli Palola: "Here we are again. Another year's worth of video gaming behind us; some of it quite good, some of it just kind of there, and disappointingly a lot of it bad once again. This was somewhat true in years past as well, but this time it's even more so the case. It was so very easy to come up with a massive list of losers for 2021, but it took some serious digging to fill out the winners column, almost as if the video game industry has a lot of issues to work through at the moment. So, let's take a look back at the best and the worst 2021 had to offer us in the world of video games, and see if there's a silver lining somewhere."

“ It's a great excuse to jump back into the fray with videogame’s second favorite Spartan.”

So you’re saying that the game Hades and its star character, never played it, are bigger more well known and liked than Kratos and the God of War series?

Armyofdarkness46d ago (Edited 46d ago )

He obviously means Kassandra, right?

Gamehard46d ago

I don't think the MC from Hades is a spartan though. Not 100% sure, but yeah I don't know of any other spartan game character that's more popular than Kratos.

Psychonaut8546d ago

Im guessing he’s speaking more broadly and is referring to Master Chief as the most popular “Spartan”

Abnor_Mal46d ago (Edited 46d ago )

That’s likely who it is, I don’t if Master Chief can be considered a “true” Spartan like Kratos lol.

Master Chief Spartan label is just a rank given in the Halo military, sorry not a Halo gamer so I have no clue what their army is called in the game.

But is Master Chief really more popular as a Spartan, interesting question.


The 5 best games on PlayStation Plus Premium that make subscribing worth it

The PS5 is an incredible console, and if you're lucky enough to have one, or have just received one for Christmas then you'll already know there is a host of great games out there.

What you may not be aware of is that if you subscribe to PlayStation Plus Extra or Premium, you'll actually get access to a huge catalogue of titles to play at any time. Many of which you can stream without having to do any downloads. If you have a PlayStation Portal you could even play these titles from your bed.

Damn the only one I’ve played so far is Miles Morales, although I do own Control and Rift Apart.

DeusFever47d ago

Odd list. Where is Horizon Forbidden West? Ghost of Tsushima? Demon’s Souls? Returnal? And fun indie games like Superliminal? Where’s “A Plage Tale Requiem” and “Evil West”, the current PS+ Essential offerings?

Exvalos35d ago

Evil west is underrated I'm having a really good time playing it.

juniorpop46d ago

Like seriously? Those are games Extra Tier can get - so not worth upgrading to Premium
