I don’t know about you, but people keep saying to me there weren’t any great games this year.
I’ll admit, there weren’t any generation-defining classics from the likes of Popstar, BadDog, or CD Projekt Red Dead Redemption 6. But genuinely, how could there be when Covid measures have contributed to more delays than even the merest hint of snow does to all UK public services?
On top of that, it’s very easy to forget that access to the best places to play these games sucks harder than Kirby on laughing gas. Cryptominers are hogging the best graphics cards and scalpers are hoarding more next-gen consoles than Jeff Bezos has toilets in his mansion – even if there’s not that much to play on the 14 PS5s and Series Xs they’ve got stashed in the cupboard under the stairs.
