The Best Games Of 2021 So Far and The Most Anticipated Ones To Come


The long-awaited arrival of 2021 is already among us and brings under its arm the revolution of the new generation that we were left in the middle of last year. It’s time to polish all platforms, old and new, with all the games that this year will come to PC and consoles.

Great games capable of delivering the leap that PS5 and Xbox Series deserve are added to the return of great sagas that will also be dropped on platforms such as Stadia and Switch. It certainly promises to be a great year for gamers, and this is all that we have already marked on our calendar.

 The best games of 2021

‘Hitman 3’

best games of 2021 so far
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Switch, and Stadia
  • Price: 59.99 euros

IO Interactive’s formidable stealth and assassination experience deliver its largest and most ambitious edition. ‘Hitman 3’ brings us back to Agent 47 to invite us to find the most elaborate ways to end our objectives. An action game that could well be classified as a puzzle.

‘The Medium’

  • Platforms: PC and Xbox Series
  • Price: 49.99 euros

Horror fans have a date with the Bloober Team and their particular vision of fear. After dazzling us with ‘Layers of Fear’ they return to play with the duality of two worlds, the real one and that of the dead, to get fully into ‘The Medium’ an adventure not suitable for the faint of heart.

‘Little Nightmares 2’

best games of 2021 so far
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch
  • Price: 32.46 euros

The first ‘Little Nightmares’ was a great game in which its particular aesthetic, something like if Tim Burton made a horror game, caught all eyes. Now without the wow factor, ‘Little Nightmares 2’ proves that it can also gain our full attention on the playable. An opportunity in which he only faltered in the past due to excess of ease.

‘Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury’

  • Platforms: Switch
  • Price: 48.99 euros

After becoming one of the most celebrated platforms of the Nintendo plumber and falling somewhat into oblivion due to the curse of Wii U, ‘Super Mario 3D World’ comes back to life to demonstrate its full potential to those who did not take the glove in the past. He also does it with ‘Bowser’s Fury’ a new adventure to facilitate even more -if possible- the drink to those who have already played it.

‘It Takes Two’

  • Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series
  • Price: 35.99 euros

If someone was left wanting more Josef Fares after ‘Brothers’ and ‘A Way Out, ‘It Takes Two’ comes to demonstrate what a great idea that cooperative sofa adventures are. A platform game in which you accompany a couple who are not going through their best moment and who promise tons of smiles.


best games of 2021 so far
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series
  • Price: 59.90 euros

It is appreciated when a game catches you completely off guard, and that is what has happened to almost all of us with the launch of ‘Outriders’, a looter shooter that did not aim too high and has turned out to be a delight for lovers of the good shootouts in the company. 

‘Monster Hunter Rise’

best games of 2021 so far
  • Platforms: Switch
  • Price: 49.95 euros

After succeeding in other people’s houses with ‘Monster Hunter World’, the hunt for giant bugs based on grinding and elemental effects returns to what has been their home for the last few years. ‘Monster Hunter Rise’ had a difficult challenge ahead, but it has more than met all our expectations.


best games of 2021 so far
  • Platforms: PS5
  • Price: 69.99 euros

Housemarque has become one of those studios that are rarely seen, but when they do it is to teach. The kings of Martian-style shooting are back with what is probably their most extreme martian. ‘Returnal’ is everything you would ask of a shooting game capable of surprising you shot by shot.

‘Resident Evil Village’

  • Platforms: PC, PS5 and Xbox Series
  • Price: 53.99 euros

Another of the great titles of 2021 has been the return of the first person to ‘Resident Evil’. It worked like a charm in ‘Resident Evil VII’ and here it brings an even darker and more mindless installment loaded with more monsters like werewolves and vampires.

‘Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart’

  • Platforms: PS5
  • Price: 63.48 euros

‘Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart’ has turned out to be a formidable platform dressed as a technical demo ready to show the possibilities of the PS5 SSD and its graphic power. One of Sony’s star titles for this year seems to have been crowned as the platform’s star game.

The most anticipated games of 2021

‘Kena: Bridge of Spirits’

best games of 2021 so far
  • Date: August 24, 2021
  • Platforms: PC, PS4 and PS5

We have a special affection for ‘Kena’ because it was one of the first games to show us the potential of the new generation. After delaying its arrival to live up to expectations, this Pixar-scented adventure will be one of the great assets of PS5 during the first half of the year.

‘Wario Ware: Get it together!’

  • Date: September 10
  • Platforms: Switch

Frankly, I can’t think of a better way to get the family together in front of the Nintendo Switch for a good time and a laugh. ‘Wario Ware: Get it together!’ is the perfect combination of minigames and humor that we have missed so much over the last few generations. This is going to be a great game, yes or yes.


  • Date: September 14
  • Platforms: PC and PS5

With Arkane at the end of the world and seeing the potential of this magnificent idea published by Bethesda recently acquired by Microsoft, it would be crazy not to give it the attention it deserves. A groundhog day with trained assassins as protagonists and the difficult challenge of finishing your objective while he tries to do the same.

‘Far Cry 6’

best games of 2021 so far
  • Date: October 7
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series and Stadia

Ubisoft has had one of lime and another of sand with its latest releases, so there are many eyes on ‘Far Cry 6’ and its leap to the next generation. Fans of the saga have another map ahead of us full of marks to clear, and that is usually more than enough to earn our enthusiasm.

‘Metroid Dread’

  • Date: October 8
  • Platforms: Switch

Samus returns to the fray looking more at the classics than at the 3D future that we already took for granted. ‘Metroid Dread’ takes hold of 2D to take us back in time with current graphics, keeping the essence of those vices of almost two decades ago that were so successful.

‘Back 4 Blood’

  • Date: October 12
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series

With a name that leaves no room for too many interpretations, the creators of ‘Left 4 Dead’ return to the fray with a new overdose of zombies and cooperative action. The bar is incredibly high and not having the Valve umbrella can be scary, but if there is anyone who can take this forward, it is them.

‘Battlefield 2042’

  • Date: October 22
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series

We really want to see to what extent they have hit the nail on the head with ‘Battlefield 2042’. A priori it seems that the spirit of the third and fourth installments is more alive than ever, but it would not be the first time that an experiment by EA and DICE has backfired. There are gains from touring those scenarios, of course.

‘Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy’

  • Date: October 26
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series

‘Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is the typical game that you look out of the corner of your eye until its release arrives and you make sure that yes, in fact, all that good-looking that their videos gave off were not deceiving in the least. Due to its striking combat system and its embrace of the Guardians’ humor, it is already worth having it on the radar.

‘Forza Horizon 5’

  • Date: November 9
  • Platforms: PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series

At Playground Games they aim to break the mold of their arcade driving saga with the most promising and ambitious installment to date. ‘Forza Horizon 5’ will take us to Mexico to deliver its most varied scenario and a new music and driving festival with hundreds of customization options.

‘Halo Infinite’

  • Date: 2nd half 2021
  • Platforms: PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series

He did not start off on the best foot, but if there is anyone who can stand up after any battle, it is the Master Chief. His goal is to become the first great standard-bearer of the new generation of Xbox, so to face that milestone he will probably wait a long time for his paw to appear again.

‘Horizon Forbidden West’

  • Date: 2nd half 2021
  • Platforms: PS4 and PS5

Nobody had high hopes for the creators of ‘Killzone’ after the last setbacks, but Aloy’s adventure managed to succeed where Sony seemed not to find its place. The open world of ‘Horizon Forbidden West’ promises to be even richer and more spectacular, so the only thing left is to cross our fingers very hard so that it lands in 2021 as promised.
