Which game will be the best of 2021?

Forza Horizon 5, the racing game that attracts millions of players from all over the world, has been nominated in categories like Multiplayer, Game Design, Family, British Game, and Best Game. It would not be surprising if Forza Horizon 5 shines at the top as the best game of the year, given its excellent sales performance and mostly positive reviews from gamers.

Halo Infinite and Back 4 Blood will compete in Multiplayer category, while Life is Strange True Colors will stand out as a strong candidate for Narrative. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which will make its way to Game Pass soon, received nomination in Audio Achievement.

Unpacking is the featured indie game in the 2022 BAFTA Game Awards with three nominations in Original Property, Narrative, and Family. Developed by Witch Beam, Unpacking is a puzzle game that blends its unique pixel art style and excellent sound design together. If you have not had the chance to try out the game before, make room on your calendar because Unpacking will be worth buying and spending hours for you.

The game met many positive reviews on its launch in terms of pushing the technological limits of next-generation consoles.
