    RE Village was my favorite game I’ve played this year.

  7. Myriam Cordova on December 10, 2021 at 8:16 pm

    Four hours for nothing

  8. bangerangrufio13 on December 10, 2021 at 8:18 pm

    Back 4 blood

  9. beatingstuff88 on December 10, 2021 at 8:18 pm

    Where the hell is lost judgment?

  10. edward english on December 10, 2021 at 8:18 pm

    Keep on waking watchmojo! Are you telling me a game where you can’t run and shoot is number one?

  11. TheDuckClock on December 10, 2021 at 8:20 pm

    Was the Metroid Dread footage captured on a Windows XP laptop? I expect better quality than that WatchMojo.

  12. Calvin Matthews on December 10, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    You put New Pokemon Snap on this list but not Tales of Arise? Massive disrespect!

  13. Devin Giles on December 10, 2021 at 8:21 pm

  14. Ariho Aine on December 10, 2021 at 8:22 pm

    bowser’s fury for me

  15. Arcee Star2021 on December 10, 2021 at 8:24 pm

    What about Call of duty: Vanguard, Mass effect: Legendary Trilogy, Crysis remastered trilogy, and even Far Cry 6 those are the best video games..

  16. Edwin Saez on December 10, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    How are Guardians of the Galaxy and Kena not in the honorable mentions list?!

  17. rexerexer66 on December 10, 2021 at 8:29 pm

    Far Cry 6 SHOULD BE ON THIS LIST!!!!!!!!!

  18. Ivellos on December 10, 2021 at 8:30 pm

    2021 was a really bad year for gaming. Most games on this list are mediocre at best

  19. Amariah and Azariah Richards on December 10, 2021 at 8:30 pm

    What a bunch of Simps for this vampire Lady. I say support Sonic Colors Ultimate

  20. Tat Dus on December 10, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    Gta v

  21. The Scarecrow_1941 on December 10, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    Biohazard is #1

  22. Vir Animus on December 10, 2021 at 8:33 pm

    This list should just be Metroid Dread listed ten times.

  23. Rene Carteir on December 10, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    It looks like it was a down year for video games if these were the 10 best

  24. Primo Scarab on December 10, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    Imagine putting goty at number 10

  25. Husshuss100 on December 10, 2021 at 8:38 pm

    That video should have just had Resident Evil Village as the only game on the list.

  26. lonely wolf on December 10, 2021 at 8:38 pm

    Halo infinite come on

  27. Mike Morr on December 10, 2021 at 8:40 pm

    I’m a PlayStation player and I for sure thought Halo would be on this list

  28. FuriousP96 on December 10, 2021 at 8:41 pm

    Number 10: Up Yours Game Awards

  29. MoovieDude on December 10, 2021 at 8:42 pm

    This is actually a really good list, Hitman 3 didn’t get nearly enough attention. Much better goty than the VGA’s (sorry it takes two but you’re not better than RE8)

  30. BigBlackMagnum Xbox on December 10, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy was a great game as well

  31. MaddestMike on December 10, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    What a stupid list. Metroid Dread is the real choice for game of the year.

  32. Michael Anthony on December 10, 2021 at 8:45 pm

    What no resident evil 4 VR that’s some next level sh*t there it made an already legendary game even better somehow

  33. Joshua Acheampong on December 10, 2021 at 8:47 pm

    Deathloop is basically a down rated version of dishonored, extremely repetitive, it takes two deserved higher and resident evil village would not be my pick but I kind of understand why it’s 1st in your list.

  34. Giancarlo Thomaz Senoni on December 10, 2021 at 8:47 pm

    7:38 Metroid Dread is a okay game, it pales in comparison to Super Metroid, the game should have be in the top 10 worst games of 2021.

  35. Paul Stokowski on December 10, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    Little Nightmares 2 any1 ? Guess its only me then.

  36. Martyr Logarius on December 10, 2021 at 8:54 pm

    where is Kena: Bridge of Spirits?

  37. Ahoora Sadeghi on December 10, 2021 at 8:55 pm

    For me, it takes two should’ve easily taken the top spot because of the lack of decent couch co-op games. The story is great, graphics is awesome, top notch gameplay specially playing it on a split screen. Honestly, it takes two was an ambitious entry to the couch coop gaming and it nailed it. For me it’s the best couch coop game that I’ve ever played!

  38. Agent E on December 10, 2021 at 8:56 pm

    Where’s Halo Infinite and Jurassic World Evolution 2?

    Them two were amazing games.

  39. birdwell2427 on December 10, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    It takes two is the best game I played in forever

  40. Mass Destruction on December 10, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    RE:Village should’ve won the GOTY of Game Award instead of “Its freaking Take Two.

  41. Christopher Hill on December 10, 2021 at 9:02 pm

    You didn’t include smt 5, tales of arise, lost judgement. Seriously who gives a crap about racing games?

  42. felix wood on December 10, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    Tales of arise deserved a mention

  43. jack luffy on December 10, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    I won’t lie at the game awards I was hoping for Metroid dread to win the game awards but when “it takes two” won I was actually happy for them because he actually deserved it and at least Metroid dread won the best action game so I’m happy it won at least something and got noticed

  44. The Liamster on December 10, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    I love Hitman 3 and Far Cry 6. They are my two favorite games to come out this year.

  45. Lewis 1992 on December 10, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    But let’s be honest, games released this year have been sub-par compared to most other years.

  46. ImASexyDinosaur on December 10, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    It’s a crime to not have Tales of Arise on this list

  47. RoyalHustler09 on December 10, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    Dang you guys could have at least have Shin Megami Tensei 5, Persona 5 Strikers, Tales of Arise, Scarlet Nexus Neo: The World Ends With You, Guardians of the Galaxy, Monster Hunter stories and Crusin’ Blast in the Honorable Mentions section.
