41JaxonHMon 6th Dec 2021 My favorite year to date. Obviously different ppl like different games. If you're not into the games in a given year you won't think highly of it. But for me, Monster Hunter and Metroid are two of my ALL TIME favorite series. Monster Hunter Rise ALONE, releasing on a hybrid handheld system, makes 2021 year of the decade for me. Adding Metroid Dread, the long awaited sequel to fusion after 20 years? That seals the deal. Throw in Shin Megami Tensei V, a game I didn't expect to like as much as I do, but which I now regard on par if not above Persona, and you have the trio of all trios. Games like Monster Hunter Stories 2, Bravely Default 2 and Neo: TWEWY, all sequels to DS/3DS exclusives are the cherry on top. Of course, 2017 was also great. Zelda BotW, Splatoon 2, Mario Odyssey, Xenoblade 2 and Mario Rabbids. And Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Just not quite enough to top Monster Hunter Rise, Metroid Dread and SMTV for me personally, because I love those 3 games so much. Idk. Maybe 2017 was technically better, but I enjoyed 2021 more. 2022 is looking hot though Zelda BotW 2 Bayonetta 3 Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak Mario Rabbids Spark of Hope Advance Wars Re-Boot Camp Triangle Strategy Kirby Forgotten Land Pokémon Legends Arceus And that's just what we know going in to 2022. There's gonna be more games announced for the second half of the year at e3 or their April/May Direct. 2022 is looking like it could, potentially, be the best yet.
