Big Game Awards 2021 recap


Last night, one of the biggest video game events of the year took place in the form of The Game Awards, an annual showcase celebrating developers and revealing new games. Fans had a particularly awesome show this year, being treated to some absolutely huge new game reveals and updates. In addition, there is a Infinite halo– gorilla size to speak too.

The 2021 Game Awards came out with a few major reveals, showing a new Chainsaw Massacre match in the first few minutes. There were also tons of other surprise reveals, with like a new one. Wonder woman Game, Saints Street gameplay, and another Ancient ring trailer debuting during the show. All around it was one of the best years the show has seen.

Or, at least, it would have been a better year than usual if the focus had been more on gameplay than CGI trailers. CGI doesn’t really talk about what an end product will be and therefore makes it difficult to unbox what’s exciting and what’s not. However, the lack of gameplay is something fans more or less expect from shows like The Game Awards, especially during the pandemic.

Besides the games, there were also many awards given out. This year’s big winner was It takes two, who managed to win the game of the year. This may come as a surprise to some, as this is a smaller game than many would have imagined winning. However, it certainly brings a lot to the table.
