    GLAD THAT METROID DREAD IS GETTING A LOT OF RECOGNITION!

  2. Space Mutiny on January 8, 2022 at 2:21 pm

    The word is oriented, not orientated

  3. Ronin Gazelle on January 8, 2022 at 2:22 pm

    Why is your gameplay clips so low res lmaooooooo you guys really don’t care anymore do you

  4. AQWBlaZer91 on January 8, 2022 at 2:22 pm

    No Tales of Arise, that’s a shame.

  5. Mon Calimari Mon Calimari on January 8, 2022 at 2:23 pm

    Halo Infinite definitely should be on this list. I know this list was probably made before full game, but it should be here somewhere because the outstanding multiplayer beta had been out for over a month when this list was made

    For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)
    For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matthew 16:26)
    For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)
    The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)

  7. 🦌 Kawaii Katsuki ⛄ on January 8, 2022 at 2:25 pm

    I think Poppy Playtime is really popular atm

  8. Liam Fawcett on January 8, 2022 at 2:26 pm

    I argue back for blood and halo infinite should be on here

  9. Ulises Rodríguez on January 8, 2022 at 2:28 pm

    No Bowser’s Fury then 🙁

  10. MDF Zayvin on January 8, 2022 at 2:28 pm

    add timestamps

  11. TJT Reviews on January 8, 2022 at 2:29 pm

    No love for Little Nightmares 2… Shame

  12. mysterious gamer89 on January 8, 2022 at 2:30 pm

    resident evil really redeemed itself this genereation, only shxt stain it layed this gen was re3 remake. but re revelations 2, re7, re2 remake & re8, were all awesome. even re1 remake & 0 finally made it to a sony console wit origins collections on ps4 which are even better than the gcn versions.

    resident evil hasn’t been this hungry since the ps1 days y’all, top 5 series of all time forever. infact? it was best oldschool series of the 8th gen undoubtably and overall 2nd best ip that dominated most that gen behind the soulsborne series.

    well done capcom 👍.

  13. Hank Hill on January 8, 2022 at 2:30 pm

    People are really sleeping on Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s like they refuse to believe their presumptions that it would be another Marvel’s Avengers were wrong.

  14. Obi Wan Kenobi on January 8, 2022 at 2:31 pm

    Despite the bugs in the game, Guardians of the galaxy is easily one of the best games of 2021
    It makes "Avengers" game look like a joke and it’s just a fun game overall

  15. Volcano Man on January 8, 2022 at 2:31 pm

    Pokémon snap? Wtf

  16. Ricardo Velazquez on January 8, 2022 at 2:32 pm

    Well, their number 10 was Game of the Year at the Game Awards this year 🤡

  17. kaileybug tiger on January 8, 2022 at 2:32 pm

    Haha she forgot Cyberpunk haha not

  18. Mason P on January 8, 2022 at 2:33 pm

    Death loop makes the list and Returnal is just an honorable mention? Lol ok

  19. Rene Olivas on January 8, 2022 at 2:34 pm

    Metroid it’s number one for me

  20. tonemaster 2099 on January 8, 2022 at 2:36 pm

    Farcry and Rachet are 👌👌 and Returnal👌

  21. Rafael Souza on January 8, 2022 at 2:38 pm

  23. Justin M on January 8, 2022 at 2:41 pm

    Metroid Dread might be the most overrated game of all time. and i’m someone who liked it

  24. steve jones on January 8, 2022 at 2:42 pm

    Ugh. I’m looking for a new game and nothing on this list interests me. Anyone have some suggestions? Btw how isnt ghost of Tsushima on here? It’s fantastic

  25. ZazaVision on January 8, 2022 at 2:42 pm

    where the fuck is Little Nightmares 2

  26. Felix Kargegie Storytime on January 8, 2022 at 2:42 pm

    Guardians of the Galaxy and Halo Infinite should be here

  27. Sam is the best on January 8, 2022 at 2:44 pm

    In my opinion, Mario Party Superstars should’ve at least gotten an honorable mention, it returned the series back to its formal glory after the mixed reception ND Cube’s other Mario Party games have been getting.

  28. O K on January 8, 2022 at 2:44 pm

    you missed farcry 6

  29. MT B on January 8, 2022 at 2:49 pm

    RE Village has got to be one of the most overrated games of all the me.

  30. Nathan Field on January 8, 2022 at 2:55 pm

    When are people going to stop putting expected games in the lime light.

  31. Olivier Roussin on January 8, 2022 at 2:57 pm

    My girlfriend gave me resident evil village for Christmas, i want to marry her so bad🥰

  32. AnimationStation on January 8, 2022 at 2:57 pm

    Deathloop over Ratchet?! Seriously?!!!

  33. EJ Spear on January 8, 2022 at 2:58 pm

    Y’all seriously slept on Scarlet Nexus and SMT V.

    Pokemon snap? dafuq

  36. Alyssin Williams on January 8, 2022 at 3:00 pm

    *whispers* dorfromantik!

  37. SuperProGamer 69 on January 8, 2022 at 3:00 pm

    Im so happy that Resident Evil Village is #1.
    I just hope Tales of Arise made it to the list.

  38. Mr. Reality Draws on January 8, 2022 at 3:02 pm

    Imagine these great games that came out in 2021 and they get snubbed by Pokemon Snap.

  39. Vincent Fields jr on January 8, 2022 at 3:04 pm

    Damn!! No love for little Nightmare 2 watchmojo? 😔

  40. dklingen on January 8, 2022 at 3:05 pm

    Hey Kirsten, nice list! I had forgotten how much I really enjoy how well you articulate the pronunciation of words when I used to hear you at WhatCulture. Happy New Year!

  41. Curt Randall on January 8, 2022 at 3:05 pm

    For me it #1 is a last minute surprise that I played this week, Guardians of the Galaxy. On a scale of 10, the fun factor is 11. I find it very strange that nobody at WMJ thought it deserves to be in their top 10. Maybe they didn’t play it, or they are just clueless.

  42. Deivs Hdz on January 8, 2022 at 3:06 pm

    Pokémon Snap instead of Halo Infinite? Are you god dam serious? Everything else on the list is good.

  43. P D on January 8, 2022 at 3:06 pm

    Lool, and that’s is why i don’t play games anymore. Is there a single game which is for 4+ age? I didn’t see. May be the boring Agent 47 only…

  44. Jaeza Gordon on January 8, 2022 at 3:06 pm

    Honorable Mentions
    Life is strange:true colors
    Neo:the world ends with you
    Halo infinite
    Warioware:get it together
    Far Cry 6
    Persona 5:strikers
    Monster Hunter Rise
    The Ace attorney Chronicles
    Marvel’s guardians of the Galaxy

  45. Hank Hill on January 8, 2022 at 3:07 pm

    I’d say it’s like this for me:

    1. Guardians of the Galaxy
    2. Metroid Dread
    3. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
    4. Kena: Bridge of Spirits
    5. Halo Infinite
    6. New Pokemon Snap
    7. Resident Evil Village
    8. Returnal
    9. Psychonauts 2
    10. Skip… Didn’t like anything else enough to have a top 10

    Deathloop didn’t click with me. Not big on Hitman either. I tried Forza on Gamepass but it’s just not my type of game. Pokemon Brilliant Diamond was a disappointment. So was Lost in Random. Didn’t bother playing Far Cry, Call of Duty, or Battlefield because I imagine they’re just more of the same. Outriders, Scarlett Nexus, and Little Nightmares 2 were fun distractions but not top of year list-worthy. Haven’t gotten around to It Takes Two or Shin Megami Tensei yet but they
    look like they have potential.

  46. The Fourth Primogenitor on January 8, 2022 at 3:08 pm

    Too bad, from what I remember watching in Act Man’s video, the story of RE Village kind of shit the bed, but hey, people who enjoy the gameplay aren’t wrong for doing so.

  47. New3DSLUIGI364 on January 8, 2022 at 3:11 pm

    Here are my Top 5 Best Games of 2021:

    1. Metroid Dread
    2. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
    3. Lost Judgement
    4. Monster Hunters Stories 2: Wings of Ruin
    5. Resident Evil VIII(Mainly for Lady D)

  48. Adam Cooper on January 8, 2022 at 3:12 pm

    No halo infinite or guardians of the Galaxy?

  49. Aditya Koduri on January 8, 2022 at 3:13 pm

    Leave it to watchmojo to pander to audience without doing any research

  50. Antwoine Johnson on January 8, 2022 at 3:14 pm
