7 Most Anticipated Games of 2021


Given the current situation with the pandemic, a bunch of us are stationed at our homes. Now, what do we do with the time we save after giving a terrible excuse at work? (power cuts. Bad WiFi. Upset stomach and so on). We go on google and search for something whimsical like free pokies for mobile phones, knowing very well that we do not know how to play pokies (and neither do we have the disposable cash). It is alright, we have all been there, and you are probably not the only one who’s been caught in a loop of boredom staying at home.

Why Are These Games so Popular?

Now, if you are someone who is really into video games, we have a great piece of news for you. There are more than enough games that you should be looking forward to this year, and yes, you’d have to regulate play-time because you are also (probably) a responsible adult who needs to get their work done! 

Honestly, the beginning of 2021 seemed pretty grim; and the fact that neither Netflix nor any other streaming platform had anything new to watch was a huge disappointment. It was literally the same with the gaming scenes with gamers bored of playing the same maps in PUBG and Valorant. Yes, Among Us did have its glory days. However, frankly speaking, who even has more than two close friends who can play Among Us till 2:30 in the morning? We do not, and we are not very sure if you do as well. 

Games to Look Out For

Naturally, like with anything in these crisis situations, there seems to be a risk that while these verified-for-2021 games will be postponed (or, thankfully, moved up sooner!). This collection is updated frequently, from all major new video games across all consoles being added as they are released, often covering the upcoming Xbox Series X and PS5 devices, as well as PC and Switch. Therefore remember to include these new releases, and also the anticipated Xbox Series X games, Switch video games, and PS5 video games in your queue.

Top 7 Anticipated Games You Were Waiting For

These are a slew of remarkable games coming to PC as well as consoles in the year 2021 throughout all formats. There may be enough here for everyone, from large RPGs to artsy indies and everything in between. 

All of it worth awaiting - across all platforms in 2021 is listed here:

  • Mario Golf Super Rush: Releasing on Nintendo Switch on the 25th of July, the iconic Mario bros don their flat caps and tweeds to a golf title. This can also be played in a storyboard mode where all our childhood favourite game stars compete through a game of golf and finish challenges. We’re so into it with the motion controls and experience points.
  • Little Devil Inside: Premiering in July on PC, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X and Xbox One, LDI is a prime example of a small project making big money. This game is an RPG game involving survival skills in the Victorian period. The players need to discover, survive AND fight weird monsters. Oh, also, did we mention, this game has a great sense of humour too!
  • 12 Minutes: Nomada’s interactive game premiers on August 19 across PC and Xbox One. This game is an unforgettable experience as one when you play free pokies. In this game, the user is a husband stuck in a 12minute loop. Suddenly, your romantic date turns terrible with your wife being accused of murder; and while you work through the time loops, you make some interesting breakthroughs that will shake you up.
  • Psychonauts 2: On the 25th of August, spanning across PC, PS4 and Xbox One, we have the cult classic game Psychonauts. A wide gamut of gamers have been playing this game, and if you are one, you’d definitely know the game. However, the second version of this game has promising mental terrains that they explore while Raz navigates through the idiosyncrasies of other characters.
  • Kena: Bridge of Spirits: Coming up on August 28th, 2021, across PCs (Epic Games Store), PS4 and PS5 is this adorable adventurer Kena, a character that goes on a mission to a sanctified shrine in the mountains. She is also joined by a number of downy spirits called the Rot (you’d really want to have a ‘The Rot’ plushie) who guide her. 
  • Riders Republic: With its release on the 2nd of September 2021 across PCs, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Stadia, Ubisoft hopes that your choicest social circle is on the way. There are as many as fifty riders on the map, and this helps you and your mates to explore notable American national parks like the Grand Teton and Yosemite.
  • Deathloop: Releasing on the 12th of September, 2021 in PC and PS5s as a timed exclusive, Deathloop is like imagining Groundhog Day, but here the players are murderers who do nothing but kill each other every single day and keep repeating the same thing. Set on the mysterious Black Reef during a frenzied period, the two assassins have varied perspectives and are hence thirsty for each other’s blood.

Parting Words - One Gamer to Another

We hope these games are already getting you stoked up. Go check your gaming devices and controllers to see if they are working in their prime; you really do not want jerky or choppy graphics while having a game night with your homies. 

Final Words

However, we really need to put in a word of advice here or consider this something as parting words from one gamer to another. Please do not stress yourself out playing the games continuously throughout the day. Sorry to sound like your dad, we really do not want to be the bore, but you really need to rest your eyes. Gaming on your PC or console involves a lot of mental work, and your eyes and brain may get tired if you do not give yourself an adequate amount of rest. Hence, enjoy the games as much as you want to but take some rest and drink some water!
