We're 3 months down in 2021 so far and I think it's fair to say that major releases have been fairly light on the ground up to now and, given the rumblings from various industry sources, it doesn't sound like this is going to change much in the foreseeable future. For me, the only games I've played that actually released (sort of?) this year have been Valheim and Loop Hero, both of which I played fairly heavily and then suddenly dropped off. I enjoyed my time with both but neither are really striking me as games I'll look back at at the end of the year with massive fondness.
With all that being said, what have you played so far this year that's grabbed you?
