Monthly Summary: January 2021

I’m kicking 2021 off with a pretty good start to the gaming year, even if I do say so myself! This year, I plan to focus on some 2020 releases I didn’t get chance to play and some other larger titles from the backlog.

Since I’ve been focusing on the ever-expanding backlog, I haven’t played many new games (aside from otome releases) and somehow managed to avoid the majority the ‘popular’ choices of the year, so I image my list will be quite different to others you may have seen.

Without delaying it any longer, here’s my list of the 11 Best Games I Played During 2020!
