Over the past year, so many of us around the globe have changed. For gamers like us, even when it’s tough, and even when things get tough, games can still make us smile, inspire and bring us happiness, however But we define it. A lot of people in the United States are saying “thank you” these days over Thanksgiving, and we’ve asked our employees to participate, as we say thank you, in our first Thanksgiving Day Celebration. we. Hear about games, new or old, used by our staff through 2021, then join in the comments and tell us a little bit about what’s out there Friend to 2021.
Hardware Editor: Chris Coke – Red Dead Redemption 2 | DLSS and FSR | World of Warcraft
As a resident tech guy, it’s probably not surprising to anyone that I spend less time gaming than most of the staff. That said, the game I’m most grateful for this year isn’t a new one: it’s Red Dead Redemption 2. I just finished a level as complete as I ever had; a gameplay that I’ve been doing for over a year. The beauty of the game, from the graphics, the way the characters develop and change over time, to the deeper contemplations of the nature of good and evil and how we get away with (or not) the decisions they make. we give in life, is dynamic. Having played the original Red Dead and knowing where this story leads adds another layer that can only be fully felt when taking a similar journey back in 2013.
Technologically, I am grateful for DLSS and FSR. With graphics card supply issues hampering PC gaming, these technologies stretch older GPUs and allow countless gamers to experience new titles that might otherwise have been out of reach. with.
Finally, although it may surprise some readers because of last year’s chaotic situation, I am grateful for World of Warcraft. I’m not an active WoW players for a few more years, but it’s a game I can always come back to. More importantly, it was the game that locked me into this genre, kept me in touch with friends I might have left, and what prompted me to write about the game in the early days following the demise of the game. Warhammer Online when I could have given up altogether. Doesn’t play it much doesn’t matter. Developer drama doesn’t matter. What is the game and how has it impacted me, as a gamer, as a human being, as a writer. For history, I will always be grateful to WoW.
Staff writer: Kevin Chick: Batman Arkham Series
This year I am grateful for Batman: Arkham series of games. Especially, Batman: Knight Arkham. While I played Asylum and Origins near their original release dates, I never got a chance to complete the storylines for both games.
Over the past year, I have had to deal with a number of health problems. On the low end, I needed to get distracted and think a few decent narrative games would fit the bill. Import my backlog of many Steam games.
I started playing Arkham chronological gameplay, ending each main story and most of the DLC content. Batman: Knight Arkham is the icing on the cake. It throws everything together, and shooting around the city in the Batmobile feels great, even if the controls are a bit problematic. It works for me and gives me pause from whatever is going on in the world. Now, I can’t wait Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League and The Gotham Knights Come released next year.
Staff screenwriter: Chris Saxon – Tales of Arise
As a huge fan of the JRPG genre, I simply love Stories series of games. The story and game mechanics of the series simply captivated me. It’s action based and has a more “open” feel to it rather than a very linear map-based game. After my last session with Berseria, I felt empty and alone. Four years later, Tales of Arise showed up and man I did not disappoint. The graphics are a big improvement, supporting the story to become one of the best Tales games to date. If I had to say I’m grateful for a game this year, Tales of Arise would be it. It has everything: Story, Exciting Gameplay and Great Graphics!
Screenwriter: Victoria Rose – Role Playing | FFXIV
It goes without saying that the roleplay has an unnecessarily bad rap. Still, even after fourteen years of doing it online and seven years in an MMORPG, I’m still grateful for how immersive it is and how it continues to come with friends and great moments in my life. It’s a hobby that requires a lot of skill, emotion and time, but it’s all a challenge that keeps my mind spinning. And even during the years that followed, I felt like I was constantly growing with both veteran players and newcomers bringing incredible ideas.
Plus, who doesn’t love a good adventure? From moments of interpersonal conflict to massive battles with the universe at stake, I feel like I’ve participated in almost anything imaginable and I’m excited when anyone That proves me wrong. And in MMORPGs, everyone enjoys projecting their intelligence and creativity into the worlds I’ve come to love exist. if not.
I am grateful for the art of role-playing, the people who create the space – from the developers to the community organizers – and the relationships and stories that have been forged throughout the years and into the future.
Weekend / Video Editor: Steven Weber – Failure 76
I’ve been a gamer for most of my life. Gaming has always been a safe space, mainly a place where I can go, relax, and in the case of MMOs, meet new friends. Over the past year, as social encounters have become scarce and we never know when things will open up, meeting my friends face-to-face has been difficult. That’s where Fall out 76 Got into.
With Fallout 76′Last year’s update, my circle of close friends found a place in Appalachia where we could all get together, launch nuclear missiles into the wasteland, and chase legendary weapons. which we know we have no chance of having. While not a true MMO, our team made a lot of new friends in Fallout 76, and spent months playing together, something we hadn’t done in years. I’m definitely grateful to Fallout 76 for finding a game we can all play together.
Managing Editor: Joseph Bradford – The Lord of the Rings Online | The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
When I look back at the games that got me through 2021, there are actually quite a few of them. The Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood think about it too EVE Online. Both of those games have been my mainstays throughout the year, allowing me to play with some of my favorite people in the world.
But this year’s two games stand out for different reasons. 2021 has allowed me to return to my first true love of MMO, lord of the rings online, in a way that sparked my love of MMOs. There have been times when this MMO has let me down, especially the questionable decisions like the “mini-expansion” that have occurred in the recent history of the MMO. But prepare for Gundabad’s Fate reviews have allowed me to truly love the world that Standing Stong Games has brought to life. Middle-earth is my favorite fantasy setting and the stories and experiences that SSG gives me whenever I step into their version of the world are some of the best in any MMORPG . As I work through Gundabad, I was reminded of this and it really allowed me to fall in love with MMO again.
Also, there’s a game I’m grateful for every year, and it really The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Interestingly, it’s not necessarily an in-game moment that makes me feel grateful. Sure, countless hours running around FUS ROH DAH”ing things to death will never get old. But rather, Skyrim allowed me to start my career in game journalism in earnest, and introduce me to friends I now consider close to family. It passed Skyrim that I’ve met many of my fellow participants on our Magical Saturday live streams, as well as our editorial collaborator, Shank. This game, no matter how many times it gets its name in hell, will always be special to me because of that simple truth.
