Every year, there is a huge number of new products in the gaming industry that capture the world. The best games you can play are on Game Karma. If you are interested in what was included in the top games of the last year and, maybe, you missed something interesting, so sit back and read our article.
Hated by almost everyone, Biomutant has become one of the most controversial games. This creation of a small studio was transferred several times, and it was difficult to fully understand what it was like. But the release did not help it to open up from a new side — critics who stumbled upon technical difficulties and unconventional gameplay turned up their noses and called it a failure. Perhaps in vain. Biomutant is a bold attempt to tell an interesting story in a content-rich world. It does not try to imitate others and does everything in its own way, as a result of which we got something very stylish, naive, and exciting.
Disco Elysium: The Final Cut
Disco Elysium is not a new game, but that doesn’t mean we won’t remember it again. Until 2021, a huge number of players could not touch this Estonian masterpiece due to the limited number of platforms, but with Disco Elysium: The Final Cut, not only was the release on everything possible, but the game also received a number of improvements.
The main one is the voice acting. Instead of outsourcing the acting, the studio did it all itself, and it turned out incredibly well, and jazz musician Lenval Brown can easily be considered the highlight of the year along with Jason E. Kelly and Ozioma Okaga of Deathloop. In addition, this excellent RPG has acquired new dialogues and quests. This release could have taken a place even higher if it weren’t for annoying bugs that were fixed only by numerous patches.
A lot was expected from Returnal. The first major PlayStation 5 exclusive in 2021 promised to be either a success or a failure, and we are still wondering how it turned out in the eyes of Sony management, but we know for sure that we really liked it. Returnal is a new creation from the studio that gave the world Matterfall, Alienation, and Resogun. It tells about the misadventures of space explorer Celine Vassos, whose ship crashed on the mysterious planet Atropos. The game combines elements of psychological horror and bagels. It is difficult to play, and without the ability to save constantly, you have to start from the very beginning. But that’s the genre.
Forza Horizon 5
Xbox loves franchises. And if you do not take Halo and Gears of War, then it is Forza that can be considered the main one in terms of importance. Under this name, two series of racing simulators cohabit — realistic and not very. And it is Forza Horizon that always attracts huge public attention. Like previous installments, Forza Horizon 5 continues the idea of open-world racing. This time, players are transported to sunny Mexico, which is noticeably different from the cloudy and snowy Great Britain in the fourth part. The choice of location caused fierce controversy because many hoped for Japan after unreliable leaks on the network. But even so, critics were completely delighted with Forza Horizon 5.
