The Fancies 2021: Natalie Flores’ Game of the Year List

2021 has often been pretty terrible, but at least it’s been a fantastic year for video games. I genuinely mean that. Video games are in some way tied to every source of happiness I’ve had throughout the last 12 months. That they’ve had such a spectacular year, offering plenty of…
