Nominated for the best Destructoid Switch game of 2021 – Destructoid
Was it a very good year?
2021 has been an interesting year for the game. We had a lot of projects that were already completed early on, and a lot of delays. This has had a huge impact across the industry, more than the lull of mid-late 2020. That’s why our Destructoid Switch nominees for Game of the Year are so unique.
Fortunately, it’s not dominated by first-party releases, and several other studios have a chance to shine. The Switch has had a huge influence on the gaming sphere since its launch, but over the years we’ve been able to see it take full shape. You have publishers like Capcom, Atlus, Square Enix, and Grasshopper supporting the system with exclusives or timed exclusives.
Shin Megami Tensei V deserves a special mention because it has been so successful since its release. Seeing CMS ridiculed as “inferior” to Personage by some recent fans the latter has been difficult to deal with, but now looks like he really gets the respect he deserves. And can I just say how happy I am that 14 years (almost to the day) after the original was released No more heroes in Japan, we’re celebrating the third main entry in our Destructoid Switch nominees list.
Here are the nominees for Destructoid’s best Switch game of 2021:
