Winner: Shin Megami Tensei V
It was a long time coming. Fans had to wait a while for Shin Megami Tensei V, so expectations were high. So meet them as well as he did? It is a huge accomplishment. it’s a signature CMS game, with its punitive difficulty and its wealth of demons to fight and merge. It could be a defining moment for the franchise, earning it the attention it has long deserved. Congratulations, CMS V: you are Siliconera’s 2021 game of the year.
Tales of the Ascension
It’s a new start for the Tales franchise! Arise looks as good as the series always played, and clever efforts to modernize systems allow you to immerse yourself more in the story without so many obstacles. It is the best that Tales has been in for a long, long time, and it more than deserves to be a game of the year finalist.
Monster hunter rise
To augment is a return to classic Monster hunter formula. In doing so, he’s able to build on all the work of the game’s previous decades, delivering iterative improvements that longtime fans really appreciate.
