As you know, 2020 was not the best year. It was full of ups and downs in the gaming community but it was still full of new things to keep us entertained. Many new games are coming in 2021, so here are the Top 10 most popular and anticipated games being released this year.

Starting out at the #10 spot, there’s Stronghold: Warriors. Stronghold: Warriors is a warfare strategy game that takes place during medieval China. The player has to build and raid castles, and create a powerful empire to take down their opponents. The game sits at #10 because strategy games are not as popular as mainstream or shooter games. Now as much as this game may be loved by others, it doesn’t really have the type of action that most players enjoy. In this game, the player doesn’t exactly control the soldiers, but mostly just helps them form aside with different power-ups or utility weapons. So if you love medieval strategy games and building armies, Stronghold Warriors is for you.

At our number #9 spot, Vampire the Masquerade-Bloodlines 2. After 16 years of no sequel, Vampire the Masquerade-Bloodlines 2, is set to come out in 2021. The game follows the sequel of Vampire the Masquerade-Bloodlines and is part of the very large World of Darkness series which is full of many games with Werewolves, Vampires, and other monsters but it is such an old series and much less popular than the next games to come that it was put at #9.

The #8 game on the list is Resident Evil:Village which is a survival horror video game. This game takes place years after Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, which was the most recent Resident Evil game. A couple had just settled in a peaceful location away from their past nightmares, when suddenly they are welcomed back by yet another horrifying tragedy. The game could be placed higher up depending on opinion but the games above are just much more popular or have been awaited for a while that we had to put at the #8 spot.

Coming in at #7 is Lego Star Wars- Skywalker Saga. The game is the continuation of the Lego Star Wars series of games. The game follows the same lore and story as all of the other games. Just as Lego Star Wars- Complete Saga, it has many of the same characters but follows a different story from the movies. The series continues to give a fun simple game to whoever plays and builds an amazing childhood for many. The game was brought to #7 because it is not very popular but the game series has been around for some time and many star wars lovers have played this series for years.
