Tom’s Guide Awards 2021: The very best in games this year


Between the PS5, the Xbox Series X and a whole slew of new GPUs, it’s been a tremendous year in the world of gaming. Games in the past year have looked better and loaded faster than ever before, which has let developers try ambitious new gameplay ideas. Meanwhile, on the hardware front, both components and peripherals continue to get smaller and sleeker, giving gamers more choices at better prices — at least when they can find the gear in question.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart showed us what the new generation of consoles can do, while Microsoft Flight Simulator let us take virtual trips around the world when it was pretty tough to do so in person. The Logitech G915 TKL demonstrated that great gaming keyboards don’t need cumbersome wires, while the HP Omen 27i displayed gorgeous, believable worlds. These games and gear illustrate why now is an incredible time to immerse yourself in the world of gaming.

So this was a tough one to call, but there could only be one winner, and that’s Sony’s PS5. It beats Redmond’s console thanks to its bold design, stunningly fast load times, the truly innovative DualSense controller, and 3D audio support that’s seriously good.
