The 10 best games of 2021 so far


While we won’t know the best games of 2021 definitively until the year is out, the first half of the year has already furnished some incredible titles. Whether it was Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart showing what the PS5 can really do, or Scarlet Nexus demonstrating that there’s still a lot of life left in the JRPG genre, 2021 has already been a great year for gaming.

We’ve polled the Tom’s Guide staff to see which games have really stood out between January 2021 and the present.

If you want the best of what 2021 has to offer in the gaming space, look no further than the list below. Now, let’s see what the second half of the year brings.
