RPGFan Games of the Year 2021 ~ Editors’ Awards: Scott Clay

RPGFan Games of the Year 2021 Editors Awards

Game That Rises Above Others Award 

Sorry Monster Hunter Rise, I did love the time I spent with you, but another game with the word “Rise” in its title was just superior. Tales of Arise really was a spectacular game through and through, and shows just how great a game can be if companies take their time and don’t rush games to market. Other developers, please take note of this in the future. Take your time and make a good game instead of a rushed game, please!

Should Have Been a Monstrum Award!

My man Dogi, always a bridesmaid and never the bride. Falcom, please throw our wall crushing, blue-haired, beautiful man a bone and let him be a playable character again. You even teased it in-game, you knew, and you didn’t go through with it! WHY!? He would have been so cool to play as and destroy walls — mostly destroying walls — but it still would have been cool. You will get your time in the sun one day Dogi, I can feel it! Speaking of beautiful blue hair…

I Need Hair Like That Award

As a bald man, you come to terms with the simple fact that bald is beautiful, and you accept just how beautiful you become without hair. But then Nahobino comes along and makes you question just how pretty one man can truly be with long flowing blue locks of anime hair. I mean, have you seen that guy? He is pretty, like really pretty. I would be nervous just being in the same room as him, anyone would be! I don’t want hair like that, now that’s childish. I need it!

The Go Away Rean Schwarzer Award

And the winner of this year’s Go Away Rean Schwarzer Award is…Rean Schwarzer! Congratulations Rean! Rean is a back-to-back winner of this award and has shown great tenacity in going away and never coming back. Sorry to all the other nominees of this award of which there are none and never will be besides Rean. We all hope to forget him forever, as the Trails series continues on in bigger, grander games that don’t include him. I for one look forward to them!  

The Lovely and Amazing Award

This one goes out to Twitch chat for always being lovely and amazing! I love you all and I hope you all have a wonderful 2022 which we can continue to share together! Stay beautiful!
