RPGFan Games of the Year 2021: Editors’ Awards

RPGFan Games of the Year 2021 Editors Awards

At this point, it feels tired to say that this year was a tough one. But you know what? I think we can all agree that 2021 wasn’t quite the relief we hoped it would be. Nonetheless, the games were once again very good, so we’re happy to finally be able to present our Game of the Year Awards!

Yes, we know you’re all waiting for our “Overall” picks for Game of the Year, but before we dive into those, it’s time to share one of my personal favorite yearly features: our Editors’ Awards. Here, you will see lists ranging from the “Top 5” you might expect to other delightfully offbeat lists. Nonetheless, they all have one things in common: a celebration of the genre we all love.

It’s worth noting that we have a whopping 16 different editors offering their takes this year, which is an awesome number, and tied for the highest we’ve had in almost 20 years.

So, check out the menu below, browse everyone’s awards, and look for our RPGFan Games of the Year 2021 Overall Awards soon!
