    Imo



  11. Rob Donut on January 26, 2021 at 4:22 pm

    Title of the video refers to Best games – not most important whatever that means.



  12. British Sterling on January 26, 2021 at 4:23 pm

    I thought you werent covering remakes and Last of us 2 shouldn’t be on here. Did you see the IGN review? The thumbs down were through the roof!!!



  13. WatchMojo.com on January 26, 2021 at 4:25 pm

    What do you think is the best video game this year?



  14. MikeBaut 27 on January 26, 2021 at 4:25 pm

    What about Black Mesa?



  15. TheOutsidersPost on January 26, 2021 at 4:27 pm

    This is why watch mojo sucks at making lists. They put cyberpunk at the top when it just came out and has so many bugs



  16. Dawn Petersen on January 26, 2021 at 4:28 pm

    Unpopular opinion: I enjoyed tlou2 and I’m glad it’s on the list. Come @ me



  17. John Andrew on January 26, 2021 at 4:28 pm

    Basically one of the worst years to be a gamer for new content….



  18. Jesse A on January 26, 2021 at 4:30 pm

    For those of you constantly defending The Last of Us Part II and calling us all haters, you keep forgetting why we loved the first game so much. Take that into consideration and then try and understand why we were all so frustrated by the results of the second game. We are not saying you have to hate it, we understand why you would like this game, but don’t act like we are hating on it for no reason.



  19. DoomRulz on January 26, 2021 at 4:30 pm

    You ranked TLoU 2 ahead of DOOM: Eternal? Bitch please.



  20. Demos Neokleous on January 26, 2021 at 4:31 pm

    Here’s my Top 5:
    5. Valorant
    4. Dreams
    3. Marvel’s Avengers
    2. Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales
    1. Persona 5 Royal

    Honorable mention: Ghostrunner



  21. Chris Del on January 26, 2021 at 4:32 pm

    Wasted 10 mins of my life just to be told Animal Crossing is one of the best games of the Year… I want god to give me a refund of 10 mins of my life rn.



  22. Hugo Stiglitz on January 26, 2021 at 4:33 pm

    Watch Mojo is so shit at Doom 😭😭🤣



  23. Nobility on January 26, 2021 at 4:34 pm

    Yeah most of these games would be the best… IF I WAS 5YRS OLD!! Wtf are these lol



  24. Brandon Kohout on January 26, 2021 at 4:34 pm

    Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2



  25. Kombo Master on January 26, 2021 at 4:36 pm

    5K dislikes from the retards who wanted Among Us and fall guys on this list lol



  26. TheOutsidersPost on January 26, 2021 at 4:37 pm

    What sounds better..

    Playing as a 102 lb lesbian who can man handle people twice her size and wants revenge but literally sucks at getting it

    Or

    Playing as a honorable samurai Whois homeland is being invaded and who has to adapt (doing dishonorable things). Learning new forms to kill larger enemies. Basically transitioning into the first ninja.



  27. Mr Happeh on January 26, 2021 at 4:37 pm

    Last of us 2 number 2 here. All of 2020 games now at number 6 What



  28. Tobias on January 26, 2021 at 4:38 pm

    If lou2 wins goty im gonna lose it



  29. Karl Lutz on January 26, 2021 at 4:38 pm

    I’ve never played animal crossing before, but something tells me that it shouldn’t be number 1 on this list.



  30. Kyle Mills on January 26, 2021 at 4:43 pm

    "Everyone is forced by the government to stay home, so it’s good that they found social interactions in a video game! Aren’t you glad that the virtual people on the screen can live normal social lives so we don’t have to?"

    – Modern culture in a nutshell



  31. ΟΛΓΑ ΚΑΤΣΑΡΟΥ on January 26, 2021 at 4:43 pm

    What the f is this game in the 1st place? Ghosts of Tusima and The Last of Us behind it?



  32. RASHED Taher on January 26, 2021 at 4:44 pm

    WTF



  33. Demos Neokleous on January 26, 2021 at 4:47 pm

    Why the hell is Aninal Crossing number 1????



  34. Linda Veasey on January 26, 2021 at 4:51 pm

    I think you people have 2 brain cells if you think last of us 2 deserves to be above ghost of Tsushima at 2nd place. Ghost of Tsushima had a story that was actually compelling, mad you think about your actions, had actual memorable character, great open world and customisation and the combat was incredibly smooth. But of course, your channel is incredibly biased and put LOU2 at 2nd because you go with what reviewers say, which was also apparent with the most disappointing games of 2018 where you put Jurassic World Evolution at 9th because IGN gave it a score of 4.8 despite it having a score of almost 90 on meta score, sound familiar as to when IGN gave LOUS2 a score of 10?! This is why I don’t watch your videos and I’m not subscribed, because no matter what people say about games, whether they’re bad or not, you just go and declare theses to be the best games of the year, even though they’re either based off of IGN reviews or your own opinions, and you don’t say that in the title. So go ahead delete my comment, just letting you know that I’m telling those who may see my comment know that you are an awful and untrustworthy channel.



  35. Galactic Maui on January 26, 2021 at 4:53 pm

    I can see number one but number 2 for last of us seems really high. I’d easily put several other games above it including Ghost.



  36. SQARZ CHIEF on January 26, 2021 at 4:53 pm

    This is the worst list possible



  37. Vlexander on January 26, 2021 at 4:53 pm

    other game: That’s pretty ok
    Ori at number 8: "Heartbreak"
    ACNH at number 1: "Rage in pain"



  38. TheOutsidersPost on January 26, 2021 at 4:54 pm

    Ghost of Tsushima deserves to be at the top of the list. The last of us part two were so basic and extremely unrealistic.



  39. Exile Forever on January 26, 2021 at 4:54 pm

    You think remakes like Resident Evil 3 and Xenoblade should be added on someone’s list?



  40. CaptainCosmic on January 26, 2021 at 4:54 pm

    horrible list



  41. Camden on January 26, 2021 at 4:55 pm

    Wow a video that didn’t mention Fortnite/botnite



  42. Live on January 26, 2021 at 4:55 pm

    I don’t understand why everyone talk about the dislikes and TLOU2. It’s simply the best game i’ve seen in a while, what’s the problem?



  43. Lucaz 37 on January 26, 2021 at 4:57 pm

    Where’s Mafia: Definitive Edition? That game at least *DESERVES* a mention



  44. suzan Abdullah on January 26, 2021 at 4:58 pm

    U should of added among us as number 1 pick



  45. Rattle Snake on January 26, 2021 at 5:01 pm

    Ff7 was lame af



  46. KaiKrankz on January 26, 2021 at 5:02 pm

    This is my opinion
    GOT should be higher than Tlou2



  47. bagybachi on January 26, 2021 at 5:04 pm

    Waste of time



  48. QntnQuarantino on January 26, 2021 at 5:04 pm

    Do me ternal or Doom Eternal?



  49. Jerome Campbell on January 26, 2021 at 5:04 pm

    Explanations for every game on the list and then #1 has a monotoned reasoning behind it



  50. OneBrickWall on January 26, 2021 at 5:05 pm

    are you kidding me. animal crossing…
