    This list was so wrong, Returnal should have been 1 or 2, League of legend games last longer than a run on a Returnal Biome. The game gives you portals to go to the other biomes there’s no need to save when the portal takes you directly to the biome you need to go. This makes me think that both watchmojo and IGN never completed the game. The game is the first true PlayStation five experience and it is by far one of the most beautiful games. The graphics are amazing and the particle effects from the monsters and bosses are mesmerizing. The fact that Biomutant is above It Takes Two and Returnal is saying something about your list.Biomutant was dog water. It’s content is so boring and not rewarding. Do you guys even play the games? I hate how the biggest criticism for Returnal is how hard the game is and how there’s no save that’s the entire name of the title, Returnal, you return. It takes two should’ve definitely been number one that games gameplay, graphics, handling, controls, additional free co-op mini games and story is 10 out of 10. You should let someone that is actually good and can pass the games review them. Not some “Reviewer” that happens to play video games but someone that actually plays video games and is good at them and plays them completely, then let them review.

  4. Mika Tozz on July 3, 2021 at 8:29 pm

    Ratchet is number 1 by far, I don’t know what you are smoking right now…



  5. DevilGames on July 3, 2021 at 8:30 pm

  6. audiogarden1 on July 3, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    Biomutant and Pokémon Snap over Ratchet and Clank? You are high.



  7. Mega John XS on July 3, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    I knew monster hunter rise was gonna be in here.
    But i fought it will be number 2



  8. Eveline Caroline Lienhua MingMei FenFang Huang on July 3, 2021 at 8:32 pm

  9. Ness the Best on July 3, 2021 at 8:33 pm

    A game I think should have been on this list is Miitopia for Switch



  10. Samuel Medina on July 3, 2021 at 8:33 pm

    Trash list, Ratchet and Clank is #1



  11. Mr_Irishman on July 3, 2021 at 8:33 pm

    NieR Replicant not even on here when it should easily be number 1👇



  12. Super Toad 64 on July 3, 2021 at 8:34 pm

    Bowser’s Fury should have been on the list.



  13. OffModel on July 3, 2021 at 8:34 pm

  17. Ty_Rant on July 3, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    Apparently y’all forgot Little Nightmares 2 came out this year



  18. COREY M on July 3, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    guilty gear? where is it



  19. Larry McMorris on July 3, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    I wouldn’t trust MOJO!!! RATCHET AT THE END OF THE LIST!!??? WHEN EVERYONE KNOWS ITS NUMBER ONE ON THIS LIST!!!



  20. godsproject0 on July 3, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    Biomutant ahead of returnal? Nah. I didnt play rift apart but returnal was a great game. I played 22h of biomutant and the game is a 6 max. Tbh it does not even deserve to be is the list



  21. CZERO/FOOL on July 3, 2021 at 8:45 pm

    I know this is a remastered, but FFVII Remake Intergrade!
    Edit: Wait, they counted Remasters and Re releases?!



  22. Schrikz on July 3, 2021 at 8:46 pm

    This list is messed up… ratchet and clank only 7?! That’s it, I’m unsubscribing.



  23. FirstTuber123 on July 3, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    Wait…..what?



  24. Bbbb Bbbb on July 3, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    Resident evil 8 is the best game?? Imao not even close,,, it just 2021 is not for gaming



  25. Please Count To 3 on July 3, 2021 at 8:50 pm

    Damn kinda disappointing list. Not gonna lie these games didn’t have any huge impact on me. I just finished them and move on to the next.



  26. Robin Olsson on July 3, 2021 at 8:54 pm

    Ratchet & clank rift apart looks amazing!
    I need to get a ps5 right now.



  27. Mohammed Zaidi on July 3, 2021 at 8:54 pm

    Guys please make a video on ranking best 20 original goosebumps books please BTW big fan



  28. Tristan Smith on July 3, 2021 at 8:55 pm

    The two best games I enjoy playing this year is obviously Ratchet & Clank Rift apart and Resident Evil Village



  29. Mc Knight on July 3, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    Why the hell is pokemon snap even here and biomutant wtf. I gotta say this list is TRASH



  30. Realbano on July 3, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    Number 1 – It takes two
    Absolute (surprisingly) amazing… One of the best game designs… and soooo many Ideas



  31. DJGamingSmash on July 3, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    No NieR, huh?



  32. Humble Roberson on July 3, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    The best game this year will be Kena Bridge of Spirits and Demon Slayer 🔥



  33. Smooth Operator on July 3, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    RE Village did not improve on RE 7. They added RE 4 mechanics to RE 7, took out any scare factor and called it RE 8. Total disappointment to me at least.



  34. Jeffery Rosario on July 3, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    Biomutant



  35. Austin Mota on July 3, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    Returnal and ratchet should definitely be higher. Maybe ppl just haven’t played cuz they don’t have a ps5? Lol



  36. Foster Deck on July 3, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    RE 8 Village is a definitely a great game despite not having more time With Lady Dimitrescu I was completely blown away with the game entirely. It’s definitely one of THE BEST Games so far this year



  37. Joshua Roque on July 3, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    No Scarlet Nexus??



  38. D.T. Gray on July 3, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    I love monster hunter rise



  39. Tom Lewis on July 3, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    Disco Elysium up by one. Never been a more emotional experience



  40. Wigadama on July 3, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    *_Dear everyone who reads this, we don’t know each other but I wish you all the best in life and happiness_* 🙏🏻🍀❤️



  41. Trsh Brth on July 3, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    Returnal at number 9? This list is trash



  42. Gumbernd Mx on July 3, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    I am sad that Little Nightmares 2 is not on the list



  43. BkSun on July 3, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    Persona 5 is a PS3 game how is it too much for the Switch to handle?



  44. Nick Last-Name on July 3, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    RE8 received mixed reviews, but somehow still best game? I know WM has a hard on for anything RE, but it’s definitely getting to the point of annoyance



  45. Spike Bebop on July 3, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    #1 would be Resident Evil Village



  46. Iceman5506 on July 3, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    The new rachet and clank in the most enjoyable game I played in a while. It should be way higher in the list



  47. Michael Olsson on July 3, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    Terrible list as usual.



  48. MaddestMike on July 3, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    Hopefully Metroid Dread will end up here.



  49. TheWorstShow on July 3, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    Biomutant above Ratchet and Clank???



  50. Brad Wright on July 3, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    Resident Evil 7 and Village have honestly saved the franchise for me
