This week on The Free Cheese, what’s the Game of the Year?

We have decided to change up our regular end of the year show to fit our style a bit better. The three of us have never been able to play the same games each year. We miss out on a lot of releases in a single year because we play games from so many different platforms and eras. With this in mind, we opted to look back through 2021 and talk about some of the games we played that made an impact on us. In some cases, these games introduced us to new genres or took us back to something that we had long forgotten.

To follow along with our list or read write-ups about some of the games, check out the 2021 - Year in Review post.
