Best horror game of 2021

Honorable mention: Return

Senior Editor Alex Gibson: Returnal is best known as a third-person shooter that cleverly weaves SHMUP, rogue lite and the mechanics of bullet hell together to create a challenging yet addictive experience that is oh-so hard to put down. Typical of developer Housemarque’s signature design, the gameplay is at the heart of its appeal to most gamers.

Though Returnal’s mysterious, eerie, and at times downright eerie world and fascinating lore for my money was so absorbing, almost intoxicating, that they are equally the core of its excellences. I just love the atmosphere of the many different biomes of Atropos, which remind me of Alien in the best ways – from the eerie soundtrack to the overall aesthetics, the premise and even its main character, Selene.

Returnal’s fusion of superb music and sound design adds an eerie layer to an already attacking setting and story. The result is a sense of excitement. There is uncertainty about where Selene is headed, what mystery awaits, and ultimately what may bring her nightmarish ending. It’s not scary-you-silly stuff on the edge of the seat, but it’s uniquely disturbing throughout and an experience that we think deserves special mention in our best horror game of the 2021 roundup.
