A post of my 2021 faves.
Best Console Game
I might be biased on this one since I am probably still with the Honey Moon period, sort to say.
An Honorable Mention has to be Assassin's Creed Valhalla.
Best Nintendo Switch Game
This was a game I knew I wanted to play but wasn't sure how it was going to land for me. I gotta say, I had a great time with it. The action is incredible and fluid, the graphics are awesome, and it's tough. Not to the point of utter frustration but, don't expect to walk into a Boss fight and get it on the first try.
Honorable Mention goes to Ender Lillies
This game is beautiful in a spooky way. This one is particularly tough as well, this one follows trends of games like Dark Souls, so patience is a virtue here. I had to rethink the way I play platformers
Album of the Year
It is kind of hard to pick an album of the year since I listen to so much music these days. But one particular album that, to me, was a very interesting find and fell in love with was,
I am a sucker for video-game soundtracks, and this, in particular, got played over and over for weeks.
Not an album but a single, abcdefu by GAYLE , this is not just a song, it's a mood
Movie of the Year
I am a huge Bond fan, and more so of Daniel Graig's Bond, he is my Bond.
- Encanto (2021)
- Dune (2021)
- Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021)
- The Matrix Resurrections (2021)
- Cruella (2021
Piece of tech
The PlayStation 5
I don't own the newest Xbox console, so by default, the PS5 wins. But as a piece of tech overall, Probably the best purchase I have made this year.
The iPhone 12 Mini
Arguably the best phone I have ever owned. This coming March I will be eligible for an upgrade, and going for the iPhone 13 mini.
Book of The Year
I did not read (or rather listen) too many books as I would have liked, this year. But one that I really enjoyed was,
I felt like I was at a bar with the guy, listening to awesome and funny stories. Definitely worth the read or listen.
I enjoyed the first act and even more so the second. Very much looking forward to the Netflix series of the Sandman.
I also need to mention Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, narrated by Neil Gaiman, such a great story
All things considered, this year was not half-bad. Yeah, a lot of stressful, frustrating, and infuriating things happened this year, which will not be listed here. Here, is for the things that bring me joy.
