While there have been some fantastic new titles released into the gaming community this year, there has also been some dreadful ones.
It is has been an important year for the industry as a whole on the back of the COVID-19 pandemic - but the vast majority of developers have managed to release their games that were in development last year.
New titles such as FIFA 22, eFootball 2022, Back 4 Blood and Far Cry 6 are just a handful of some of the big new titles in 2021. But while the focus may have been on what some of the bigger companies have been doing, others have been overlooked.
If this list is anything to go by, it has been a disappointing year for new Nintendo Switch games, with half of the titles on this list critiqued for the handheld console.
With Christmas just around the corner, as well as The Games Awards, here are the worst games of 2021 so far.
