SmashPad’s Top 10 Games of 2021

8. Hitman III – PS5, PS4, Xbox, Switch, PC

Hitman III was one of my favorite games to play in 2021, and it was also one of my favorites to watch. I spent roughly an hour in the game’s first mission surveying my surroundings, plotting enemy movement patterns, and carefully considering how I should kill my targets; it was a deeply fulfilling experience. Post-mission, I decided to compare my approach to others’ courtesy of a simple YouTube search. I discovered I had barely scratched the surface of what this game had to offer.” – Jon Yelenic, Staff Writer
