SmashPad’s Top 10 Games of 2021

2. Halo Infinite – Xbox, PC

“I was so torn to put this at the top but it’s one of the largest releases this year that actually didn’t completely disappoint. Master Chief returns and the team at 343 really got this one down. Again, being a non-COD FPS/non-BR game already gives this game extra points for me. It’s so nice to get back to something familiar and actually feels like it did in the past. The multiplayer is well polished and stays true to Halo gunplay which could have easily gone awry. They took everything Halo fans loved and improved most aspects of it and took risks in areas they could, like the campaign, that ultimately paid off.” – Christian Paraguya, Staff Writer
