Top 10 Single-Player Video Games of 2021

With 2021 came more video games for gamers to enjoy. Let's see which are the best single-player games of 2021.
The Top Ten
1 Resident Evil Village

Resident Evil Village is the sequel to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, in which players control Ethan Winters. He is searching for his kidnapped daughter after a fateful encounter with Chris Redfield and finds himself in a village filled with mutant creatures. This game was one of the nominees for Game of the Year at the 2021 Game Awards.

2 Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

Insomniac Games returned with yet another amazing game this year, this time with another Ratchet & Clank game, which is exclusive to the PlayStation 5. The game introduces new characters and exploits the power of the PS5 by switching between worlds seamlessly.

3 Hitman 3

The third game in the Hitman trilogy delivers just like its two predecessors and adds a lot of variety and choices during missions as well as many different locations.

4 Psychonauts 2

The sequel to Double Fine's Psychonauts was released 16 years before its sequel and received just as much praise. The distinct style fans loved is still there.

5 Metroid Dread

Metroid Dread's development started back in 2005 for the Nintendo DS but was canceled due to technical limitations. The game has received positive reviews since its launch, so it's safe to say that platformer and Nintendo fans alike are pleased with this game.

6 Far Cry 6

The sixth main installment in the series is set on the fictional Caribbean island of Yara, ruled as a dictatorship by "El Presidente" Antón Castillo, who is raising his son Diego to follow in his footsteps. Players take on the role of guerrilla fighter Dani Rojas.

7 Halo Infinite

Halo Infinite features the grand return of the beloved protagonist of the series, Master Chief. After Halo 5: Guardians, a game many considered to be disappointing, this game seems to be doing something right, or at least better, with its single-player experience. The game also has multiplayer, but for the sake of this list, we are only talking about the campaign.

8 Kena: Bridge of Spirits

The story follows Kena, a young spirit guide who uses her magical abilities to help deceased people move from the physical to the spirit world. The game has beautiful visuals and brings a bit of originality.

9 Tales of Arise

Tales of Arise is an action role-playing game developed and published by Bandai Namco. The game follows a man and a woman from the opposing worlds of Dahna and Rena and their journey to end the Renans' oppression of the Dahnan people. The main objective of this game was to revitalize the Tales series, which the developers clearly achieved given the positive reviews this game has received.

10 Returnal

Released exclusively for the PS5, in this third-person shooter roguelike game, you play Selene, a scout who crashes on a mysterious, hostile alien planet. Selene is seeking the source of a mysterious signal called "White Shadow." The game begins where Selene's ship has crashed, and she finds the body of another scout, only to find out it's her. Every time you die, you return to the beginning, unless you've reached a checkpoint in the story.
