Best Adventure Game of 2021 - Article

by Chinh Tran , posted on 13 January 2022 / 2,790 Views

2021 saw the release of several unique adventure games. The shortlist for Best Adventure Game of 2021 represents a level of diversity that is rarely seen in other categories. Chicory: A Colorful Tale took gamers through a painted world being brought to life; New Pokemon Snap allowed fans to capture pictures of Pokemon in ways they never have before; The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles had players investigating a case in late 19th Century Japan and England; and finally The Medium's take on adventure-horror made waves on next generation platforms.


The Shortlist:


Chicory: A Colorful Tale


New Pokemon Snap


The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles


The Medium





The Winner:

The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles

Runner-up: The Medium

Despite strong competition, Capcom's The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles proved the series' ability to continue to enthuse its strong fanbase 20 years after its inception. A duology that features a strong narrative, intriguing mystery, more courtroom drama than an episode of Judge Judy, and great characters helps make The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles the Best Adventure Game of 2021.

So am I. I'm even happier that Chicory actually made the shortlist somehow despite being even more obscure! I got around to trying it just recently and can confirm the hype around it is wholly justified. Seriously. That wound up being my pick for this category. Jus wanna hype it a little 'cause it's a deeply meaningful, highly creative, and criminally overlooked gem!

I think The Medium might actually make my top 50 list next year though. It's kind of growing on me more now, I'm finding.
