In addition to our most important Game of the Year Awards 2021, every member of the PC Gamer team sheds spotlight on a game they loved this year. We are announcing new employee choices along with our main prices for the rest of the month.

The past year has left me very little time for new games. A big unfinished pile of gamblers, toddlers, baby, moving to the house, yadda yadda. I’m still basically catching up with the huge amount of amazing PC games I have not yet played from the last few years, let alone staying ahead of everything that was launched in 2021. But Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition put the eerie post-apocalyptic shooter back on my radar again, forcing me to confront the radiated nightmare of the apres bomb Russia once again.

And I’m so glad it did, because I can now see every single detail the developers have wrapped up in it without having to resort to the tired cliché of the FPS flashlight. And I’m with Hitchcock about this; the excitement and horror is more tangible when you can see what is coming for you.
