What an amazing year to be trapped inside! For a lot of folks, this has been the year for playing loads of games and getting to experience everything on the menu. For me, it’s largely been just another year of juggling responsibilities and doing what I can to make time for games as they come, and probably spending too much time playing older games instead of newer ones. Priorities! This was also the year I finally invested effort into getting my Twitch channel off the ground (sorry for the shameless plug), which did end up driving my decisions to play some older games, and a lot of multiplayer ones.
If there was ever a game that asked little of you, and gave you so much in return, it’s Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout. Whether playing solo or with friends, Fall Guys is a laugh-a-minute as you jump, grab, and dive for the chance to be crowned a winner. The majority of the game involves some sort of physicality that’s executed from the controller in your hands. This is a game of unscripted comedy, tragedy, and absolute buffoonery that doesn’t come along often. Fall Guys has secured a permanent place on my drive.
