This month’s issue of EDGE serves as a wrap-up for 2021 as it not only contains the magazine’s awards, but also the top 10 games.

We see Monster Hunter Rise getting some love here as it was selected as “Nintendo Game of the Year” – outdoing titles like Metroid Dread. Capcom’s title also places in EDGE’s top ten for 2021.
