Where would we be in the pandemic without video games?

It is not hyperbole to say that, for many, video games has been a beacon of joy and much needed escapism from the reality of this pandemic. It continues to be one of the more enjoyable ways to connect with family/friends digitally, in a world where lockdowns are frequent and Zoom fatigue is real. While the planet continues to be a big ol’ dumpster fire, video games provided that comfort we needed to push through to the next day. And yes, the effects of the pandemic did hit game development pretty bad resulting in multiple delays but somehow, through it all, we were still able to get some quality titles this year. So join Tuong and #GamerBoyz Angus MacDonald, Matthew Whalley, and Ethan Howieson as they celebrate another fantastic year in gaming by ranking Top 5 Video Games of 2021!

So join Tuong and That’s How I Remember It’s Michael Mongiardi, Raul Delgado, and John Richardson as they strap themselves in and shift into turbo as they rank Top 5 Fictional Vehicles!
