Tetris Effect: Connected was a close second.
While the ever-brilliant Metroid Dread, is a Game of the Year contender for many who played it, when it comes to sites such as Metacritic, Metroid Dread is actually the 9th best scored Switch Game for 2021, coming in at 88 whereas the game that actually takes the crown, is The House in Fata Morgana – Dreams of the Revenants Edition and scored an impressive 96.
So, what is The House in Fata Morgana – Dreams of the Revenants Edition and why is it so great? Well, first released as far back as 2012 for Windows and iOS, The House in Fata Morgana, is a visual novel by Novectacle, with a version brought to the Nintendo 3DS in 2016 by FuRyu.
The House in Fata Morgana would then be brought to the Nintendo Switch in 2021, thanks to a physical release, with Limited Run Games at the helm, with the Dreams of the Revenants Edition offering up more than just the main story, but also comes packaged with both a prequel and a sequel, to help further flesh out the overall story, and then there are additional stories thrown into the mix as well.
Still, on top of inspired storytelling, the visuals are absolutely stellar as well and certainly not something to be sniffed at.
