What’s a Thursday without another exciting episode of The Game Informer Show? We’re back to our regular scheduled release and today we’re diving into our impressions of Forspoken, Sifu, and our Game of the Year pick for 2021. That’s not all though. Jill, John, Stadnik, and Van Aken are here to go over their personal top ten lists and discuss what games made a huge impact on them in a stacked year. Later in the show, Marcus, Dan, and Kim join the madness to recap who won The Game Awards predictions from a few weeks ago and wrap the proceedings with another fun section of Listener Questions!
