Game of the Year 2021

Each year our readers vote on their favourite games by clicking the heart symbol on each game page. Parents, carers and the wider family come to make their voices heard about the games that matter to them. While this may differ from other critic-selected or more commercially minded game awards, we like to think that the Family Video Game Database game of the year is the one that families pick for themselves.
