Here we go again. Another year, another top Ten list that I’ve left till tragically late to finish writing. It doesn’t help that so much good stuff ended up coming out so late in the year. But tradition is tradition and here I am, spending the last ten days of the year talking about my ten favourite video games of 2021.Continue reading “Wooderon’s Favourite Video Games of 2021 – #4: Forza Horizon 5”
Happy Christmas. Y’know I am actually glad I have this huge blogging task to keep me busy throughout most of December. Otherwise, between work and all of the family get togethers I would really struggle to find time or inspiration for anything to write about. Having some good video games to talk about is something I always enjoy, even if it isn’t the content that gets me the most views. But hey, do I seem like the kind of guy who has the charisma to be a Twitch streamer?
The number six spot goes to a game in a genre that I, otherwise, have little to no interest in. I am pretty open minded when it comes to video games, but certain genres, sport games for example, always feel like games that get old fairly quickly. This game is one that manages to break away from the dogged annual release schedule and seems fresh despite getting one, or an approximation of it, released every year.

It occurs to me that I’ve been playing Forza Horizon 4 for a few weeks now and haven’t spoken about it on my blog at all. It’s unusual for me to enjoy a game like Forza Horizon so much seeing as how I’m really not a car person, nor have I ever really found myself playing very many racing games growing up, and yet something about Forza Horizon works for me.
The Horizon games take themselves much less seriously than other racing games, taking place in a world where a roaming car and racing festival travels around the world, consuming all local culture and destroying people’s homes and businesses for the sake of millennials smashing their indestructible cars around the landscape.
