You load into a match with up to 60 other players, and you play multiple rounds on different maps with the aim of being the last one standing.

Especially during the later stages of a match, where there are only 9-15 people left!

You could have a team knowing exactly what to do and cruise to an easy victory, or you could be on the losing end.

Which triggers you to load up into a brand new match, searching for that elusive victory.

Hard is good

Fall Guys is no joke, it is quite a challenge to win a match; especially considering the amount of luck there is involved to win for certain game modes.

Game of The Year?

The topic of GOTY can be a sensitive one to many people, as some people take this topic to heart.

However, with the generic format being followed each year from these AAA studios, Fall Guys has done something different for once.

It is a game that doesn't strive to be flashy, or immersive, but one that just simply wants to be fun.

And as gamers I think a lot of us forget that this is why gaming is so beautiful and should Fall Guys continue to see the growth and success it has; it should be up there for GOTY discussions.
