None can resist the unrelenting march of time. Our political world may feel like a torturous kind of stasis but the natural world continues to go through its motions, hurtling through space at 792,000 km per hour, in a valiant but futile bid to escape the gravity of a ball of righteous golden fire that will one day expand to subsume the desiccated husk of our planet before–
Ahem. In other words, it’s December.
As usual, Critical Distance is compiling its annual This Year in Videogame Blogging end-of-the-year roundup, compiling the highlights of games crit from the past year. And we want your recommendations!
- Game criticism, analysis, commentary, etc which was first published in some form in 2021.
- Works on videogames, computer games, interactive fiction, board games, tabletop, word games, card games, literally any kind of game.
- Written works.
- Audio works (must have transcript available).
- Video works (must have transcript available).
- Works not in English (must have an English-language summary available).
- Things we have previously featured on TWIVGB.
- Things we have not previously featured on TWIVGB.
What Doesn’t Qualify
- Works first published before 2021.
- Works that don’t have anything substantially to do with games.
- Anything which violates our inclusivity statement.
Our Senior Curator and contributors work hard each week to present a comprehensive roundup showcasing the breadth and depth of The Discourse, but we can’t possibly catch everything first time out.

To submit, simply contact us via email, over Twitter, on Discord, or through the form below! If contacting us on Twitter, be sure to include the hashtag #TYIVGB so we know to consider the piece for EOY consideration. The deadline for submissions is Midnight, Pacific Time, December 25th.
