Best Indie Game 2021: Hades
While the big-budget AAA games are often fun, it’s the industry’s smallest developers more often than not that bring the biggest innovations.
This year’s indie darling however, is one that many players would have already experienced on other platforms, but for those on PlayStation it was an entirely new and thrilling adventure. Hades is still an incredible indie game no matter where you play it, and on PS5 and PS4 it really has the ability to shine.
Particularly for PS5 players, the little additions to immersion from the haptic feedback on the DualSense controller are an excellent touch, and the stunning art that fills the game never looked better, running at a gorgeous 4K/60FPS.
