During this period when the playing rate of computer games peaked, game sales also increased significantly. In 2020, game sales increased by 29 percent compared to the previous years. The breezes of 2020, when the game industry is experiencing its golden age on the sales side, continues in 2021. We have compiled a list of the top 10 best-selling games of 2021 for you, with many new games available for sale.
# 1 Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War was at the top of our list. Cold War, the fifth game in the Black Ops series, went on sale in November 2020. The game, which entered the top 10 best-selling games list shortly after its release, reached the top by 2021.
The game that Call of Duty fans finish the story mode and enjoy on the multiplayer side is based on the cold war. While the war between East and West is discussed in the game, our main enemy is Perseus. It is our team’s task to stop Perseus, who aims to infiltrate the whole world with the assassination plan he prepared.
It is a nice detail that names such as former US president Ronald Reagan are featured in the game. However, although the story mode is a bit short, it saddens the fans, but things are changing on the multiplayer side. If you have enough budget and system, you should definitely play the game, it will be remembered for many years.

CD Projekt RED is trying to eliminate existing problems with the updates it currently publishes.
The game set in Night City has a huge map. CyberPunk 2077, where we control the mercenary “V” character, is one of the rare games in which the story is shaped according to your choices. You can be a smuggler if you want, or you can be a businessman working for a high-level company. In addition, even if you say everything I can do, the story of the game is shaped accordingly. The main goal of the game is to find an implant that is considered the key to immortality. But you’re not just looking for the implant, so your choices will have serious significance and cost.

Spider-Man Miles Morales is a little different from other games in the series. While managing the character of Peter Parker in almost all games of the series, we go on adventures with the 17-year-old Miles character in this game. The reason for this is shown to be that Peter Parker should go on a mission as a photographer. While Peter is away, the security of New York City is entrusted to 17-year-old Miles.
