  The Most Underappreciated Games Of 2021

2017’s “Little Nightmares,” originally titled “Hunger” (per NME), received critical praise for its engagingly macabre world and simplistic (yet tense) gameplay. The story of Six, a hungry little girl trying to escape the Maw, a place crawling with monsters and untold horrors, had fans clamoring for a sequel. They finally got their wish in February 2021, when “Little Nightmares 2” was released. 

The sequel, which follows Six and her new companion Mono, expands on the elements that made the first game so great, from the 2.5D art style to the frightening bosses and a tone that pairs moments of calm with a creeping sense of dread. Some mechanics have been added, including AI-controlled co-op that allows Mono to hold her hand. As noted in CBR’s review, this element specifically separates it from the original game, reminding players that they are not in this alone. The world may be frightening, but these children are facing it together.

Of course, that also means that the moments you have to face alone feel that much more isolating and terrifying. Though fans of the franchise and critics responded lovingly to “Little Nightmares 2,” many still feel that the franchise as a whole is underrated. That’s a shame, because there really is nothing out there quite like this series.
