Finally, the big Game Awards night is here with all the exciting new announcements, reveals, and of course awards. Despite all the exciting new games that debuted this year (2021), there are a handful of titles that just got better and better this year.

The winner of Best Ongoing Game for 2021 is Final Fantasy XIV. The only MMO that managed to make its way in the Top 5 position stunned some of the most popular and loved games like Fortnite and Apex Legends to win the crown for a best ongoing game.

Final Fantasy XIV has been nominated for plenty of other categories as well. The game is constantly updating its content, with each successive update much better than the last one. Whether it is the epic storyline, active endgame scene, or the incredibly welcoming community, Naoki Yoshida and its development team have been able to successfully create a stunning fantasy world. And the award of Best Ongoing Game certifies that.
