Watch the Shacknews GOTY 2021 & Extra Life livestream here - Day 1

We're kicking off our Shacknews Game of the Year livestreams and putting money towards a good cause with the folks at Extra Life!


The year of 2021 is nearly at an end and Shacknews is working to close it out right. We’ve got lots of Game of the Year contenders to talk about and play this week, and we’re doing it live on the Shacknews Twitch channel. As a bonus, we’re using our Game of the Year streams for charity with the folks at Extra Life. Tune in to watch our gameplay and conversations, as well as helping out a good cause!

The action kicks off today, December 14, 2021 at 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. on the Shacknews Twitch channel. You can head there or see it just below.

We’ve got a fine slate of games coming up right out of the gate today as well. We’re kicking things off with Deathloop and there’s plenty more great games coming up throughout the day. Here’s the full Day 1 schedule!
