Which one is your favorite?
2020 saw the release of various new games from different platforms and with more people staying at home, many of us have used videogames as a way to distract ourselves from the current situation. This year also saw the release of the next-generation consoles, which gave us (or me at least) more reason to just stay at home.
As 2020 ends, here’s a roundup of our favorite video games of 2020:
The Last of Us Part II (PS4) – It’s rare that games keep you invested not just on the gameplay but also on the story, and The Last of Us Part II does just that, and it’s an emotional ride from beginning to end.
Ghosts of Tsushima (PS4) – Wonderfully animated with a gripping story, Ghosts of Tsushima brings the legend of samurais to life, and does it in spectacular fashion.
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 (PC) – While the game was demanding in terms of the hardware you’re running it on, the new version of Flight Simulator is one of the most accurate simulations we’ve played in a while, down to the great recreations of real-life locations.
Fall Guys (PS4/PC) – This wonderful indie multiplayer brings a new take on the battle royale concept in a game that’s both fun and challenging.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps (Xbox One/Xbox Series X/S/PC/Nintendo Switch) – This sequel to Blind Forest bring everything you loved from the first game and introducing new challenges while also giving it a visual overhaul.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales (PS4/PS5) – Despite being a spin-off from 2018’s Spider-Man, Miles Morales has enough fun and heart to make it stand out from Peter Parker’s adventure. As one of the launch titles for the PlayStation 5, it also showcases the incredible power that the next-gen console has to offer.

Cyberpunk 2077 (PS4/Xbox One/PC) – CD Projekt Red’s open-world RPG may have suffered some delays and numerous bugs at launch, but the immersive world of Night City is just one of the ways to keep you glued to the game for hours.
Resident Evil 3 (PS4/Xbox One/PC) – It may not be as fun as the remake of Resident Evil 2, but there are enough scares and action on Resident Evil 3 that make me want to play it again – not to mention the modernized take on Jill Valentine and Nemesis.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Nintendo Switch) – Nintendo’s island getaway game was a massive hit when it launched and couldn’t come at the right time. While the concept of living life on an island and interacting with a community isn’t for everyone, there is enough to love about New Horizons to make it one of 2020’s best games.
Final Fantasy VII Remake (PS4) – Fan’s wishes were granted when a remake for Final Fantasy VII was announced, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. It brought elements that you loved from the original while adding a modern take on the gameplay, including some of your favorite characters.
