Hades Limited Edition

This product was recommended by Agnieszka Cejrowska from Profesjonalne Pozycjonowanie

Hades had its release in 2020 on PC, which is why I’m including it in the pool. It’s a great title for both fans of roguelike games and complete rookies (like me). Graphics and sound design are a work of art also worth mentioning are that hundreds of lines of text were recorded, and you really have to play for tens of hours to hear repeated issues. The gameplay itself is smooth, wildly enjoyable, and just plain fun. Death is another step forward, not backward. Great characters, humor, and an unusual approach to the theme make Hades a must-play.

Cyberpunk 2077

This product was recommended by Shaun Savage from Try Hard Guides

One of the best games of 2020 for me is Cyberpunk 2077. While the game started out a bit rough around the edges due to bugs, it still told an epic story in a vibrant and dark cyberpunk world. The graphics and visuals are amazing, and there’s a whole lot to do within Night City. The story is incredibly intriguing, and takes you on a wild ride from start to finish. As for gameplay, you can engage in shootouts or you can go into stealth mode and take out enemies in the shadows. This is also where the technology of the world takes over, because you can use your cybernetic abilities to hack computers, and corrupt the enhancements of enemies for your own benefit. You will quickly find yourself immersed in this fascinating reality!

The Last of Us Part II

This product was recommended by Billy Chan from Drone Last

The Last of Us Part II is groundbreaking in both combat and story Despite the controversy over the story, The Last of Us Part II is undoubtedly a pioneer in terms of video game storytelling, forcing players to view the same storyline from completely opposite angles, which some players were unhappy with while others, myself included, found absolutely fascinating. The storyline itself is worthy of an award. Another factor that makes this the best game in 2020 is the extraordinary detail portrayed in the game. Not only does every single NPC have a name, but the almost real reactions each NPC shows in the game, including their facial expressions, battle tactics, choice of weapons, etc. Simply Google the last of us 2 detail and you will find a lot of videos showing the insane details of this masterpiece.

Final Fantasy VII Remake

This product was recommended by Emily Appelbaum from Family Destinations Guide

This is one of the most influential games out there especially for my 12-year-old son. It’s a huge Role-Playing game and it is a very good remake that could yield a lot of possibilities for its franchise. My son and I have played the older versions and even though this is a remake, you will feel that it is a brand new game whenever you’re playing it. So let out that gamer inside you and delve into the adventure.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales

This product was recommended by Carmel Young from WheelieGreat

How’s it hanging? Spider Man, Miles Morales. Hands down the greatest title of 2020 due to a tantalizing mixture of graphics, cinematics, storyline, and gameplay. They really nailed it on this one. Miles Morales is a step up in almost every department from the original. Combat is more fluid, story pacing is much tighter without filler MJ/ Miles (non-superhero edition) missions of the original. It’s essentially non-stop action with just enough slow moments for exposition. The lighting is on point and they really brought everything together with a flawless soundtrack. This was probably the only game in 2020 that I still talk about with my friends and fellow gamers today.

Kentucky Route Zero

This product was recommended by Stephen Curry from CocoSign

It’s the best text-based adventure game, whose one part contains surrealist art and the other part includes a road-trip mystery. This has togetherly created something significantly unforgettable and original. You must play this game because it has successfully spent 7 years en route to a desirable destination that many of us longed to reach one day. The game was ushered in 2020, encompassing all its side stories and acts for console, fetching the dreamlike journey from 5 Dogwood Drive. Irrespective of how you experienced it, this game has a whole vibe and feels like clicking adventure, with nature built-in celestial design.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps

This product was recommended by Demi Yilmaz from Colonist

Not only does this game live up to the fame of its predecessor Ori and the Blind Forest but it goes above, beyond, and reaches new heights. The visuals are breathtaking, the gameplay is rewarding, and the story is heart-wrenchingly beautiful as you follow Ori on another epic adventure filled with riveting challenges. Ori and the Will of the Wisps is an entire experience by itself and undoubtedly proves to be a game that will occupy a special place in the hearts and minds of its players, long after it is over.
