2020 is a year in which we can all use an escape. So much is happening in the world, and so much is overwhelming that even an hour away from fate and gloom can be a welcome change. It is a time when video games can seem more important than ever.
Fortunately, 2020 is also a year full of great interactive experiences. That could mean the return of beloved franchises like Animal Crossing on the Switch, Final Fantasy VII on PS4, or Half-life in virtual reality or inventive indie titles such as Murder by Numbers or the last act of Kentucky Route Zero. Even Duty has seen an upswing, thanks to it being free and accessible War zone spin-off.
Just like last year, we keep an eye on the best games all year round. If we play something and recommend it, you’ll find it here on this landing page, which is updated regularly, so be sure to come back. And if you see the little ‘best games of 2020’ badge in a review, know that it’s a title we really love.
