There’s been a lot to be unhappy about in 2020. Not video games, though.
When it comes to video games, 2020 has been outstanding. This year has given us hit after hit, culminating in a couplet of consoles, the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, that are collectively pushing games in a faster, more beautiful experience for players.
From early pandemic successes like Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Doom: Eternal to the mid-summer madness of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, followed by big AAA hits to usher in the new generation of consoles before the holiday, like Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and Spider-Man: Miles Morales, 2020 hasn’t really given gamers a break. This year has produced something noteworthy for absolutely everyone, from long-waiting Star Wars: X-Wing fans with Star Wars: Squadrons to a return of the spooky series Amnesia for horror lovers and a new Yakuza game for all the eclectic weirdos out there.
