In a bizarre, unsettling, and often even terrifying year of 2020, video games have become a haven for many, whether they are longtime gamers, old school veterans picking up the controls after a break, or First-time gamers looking for a safe new way to have fun or connect with friends during pandemic lockdowns.
Below is a list of the best games of 2020. It is worth remembering that some of them were not released this year, but it was in 2020 that they exploded.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2
Nostalgia is big business now, but reworking the old joy rarely delivers the original thrill. But that's something that happens in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2. Against all odds, this remake recaptures the magic of those early skateboarding games, while also updating them for consoles and modern audiences. Playing these games unlocks long-forgotten muscle memory, the hunger for high scores, and the itch to hop on a skateboard — not to mention comfort during a rough year. The game is available for PlayStation, Xbox and PC.
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout
What happens when you combine the mini-game craze of Mario Party with the battle royale and survival-and-win pressure of Fortnite? Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, that's it. Its delightfully simple design has been a welcome relief during this pandemic, and the fact that players often have to cooperate to ensure individual victory belies a deeper message than its cartoon style might suggest. Also, like Animal Crossing, it's a welcome repudiation of the idea that games need to be hard to be fun – they just need to be fun. The game is available for PlayStation and PC.
Microsoft Flight Simulator
Microsoft's Flight Simulator series has been the definitive virtual piloting experience for nearly 40 years, inspiring many gamers to pursue real-world flight training while offering its players a taste of the sky. The latest entry in the series continues that proud tradition, combining realistic flight physics, absolutely gorgeous graphics and the most realistic facsimile on planet Earth to grace a video game for an unmissable experience. Challenge yourself to some of the toughest commercial jet takeoffs or landings the world has to offer. The game is available on PC. An Xbox version is in development.
Call of Duty: War zone
A free add-on to 2019's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Warzone is a Fortnite-style battle royale shooter with enough original ideas to feel fresh. Most Fortnite clones fell short, but Warzone's systems, strategies, and progressions provided dozens and dozens of hours of distraction as we adjusted to spend more time at home during the pandemic. And developer Infinity Ward continued to support the experience with robust seasons, map changes, and new ways to play this intense and addictive game. The game is available for PlayStation, Xbox and PC.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps
The long-awaited sequel to Moon Studios' Ori and the Blind Forest does exactly what a sequel should, building on the foundation of its predecessor to create a more complex, more colorful and larger world. In the game's prelude, Ori and a host of other adorable characters adopt and raise a baby owl. But tragedy strikes when Ori and the little bird are separated. The player then traverses a beautifully rendered landscape and solves a series of wicked little puzzles in a heartbreaking journey of reunification. The scale of the game compared to its predecessor means that some details get lost in the mix, such as the player easily losing some key skills. But the challenges require creativity and the setting inspires awe. The game is available for Nintendo Switch, Xbox and PC.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the latest entry in Nintendo's long-running life simulator franchise. This time, you're dropped on an island where you (and some resident anthropomorphic animals) set out to build a community - and pay your debt to the capitalist raccoon dog that brought you there. When you're not building items for your home, you can enjoy New Horizons' massive community of gamers at parties, playing in the turnip-powered "stem market," and even hosting talk shows on your own custom virtual islands. The game is available for Nintendo Switch.
Deception is the name of the game in Among Us, a kind of digital track where you have the task of “unraveling” the imposter in your ship. Some players, called "Crewmates", are assigned to minigame-style repair jobs around the ship, while the "Impostor" sets out to interrupt and silently kill Crewmates. Do you suspect anyone? Call a meeting to discuss who might be an Imposter, then vote to throw him into the cold vacuum of space, but be careful, because you could be wrong. The game is available on iOS, Android and PC.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales
When you think of Spider-Man, you might be thinking of a nerdy white guy named Peter Parker. But there's a second webslinger in New York, and this time he's taking the mic and taking center stage. Spider-Man: Miles Morales expands on the 2018 hit Spider-Man, putting you in the shoes of the black Puerto Rican teenager after he moves from Brooklyn to Harlem, protecting the city while his mentor is on vacation. The game captures the feeling of moving from building to building and fighting criminals in a wintry New York as Morales faces the heartbreak of an evolving friendship, his relationship with his mother, and his new mandate to keep Harlem (and the rest of the city) alive. ) safe from evildoers. The game is available for PlayStation.
So-called “Rogue-like” games, which focus on difficulty, replayability, and repeat kills, have been in vogue for the past decade, but Hades marks the highest peak of the subgenre to date. In this spectacular racing-based game, players take on the role of Hades' son Zagreus as he tries to escape the Greek underworld, fighting notable heroes and gaining the support of the entire Pantheon. The art is stellar, the varied combat is delicious, and the progression systems are inspired. Hades reinvents how a story can unfold into a game that must be played indefinitely. The game is available for Nintendo Switch, MacOS and PC.
The Last Of Us Part II
The post-apocalyptic The Last of Us Part II goes through huge swings that will surprise, frustrate and even infuriate many players – but they are thought-provoking risks. The sequel follows Ellie, now grown up and still immune to the virus that turned much of humanity into zombies, as she grapples with the consequences of a morally dubious decision made by her father figure Joel in the first game. Ellie is often alone, which is a shame as creator Naughty Dog has historically excelled at building relationships through play in The Last of Us and the UnchartedSeries. But her loneliness serves a larger story: As Ellie loses her human connection and becomes obsessed with revenge, her enemies simultaneously evolve into more human figures. With sympathies divided, the player is faced with a series of devastating moral dilemmas. The end will stay with you for months, if not years, to come.
