Top 10 games of 2020
2020 has been sheer madness, there is no doubt about it. The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc across all industries, not even the video game industry itself getting rid of it. Many games have had their releases affected due to the virus and there were even fears of a delay in the arrival of the Xbox Series X and Playstation 5.
Despite the issues, we can’t complain about 2020 when it comes to launches. Many developments came out and entered the list of best games of the generation. Cyberpunk 2077 was one of the protagonists that closed the year, with more shadows than lights, undoubtedly being one of the games we will be talking about at the start of 2021.
With all of this and around 12 months of ups and downs, we bring you what we think are the best video games of 2020.

Nintendo surprised us with the surprise announcement of Paper mario, the return of one of his most beloved RPGs of late. And although it includes a series of changes to its gameplay, its playable and even graphical style has managed to leave many fans speechless. In fact, his good grades and even the warm welcome from the players can make him one of the candidates for GOTY.
9. Cyberpunk 2077
Cyberpuk 2077 It turned the industry upside down. As the world braced for what was to be a transgressive, narrative game, CD Projekt RED’s plans failed. The launch of the video game was clouded by the bugs and performance of working on the latest generation consoles, making the experience difficult. However and despite this, Cyberpunk 2077 is without fear of being one of the most immersive and fun games of recent years, at least in its version for PC, in addition to the PS5 and the Xbox Series X thanks to the backward compatibility.
8. Assassins Creed Valhalla
After months of rumors and some secrecy from Ubisoft with its new job, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla it came to consoles and computers introducing what many gamers were asking for: maintain the RPG factor and introduce enough changes to make the exploration experience easier.

7. Persona 5 Royal
Persona 5 is a treasure, one of the best JRPGs of the decade, with over 100 hours of content, unforgettable characters, a unique artistic style … How to improve it? With a version that further expands this content and finally with the on-demand version with texts in Spanish. 5 Person Royal will be the gateway to this saga for many new players, now that the language barrier no longer exists. Over 150 hours of high quality Japanese RPG, now the challenge is to be able to dedicate it to them.
6. ghost of Tsushima
Sucker Punch left us speechless with the premiere of Ghost of Tsushima, a title that takes us to feudal Japan with a history that has already managed to fascinate the whole world. Its environments, its fights and the care taken to every detail have succeeded in making this PlayStation 4 exclusive one of the big surprises of the year, especially since it will soon include a multiplayer mode which, like its creators indicate, seeks to add new experiences.
5. DOOM Eternal
If you grew up in the 90s with a crisp shot enjoying the early days of the shooter genre on your PC, DOOM Eternal is surely the most satisfying thing you are going to play in 2020. It is difficult to achieve the level of balance that id Software has achieved with this new installment, which takes the playable formula of DOOM even further (2016 ), with a game full of action and tension, a remarkable story and better level design. 2020 brings us one of the best sci-fi shooters of the past decade.

However, luckily, Nintendo Switch owners received one of the best titles in its catalog this year, the almost perfect Animal Crossing New Horizons
3. Final Fantasy VII Remake
Final Fantasy VII remake It’s not perfect as a video game, but if one has to recognize something, it’s that it managed to agree with pretty much every fan of the original game: it lived up to expectations. That doesn’t mean much if we’re talking about a game idealized by millions of gamers, but the truth is that Square Enix has handled it with the utmost care and detail, exploiting many situations that the 1997 game flipped on tiptoes. Never before have we felt Midgar like in this remake, which lays a solid foundation for the next chapters.
2. half-life: Alyx
Launch: March 23, 2020

The big problem, the huge wall that you have to climb to be able to play this Half-life: Alyx (excluding virtual reality), because it requires high-performance equipment, and of course, an AR device.
1. The Last of Us Parte II
For the moment for us there are not many doubts, The Last of Us Leaves 2 This is by far the best that 2020 has given. It’s the riskiest blockbuster we’ve played in many years and marks a long way to go in storytelling and storyline in the video game industry. Naughty Dog has raised the bar by several inches on how the story of a video game should be written, now the ball is on the roofs of other major studios.
