By now, everyone has done all of their Game of the Year stories. People are still bitching on Facebook and Reddit about The Last of Us Part 2. We get it. You have strong opinions and have a hard time when people disagree with your views online. So we are going a different route because (obligatory 2020 was hard line goes here.) We decided it was better to share the games we played this year that helped us escape from the drama and tragedy of 2020 while getting us closer to January 1. Here are the games that helped get us through 2020. Maybe you will find as much enjoyment out of them as we did.
It isn’t often that a game comes out of the ether and surprises the world by becoming a phenomenon over night. So much of our year is spent tracking release dates (and pushed back release dates) that any game that doesn’t fit that schedule is looked over in favor of larger releases. Enter Fall Guys. A game filled to the brim with fun for the sake of fun and a love of gaming with others that shines through on every stage … for the most part.
In an ideal world, this is a game that wouldn’t even exist. The first Last of Us told such a complete story with such a perfect ending. No one was asking for this. Naughty Dog would need to really nail it to justify this game’s existence. So the question is, does The Last of Us Part II do that?
My wife groaned when I told her I wanted to buy a PS4 for my birthday. She told me I had enough systems that I never touch and asked how would this purchase be any different. I eventually persuaded her, but under one condition – I had to buy games that she could play as well. Woof. My wife is not a gamer.
