When it comes to new games, 2020 has been a great year for video games. Here is a list of IGN’s best reviewed video games of 2020.
Here’s a brief overview of some of the best games featured:
Doom Eternal. This wouldn’t be a best games list without the most recent Doom release from Bethesda.
Persona 5 Royal. The fifth game in the Persona series, Persona 5 really took the game to the next level and can be considered one of the best JRPGs ever made. While Persona 5 originally came out in 2016, P5 Royal added new friends and a more refined experience, which is why it made the list.
The Last of Us Part 2. TLOU was one of the best games on the PS3 and The Last of Us 2 is a strong contender for being the best game on the PS4. Not only is The Last of Us Part 2 gameplay challenging, but TLOU2 also pushes the bounds of what we thought was possible with video game narratives.
Resident Evil 3 Remake. Making this was a no brainer- especially after the success of the RE2 remake. Still, Capcom really hit it out of the park updating Resident Evil 3 for the 2020 audience.
Animal Crossing New Horizons. This Nintendo Switch game has helped a lot of people cope with the stresses of being in the middle of a pandemic, and rightfully so. Animal Crossing is the perfectly polished stress-free reboot we needed of the classic Nintendo game.
Desperados 3. The third entry into the Desperados franchise is a tough real-time tactical game with such beautifully detailed level design you can help but marvel at the beauty that is Desperados III.
Valorant. Riot’s You know this game is good. Based on all the videos that appear when you search “Valorant Montage,” it has to be.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake. FF7 was one of the original Playstation’s best games, and the FF7 remake definitely lives up to the reputation of the original Final Fantasy 7.
Make sure to check out the video to hear about other great games like Half-Life: Alyx, Dreams, and Deep Rock Galactic.
Remember, this list isn’t intended to be a “Best games 2020” or “Top 10” or “Top Games” list, instead it’s a collection of new games that garnered the best reviews from IGN, so far in 2020
