Another year, another top ten.
Getting right down to business, Nikki Waln foregoes any preamble and drops her top ten!
Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat — 2020 was a lousy year, particularly if you lived in the United States, and particularly if, like me, you live in New York. I spent most of the year inside (when I wasn’t working six jobs) looking for something to distract myself from the dystopian hellscape that is the real world.
I originally planned to go all-out and include some superlatives and other categories for this list. After some pondering, I would rather keep it simple but sincere. I mean, that’s basically been my M.O. for the past 9 months I’ve been writing at GameCritics.
I had a strong year of gaming in 2020, although this was almost exclusively based on games released from other years.
Wasting no words, staffer Eugene Sax lays out his top picks for 2020!
I don’t think it’s a stretch to pronounce 2020 a real Low and WTF of a year.
Eugh. I shouldn’t have waited to do this.
This is my fourth year of doing a Top Ten list for Gamecritics. If you are interested in my recommends from previous years, then please go check out 2017, 2018, and 2019. Honestly, my opening piece from each of these entries is feeling more and more like a prophecy of doom, with 2020 actually beating 2019 for terribleness. Well done.
While 2020 stunk out loud, it did provide me more videogame time than I’ve logged in a long, long while. Even with all that extra time, one thing remained true — I didn’t play any of the big hits!
