Best Video Games to Play in 2020
2020 is shaping up to be a special year for video games. Here are 25 titles that you need to play in 2020...
With all due respect to 2019 and its lineup of great titles, the best video games of 2020 are shaping up to be some of the best offerings in recent years. So we've started a guide to the titles you absolutely need to play next year.
As Sony and Microsoft eye the next generation of video game consoles, and Google prepares to launch its Stadia platform, studios everywhere are preparing to give this generation its swan song while crafting the future of the industry. The result will be a year full of compelling new experiences, jaw-dropping remakes, long-awaited sequels, and a few games that defy classification.
You may be wondering where games like The Last of Us Part 2, Ghost of Tsushima, and Metroid Prime 4 are on our list. While it's certainly possible (maybe even likely) that some of these games will be released in 2020, for the moment, we are only including games that have been granted a 2020 release window or release date. Rest assured that we will be updating this list as more games are confirmed.
For now, here are games you need to play in 2020:
Animal Crossing: New Horizons
We were as surprised, and disappointed, as many were to learn that Animal Crossing: New Horizons wasn't going to be released in 2019, but it seems that Nintendo needed a little more time to get it right. The good news is that it looks like Nintendo is on the right track with this highly anticipated installment. It's been a while since we last got a proper new Animal Crossing game for consoles, and the scope and ambition of New Horizons should make it worth the considerable wait. Make sure to get the best energy drink to keep you awake so your gameplay will last and be at its top.
Have you ever watched The Blob and wished you could play as the Blob? That’s roughly the premise of Carrion: a reverse-horror game in which you control a (mostly) formless being as it makes its way through an elaborate labyrinth in order to survive and punish its captors.
Carrion’s "play as the creature" premise is intriguing, but the heart of the game is its solid Metroidvania gameplay which sees you slowly build your character as you navigate maze-like environments. We can’t wait to get our hands on it.
It's no stretch to call Cyberpunk 2077 one of the most anticipated games in years, and that was true before anyone knew Keanu Reeves was going to be in the game. Developed by the team responsible for The Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077 is poised to be one of the largest, deepest, and most intense RPG experiences we've ever played. Expectations may be high, but Cyberpunk 2077 has what it takes to meet them.
Destroy All Humans! Remake
For years, Destroy All Humans! has been referred to as a cult classic. While the game's unique premise (you're an alien sent to destroy humanity amid '50s Americana) is part of the reason for its cult status, the sad truth is that not enough people really gave Destroy All Humans! a chance following its release. That may soon change, though, like Destroy All Humans! The remake looks to retain much of what made the original so brilliant while upgrading the game just enough to accommodate some necessary improvements.
Dragon Ball Z Kakarot
Not long ago, we would have been cautious to blindly recommend a Dragon Ball Z game, but the success of Dragon Ball FighterZ may have kickstarted a new era of high-quality Dragon Ball adaptations.
Dragon Ball Z Kakarot certainly looks to be just that. Published by Bandai Namco and developed by the team behind the Naruto Shippuden series, Kakarot certainly has the pedigree needed to be an exceptional Action-RPG experience.
Dying Light 2
The original Dying Light was quite the surprise. At a time when zombie game fatigue was in full effect, Dying Light revived the concept with its parkour gameplay, large levels, and a surprisingly solid story.
Well, Dying Light 2 could surpass the original game in every way. Dying Light 2 is bigger and better in all the usual sequel ways, but it's the story written by RPG veteran Chris Avellone and its world-changing consequences that really has us intrigued to see what this sequel has in store.
Empire of Sin
Empire of Sin sees you play as an aspiring criminal overlord in Prohibition-era Chicago who is just trying to make a name for themselves on the mean streets. It’s up to you to ensure that they rise to the top of a criminal empire that’s not lacking in competition for the throne.
With its blend of X-COM strategy action and romanticized ‘20s gangster atmosphere, Empire of Sin offers one of the most intriguing on-paper premises in recent memory. We can’t wait to see whether all the parts come together to form something special.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake
Fans have been waiting for years to get a remake of Final Fantasy 7 and expectations for the game couldn't be higher. Rather than bow to the pressure, though, Square Enix has embraced the idea of completely re-imagining one of the greatest JRPGs of all-time, creating a full-length version of just a small section of the original. While the results will almost certainly be divisive, everything we've seen of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake thus far suggests it's going to be an ambitious and epic experience that may just prove to be worthy of the wait.
Gods and Monsters
One of the more pleasant surprises of E3 2019 was the reveal of the next game from the makers of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Gods and Monsters.
This Zelda-like aesthetic reminds many of Breath of the Wild, but there are reasons to have faith that this won't be a carbon copy. Assassin's Creed Odyssey was one of that series' most fascinating games in years, but it was dragged down a bit by the conventions of the franchise. We can't wait to see what Ubisoft will do with an entirely new world to play in.
Everybody during this world does not need to appear or feel aged rather look young and cheerful. The terribly thought of maturity could be a incubus for all.
