2020 in Video Games

Hi guys, I hope you are all well. You may or may not know that I am a big fan of video games and I’ve completed a fair few over the last 12 months, so I thought I’d share my thoughts on them. This year I’ve really started branching out more so I’ve been enjoying finding new games to play. Anyway let’s get started. 

 


Titanfall 2

Developer: Respawn Entertainment

Released: 2016

Genre: First person shooter

Console: Playstation 4

Titanfall 2 is a great first person shooter with an action packed single player campaign. I didn’t play any multiplayer but I really enjoyed the single player game and would definitely replay in the future.


Ori and the Blind Forest

Developer: Moon Studios

Released: 2015

Genre: Platform adventure Metriodvania

Console: Nintendo Switch

Ori and the Blind Forest is a visually stunning action platformer with great game design, a compelling story and fantastic art style. I died so many times playing this game and there are parts that are quite frustrating but overall I really enjoyed playing this one.


God of War

Developer: Santa Monica Studios

Released: 2018

Genre: Action adventure

Console: Playstation 4

Although this is the eighth instalment in the God of War series, this was the first GoW game that I’ve played. I loved the focus on Norse mythology and found that it was an accessible entry into the GoW world. The visuals were amazing and I really enjoyed the gameplay.


The Last of Us Part II

Developer: Naughty Dog

Released: 2020

Genre: Action adventure

Console: Playstation 4

The much anticipated sequel to the Last of Us, this game was a little mixed for me. The gameplay, itself, as amazing and the environments were incredibly well done – it is clear the amount of work that has gone into this game. Having said that, the storyline didn’t quite fully work for me. Here is a link to my full thoughts on this game.


Ghost of Tsushima

Developer: Sucker Punch Productions

Released: 2020

Genre: Action adventure

Console: Playstation 4

Ghost of Tsushima is probably my favourite game of the year. This is another visually stunning game and I loved exploring the world. The story is a compelling one with interesting characters at its centre and great pacing. Basically I really enjoyed this game.


Spiritfarer

Developer: Thunder Lotus Games

Released: 2020

Genre: Indie management sim

Console: Nintendo Switch

Spiritfarer is a super chilled management game about death – you play as Stella, the new ferrymaster to the dead. This is a great game to just chill with. You can farm, mine, fish, cook etc, as well as befriend spirits before releasing them to the afterlife.


Ori and the Will of the Wisps

Developer: Moon Studios

Released: 2020

Genre: Platform adventure Metriodvania

Console: Nintendo Switch

Sequel to Ori and the Blind Forest, this was a fantastic second instalment to this world. I really enjoyed the new gameplay mechanics and loved being able to explore more of this world. Once again the art style is stunning and I thought the new storyline was well done. Just like with it’s predecessor, I died a lot in this game but still really enjoyed it.


That’s it for today. I think I played more video games this year then I ever have before – I’ve really started getting into checking out new games, instead of replaying favourites every so often. Do you guys play video games? If you do, what’s your favourites? Let’s chat in the comments. I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.
