Letters from the Front

2020 has been an interesting year. A very challenging one and a very historical year, but, in the realm of videogames it has been an extremely good year. From the return of cult classics like Medal of Honor and the return of some very special games like Mafia: The Definitive Edition and Demon’s Souls and the return of Half-Life, we’ve seen some great games release this year.

We returned to the streets of Prohibition America in the 1930s, Animal Crossing blowup in ways that it never did in the past, MS Flight Sim taking us to places that we should have gone to in real life. Paper Mario returned for the first time in years, Call of Duty returned to the setting that made Black Ops popular, and the fall of some great games and the return of some beloved franchises. 2020 has been a great year in this wonderful realm we call videogames. Here you’ll find my picks for the best games of the year by genre, this is the award show you don’t need but the one you want. Badly.
