I was going to make this the “Top 20 Games of 2020” list, to do a cutesy ’20 for 20′ kind of thing. While that wasn’t a bad idea, and there was more than enough games I would have no problem including, it just felt like cheating. Half the fun of doing these each year is really narrowing down the games that were not only good, but ones I had a deeper connection with while playing. In a year like no other, I’ve determined what are my top 10 games of 2020 that meant.
There are some games that come along that enchant you from the first moment you play them, and that’s art of rally for me. It’s a minimalistic rally game from Absolute Drift developer, Funselektor. Whether you know rally or not, this is a game anyone can pick-up and play by making it as easy or hard as you like. Racing iconic vehicles from the 60s through the 90s is immensely satisfying thanks to the sublime controls and superb environments. art of rally is at the apex of excellence, and not to be missed.
