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.
Microsoft Flight Simulator is the eleventh major entry in the series that began in 1982, and has evolved greatly even from the last official release in 2006. It’s a game that’s different things to many people: an educational tool for learning how to fly before getting in a real plane, a sandbox to fly from virtually any airport to the next, a role-playing game where you’re a pilot transporting passengers to their destination, or maybe just a means to pass the time by goofing around in the air. Whatever it is to you, Microsoft Flight Simulator has returned in 2020 to offer old and new players the thrill of flight. It may be simply named Microsoft Flight Simulator but know it’s anything but simple, as there’s a complex and detailed recreation of all things aeronautics that’s unparalleled.
