What an amazing year to be trapped inside! For a lot of folks, this has been the year for playing loads of games and getting to experience everything on the menu. For me, it’s largely been just another year of juggling responsibilities and doing what I can to make time for games as they come, and probably spending too much time playing older games instead of newer ones. Priorities! This was also the year I finally invested effort into getting my Twitch channel off the ground (sorry for the shameless plug), which did end up driving my decisions to play some older games, and a lot of multiplayer ones.
With 2020 come and gone, there has been a lot to tackle this year both mentally and physically. Video games have always been something that has helped curb stress in my life and this year is no different. I was extremely thankful for the games that took my mind to new and exciting places. New adventures to be had and stories to be told. I also would love to give a huge thank you to all the developers that continue to work in odd circumstances this year and provided us with these releases. So without further delay, here are my favorite 10 games (in no particular order) that I played this year.
