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.
I met a feline named Major Tomcat who was very curious with our group, and didn’t run away when approached. I searched through my inventory for something to give it, and all I could find was a pack of smokes. Hesitantly, I offered them to the cat, and it instantly joined my party. I couldn’t command them, or tell it what to do, but the cat became loyal to us and a Ranger itself. These are the moments in Wasteland 3 that showcase the goofy side of inXile Entertainment’s post-apocalyptic cRPG. It takes itself seriously, but knows when to have fun. It’s clear inXile learned a lot of lessons with Wasteland 2 here, as nearly everything else has had a facelift or a substantial improvement. Wasteland 3 is a deep RPG with dark storytelling, and has damn excellent turn-based combat that’ll have you daydreaming of what you’ll be doing next.
