InsideSport’s Year Ender- Top 10 best games released in 2020

InsideSport’s Year Ender: It has been the year of new games, and to curb the boredom of a said… what felt like infinite lockdown, video games were the route most millennials and Gen Z took. As a homage to the games that made 2020 possible, InsideSport brings for you the Top 10 games released in 2020.

 

— Last of Us II

An uncompromising, confronting and very occasionally saddening, this game is about revenge and the awful things that humans hold the capacity of doing to each other. The Last of Us Part II challenges the video game convention that because we can control every movement, we are the good ones. One of the best horror games made for any platform.

— Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a life simulation video game for the Nintendo Switch, and is the fifth variant in the Animal Crossing series. Released just when the world was going into lockdown, the users had a great time adapting into the role of a customizable character who has recently moved to a deserted island after purchasing a package from Tom Nook, a tanuki character who is present in every Animal Crossing series.

— Ghost of Tsushima

Ghost of Tsushima is video game comfort food, only with a great story, tight combat, and unique style. It’s a game where stalking the shadows and killing your enemies with bombs and poison is not considered to be the best virtue, but then it is much better than facing them. Its simple beauty, striking colors, and elegant story set it ahead of all the other games in its league.

–Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

Fall Guys is a cartoon game that is full of obstacles where you have to dodge slime, giant footballs and fake doors to earn the crown. It is definitely silly enough to make you play the game again and again. Turns out that light competition, and a little of colour is all we needed for this dreadful year.

— Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is an action role-playing video game by the game developers Ubisoft Montreal. It is the twelfth major installment and the twenty-second release in the Assassin’s Creed series, and comes right after the 2018’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Set in 873 AD, the game recounts a very fictional story of a Viking invasion of Britain.

— Call Of Duty- Black Ops Cold War

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is a first-person shooter video game that is developed by  Treyarch and Raven Software and is published by Activision. It is the sixth installment in the Black Ops series, and the seventeenth one in the Call of Duty series. The game is the direct sequel to the Call of Duty: Black Ops (2010) and the prequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops II (2012).

— Resident Evil 3

Resident Evil 3 is a survival horror game developed by Capcom. It is a remake of the famous  Resident Evil 3: Nemesis from 1999, and looks to follow Jill Valentine and Carlos Oliveira as they try to survive a zombie apocalypse while they are also getting hunted by the intelligent bio weapon Nemesis. The game was released on Microsoft  Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

— Phasmophobia

Phasmophobia is an indie survival horror game developed by Kinetic Games. The game became available to those who were interested on Steam for Microsoft Windows in September 2020. As of October 15, 2020, the game has been a part of many YouTubers’ live streams and was also the sixth most streamed game on Twitch.

— Spelunky 2

Dive into caves, do more things and then die hilariously: that’s the Spelunky loop, and it’s got the interest of many. With many quirks of its own, Derek Yu’s subterranean world is entropic but very conquerable. It has a little of what the original Spelunky didn’t have 10 years ago– it is much like the original one in some aspects and it is so good to have it back.

— Doom Eternal

There are times when you just feel the need to just shoot things and if that is the goal then Doom Eternal is the best video game in a very long time. From the get go you can just start shooting demons with shotguns and plasma rifles while heavy-metal guitars can be heard screaming in the background.
