Good list.

Hades is great.
Ghost of Tushima is one of the best games I've played this decade, and ever.
Missing 13 Sentinels Aegis Rim which is a shame. Also one of the best games I've ever played.

The fact they had trouble choosing a top pick and had to divide it between Ghost of Tsushima, FF7 Remake and Wasteland 3 shows 2020 was an amazing year for gaming.

The fact that Ghost of Tsushima was last means that Ghost of Tsushima is his game of the year. Not tied with the other 2. He's not fooling anybody, we know.

Not even sure I bought ten 2020 games.

Predator: Hunting Grounds
Nioh 2
Ghost of Tsushima
13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim
My Hero One's Justice 2
Silver Falls: 3 Down Stars

Yeah, that's it and the only other games that could make the list once I get around to playing them are Sakuna, Deadly Premonition 2, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, and Empire of Sin.

That would just make 10 in total. Man, what a weak year.

Ghost of Tsushima aged like a fine wine for some reason.

When that game first came out it felt like it was Ubisoft lite.

Have we ever seen an 83 metascore game get this many gotys?
Yes quite a few with the most recent ones being Control and Death Stranding last year which won far more

Surprised to not see Cyberpunk in there

His review was pretty positive, criticizing it mainly for the bugs

Some of his choices are interesting. Horizon PC? Ehhh

But oh well, his list. Mine would be very different.

Don't really get the GoT love to be honest. It's a good game but I found nothing really outstanding about it. Combat the tasks around the world got super repetative very fast.

Respect for this list.
Wasteland 3 is a masterpiece. Well deserved.

I think as far as open world games go. GoT has the best combat of the lot. Also it's a unique setting that is aesthetically very pleasing. Story is decent too.

Not sure I'd put it as my game of the year though.

Didn't know Skill Up's list represented everyone in the world. Must be talking about your fantasy world.

You guys are touchy when it comes to that game, huh? What I said is literally impossible. Like your bad game, I like bad ones too.

Nah, Dragon's Dogma is miles better. Agree on the rest tho, that game is pretty as fuck and the story was nice enough, but not GOTY material imo.

He is a cunt for having an opinion? Honestly, between the two of you, you seem like the bigger cunt...

He is obviously a transphobe for not liking The Druck's mastapiece so yeah.

Was it really that bad, or is this the usual elitist bullshit we see on GAF?

"Oh it screen teared one frame. It's unplayabale'
Nah this was literally unplayable for me. You're probably thinking of Cyberpunk which worked fine for me on the same PC.

Presumably he didn’t review Half Life Alyx.

Hades definitely feels it’s getting overrated. I enjoyed it; fun game, but I’m surprised at
the levels of effusive praise.

It wasn’t *that* bad, but I did return it on Steam.

It wasn’t well optimised, so rigs that should have melted the game we’re struggling with frame rates in the 40s.

I think it’s been improved now, so I might give it another go.

Good list! Though I was surprised Demon's Soul's wasn't even mentioned. But I also understand, haha.

Wow only 10? Usually Geoff Keighly Jr here loves all the games and shames on fans for not liking them.
