1) Animal Crossing: New Horizons:

There’s not much left to say about New Horizons. Sit back, relax, and settle into your forever happiness with all your critter villagers, all of whom you’ve spent months cycling around so you could share your island with your favourites. Such a simple and wonderful game full of good feels. Best game? Definitely.
2) Fall Guys:

Fall Guys is irrefutably, pure chaos. Never before has a game so readily asked you to leave your dignity at the door, and been both the most frustrating yet hilarious game at the same time. Fall Guys is most definitely a “best game”.
3) Last of Us 2:

The Last of Us was one of the most beloved games of the last decade. All the delays for the follow-up were worth it: The last of Us 2 is, at the very least, on the same level of legend as the first game. Utterly fully of heart and heartbreak, the Last of Us 2 has a whole lot of what we rarely see in games.
4) Death Stranding:

Death Stranding had a massive split of opinion when it released - mostly for its monotonous gameplay. In the dystopian future of Death Stranding, a paranormal event has filled the world with monsters called BTs, shadowy, ghost-like monsters, and caused rain to rapidly age anything it touches. Wild right? Yep, even for a Hideo Kojima game. But still one of the best games of this year.
5) Doom Eternal:

Doom Eternal is the exact opposite of Death Stranding: fast-paced and flashy, you hack, slash and chainsaw your way through demons on your way through literal hell. The Doom series has come so far since 1993, and there’s not much more to say- except that killing demons in gloriously gory ways has never been so good.
6) Ori and the Will of the Wisps:

Ori and the Will of the Wisps is ultimately a mesmerizing experience. Coupled with the art style, soundtrack and simplistic storytelling, Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a perfect sequel to its predecessor - Ori and the Blind Forest. It is by far the most extraordinarily beautiful game on this list.
7) Paper Mario: The Origami King:

Paper Mario: The Origami King is a wonderful return of the Paper Mario series, with a classic style that we all love. The mechanics and adorably simple tone are the perfect comfort. All-round Paper Mario: The Origami King is a brilliant game.
8) Among Us:
Check out the official among us announcement trailer HERE
Among us took the world by storm this year. Although released a few years ago, the game's popularity skyrocketed a few months ago when a few popular streamers and youtubers picked it up and put a spin on the meeting function; using a voice call instead of the written in-game chat to communicate. This, coupled with the games mobile compatibility has meant that multitudes of people can get online and murder their friends (for fun, of course). Among us goes to show that sometimes it's not about realistic graphics, and we are absolutely loving this who-done-it game.
9) Assassins Creed: Valhalla:
Assassins Creed: Valhalla is wonderful to play if you've always wanted to be a Viking. Not only are the graphics amazing, but the story has been praised by critics and gamers alike. We love the customisation options in the game, and it definitely has a spot on the top 10 games of 2020!

10) Cyberpunk 2077
Cyberpunk 2077 finally came around, and after such a long wait (years, in fact), we can safely say it deserves to be on this list. Along with Johnny Silverhand, Cyberpunk 2077 is next gen in every sense of the word; gameplay, graphics, design, everything has been spectacular on PC. Although there are clear issues relating to console play, Cyberpunk 2077 has a unique, futuristic and classically fun vibe to it, and therefore it take's it's rightful place amongst the top games of 2020.
