2020 was a rollercoaster for gaming. Major titles were pushed back, some came out and were bombarded with glitches. But there were also a lot of great games that came out. In this slogging post, we discuss our favorite games that came out in 2020.

This Slogging thread by Jose Hernandez, Limarc Ambalina, JeffreyHarris and Nicolas Ng occurred in slogging’s official #gaming channel, and has been edited for readability.

What was your favorite game of 2020?

The Walking Dead Saints and Sinners

I’ve never played a VR game, but I would love to. Would you say that this game is VR-beginner friendly?

Would I say that Saints & Sinners is VR friendly? Yeah I’d say so. It takes some getting used to, but it’s a great introduction to what VR can do and very cool mechanics.

Ghost of Tsushima. That’s more in line with what I look for in a video game. Doom Eternal was great too. There were quite a few good new games in 2020, but Ghost of Tsushima was jaw-dropping.

I really enjoyed GoT but I’ll throw out a curveball and say Project Wingman. It’s basically a fan-made Ace Combat with better mechanics and a story as bizarre and incoherent as anything Ace Combat has made. The sound, the music and basically every part of it is better than it has a right to be, considering that it was made by three people.

Jeffrey, I’ve been meaning to play Ghost of Tsushima but I haven’t gotten around to it. I do agree with you that Doom Eternal was great. It managed to stay close to the first game while also expanding on it

Nicolas, I’ve never heard of Project Wingman but it looks incredible!

My favorite game of 2020 would probably have to be Doom Eternal. I loved the first one, and the second one didn’t let me down. Mixing puzzles along with the run and gun aspects of the game made for a fun time.

Hmmm I’ve never been a big Doom fan, but definitely interested in giving Doom VR a shot haha
