It’s that time of the year again. Over the next 10 days, we’ll be counting down our top 10 games of the year.

It’s been a weird year full of delayed games, surprise hits, games that have found their feet in 2020, new consoles and games that clearly have launched in controversial circumstances.

This year more than any other, the votes among the Press Start team were split, with no top 10s looking the same. As always, every Press Start team member listed their top 10 games of the year, with points being assigned by order. Their #1 game would be awarded the maximum of 10 points and the values would descend down to their #10 game, which received a single point. Over fifty individual games received votes, though only ten could make the final cut. So, let’s begin.

#10 – Ori And The Will Of The Wisps

It’s hard to believe that Ori and the Will Of The Wisps came out this year, but it released in March and clearly made a lasting impact. From a pure gameplay point of view, the game stands above most others this year as a challenging, yet fun metroidvania title. When it comes to visuals, it’s simply stunning and quite frankly unmatched.

Not only did the game release on Xbox One and PC, but it also got a release on Nintendo Switch where it plays phenomenally and quite frankly the game makes for the perfect portable title. On the other end of the spectrum the game also got an Xbox Series X enhancement where it plays at 120 FPS and 4K, making it look even more stunning than before.

In his review, Brodie gave the game a 9/10 and said: “After the stunning Ori and the Blind Forest, I found it hard to imagine Moon Studios being able to one-up themselves with Will of the Wisps and yet it’s another beautifully crafted chapter in a series that is held so dear and treasured. As a platforming exercise, it’s slick and sublime, it has evolved in subtle ways and Ori’s world has grown a little larger as a result. While Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a sequel that’ll challenge your resolve and temper your spirit at times, its final act will fill your heart and have it bursting with joie de vivre.”

As it stands on Metacritic, the game is currently sitting at a 90 on Xbox One or a 93 on Nintendo Switch, which puts it near  the top of the list in terms of collective scores.
