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. To find out about how we voted for our top 10 games of 2020, head here.

#7 – Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Just as we thought that franchise fatigue could start creeping in again, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla managed to improve on Odyssey and Origins and provide a compelling viking story that also doubled as a next-gen showcase. It was one of the first open-world games to be 4K/60FPS on consoles and we’re sure that many people are still sinking hours upon hours into the game.

We gave the game a 9/10. In his review James said: “Assassin’s Creed Valhalla blends old and new to create a unique experience and one of the best Assassin’s Creed experiences yet. It combines series-best combat, a compelling story, and mesmerising locales to dually offer a definitive Viking and assassin experience.”

The game is currently sitting on an 84 on Metacritic.
