#5 – Hades
After having spent a few years in early access, evolving in front of its fanbase, Hades did see its final release in 2020. Although the clear quality that underpins much of Supergiant’s back catalogue remains, Hades saw the team break into the mainstream and contend for serious end of year accolades, which included a nomination for Game of the Year at The Game Awards.
Many claimed that they couldn’t put the game down thanks to its addictive gameplay and a story and characters that suck you in. Much of the team felt the same way.
We gave the game a 9.5/10. In his review, Harry said: “Whenever I play a new Supergiant title, I always find myself absolutely enthralled with it, transfixed by its visual allure and engaging gameplay. After playing their second title Transistor, I was convinced that they wouldn’t be able to top themselves, but I stand corrected. Hades is a perfect amalgamation of everything that makes Supergiant Games one of the best independent developers out there, with a killer gameplay loop, heartfelt story, and writing that will have you hinging on every single word. This game deserves all the attention it’s getting and more, and I implore you to play it for yourself.”
