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.

#3 – Final Fantasy VII Remake

After what felt like the longest wait, as well as the messiest attempt at messaging for a multi-part release, the first instalment of Final Fantasy VII Remake landed to critical acclaim earlier this year. It felt like a loving recreation through and through without putting the game’s legacy on a pedestal. Instead, it dove headlong into expanding on the original story, updating the original’s long-outdated combat and making it the fullest experience possible.

We’re hoping it’s not too long to wait until we get to see what follows the dozens of wonderful hours spent in Midgard, but whenever it does arrive, it’s sure to be an absolute treat.

We gave the game a 9/10. In his review, Kieron said: “At the end of it all, even under immense scrutiny and in spite of some disappointing shortcomings, there’s no getting around the fact that I had a giant grin on my face for just about the entirety of Final Fantasy VII Remake. It’s an enjoyable enough game if you’re a casual fan of Final Fantasy or action RPGs, but if you’re in it for the fandom you may just have your mind blown. It’s not a perfect game, but it absolutely exceeded my expectations of what a remake of Final Fantasy VII could be. All that’s left now is to (not so) patiently wait for the next part.”

The game is sitting on an 87 on Metacritic.
