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.

#2 – Ghost of Tsushima

Ghost of Tsushima was the swan song of Sony’s first-party PS4 offering. In what was quite a departure from Sucker Punch’s inFAMOUS and Sly Racoon games, Ghost of Tsushima was loved by pretty much all who played it thanks to its combat and stunning visuals.

Later in the year, the game got a surprise multiplayer update in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, which breathed a whole new life into the game, and made it a standout for the year all over again.

Kieron gave the game an 8.5/10 in his review and said: Ghost of Tsushima might be built from the same stuff as its AAA, open world contemporaries, but that doesn’t stop it from being one of the best open world experiences of the generation. Sucker Punch has set its samurai fantasy apart by presenting players with a beautiful world that is rewarding to explore, with many mysteries to uncover. Jin’s story is a compelling tale pulled from the pages of the epics, and it’s just one of many that the game has to offer. The game isn’t perfect, but it’s not often I spend upwards of 50 hours playing an open world game to total completion and immediately want to jump back in, even if it’s just to sit and watch the breeze roll by.

The game currently is sitting on an 83 on Metacritic.
