Resident Evil 2 remake won it last year
As we’ve talked about often these past few weeks, 2020 was a very good year…for games.
Every system brought it to some degree; yes even Xbox with Ori and the Will of the Wisps. But it looks like Sony is really crushing 2020 with multiple exclusives, including Persona 5 Royal, which is said to be the highest-rated title of 2020 by Metacritic.
In a new exhaustive list you can check out the best-reviewed games by platform. It’s a great snapshot of how each one did, as exclusives generally settled at the top. It also brings a tear to my eye to see Half-Life: Alyx take the spot for PC. Sure it’s restrictive as it requires VR, but it’s good that it’s being noticed. Maybe we have hope for a new Half-Life game after all even if it doesn’t hit all of its sales goals.
You can find the Metacritic best-rated “Games of the Year” in the table below. As a reminder, here’s a look at the worst 2020 had to offer.
