2020 was a year that saw significant disruption for the video game industry. Across all publishers, developers and platforms, we saw a number of delays with some of our most anticipated titles being pushed into 2021.
Still, the year certainly wasn’t short of some great games. Diginade was lucky enough to experience many of these, so read on to see which game took the top spot in our (belated) 2020 Game of the Year Awards.
It should come as no surprise to see The Last of Us Part II in yet another Game of the Year list. Unlike many other outlets, TLOU Part II didn’t get top honours this year but it’s still a damn good game.
Improving upon almost every aspect of its predecessor. The Last of Us Part II takes players on a 30+ hour journey that almost never skips a beat. Featuring some of the best animation, sound effects and performances that we’ve seen in a video game to date, The Last of Us Part II is more than deserving of the praise it’s received.
In our review, we said: “The Last of Us Part II is a wonderful title that perfectly highlights why Naughty Dog are experts in creating story-driven games. Whether you’re a fan of the original or just on the lookout for the latest blockbuster title, The Last of Us Part II is definitely worth the investment.”
Diginade’s 2020 Game of the Year:
It’s hard to believe that this game launched last year, as I feel that it really didn’t get the credit that it deserved. Improving upon the originals in almost every way, along with a few extra bells and whistles makes Crash Bandicoot 4 the best in the series.
The game launched on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in October, but with versions for the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 arriving on March 12, and a release on the Nintendo Switch in the future, we’re hoping the game will get the extra attention that it truly deserves.
In our review, where we gave the game a perfect score, we said: “Crash Bandicoot 4 is everything that I was hoping for. Not only is it a stunning return to form for our favourite Bandicoot, but there’s so much to do here that you’ll have no trouble coming back to the game as you eagerly await the follow up that’s sure to come.
