Favorite video game played in 2020?

First I was gonna say fav video game made in 2020. That would go to Doom: Eternal for lack of anything better, that I recall, for me (still turned out to be hell of a good game), but then we all have backlogs and changed to include what actually played and loved this year even if from different year.

Hands down, the below. It is so great on so many levels. Simple, yet complex. And certainly not an easy game. Lots to do and read, but I like the story, came across Alan Wske stuff. That was cool even if never played game before. But, I will. And I love exploring. Shooting baddies. Getting killed. Learning. Get a rare achievement by killing 50 enemies with Surge gun. That thing can do some damage. To yourself too. It was only 15, but diamond and I think less than 1% got. I still donít know what any of that means...

Easily Witcher 3. I don't recall playing anything that was released in 2020 that blew me away.

I have over 130 hours logged playing. The quests are hands down the best in any RPG I've played. It's actually knocked Skyrim off of my favorite RPG of all time

Odyssey without a doubt. And based on the initial chatter about Valhalla, I may not pick that up until this time next year when it’s cheaper and the bugs are worked out. And so far, it does t sound as satisfying as Odyssey.

Control and Nier Automata are tied for me.

Still clearing out the back log.

This may be a dumb question, but does any system specifically show you which games you've played in a certain date range, like this year? It's been such a blur of a year, I don't remember which ones I played at the end of last year vs the beginning of this year.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales by a country mile. I love absolutely everything about it.

Maneater and Astro's Playroom would be up there too.

PS5 might, including games played on PS4 from what I hear, but I haven't played with the feature yet.

Animal Crossing New Horizons has by far, far, far sucked up the most time and it's been enjoyable. I'll go with that.

As awesome as Ghost of Tsushima is I think I'd still put it third on my list of faves this year (I still need to finish it). Top dog, er animal would go to Yoshi's Crafted World. So adorable and fun beginning to end. Also was challenging enough without being annoyingly brutal like other titles.

Most disappointing game I played this year would be Super Mario Odyssey. It just doesn't feel like a Mario game to me. Seems like it should have been a new IP with a new character in Nintendo's large stable of characters.

You could probably tell by achievements. Either on the console or a third party site like trueachievements/truetrophies and sort by date? Maybe? Not sure how you could tell on the Switch though.

Animal Crossing I have played like 15 mins a day minimum since it launched right after the Covid lockdowns in March. Ghosts of Tsushima was fun. FF7 Remake was great.

Control was awful. Not sure why it got hyped.

Due to my backlog, it's pretty rare that I play things as they come out. My two favorite games I played this year came out in 2017: What Remains of Edith Finch and Paradigm.

Same choice here, and also good call to wait. I wish I had not pre-ordered Valhalla.
