The last year has been unprecedented in a lot of ways as the world continues to deal with a global pandemic. The ride has been pretty wild in the games industry as well, as the reality of COVID has changed the way games are made, along with every other aspect of life. Despite the big changes, though, 2020 saw a number of top-tier game releases–many of which have helped people deal with on-going stay home orders and greatly diminished social interactions.
As 2020 draws to a close, we’re doing what we always do around this time and highlighting the year’s best games. You can check out the peak of what 2020 had to offer with our Best Game of 2020 nominees list, although that’s just the tip of the iceberg of great titles the GameSpot crew enjoyed over the last year. For PC players, 2020 was filled with great games, and below we’ve compiled a list of all the titles we reviewed this year that scored better an 8 out of 10 or better. If you’re looking for a list that’s platform-agnostic, check out our complete list of every game that received an 8 or higher in 2020.
