GameSpot’s Best Of 2020: Editor’s Highlight Awards

Every year at GameSpot, we give a variety of awards to the best games that came out. Aside from our top 10 list, category awards, and overall pick for Game of the Year 2020, we also wax about our favorite games and moments. We’ve already published our Editor’s Spotlight Awards, which features our team’s favorite games that didn’t make it into our main awards. But we also have our Editor’s Highlight Awards, a roundup detailing our favorite moments, game mechanics, and cultural events in the world of gaming this past year.

These highlights encompass a wide range of things that we loved experiencing in games in 2020, whether it was Ghost of Tsushima’s outstanding Guiding Wind mechanic or the first time we celebrated a villager’s birthday in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. This year may have been tumultuous due to the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Still, it was also one packed with some outstanding moments in games and the joyous community surrounding it.

As a note, there are potential spoilers around the games we’ve discussed below, so be wary as you read through our various highlights. But what were your biggest highlights in games this past year? Let us know in the comments below!
