    Just checked my throphies. What a shite year as nearly all the best games I played this year we're from previous years.

    I'll go with

    The last of us 2 even though i was slightly disappointed with it.

    Runner up

    Nioh 2

    Only started recently but loving deep rock galactic if that's 2020.

    I'm assuming Cyberpunk won't be out this year, of course.

    And Flight Simulator 2020 might have done better if it ran a little better.

    Rogue squadron gets a mention too, the VR is excellent but not a touch on Alyx

    Probably Hades too. Nothing has properly gripped me like that, even if it petered off after a few clears.

    Legit struggling to think of anything else.

    Persona 5 Royal for me. Game of the year and the generation.

    Runners up would be Wasteland 3 and Doom Eternal. The latter was a bit of a disappointment, but still generally very good.

    Honourable mention to Flight Simulator 2020, for sheer ambition.

    Edit: Also, feels a bit odd to be doing this before Demon's Souls Remastered.

    TLoU Part 2

    Spider-Man MM has the potential to overtake, but unlikely.

    I have played more Animal Crossing than any other game this year, though it is more because it is relaxing than a great game. Rogue Squadron was okay, but I only played a single play through and a handful of online matches. But the VR, on PS4 Pro, was really good. I havenít given Paper Mario the live it deserves.

    When we say Rogue Squadron, do we mean Star Wars: Squadrons?

    Final fantasy vii remake was probably the most fun I had gaming this year. Deffo the biggest gaming event for me so it gets my vote.

    Animal crossing deffo got the most hours. And Jedi fallen order was great as well. Both deserve an honourable mention.

    Am yet to play Ghost of tsushima or tlou 2 as the other two big releases that immediately spring to mind.

    Cyberpunk I'm guessing will be out too late to be included.

    Will hopefully have given spiderman mm, astrobot and ghost a good amount of time by xmas so may change my vote yet.

    Death stranding, ghost of tsushima or 13 sentinels are the three games that have resonated the most with me this year I think.

    Honourable mentions to Hades and animal crossing (for being a happy place to visit in these interesting times)

    @glo I'm about half way into 13 sentinels, I just wish the remembrance had a little more gaming to it. But am deffo enjoying it a lot.

    @Rogueywon Yes, sorry about that. Posting and juggling texts with my daughter. One of her dogs is at the Vets with liver problems.

    @DakeyrasUK The FF7 remake would have made my list if it had just tuned down the length of a few of the dungeons and made some of the enemies less damage-spongey.

    Cyberpunk's another, like Demon's Souls, that could still make the list. That said, given the development cycle and that CD Projekt Red's track record of truly stellar games is a list of just one, I'm not sure lightning is going to strike twice.

    No worries - I've just seen "Rogue Squadron" a few times on the forum this week and wondered if there was some kind of N64/Gamecube resurgence!

    @bone-on I did the first 3 hours then parked it to focus on the Xenoblade remaster. It did look very, very good and I will be straight back to it once Xenoblade is done.

    For games I enjoyed most it would be RE3 or Tony Hawks but it feels like a bit of an injustice to pick a remake even such well done ground up one as these two

    Beautiful Desolation or Wasteland 3? Cyberpunk and Yakuza 7 soon though... I enjoyed Disaster Report 4 but it clealry wasn't a GOTY.

    I haven't played nor bought a lot of the big name games of the year like Last of Us 2, Ghosts of Tsushima etc. P5 Royal is unplayed and 13 Sentinels is on my Xmas lists...

    Wasteland 3's soundtrack deserves an award of its own.
