Games

MetaCritic’s best and worst games of 2020

The following carefully selected list criteria:

1. Games with less than 20 reviews are excluded.
2. Unless it is standalone, there is no DLC, extensions, etc.
3. Portings and re-releases of games originally released before 2020 will be excluded, regardless of new content, unless they were not available in English prior to this year. Here are some edge cases in the form of a complete remake, such as Demon’s Souls and Tony Hawk. I decided to include these. Admit that the line between “Updated Port” / “Remaster” and “Remake” may be blurry.
4. Multi-platform games are listed according to the version with the most reviews. All other versions are excluded.
