VGChartz’s Chinh Tran: “RPG gamers had a lot to look forward to in 2020 as long-awaited games were finally released. In fact, we may very well never see a year like this again, where so many games from the RPG genre at last got into the hands of gamers who had waited eagerly for years – even over a decade in some cases – for them to come out.
Final Fantasy VII Remake released in April, a whole 23 years after the original first found a spot in the hearts of gamers everywhere. In July, Paper Mario: The Origami King released with a new and unique combat system. November saw the release of Demon’s Souls as a launch title for the PlayStation 5 and showed us why the original launched a sub-genre of games that thrives today. And December saw the controversial launch of Cyberpunk 2077, and those with capable hardware were transported to an authentic cyberpunk city of the future.”
