VGChartz’s Taneli Palola: “Many of this year’s best narratives have found success in taking something familiar to the player – whether that’s a story they already know, or common genre conventions – and twisting and changing them in an unexpected way. It could be the way Hades used the repeated deaths common to roguelikes to enhance its narrative, or how Final Fantasy VII Remake took the original story and catapulted it in an unexpected direction. Naturally, there were a multitude of great narratives to experience in video games in 2020, but the following five games were at the top of that list.”
