VGChartz’s Evan Norris: “2020 was a challenging, disruptive year that rearranged the cadence of daily life for millions. In this time of uncertainly and upheaval, many folks who had the means sought out art and entertainment specifically video games as a way to find joy and connection in a worrisome world. Thankfully, video games obliged.
Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons took the industry (and popular culture) by storm with its laid-back life simulation. Microsoft and indie team Moon Studios delivered a Metroidvania for the ages in Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Square Enix took one of the most beloved, sacred games in video game history Final Fantasy VII and produced a remake worthy of its loyal fans. And last but not least, Sony sent its successful PS4 console out in style with the one-two punch of The Last of Us Part II and Ghost of Tsushima.”
