PlayStation developers’ favorite games of 2020

Guerrilla, Naughty Dog, Santa Monica Studio, Sucker Punch, Capcom, and more studios share personal picks

Despite the rest of 2020, the past 12 months have been rich with immersive video game worlds, inspiring characters, compelling gameplay mechanics, and fantastic soundtracks. You’ve already told us what your highlights are. Now leading developers in the industry share their personal PlayStation picks from the class of 2020*.


Call of Duty: Warzone


PlayStation developers’ favorite games of 2020

As chosen by…

“As somebody who typically doesn’t play multiplayer, I not only surprised myself with how many hours I logged in Warzone this year, but how profoundly meaningful it all was. On its surface, Warzone combines the battle royale genre with Call of Duty’s rock-solid mechanics, gunplay, and audio design, making for a very potent (and addicting) combination.

“In 2020, however, Warzone became much more than a ‘game’ for me—it launched right around the time Covid-19 hit Seattle and we all went into lockdown, which just so happened to be when Camouflaj was due to wrap up development on Marvel’s Iron Man VR. My colleagues and I got into a fun habit of unwinding in Warzone after a long day of remote work. The game became our virtual afterhours hangout where we’d find ourselves having really heart-to-heart conversations while blasting our way out of spicy firefights.”

Ryan Payton, Director, Camouflaj – Marvel’s Iron Man VR

“Since the month of April a few close friends and I play it about two to four times a night around 10pm for a few hours. These late night gaming sessions have been instrumental in keeping me sane during a very difficult year. We’re absolutely focused on getting that win but, we also just talk about the most random stuff and just laugh non-stop. It’s a release, it’s relaxing, it’s comforting and it’s just positive vibes. Video games have always been a participatory medium and a form of escapism. What I didn’t foresee happening is video games becoming another instrument in mine and so many others mental health toolbox this year. For those reasons Warzone was and still is my favorite game of 2020.”

Ramone Russell, Product Development Communications and Brand Strategist, San Diego Studio – MLB The Show 20


Demon’s Souls


PlayStation developers’ favorite games of 2020

As chosen by…

“Although there were many amazing games this year, my favorite has to be Demon’s Souls. I never played the original, but got hooked on these types of games when Bloodborne came out in 2015, so getting a new PS5 was even more exciting because I got to play Demon’s Souls for the first time. Oh, and it also looks amazing. Incredible job by Bluepoint Games!”

Jason Connell, Creative Director & Art Director, Sucker Punch – Ghost of Tsushima

“For me it’s got to be Demon’s Souls. Its worlds are as terrifying as they are beautiful. There are few games which give you that same tension, that sense of foreboding. The moment you think you’re getting somewhere you’re put firmly back in your place. It’s always keeping you on your toes. It’s stunning, punishing, awe-inspiring, and when you do finally defeat that seemingly impossible boss it’s incredibly rewarding. You really feel like you earn your victories. This game and I have a love/hate relationship. I love it… it hates me.”

Ned Waterhouse, Designer Sumo Digital – Sackboy: A Big Adventure 

“I was looking at a list of games that have been released this year. Most of them I’ve finished, some of them Platinumed, some of them are a trophy or two short of the Platinum, and I was (seemingly) struggling to choose which game to pick out as my personal game of the year. But try as I might, I couldn’t get away from the fact that to me, the original 2009’s Demon’s Souls is one of the most important video games of all time and the 2020 remake by Bluepoint Games re-hammered that point home like the Black Phantom Garl Vinland on NG+++ after you miss your parry.

Henri Markus, Game Designer, HousemarqueReturnal


Doom Eternal


PlayStation developers’ favorite games of 2020

As chosen by…

“Doom (2016) was an incredibly tough act to follow as it was such a breath of fresh air, but somehow, Doom Eternal gave me everything that I could have wanted out of a sequel. Instead of just giving moreDoom (which they did completely and then some) they also completely expanded upon the core combat loop of the game; taking the Glory Kills = health mechanic and adding on the additional moves to provide armor and ammo, which fundamentally changed how you interacted with the combat spaces in comparison to its predecessor.

It constantly has you thinking while also moving and shooting – evaluating your own resources in the midst of combat. Combining that fundamental change with just a hilariously over-the-top feel of ever-increasing scope and scale made for a truly memorable experience this year. Plus… you have to love a game that has something called a ‘Super Gore Nest’.  Somehow balancing the line between reverential, serious, over-the-top, and absolutely ridiculous – Doom Eternal was definitely an achievement by the team at id.”

Louis Studdert, Producer, Toys for Bob – Crash Bandicoot 4


Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout


PlayStation developers’ favorite games of 2020

As chosen by…

“The rules are simple, the gameplay is wild, and you can enjoy it with your entire family. The combination of old and new elements – gameplay that focuses on a balance of luck, mastery of action, and strategy – is great. I think it’s fantastic that your luck depends a lot on the physics of interacting with other players, making it hard to direct your frustrations at the game itself. It’s been awhile since I’ve been this vocal while playing a game.”

Hideaki Itsuno, Director, Capcom – Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition

“I got caught up in the hype and started playing the game and before I realized it, I had spent an entire night trying to clinch that crown…”

Naoki Hamaguchi, Director, Square Enix – Final Fantasy VII Remake


Ghost of Tsushima


PlayStation developers’ favorite games of 2020

As chosen by…

“It was visceral and precise like the blade itself. Legends was the best co-op experience to date with friends.”

Keith Lee, CEO, Counterplay – Godfall

“Not only can you see Sucker Punch Productions’ technical finesse in this game, but I really felt their strong commitment to craftsmanship. Even as a Japanese person, I really enjoyed this game as a historical piece.” 

Masayoshi Yokoyama, Designer & Writer, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio – Yakuza: Like A Dragon

Ghost of Tsushima really left an impression on me. It was a completely new game set in Japan during the Kamakura period, which I imagine was no easy endeavor for Sucker Punch to undertake, and they did a fantastic job with the stunning visuals and highly polished gameplay. Here at Team Ninja, where we have worked on a lot of sword fighting action, we were really impressed with the game overall, and strive to create a title with as much ‘honor’ as Ghost of Tsushima.”

Fumihiko Yasuda, Producer, Team Ninja – Nioh 2

“Ghost of Tsushima is a game that has a special place in my heart. Everything in the art style, characters, music helps realizes the samurai setting perfectly. It was one of my most anticipated games for 2020 and Sucker Punch delivered it.”

Rafael Grassetti, Art Director, Santa Monica Studio – God of War 

“Hopping into Tsushima and clearing out Mongols from camps is exactly the therapeutic gameplay I needed in 2020. The world is beautiful, there are tons of things to discover, the combat is fluid and surprisingly deep, and I can feel like I’m actually accomplishing something turning the entire map from red to white! Sucker Punch really delivered on the samurai fantasy.”

Kurt Margenau, Co-Game Director, Naughty Dog – The Last of Us Part II


Ikenfell


PlayStation developers’ favorite games of 2020

As chosen by…

“I’m tempted to give GOTY to the nostalgic grand slam that is Final Fantasy VII Remake, but my heart was stolen late in the year by Ikenfell! I was drawn in by the cool tactical approach to RPG combat, but before I knew it I was engrossed in the story of troubled magical youths trying their hardest. It’s the best classic RPG I’ve played in years and nobody should sleep on it. Also: killer soundtrack!”

– Kevin Zuhn, Creative Director, Young Horses – Bugsnax


Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales


PlayStation developers’ favorite games of 2020

As chosen by…

“My favorite game for 2020 is Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales because of its diversity, homage to Harlem and it’s always fun when my sons and I can swing through and explore Marvel’s New York City while fighting crime.”

Shaun Escayg, Creative Director, Crystal Dynamics – Marvel’s Avengers


No Man’s Sky


PlayStation developers’ favorite games of 2020

As chosen by…

“My personal favorite game of 2020 is the same as my personal favorite from 2019: No Man’s Sky. In a lot of ways, NMS is the opposite of the games we make at Naughty Dog: rather than every moment being carefully crafted, literally the entire galaxy is procedurally generated. Digging a tunnel to take shelter from a raging radiation storm, barely avoiding freezing to death diving for ancient secrets in a polar ocean, building my dream-base on a forest moon filled with giant squid creatures, quietly watching flying animals flock and undulate with the planet’s ring backing them in the sky… Some amazing memorable moments in that game, all the more special because no one will ever have those exact moments but me. The next-gen update on PS5 is amazing, a great reason to come back.”

Anthony Newman, Co-Game Director, Naughty Dog – The Last of Us Part II


Resident Evil 3


PlayStation developers’ favorite games of 2020

As chosen by…

“I was pretty busy this year, but I made time to play Resident Evil 3 because I loved the Resident Evil 2 remake. I thought RE3 was fantastic, especially given how stressful 2020 was. The combination of horror and action made it extremely cathartic for me to play through.”

Derek Yu – Spelunky 2 


The Last of Us Part II


PlayStation developers’ favorite games of 2020

As chosen by…

“The original Last of Us is one of my favorite games of all time. It really felt like they pushed the boundaries of what is possible in games and kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the whole experience. With Part II, I wanted to know where director Neil Druckmann would take this world. How could he and the team possibly surpass the original, having set the bar so high?

“Well, they did, and I wasn’t let down. Existing characters are taken in unexpected directions, and brand new characters join The Last of Us saga that add spice to an already rich post-apocalyptic world.”

Gavin Moore, Creative Director, SIE Worldwide Studios – Demon’s Souls

“For me it represents the best PS4 could offer, the pinnacle of this generation. It’s just so beautiful in every way, a masterpiece.”

Cyrille Imbert, Executive Producer, Dotemu – Streets of Rage 4

“This game stuck with me for a long time. Humanity is shown from its darkest angle. But in all the hatred and revenge, is also a story of empathy and hope. A thought-provoking masterpiece.”

Angie Smets, Studio Director, Guerrilla

“There’s so many [games to choose from]! I *just* platinumed Astro’s Playroom – and that was fantastic – a real love letter to the history of PlayStation…. But probably the highlight of my year was seeing the continuation of the Joel/Ellie story in the sequel to the Last of Us.”

Stuart Whyte, Co-Studio Head, London Studio

“The narrative masterpiece that is The Last of Us Part II. One of the only games where I don’t find myself trying to analyze game loops or reading Reddit about min-maxing builds. A game where I sit back and willingly surrender myself to the brilliant minds at Naughty Dog.

Also, my wife agreed that if we ever have a daughter, her name would be Ellie. (If you’re reading this, it’s on the internet now. No take-backs).”

Jason Chuang – Senior Product Marketing Manager, miHoYo – Genshin Impact

“I was blown away by the experience, by far my favorite of the year. I have always loved the craft and attention to detail Naughty Dog puts into every game they make and with The Last of Us Part II has set the bar, once again, for what our industry can accomplish.”

Brian Horton, Creative Director, Insomniac Games – Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales


Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2


PlayStation developers’ favorite games of 2020

As chosen by…

“Revisiting THPS 20 years later has been like some kind of hallucination. I sank 4 trillion hours into this series on the original PlayStation, and the gameplay feels just as snappy and endorphin-inducing as it did in my nostalgia-tinted memories of yesteryear.”

Anthony Pepper, Senior Designer, Mediatonic Game – Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout 

—–

And while most of the creatives who kindly took the time to contribute to this article managed to boil down their favourite game of the year to just one title, some found the decision impossible. We made a rare exception and didn’t force them to choose. Here’s what they had to say: 


Persona 5 Royal and Streets of Rage 4


PlayStation developers’ favorite games of 2020

As chosen by…

“I tend to enjoy games that I can share with my family, so it’s really a toss up between two titles for this year – Persona 5 Royal and Streets of Rage 4. I played the original Persona 5 when it released in Japan back in 2016 and Royal has even more content and story. My wife and five year-old daughter loved watching the characters interact and the well-developed story unfold. I must have played for over 230 hours!

Streets of Rage 4 is a fun action game that has local co-op and it’s great to share the experience with the fam. The controls are simple enough for my daughter to play, and she’s pretty good. I personally love the throwbacks to the original. The nostalgia is heavy with a booming soundtrack and homages to the originals.”

Peter Fabiano, Producer, Capcom – Resident Evil 3


Final Fantasy VII Remake and Ghost of Tsushima


PlayStation developers’ favorite games of 2020

As chosen by…

“It is so hard to pick one, as there are so many good games that shipped this year… if I go with my heart it will have to be Final Fantasy VII Remake. For me it was a massive hit of nostalgia. I was always a big fan of the series even from the very first one! But if I go with my soul, Ghost of Tsushima as it was so well done. I really like how they took this theme and expressed it in mechanics and systems beautifully.”

Benoit Richer, Co-Dev Game Director, Ubisoft – Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us Part II


As chosen by…

“This is tough. I will get in a lot of trouble for making choices like this, but I can’t decide between Ghost of Tsushima or The Last of Us Part II. Ghost was such an enjoyable experience – I am so happy for the team at Sucker Punch at the way that has gone for them. Exploring 13th century Japan felt unique, and it’s such a beautiful game as well. The cinematic Kurosawa Mode just felt so cool. And The Last of Us Part II was a very intense experience. Not just because the story and characters were gripping, but also because the world itself was so detailed. It’s the kind of memorable experience you get from being dragged way outside of your comfort zone.

“In fact, you cannot expect me to choose just one game here. So I am not going to. Btw, I am also very impressed with the work that Sucker Punch and Naughty Dog did to make both titles run so well on PS5.”

Hermen Hulst, Head of PlayStation Studios

  • Why don’t you guys make a blog post where you address how you’ve abandoned thousands of gamers and have provided no explanation as to why you’ve allowed scalpers, scammers, and resellers legitimately ruin the roll out of next gen consoles. You haven’t said a peep about low demand and keep pumping out PS5 material like we all have one. SIE is a joke sometimes seriously.

    • You do understand that Sony does not own retailers right. 🤦‍♂️ sometimes comments in here are just ridiculous.

    • If you are serious with this insane comment, you really know nothing about the world. “Allowed scalpers”. How stupid can a person get.

  • Why don’t you guys make a blog post where you address how you’ve abandoned thousands of gamers and have provided no explanation as to why you’ve allowed scalpers, scammers, and resellers legitimately ruin the roll out of next gen consoles. You haven’t said a peep about low supply and extremely high demand and keep pumping out PS5 material like we all have one. SIE is a joke sometimes seriously.

    • They Should have let playstation players get it first like some registration you had to do because all thease pc players get it and don’t use it.

    • Erm why should they do that? They should apologise for the success of their marketing and business model? You sound like you want some government roll out of ps5s lol. They’re a business. If they’ve sold out of stock that’s a good thing for them.

  • Cool to see opinions from Team Ninja and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio staff.

  • You should have let playstation players get the ps5 first because all these pc players get them for no reason and don’t use it. But when will you restock on the ps5 because I look everyday online so my mom can buy it for me but it’s always the same it’s been like that for weeks now “Sold out”

  • Don’t care what people or anybody says TLOU2 is…ahem*…not a good game. It wasn’t breathtaking, courageous, or innovative. Simply put, it’s a joke, something that no one but a small percentage want…if that. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I Am Mayo is a better game.

    • Its a game. You did not like it, other people did. Relax its over. go play something else.

    • Well duhhhh kiddo of course I’m playing something else, that’s a no brainer. Point being, it got game of the year which it is not, it just shows how bad the VGA’s are rigged. And if you think I’m freaking out lol sure buddy. The game gets too much recognition, it’s not that good that’s all I’m saying and that’s facts. Next you’re gonna tell me Ms. Marvel was a good movie…sigh*

    • And you have not even played the game. Just checked your trophy list. So again, why do you people, who have not even played the game, care so much if others like it?

    • Ghost of Tsushima (also it’s spelled with a T since you obviously can’t spell) was awarded the players choice award not TLOULGBQTXYZ2. Metacritic is joke lol next you’ll say Rotten Tomatoes is a trusted measurement of quality for movies and tv…LMAO only soy boys liked this game and people into dudes pegging each other. It’s going to be forgotten just like that E. T. game for Atari. I can tell these forums have a lot of your kind of people, no wonder the devs are confused on what to do…don’t worry you’ll see a whole lot more of me.

    • And I obviously triggered you…mission accomplished. Ghost of Tsushima (and it’s spelled with a T, since you can’t spell from the looks of it) was awarded game of the year by players so obviously you’re wrong on the whole, “everyone loved it speech” cause not everyone loved it. And I don’t have to play it to know it’s trash, you can look at a trash can and from reasonable deduction realize, “oh, that’s trash” TLOU2 is the same concept. It might be a shiny looking trash can, but it’s still trash. And we’re all definitely entitled to our own opinion, but if you directly respond to my comment expect me to engage you…I’m not a push over and odds are…no we’re definitely going to argue. Especially when it has to do with this. Plus Metacritic is a joke. You probably think Rotten Tomatoes is a good trusted measurement of quality for Movies & TV….lol

    • I do have to apologize about posting twice like that. I guess Sony was checking to see if I was being cyber bully or whatever, figured it didn’t go through. That was actually my fifth attempt to post something so…I had to be sure.

    • Ok, so no response to not actually playing the game. Got it.

    • Yes Ghost of Sushi ( will always be a greater name ) won, its a great game. But it won because people voted alot after a silly tweet from Druckmann. Last of Us had a big lead before that tweet. And The Last of Us Part 2 came in second, yet you act like its a horrible game. So that vote you trust, but metacritic is bad. You sure are hilarious. And once again, you have not even played the game :)

    • And another fact, you have not played Ghost either. So stupid :)

    • Lmao you’re mundane way of thinking and incoherency is beyond saving. You can’t read or spell so…lol soy boys like you will always complain. I did enjoy the laughs lol again you’re using opinions like Twitter and such, only head cases hang out their hoping it shuts down soon. All your “credibility” is a joke at best. Keep it coming sweetheart I’m here ALL day ^_^

    • Yes, exactly what I think too. The mere fact that game won awards after how they treated those who opposed it just shows that the awards was rigged with cash under the table by Druckmann in my view. Yes the game was visually awesome and played well but the pacing and structure of the storyline was in my view rubbish and a downright slap in the face to true LOU fans. Frack Last Of Us: Part II

  • FF7 remake and Cyberpunk 2077 (on PS5) for me. Completely hooked and immersed in the lovely atmosphere.

    Last of Us 2 was brilliant in every aspect but shorter than the games I mentioned before.

    Ghost of Tsushima was excellent too, especially in terms of combat and art, but still just a fairly standard open world game that I feel is a tiny bit overrated.

    • (by a bit overrated I don’t mean it doesn’t deserve all the praise, but that I feel like most exclusives deserve this kind of praise)

  • Here are my favorites:

    Demon’s Souls
    The Last of Us 2
    Ghost of Tsushima
    Cyberpunk 2077 (if it wasn’t ridden with bugs…)

  • Oh, and happy new year Playstation Nation!!!

  • Last of us part 2 is so fun and stuff the graphics are really remarkable they are great and the story is immaculate it’s intriguing for the player to just want to play more it’s amazing
    My overall score is 9.5/10

    • Another great year in gaming. The Last of Us Part 2 is slightly ahead of Ghost of Sushi on my favourite list. But there are a bunch of other great games as well. Im only 1/3 into Valhalla and I really like it so far. Barely scratched the surface of Fenyx Rising and Empire of Sin. Spelunky 2 is a masterpiece. Fall Guys, Worms Rumble, Spiritfarer, Beyond Blue, The Last Campfire, A Tale of Paper. So many great games.

    • Oh, dont know why my comment ended up here but sure :)

  • Sony PlayStation uses a bot “PlayStation safety 2.0” to go threw our complaints an my friend has been banned two times for reporting someone else’s breach in the code of conduct an has been banned for a week the first time an now a month for reporting explicit threats an the bot that goes there the message sent to him was definitely wrong and this is unacceptable!!! PlayStation can do better look into fab_luv_RnJ_420_ as I seen the messages sent to him an his replies where not breaking any code of conduct but some bot says he did please fix your system 2.0 please

  • Streets of Rage 4 is an absolute masterpiece and my favorite game of 2020. I prob beat it 35 times at least, and the online co op functions perfectly…I loved Ion Fury, Assassins Creed Valhalla, and Ghosts of Tsushima as well. Doom 1993 is my favorite gave of all time and I love the rest of series too. Personally I felt Eternal was a good game and had great aspects. However, the resource management between kill types to get ammo, health, armor was a huge distraction that I thought was a constantly noticeable downgrade from 2016 Doom. It forced many of the fights to be tackled in pre-determined ways instead of however the player wants…

  • My top games I was looking forward to were Cyberpunk 2077 and The Last of Us Part 2. But they both Severely disappointed me, TLOU2 more then Cyberpunk. The story was poorly and sloppily written to appease a small group of individuals. Which in my opinion is sad, I loved the first TLOU, told everybody about it, preached how beautiful the story telling was, bought their merchandise, headsets, controller and even found a fireflies necklace, which I thought was awesome. TLOU2 disappointed me so much I ended up selling all my stuff….sigh* Naughty Dog had the chance to make something truly special but they ended up bending the knee.

    • I 100% agree with this. Gaming is supposed to be entertainment and an art form that generally steers clear of personal and political agendas. I would hate to see it go the route the mainstream media and movies have gone. Fake victimization, accusatory witch hunts, and how anyone not “defending the defense” of small groups is a villain. (Also if we’re all going to be honest, all my above statement aside, part 2 is straight up not as well made, fun, or well written as part 1)

    • I wonder why so many keep lying. “appease a small group of individuals” . It got over 70000 positive reviews on metacritic, more than almost any game every reviewed by users. Alot of hate as well but you people keep writing that only a small amount like the game. Its just not true.

    • Maaden, I didn’t say no one likes tlou 2, I only said it is not at all as good as part 1. As for the rest of what I said, I’m not going to explain it as it has been beaten to death already. Google will provide tons of articles on both sides of the topic. I just now noticed while writing this you have posted tons of comments on here berating anyone who disagrees with you, so I’ll just leave it at that. Also, before you tell any other people about checking their trophy list, many people have children, significant others, friends, family at other houses and don’t only play games on their main ps accounts. I bet I have played dozens of games on ps3 and 4 at other people’s homes and don’t bother signing in.

  • Every game has it’s own impact on the player… The games in 2020 were all amazing, and I Loved that I got to play so many great titles with my daughters. The Last Of Us Part 2, had the biggest impact with my 17 year old…. The discussions about the various topics that game brought up, I will cherish forever. The Ghost Of Tsushima, was breath-taking in every way…. And Spider-Man added the final touches to a great gaming year, when the world was at it worst. Looking forward to Horizon and God of War on the PS5 and many more.

  • Hi. I recently downloaded Call of Duty Warzone on PS5 and I’m really disappointed to see that it has no support for 120hz when Xbox Series X has had it for months.

    I read that an actual ps5 port is required to achieve this but it’s disappointing to see that Sony is not doing enough to push activision to deliver this major feature on PS5 that your competition has had for months now.

    Please make sure the developers bring this feature to PS5 it’s a really big discrepancy for those of us who have displays that support it. Fornite has gotten it, so has Rainbow Six Siege, there’s no reason Warzone shouldn’t have this feature by now there’s a lot more active players on

  • I also played TLOU with my daughter she loved it, she thought it was a tv series at first. I explained it to her that it was just a game but she wasn’t really into it. But the more I played it the more she got into it. We started to play it together I played as Joel she played as Elle, she even would get mad at me cause I wouldn’t tell her when I was playing it. People don’t really understand the impact it had on me bringing us together. And when we heard that the second one was coming out she actually bought it for my birthday which made me cry cause I was so happy. Right as we were downloading it we were already talking about how we were going to take turns and we decided that we would play it like we did the first one. It finally finished and when we started to play it within 30 minutes I kid you not my 14 yr old daughter caught on quicker then me. She said that something was wrong but couldn’t put her finger on it, I kind of noticed it too so we played it cautiously. Tell that scene…..don’t really want to talk about it cause I don’t want the wrath of the alphabet people. But yeah I played it by myself for awhile then we finished it together. Afterwards she told me that she really didn’t like it at all, that the story didn’t make sense an the characters are not the same. I told her that I agreed and that I don’t know what Naughty Dog was thinking. She told me and I quote “daddy I’ll play the first one with you but I don’t want to play the second”. I told her she didn’t have too, but it’s just sad that it we found something we both could relate too an Naughty Dog just……dropped the ball putting it nicely. Now we have to find something else too play as father and daughter.

  • Another great year in gaming. The Last of Us Part 2 is slightly ahead of Ghost of Sushi on my favourite list. But there are a bunch of other great games as well. Im only 1/3 into Valhalla and I really like it so far. Barely scratched the surface of Fenyx Rising and Empire of Sin. Spelunky 2 is a masterpiece. Fall Guys, Worms Rumble, Spiritfarer, Beyond Blue, The Last Campfire, A Tale of Paper. So many great games.

    • Your opinion not mine. And what reviews…..from people that aren’t actually gamers just chiming in to defend LGBTQ part 2 oh sorry I’m mean TLOU part 2. Still trying to figure this all out. Gamers choose Ghost of Tsushima as game of the year but the powers that be didn’t like it…..Fact. Check out the game awards if you need proof. It’s getting as bad as the presidential election when it comes to corruption.

    • So everyone who does not agree with you are not gamers, and if a game you dont like win something its rigged. Lol, troll of the year

    • Ok Karen, I guess it takes a troll to know a troll right!!

    • What do you mean by everyone cause in the gamers choice it was Ghost of Tsushima not LGBTQ part 2, so keep getting salty sweetheart.

  • Hi Sony Developers , when will the ps5 be finally released outside of the black market? Long time customers want to buy the console in shops and not be scammed by shady resellers

  • Ikenfell caught my attention thanks to this blog post. The rest of the games discussed I was already familiar with.

  • Can we get the option for alphabetical trophy lists please?

  • When are we going to see January’s offerings for PS NOW? It’s frustrating how lacklustre NOW is compared to GamePass. Like it’s ridiculous

  • I’m about to eat now and monty is about to eat right now while i cook now for chemistry in the house like a race for chemistry and scientific studies

  • Resident Evil 3 has a smoother game flow & better guns than RE2 & Biohazard.

  • I knew there would be people here who have chosen TLoU 2 ha and talking about 1 too lol someone doesn’t know what good writing is…it’s mind blowing how y’all even try to compare the abomination that is TLoU 2 to the near masterpiece that is TLoU 1.

  • “Last Of Us: Part II” 😂🤣 How much cash did Druckmann pay to get this? Last Of Us: Part II doesn’t deserve the treatment it got, as in credit for been a good game that is at least in my view. Where LOU: II fails like rock bottom is that god awful story and characters (personal opinion). I played it without spoilers; still deleted it and regret playing at all. If you like the game then so be it but count me out!

  • I have an issue with the ps store i purchased vbucks but ididnt get any vbucks i try to reach support on twitter and on email they didnt help it has been one month any one can help me with it
