12 of the Best Games We Played in 2020

It’s the end of the year, folks! That time of the year when we gather up our favourites from the year and let you know what we loved! This week is the best games that we’ve played in 2020. These aren’t games that were necessarily released in 2020 but we did play them in 2020. So the Kali Krew gathered our games and we’re here to let you know which ones we loved!

Cyberpunk 2077

Chosen by Olly

He hasn’t played this yet but he’s convinced it’s going to be the best thing since sliced bread.

Diablo III: Eternal Collection

Chosen by Gracie

While my husband was furloughed we played the shit out of this game. It was a great distraction. And, while I can’t wait until the fourth game comes out, I think they did such an awesome job on Diablo III with the updates (and ditching the auction house) and it’s still a great game. – Gracie

DOOM Eternal

Chosen by Shawn

It came out the first week of lockdown and it was exactly what I needed. Both a great distraction and a way to take out fear and aggression. – Shawn

Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted

Chosen by Gracie

FNAF: Help Wanted is much scarier than I expected. Seriously. I’ve played the other FNAF games and enjoyed them. They would startle me the first time or two but after that I just ignored it. And the ‘death’ scares didn’t scare me in Help Wanted. You want to know what did scare me? Big, lurking animatronics outside my door. They feel so there. And they feel menacing. It’s weird because of all the games I thought FNAF wouldn’t be that scary but the more realistic ones were not scary and FNAF was. Definitely worth it. Full review coming soon. – Gracie

Glass Masquerade 2: Illusions

Chosen by Gracie

If you like jigsaw puzzles Glass Masquerade is a great, chill game to play. It’s a good game to play just before bed or if you’re watching a movie. I’ve had a hard time concentrating lately and it’s a perfect one just to fiddle with. The stained glass is gorgeous and the music is eerie. I chose the second game because it has Cthulhu (and just generally a creepier vibe overall) than the first game).– Gracie

King of Tokyo

Chosen by Eliza

Eliza thought this wouldn’t count. What she forgot to mention is that it has Mecha Bunnies and Space Penguins. It definitely counts. (And we don’t discriminate games). – Gracie

Luigi’s Mansion 3

Chosen by Sam

Sorry folks, it’s the closest I’ve come to a scary game this year.

Misao: Definitive Edition

Chosen by Gracie

Misao was a weirdly fun game to play despite the heavier storyline. Trying to find all of the ways you could die was very satisfying and the story was great. – Gracie

No Man’s Sky

Chosen by Lilyn

I know it’s been out for several years, but I just got a computer capable of running it and instantly fell in love. It’s the perfect game for me – nothing really scary happens for the most part, and I can just run around blowing shit up and exploring things without interacting with anyone. I love most aspects, including the ability to name everything on a planet, including the planet, Dikdik. Because I”m mature like that. – Lilyn

Star Wars Squadron

Chosen by Olly

Great Star Wars atmosphere, excellent gameplay, immersive VR, and a vibrant, competitive community.

The Testimony of Trixie Glimmersmith

Chosen by Gracie

The Testimony of Trixie Glimmersmith has a really great storyline with humour and horror-themed around The King in Yellow. I know I, for one, will never forget the met golem. Ever. – Gracie

True Fear: Forsaken Souls 1

Chosen by Gracie

True Fear: Forsaken Souls and its sequel, True Fear: Forsaken Souls 2, are really good, really creepy hidden object/adventure games that had a really strong story and great graphics. The puzzles were fun and interesting. I can’t wait for the third game. – Gracie
