Hades is GOTY and isn’t on this list but Overwatch is? Overwatch may have style, but so does Hades, and all I can say is that I’ve played about four times as much Hades despite owning it for an eighth as long. Hades was made by an indie studio without crunch and corporate mandated holidays and easily outperforms big budget AAA in spite of (or frankly more likely because of) it. Cannot stress enough how much more fun I had with it than Overwatch, which whilst stylish has very little to offer outside of its intensely competitive gameplay, which makes it very boring very quickly if you’re someone who only likes to play competitive games some of the time

Ima having to downvote this for featuring TLOU2. How gaming websites think they can continue to get away with giving "Babys first cover shooter with a story that pissed off and alienated its own fanbase" a '10/10 masterpiece' score, is beyond me. The game may not be as terrible as its fan review scores say, but if people are still complaining about the game months later, its nowhere near a 10.

IGN in 2015: Shows the top 10 list on description. IGN in 2021: doesn't show the list so viewers has to either watch the entire video or skip to the part where it matters.

@Random Dude I played tlou2, ghost, doom, ff7 remake, xenoblade de, avengers, re 3 remake, the first two hours of cyberpunk(waiting on a refund) yakuza 7, destiny beyond light, a bit of hades but plan to play lots more and I played some great indies as well. Honestly found most AAA games a bit underwhelming last year. tlou2, ff7 remake and yakuza 7 are my top three. Loved all three of them. Why? What's your favorite game of 2020?

Nickel Dime
Nickel Dime Prije 15 dana
Really neither persona 5 nor overwatch should have been on the list. Overwatch is about a 5 year old game now, even with this being a list of reviewed games, it is far to old to belong on here. And persona 5 royal is just basically a DLC pretending to be a new game, persona 5 was the actual game, the royal part is just DLC and yet for some reason is being treated as a completely new game for lists like this. With so many things like ghost of Tsushima to choose from, you didn't exactly have to make exceptions and grasping at straws for titles of games that deserved to be on this list.
Nickel Dime
Nickel Dime Prije 13 dana
@scamanderous I mean most everything I have seen calls it a DLC, and again, length of time added doesn't really matter seeing as there are DLC with equal or more length and content added. Either way it is added content, there by making a DLC, it isn't a new game, and shouldn't be treated as such. Perhaps it is even the equivalent of a DLC with a bit of a remaster or something like that, but that is still not a new game. If they went and put Skyrim remastered on this kind of list I would also argue that it didn't belong there, given that if is in no way a new game. A remake might be a bit different though, depending on the nature of it, such as with the crash Bandicoot and spyro trilogies since they actually completely redid the games, not just a graphical upgrade.
scamanderous
scamanderous Prije 13 dana
@Nickel Dime I didn't "inflate" the number, it was my exact playtime of the new story chapter. On top of that, as I stated before, there's even more then just the story arc. Going into detail about that would take to long, but I've played OG P5 and Royal, and the changes and added content of Royal are basically everywhere throughout the whole story. Atlus' rereleases are a bit like renovating your whole house, adding a garage and a garden to it and giving it a new paintjob: It's the same building, but that's basically all that stayed the same.
Nickel Dime
Nickel Dime Prije 15 dana
@scamanderous and yet oblivion added shivering isles, which is about the same if not more time, and it was a DLC. Also when you google it, it just says over 20 hours, so it seems you might have inflated the number a bit. Didn't say it wasn't a big DLC, but it is a DLC none the less, not a brand new game. It's like saying destiny is a brand new game every update. It adds a lot of time, but it isn't a new game.
scamanderous
scamanderous Prije 15 dana
25-30 hours new story content (not even counting the tons of new and improved content) isn't mere DLC level. There's so much more to it.
