2020 is going to be a bumper year for stellar gaming entertainment. Find out what titles are going to be the best around with my exclusive analysis.
Gamers are always looking for that new product that takes their experience to a whole new level. Every year, companies battle it out in the pursuit of punters by coming up with fresher ideas, better graphics, lower prices and everything in between. Sometimes, this competition leads to some truly incredible releases that are able to define the decade.
With the first year of the 2020s upon us, what will the average consumer make of the titles to come? I’m optimistic about the future of gaming right now and want to cover some of the better releases that I think are going to blow up. Continue reading down below for my full, detailed analysis of the best games that 2020 has to bring to the world.
The remake of Final Fantasy 7 is likely going to be an absolutely insane product after it being in the works for so long. The original game came out back in 1997 and soon became a cult classic for a variety of reasons – something that fans of the series are really looking to see happen again with the remake.
From the demos that have been provided so far, it does look as if the title is going to have some seriously high reviews – just so long as it’s bug-free and able to deliver on all of the promises the team has made over the years. The release date for the FFVII remake is April 10 of this year, but with one push back already, gamers might be in an uproar if the game they purchase isn’t worth the money.
With the entire gaming world watching, it’ll be interesting to see how Square Enix fares after the release of their title. They clearly understand the gravity of the situation and the importance of the sequel for their fans. Only time will tell what the remake actually ends up being like – but I’m excited, that’s for sure.
Pro tip: if you haven’t already played the original Final Fantasy 7 game, it’s probably a good idea to get it right now and binge the title over the next week or so. Sure, you might enjoy a fresh playing experience with a release you’ve not had any experience with, but why fall in love once when you can fall in love twice? That’s my take, anyway!
Many are calling Cyberpunk 2077 the most anticipated game of 2077 and it’s little wonder why: all the gameplay videos we’ve seen of this title make it appear absolutely incredible and everything that gamers who love this genre want to experience. If you haven’t already, I highly recommend checking out this 48-minute gameplay session brought to you by the official Cyberpunk 2077 team.
Look at the graphics, the city design and the characters you interact with – so beautiful in its own right! The game is slated to have zero loading screens and be completely open world: if the team can deliver on their promises, Cyberpunk 2077 will be a game for the ages that most people will happily pay cash money for in order to access to the DLC they’re no doubt planning to release.
As with Final Fantasy VII, Cyberpunk 2077 has had its release date pushed back from April 16 to September 17, 2020 – if those 5 months don’t make this title the best one yet, a lot of gamers are going to be very unhappy indeed!
Still, everyone out there seems to want to give the studio the benefit of the doubt and allow them to really refine and polish the title off before it’s released to the wild. One thing’s for sure: if FFVII fails to deliver, this will probably be the game you’ll want to be hyped for in 2020. Oh and if you’re really looking to get on the train, consider buying Nvidia’s new limited edition Cyberpunk 2077 GPUs.
If you were somehow unable to get erect while looking at online sex games, perhaps Halo Infinite will be good enough to give you a little downstairs stirring. Halo 5 was the last game released by 343 Industries and that came back in 2015: how will 60ish months of development time fare for the Halo Infinite sequel?
A lot of people have proposed that Halo Infinite will really make or break the popular streaming platform Mixer – Microsoft is betting big on the success of the game with their star streamer, Ninja. There’s a good breakdown of the deal and its effect on Halo Infinite available here from Paul Tassi – definitely a good read.
Gamers who played Halo 5 and were unhappy with the experience will be pleased to know that Halo Infinite does bring back split-screen and a beta will be available before the title is officially launched to the world.
As it’s produced by Microsoft, only Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Windows will have versions of the game available – chances are that cross-platform gameplay won’t be enabled owing to the huge advantage that PC gamers would have over the console plebs. If you’re out of luck because you only have a PS4, consider visiting MrPornGeek – he’ll know what to do.
Okay – so I think that just about does it for the games that I think are really worth your attention in 2020. Now I know that there are some more unique and niche titles coming out such as Godfall, Personal 5 Royal and many Path of Exile expansions, but I just want to focus on what the real hyped options are out there – things that already have Reddit communities devoted to them so you can chat with strangers about what you’re hoping each new game is like!
Thanks for reading and if you disagree with any of my choices, let me know in the comment section down below. Think one of these games should be switched out with something else? Cool – tell me and I might even include your suggestion. For now, though, that’s all from me – peace.
