Top Games From 2020 You Should Have Played but (Probably) Didn’t

3. Pikmin 3

It probably isn’t a stretch to assume you’ve played the Pikmin franchise at some point. But as was the case with other Nintendo titles released this year, Pikmin 3 on Switch came and went with nothing but a whimper. If you’re a veteran of Pikmin or just curious to see what those colorful little creatures are about, though, there’s now no better way to get involved. And with the all-new coop mode added for the entirety of the story, folks have been saying that Pikmin 3 has been their top choice for a 2020 game to play with the family.

2. Kentucky Route Zero

Kentucky Route Zero is the most unique title you’ll find on this list. It might be the most unique game of the year. It’s not that Kentucky Route Zero does anything groundbreaking with its gameplay. It’s that you only see writing like this once in a generation. And it is hard to put into words just how memorable your trip with Conway down the Interstate 65 is; How compelling his tale becomes. Kentucky Route Zero is something you simply need to experience to understand. Just don’t say we didn’t warn you.

1. Half-Life: Alyx

According to our Editor-In-Chief, Paul Sullivan, Half-Life: Alyx is the best Half-Life game ever made. I won’t attempt to argue this, as I haven’t played it. And you, probably, haven’t either. Not for lack of wanting, by any means. But you’d have to be Jeff Bezos’ child to afford a rig that could properly run this thing. If you’re lucky enough to have one, you know what I mean.

But if ever you do get the chance to play Half-Life: Alyx, please, do so. It is the first of its kind to genuinely showcase what is capable of VR. There’s no better representation of what VR will bring in the future. Check out our review, and then set up an appointment with your financial advisor.
