It’s that time of year again, where we roll out the red carpet and celebrate the best that 2020 has offered us. In a year that has otherwise been so terrible, the fact that we’ve had a steady stream of such excellent games to play has been nothing but a relief.
It really has been a great year for games, from the big blockbusters right down to the most humble of projects. We’ve had surprises that have come out of nowhere, and long-anticipated games that have managed to meet and exceed our expectations when we’ve finally got our hands on them.
This year, for the DDNet awards, we have 16 different categories to recognise, and as we always do. Today it’s the final category. The big one! The overall game of the year! We take the winners from all the other categories and decide which of those games had the greatest impact on us, across all categories. The games that are not just hugely entertaining, but thought-provoking and memorable. The games that we’ll still be raving about for years to come. Each of these four winners (there was a tie for bronze), is something so special that no one should miss out on it.

And with that we are done for the awards of 2020! Let us know your own picks for the year – which has been a pretty good one for games, all told – and thanks for reading along with u!
