Here are the possible 2020 ‘Game of the Year’ nominees


Every developer’s goal is to get their game to nab the ‘Game of the Year’ award by the end of the year. This year is rather special as there are already a lot of great candidates for the award.

There are many factors that will determine whether or not a title is deserving of Game of the Year award. It’s impossible to guess which one it will be, but we know which titles are worthy of becoming a candidate.

‘The Last of Us 2’

The highly anticipated sequel to The Last of Us launched to critical acclaim. It is currently one of the best-reviewed games of 2020 so far, and it continues to wow critics. However, the game isn’t without its flaws.

Despite the great reception by media outlets, the game has been touted as a disgrace by some fans. The Last of Us 2 is still a great game despite its highly controversial story, so there is a good chance that it can win this year’s biggest gaming award.

‘Final Fantasy 7 Remake’

It is a game long in the making, and when Square Enix decided they want to deliver what fans want, they made sure it is a great title. Final Fantasy 7 Remake is a potential Game of the Year simply because it’s able to capture the nostalgia that fans had with the first game. At the same time, the game brought in new elements that would satisfy even the newcomers.

From an amazing combat system to a few new twists and turns in the story, Final Fantasy 7 Remake is easily one of the best games this year.

‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’

Even if it doesn’t win the award, Animal Crossing: New Horizons will still be known as the quarantine game. It launched at a perfect time. When a majority of the world’s population was stuck at home due to the pandemic, the game gave gamers and even non-gamers, a means to explore a lighthearted world.

To this date, it is one of the most played titles currently. With consistent updates from Nintendo, we can expect this game to stay for a long time.

These are just some of this year’s Game of the Year candidates. There are still great games to come, such as Ghost of Tsushima, Cyberpunk 2077, and Marvel’s Avengers. This means there may be more great candidates for the biggest award in gaming.
