Insta-Forum: Which Games Are You Most Excited For In 2020?
With 2020 in full swing, we're taking a look ahead at the upcoming releases of the year. What are your most anticipated games of 2020?
There’s no denying that 2019 was a great year for video games. In fact, we spent the better part of the end of last year arguing what our favorites were, with Judgment coming out on top as our Game of the Year. However, that would go without recognizing the other incredible games that came out in the last year like Outer Wilds, The Outer Worlds, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Control, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Metro Exodus, Devil May Cry 5, and so many others in between from AAA to indie games.
However, now that we’re over a full month into 2020, it’s time to start looking ahead, and so far 2020 seems like it might just be one of the best years in gaming yet. While obviously towards the end of the year we’ll be able to look forward to the release of the next-generation consoles with the PS5 and Xbox Series X, there is still a score of anticipated games scheduled to arrive this year to bring this generation to a close.
Here are just a few of the major games that are slated to release this coming year (or expected to arrive sometime this year):
- Ori and the Will of the Wisps
- Nioh 2
- Animal Crossing: New Horizons
- DOOM Eternal
- Bleeding Edge
- Persona 5 Royal
- Half-Life: Alyx
- Resident Evil 3
- Final Fantasy VII Remake
- Gears Tactics
- Minecraft Dungeons
- Wasteland 3
- The Last of Us Part II
- Marvel’s Avengers
- Cyberpunk 2077
- Dying Light 2
- No More Heroes 3
- Ghost of Tsushima
- Gods & Monsters
- Watch Dogs: Legion
- Rainbow Six Quarantine
- Halo Infinite
The list goes on and on, and surely there are a ton of games for this year that haven’t been announced yet. Combined with the upcoming release of the next-generation consoles, 2020 already looks stacked with a ton of incredible games on the horizon, especially in the first few months of the year alone. Spring 2020 is already going to be a busy one here at DualShockers with some of the most high-profile releases of the year coming, so keep an eye out once we start playing through games like DOOM Eternal, Animal Crossing, Resident Evil 3, and Final Fantasy VII Remake.
Of course, that leads us to asking the DualShockers community this question: which games are you most looking forward to in 2020? How do you think this year will stack up in terms of gaming releases compared to 2019? What gaming events, moments, conventions, or otherwise are you excited about in 2020. Let us know all of your most anticipated games and hopes/dreams for 2020 in the comments below.
According to the Readers’ Choice poll in our 2019 Game of the Year Awards, Final Fantasy VII Remake came out on top as the community’s most anticipated game, while Cyberpunk 2077 came out on top as the staff’s choice. Both are clearly worthy, and you’ll get to hear about those and more games from the DualShockers staff later this week.
For the rest of this week, we’ll be running editorials from the staff about the game that they are most looking forward to 2020, and hopefully a few of your favorites will pop up. Stay tuned for those features throughout the rest of this week.
