The best games of 2020 and most wanted upcoming games

Here we have brought the best games of 2020 and most wanted upcoming games list for you. 2020 promises to be a year of great change and, with the new generation around the corner with Xbox Series X and PS5, it seems normal that we have to hold on to a few releases that the industry has been delaying for months. But beware, that doesn’t mean that a good handful of gems for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch are not on the way .

Here we show you the best games of 2020, separating those that have already come out from those that are on the horizon. A list that we will be expanding and modifying throughout the year to incorporate new games, talk about those that have already arrived and expand information and release dates of those that are still in the oven. Put away the wallets.

The best games so far

‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’

A desert island, a handful of anthropomorphic friends and the always difficult task of paying a mortgage come together in ‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ , the new installment in the relaxing and addictive saga of Nintendo.

  • Platforms: PC and Xbox One
  • Price: 19.99 euros

The mythical toads of ‘Battletoads‘ have returned through the front door. Action, platforms, shooter and mini-games come together in a tribute to the games of the 90s with a hilarious story that inevitably reminds us of the cartoon marathons of our childhood.

‘Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle’

Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle
  • Platforms: PS4 and Xbox One
  • Price: 39.70 euros

Two of the most iconic action games of the past generation have returned with renewed strength after passing through PC. ‘Bayonetta’ and ‘Vanquish’ are surely PlatinumGames’ two most awarded masterpieces. Games in which combos, excessive action and outbursts are the order of the day.

‘Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions’

Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions
  • Platforms: PS4, Switch and PC
  • Price: 55.91 euros

Oliver and Benji return to our lives with ‘Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions’ , a football arcade that collects the madness and fantasy of their matches so that we spend three days moving from one goal to another. Sports arcades are not a genre in the heyday, so receiving something like this and doing it accompanied by one of our childhood series is a very pleasant surprise.

‘Crusader Kings III’

Crusader Kings III
  • Platforms: PC
  • Price: 44.95 euros

Paradox Interactive returns to the fray with the intention of ending our social life with ‘Crusader Kings III’ . Another generous dose of strategy, role and skirt messes in which to unleash our creativity when it comes to keeping our – hopefully – long dynasty under control.

  • Price: 56.99 euros

Turned into a gift for fans, ‘Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot’ promises us a nostalgic journey in which, halfway between the RPG and combat, we will experience the key moments in the history of Son Goku in Dragon Ball Z. that is not a perfect game, but knows how to touch the potato like no other.

‘Final Fantasy VII Remake’

Final Fantasy VII Remake
  • Platforms: PS4 (exclusive until April 2021)
  • Price: 58.49 euros

We come to ‘Final Fantasy VII: Remake’ , which has turned out to be one of the great releases of the year. One that still raises doubts for having turned the original game into a cake of which this edition is the first serving, but one that we have gobbled up two cheeks. The PSX classic returns here with revamped graphics, expanded story, and the ability to fight in turns or with an updated combat system.

‘Ghost of Tsushima’

Ghost of Tsushima
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Price: 61.90 euros

‘Ghost of Tsushima’ is the perfect example of that category of games that arrive making as little noise as possible and you don’t see their potential coming even with the best binoculars. Action, stealth and open world meet at the height of the ‘Assassin’s Creed’ formula, this time signed by Sony instead of Ubisoft.

‘Half-Life: Alyx’

Half-Life: Alyx
  • Platforms: PC
  • Price: 49.99 euros

‘Half-Life: Alyx’ is not the third installment of ‘Half-Life’ , but in the absence of something better, no one can deny that the new from Valve has been transcendental for the promises of virtual reality. In action games, he has taken technology to a new level and our desire to play has been more than satisfied.

‘Kentucky Route Zero’

Kentucky Route Zero
  • Platforms: PS4, Switch, Xbox and PC
  • Price: 22.99 euros

‘Kentucky Route Zero’ is not a game for all audiences. It is slow, brainy and has more reading than constant interaction. Despite this, its very long development has come to fruition and, with it, one of the most surprising narrative adventures that you can throw in your face. A road trip where folklore and paranormal events go hand in hand.

‘Journey to the Savage Planet’

Journey to the Savage Planet
  • Platforms: PS4, Xbox One and PC
  • Price: 26.99 euros

Due to the lack of similar proposals rather than to spin everything that is proposed to perfection, ‘Journey to the Savage Planet’ is one of those games that you don’t mind recommending to those looking for a hobby in which to completely disconnect. Exploration and platform meet in a game that the only thing that can be held against is not having had more ambition.

‘Microsoft Flight Simulator’

Microsoft Flight Simulator
  • Platforms: PC
  • Price: 69.99 euros

Since the publication of its first video, it has become one of the most anticipated games, and not only because simulation is fashionable , but also because it has proven to be one of the grossest proposals on a graphic level. ‘Microsoft Flight Simulator’ and its photorealistic planet have proven to be the perfect excuse to renew our PC or jump to the new generation of consoles.

‘Minecraft Dungeons’

Minecraft Dungeons
  • Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC
  • Price: 19.99 euros

Microsoft is not willing to let one of its star franchises die, but far from limiting itself to expanding the original game it has also wanted to open new paths for it.

‘Marvel’s Avengers’

Marvel’s Avengers
  • Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC and Stadia
  • Price: 59.99 euros

‘Marvel’s Avengers’ has been one of the games that we have looked forward to most in recent years, but those who have already been able to get their hands on it have invited not to throw too many bells on the fly.

‘Nioh 2’

A superb sequel both playable and visual that sends you straight to the best games of the year.

‘Paper Mario: The Origami King’

  • Platforms: Switch
  • Price: 49.90 euros

It was another game that had all the numbers to leave us trembling and, to no one’s surprise, the expected return of one of the most acclaimed sagas in the video game world fulfilled its promise. ‘The Last of Us Part II’ brings us back the story of Joel and Ellie with a Naughty Dog that had not forced us to pick the jaw off the ground for a long time.

Empire of Sin
  • Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC
  • Release Date: Fall

From the hand of Brenda and John Romero comes this strategy game inspired by ‘Xcom’ with the Chicago mafia of the 20s as the protagonist. Of ‘Empire of Sin’ we like its creators, we love the time and we love the strategic proposal, so now it only remains for the game to live up to expectations.

‘Marvel’s Spider-man: Miles Morales’
Marvel’s Spider-man: Miles Morales
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release date: late 2020

‘Marvel’s Spider-man: Miles Morales’ is the great asset of PS5 for the arrival of the next generation Sony console in stores and, although it is actually a kind of expansion of what was seen in ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ that it will keep the same scenario, the truth is that it will have a completely new story. Putting on our tights again and enjoying its visual enhancements are more than enough reasons to feel like it.


  • Platforms: PS4, Xbox One and PC
  • Release date: late 2020

The creators of ‘Bulletstorm’ are preparing for the end of the year a proposal completely different from anything we have seen of them so far. An action game with coverage and a background to the ‘Destiny’ that promises hours and hours of looting and missions completed in cooperative. ‘Outriders’ has a difficult time standing out among everything that comes with the new generation, but all is not lost.

‘Little Nightmares II’

Little Nightmares II
  • Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC
  • Release date: to be determined

The first turned out to be a very pleasant surprise that knew how to play with terror and tension as few have managed lately. ‘Little Nightmares II’ goes the same way with another serving of Burtonian aesthetics in which stealth, platforms and puzzles will keep us glued to the screen for hours.

‘No More Heroes III’

No More Heroes III
  • Platforms: Switch
  • Release date: to be determined

Goichi Suda brings us back to the character of Travis Touchdown with another of those Japanese in which bravado, excess and blows go hand in hand like good brothers.

‘Overwatch 2’

Overwatch 2
  • Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC
  • Release date: to be determined

It is not a new game, but it is a lot like it. ‘Overwatch 2’ plans to maintain the same multiplayer from the first installment and will add the players of that one to this sequel, but beyond that its main asset is to deliver that promised story mode that will delve into the heroes of the game based on cooperative missions. One of those options that we do not know very well what to expect but that will surely be talked about.

‘Twin Mirror’

Twin Mirror
  • Platforms: PS4, Xbox One and PC
  • Release date: to be determined

Dontnod has managed to find his place in narrative adventures so as not to fall into the mistakes of Telltale Games and, after the success of ‘Life is Strange’ , ‘Twin Mirror’ promises to give a twist to the formula in which to pursue new stories and mechanics .

‘Yakuza: Like a Dragon’

Yakuza: Like a Dragon
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release date: to be determined

We close with what promises to be the most drastic change that we see in a current saga. The Japanese mafia changes the smacks of a ” me against the neighborhood ” for the turn-based strategy in ‘Yakuza: Like a Dragon’ and we, how could it be otherwise, we are willing to swallow with the change if all the crazy things that promises they end up being as fun as it sounds.
