Metacritic Reveals it’s Highest Rated Games of 2020

Metacritic is perhaps one of the best websites to go to if you want to know if a video game is, generally speaking, any good or not. Combining both critic and fan reviews, if a game has a high rating there, you probably know it’s going to at least be decent. – With 2020 having come to a close, however, Metacritic has compiled a list of the top games released for practically every platform over the year!

Let us, therefore, take a quick look and see if there’s something we agree, disagree with, or perhaps should put on our gaming shopping list! – Oh, and just to clarify, a game being on the list (and this is specifically for older consoles) doesn’t necessarily mean it came out this year.

Metacritic – What Do You Think?

Admittedly, Metacritic does have its flaws with the rating system and particularly so when you have professional review waxing lyrical over somethings fans are no where near enthusiastic about, but what do you think? – Are there any games you think are missed from the top 10 here? – Let us know in the comments!

Oh, and you can check out the full list (which ranks the top 50 games for each platform) via the Metacritic website here!
