Now that we are a quarter of a way through 2021 I thought it would be a good time to talk about some of the games that I played in 2020. 2020 was a weird year for games, in a way it was the year that games really came into their own as an escape and a social tool during the lockdowns and rough spots during the covid pandemic. It was also the year that my partner started playing games of her own accord and we joined a video game reading group with some cool people in our area. Suddenly interesting conversations about games seemed to be going on all the time and I started making notes on games I played again.
I was going to do a round-up of all the games together but I don’t want it to be like a buyer’s guide or game-of-the-year list and it turned out I have a lot to say about some of these so I’m going to split them up into a series of long form posts. Honestly, a lot of these games didn’t even come out in 2020, really they’re just the things that I played and talked about with people at the time.
brb with the real shit.
