    Continuing on Ivory_Soul's work, even if no one is around to contribute to it.

    Protips:
    1. When posting for the first time, just make a post including your initial list and a game count.
    2. Completion does not mean that you have to do X, Y, and Z for it to be completed. Completion is whatever you consider finished, whether that is just beating the game, getting every achievement, or unlocking every single item.
    3. Games released via digital distribution count too!
    4. If you beat a game that you've beat in the past, it still counts! The list is for games completed in 2020, regardless of previous completion.
    5. Some "games" are actually compilations, such as Sonic Mega Collection and The Orange Box. Since there are multiple games, please list each of them separately.
    6. If the game is multiplayer only, it's hard to actually complete it. If you want something like Team Fortress 2 to count, make sure it's some goal like "got all achievements" or "raised skill rank to 50" and note it in your list.
    7. Downloadable content can count, provided it's a full expansion on the level of The Elder Scrolls IV: The Shivering Isles. If the DLC merely additional missions that are integrated into the regular game, such as the "Bring Down the Sky" DLC for Mass Effect, then it doesn't count as a separate game.
    8. Cut off for list submission will be December 31 at midnight.

    Though started in 2019, I finished Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order in 2020. I really enjoyed the game, though I think it needed a bit more polish to be a true classic. I think it seems better than it really is due to the lack of good Star Wars games as of late. But in any case, the overall gameplay was pretty good, graphics were decent, and other than some poor collision detection (especially for some ledge grabs, or areas of falling off the map), I didn't come across much to complain about.

    I began on 2019 too and I still not finished it, can't understand why it's taking me too long.

    I also enjoyed playing Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Since I am a big fan of Star Wars, I forgive them some gameplay glitches.

    PC:

    - The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt (main campaign) - 9.5 / 10

    I told myself that I was going to stop coming to GameRevolution, because it's become an empty husk of its former self, and the forums are nearly dead... but my good friend COMaestro is still here and somewhat active. So COMaestro, this one is for you.

    A mate of mine bought me The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt: Game of the Year Edition for PC for my birthday, which I've been playing the absolute crap out of. I forgot how big and expansive the Continent is. I originally played and adored The Witcher III on PS4 in 2015 and 2016, so it's pretty awesome to play it on PC.

    On PC, I'm playing it on max/epic settings, running the game at 1080p resolution and receiving an average 60 FPS. Despite playing on PC, I am using my PS4 controller, rather than a keyboard and mouse. If anyone's interested, here are the specs of my new PC, which I built last year:

    Case: Fractual Design Core 2300 Mid Tower Case, Black;
    Graphics card: XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB;
    Power supply: Thermaltake Toughpower Grand Sync RGB Gold 650W Power Supply;
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB ( 2 x 8GB ) DDR4;
    Motherboard: MSI B450M Mortar Motherboard;
    Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 with Wraith Stealth;
    SSD: Intel 660p Series M.2 NVMe SSD 512GB;
    Operating system: Microsoft Windows 10 Home 64 bit;
    Additional Storage: 3TB Seagate SATA HDD.

    Some of the cinematic animations haven't exactly aged that well but for the most part, the graphics, especially the environments, are absolutely amazing. I love the game's soundtrack, it so perfectly compliments the overall setting. The story is still incredibly memorable to me and I love the characters. I especially love how even the side quests are filled with deep, rich stories that actually make us care about the people involved.

    As a fan of Dark Souls style combat, I enjoy The Witcher III's combat system and have learned a lot more about the system as a whole. In my PS4 run, I played the game like a typical RPG, ignoring potions, decoctions, oils and levelling up skills somewhat randomly. Now, I know exactly how potions, decotions, oils and certain skills work. I've levelled up my Geralt (along with wearing Mastercrafted Feline gear) to focus on fast fighting, invulnerable dodges and critical hits. He's a bit of a wrecking machine.

    I've also really gotten into Gwent. It's such an unbalanced game and at times I think the A.I. can be a bit unfair, but it's a lot of fun and I really enjoy building a new deck and smashing NPCs with it, ha ha.

    The game does have some small gripes, which are unfortunately an expected trope in most open world games, such as being accidentally caught on tiny bits of the environment in combat.

    The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt was my favourite game of 2015, and it's been an awesome way to start 2020 while I wait for upcoming games on my wish list. Irrelevant to this post, here's what I'm looking forward to in 2020:

    - Final Fantasy VII Remake (PS4);
    - The Last of Us: Part II (PS4);
    - Cyberpunk 2077 (PC);
    - Resident Evil 3 (PC or PS4 - not sure yet).

    A few other games have peaked my interest as well,

    - Dying Light 2
    - Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines 2
    - DOOM Eternal;
    - Marvel's Avengers;
    - Nioh 2;
    - Ghost of Tsushima,
    - Trials of Mana (Secret of Mana 3 remake).

    2020 is going to be big in gaming!

    PC:

    - The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt (main campaign) - 9.5 / 10
    - The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt: Hearts of Stone - 9 / 10

    I finished the excellent DLC campaign, Hearts of Stone, for the Witcher III: Wild Hunt.

    Hearts of Stone adds some stuff, but it's mostly more lore and story set in the regions of Novigrad and Velen. Hearts of Stone does offer a fantastic story, more side quests, additional items and a few new mechanics. All up, it'll probably take a typical player somewhere between 8 to 12 hours to complete.

    If you have The Witcher III, Hearts of Stone is highly recommended. Now onto Blood and Wine!

    PC:

    - The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt (main campaign) - 9.5 / 10
    - The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt: Hearts of Stone - 9 / 10
    - Final Fantasy XV: Episode Gladiolus - 6.5 / 10

    I'm currently playing Final Fantasy XV: Windows/Royal Edition for PC, as it was available on the X-Box Game Pass for PC, which I'm paying about $4.95 AUD a month for. As I had finished chapter 8 of the game's main campaign, I decided to give the first DLC pack, Episode Gladiolus a go.

    It was... okay.

    It was quite short, taking me 45 minutes to complete. The story itself is pretty straight forward. Gladiolus has temporarily left Noctis and the others from the main campaign because after getting his arse handed to him at some stage in the main story, Gladiolus has undertaken some dangerous mission of self-discovery to prove that he's worthy to be the King's Shield. That's pretty much it.

    The game play takes some of the combat system of FFXV but makes it faster and very much like Devil May Cry. Gladiolus can block attacks with his shield and he can parry to leave enemies vulnerable for powerful counter attacks. Every time Gladiolus blocks or parries attacks, he builds a rage meter, which increase his damage. Some attacks from enemies (particularly bosses) are unblockable, the visual queue being when the enemy glows red.

    Gladiolus can also build his technique meter by attacking. This allows him to use his moves from the main campaign, albeit modified in terms of animation and purpose.

    You'll essentially cruise from point A to point B in a linear, tight corridor manner like Final Fantasy XIII as you defeat groups of enemies in a Devil May Cry fashion. You'll wind up finishing in about 45 - 60 minutes. At the end of it though, you do unlock some abilities for Gladiolus to use in the main game, as well as a very powerful sword.

    The story is basic, there's no exploration and it's just walking from one room to the other, fighting groups of enemies until you inevitably face the boss. Some people might really like that and 10 years ago, as a former avid fan of Devil May Cry, I would have loved it, but it just wasn't that great for me. It's not overly hard either, as the game is quite generous giving you supplies to keep your episode's protagonist alive.

    It also didn't run very well on my PC. I think either my PC isn't good enough to run FFXV at max settings, 1080p and achieve 60 FPS but... I'm fairly certain FFXV isn't well optimised for PC, as I can run numerous other games at max settings, 1080p resolution and achieve 60 FPS easily (games like Borderlands 3, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt etc.)

    Episode Gladiolus is worth checking out if you happen to have the Windows/Royal edition for PC, or the Royal Edition for console, but as a stand alone DLC pack? It's probably not worth purchasing.

    PC:

    - The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt (main campaign) - 9.5 / 10
    - The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt: Hearts of Stone - 9 / 10
    - Final Fantasy XV: Episode Gladiolus - 6.5 / 10
    - Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ignis - 8.5 / 10
    - Final Fantasy XV: Episode Prompto - 7.5 / 10

    I finished the remaining DLC episodes for Final Fantasy XV, being Episode Ignis and Episode Prompto.

    In terms of game play and setting, I very much preferred Episode Ignis. It was a lot of fun and it felt quite "epic". Episode Prompto was okay, it had a good story (both episodes have good stories) but the game play just felt... lacking, especially the final boss fight of the episode. Still, it was definitely much more enjoyable than Episode Gladiolus.

    Still playing the main campaign of the game, so I'll be getting back to it!

    - Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ignis - 8.5 / 10
    - Final Fantasy XV: Episode Prompto - 7.5 / 10
    - Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition for Windows - 9 / 10

    I just finished Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition for Windows.

    The Royal Edition is hands down so much better than the original game and honestly, is what the original game should have been. The Royal Edition features so much more content as well as more story, making the overall narrative easier to understand and quite frankly, so much more enjoyable. There's also new areas to explore and new quests to do. The Royal Edition also features all DLC as well, which is a nice feature, especially Episode Ignis. All up, it took me just over 60 hours to finish the main story of FFXV.

    Running on PC, keyboard and mouse controls suck for this game, and unfortunately X-Box Game Pass for PC sometimes doesn't properly support a PS4 controller, which FFXV does not, but luckily I was able to use a third party program to make my game think I was using an X-Box One controller.

    FFXV is highly demanding on PC. I have 16GB of DDR4 RAM, an AMD Ryzen 5 3600 (with Wraith Stealth) processor and an XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB graphics card, running at 1080p. This game still looks amazing and looks even better on a good PC, but my game didn't always run at 60 FPS and there were some segments of the game that had quite the frame rate drops. For the most part, it looked and ran better than it did when I first played FFXV on PS4 back in 2016.

    The combat can be a bit finicky at times, especially when there's multiple enemies on screen at once or/and you're in a narrow corridor, like sewers or a dungeon. This didn't happen often but when it did, it kind of sucked.

    Surprisingly, I did not experience -any- bugs in my play through, despite the game being essentially an open world experience.

    If you have X-Box Game Pass for PC and you're looking for a new RPG to play, I'd like to recommend Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition for Windows.

    I played Horizon Zero Dawn, This game is incredibly beautiful, incredibly well scripted, it is simply incredible and yet there are few games that have seduced me so much.

    Hot damn. It's been a long while and I have played some games, recently. Here's my updated scoop:

    PC:

    - The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt (main campaign) - 9.5 / 10
    - The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt: Hearts of Stone - 9 / 10
    - Final Fantasy XV: Episode Gladiolus - 6.5 / 10
    - Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ignis - 8.5 / 10
    - Final Fantasy XV: Episode Prompto - 7.5 / 10
    - Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition for Windows - 9 / 10
    - Superhot VR - 8.5 / 10

    PS4:

    - DOOM: Eternal - 7 / 10
    - Resident Evil 3 Remake - 8 / 10
    - Final Fantasy VII Remake - 8.5 / 10
    - Trials of Mana (Secret of Mana 2 Remake) - 7 / 10
    - The Last of Us: Part II - 8.5 / 10


    I've played a bunch of games over the past few months, especially considering our dear friend COVID-19 decided to throw a spanner into the works of society. I've had a lot more free time lately.

    So... the above bold games are what I've played lately in the last three to four months. I'm not quite sure how to feel. All the games I played are "good" games, but none of them blew me away as a Game of the Year experience. Here's a quick recap of all the above games.

    Superhot VR: I recently got an Oculus Quest 64GB. I wouldn't have gotten one, but due to the ability to connect to a PC via Oculus Link, I was sold. Superhot VR is a lot of fun, but it can get a bit repetitive and unfortunately, it's quite short.

    DOOM: Eternal: Unpopular opinion, but DOOM: Eternal is overrated. The music isn't as good as the previous DOOM and the gameplay is super repetitive. It does look pretty, though.

    Resident Evil 3 Remake: A beautiful looking game that has similar game play to the Resident Evil 2 remake, albeit with faithful callbacks to the original RE3, including the ability to dodge, explosive barrels etc. Unfortunately, the game is quite short, there is little to no replay value and Resident Evil: Resistance is kind of a disappointing mess.

    Final Fantasy VII Remake: An absolutely gorgeous game with a beautiful soundtrack. The action-orientated combat is quite fun but in a typical Square-Enix fashion, the story gets overly complex and confusing. On top of that, the 40 hour journey is incredibly linear, becoming a very point A to point B experience, with little to explore. The game has been rightfully criticised to feature a lot of "padding" as the entire adventure is based in Midgar, when the original's Midgar component was only the first few hours of the game. In a typical J-RPG manner, the game also has a lot of cheesy, anime-style dialog.

    Trials of Mana (Secret of Mana 2 Remake): A lengthy game that does a great job of capturing the magic of the original game, and is so much better than the train wreck of the 2018 Secret of Mana remake. The combat is simple and feels like an easier version of the Final Fantasy VII Remake. The graphics are bright and colourful, not super detailed but it has a good art direction. The story however has not aged well and the game's writing is filled with cheesy, anime-inspired dialog. While the game allows for multiple characters to choose from, I did not at all feel inclined to play again.

    The Last of Us: Part II: The Last of Us: Part II is evidently the best looking game of 2020 so far, with incredibly realistic graphics and a wonderful art direction. The environments are bigger, with more to explore and alternative paths to take. The stealth is amazing and the combat, particularly the melee combat, has greatly improved over its 2013 predecessor. I think it can also be appreciated as to how accessible the game is to a wide variety of players. The story however isn't as strong as the first game and while it does get better over time, it starts off very slow. The game is a lot longer than the first one (about 20 - 30 hours), I felt the game was a bit too long, as it was becoming quite repetitive for me. It was also disappointing to see a lack of multiplayer.

    - Half-Life: Alyx - 9.5 / 10

    PS4:

    - DOOM: Eternal - 7 / 10
    - Resident Evil 3 Remake - 8 / 10
    - Final Fantasy VII Remake - 8.5 / 10
    - Trials of Mana (Secret of Mana 2 Remake) - 7 / 10
    - The Last of Us: Part II - 8.5 / 10

    I stumbled back here onto the forum. Whoever is still here, I wish you nothing but good health, safety and happiness during these tense and challenging times.

    I played and finished Half-Life: Alyx, using my Oculus Quest and connecting to my PC via Oculus Link.

    For my short version, Half-Life: Alyx is an amazing experience and my top game for 2020 so far.

    For the longer version:

    Half-Life: Alyx has an incredibly great and intuitive control scheme. It's immersive and offers a wide variety of options for accessibility and comfort to the player.

    The game looks fantastic. I have a Radeon XFX 5700 XT 8GB graphics card and for the most part, I could play Half-Life: Alyx on High (not Ultra) settings. However, toward the final chapter of the game, I found that I did unfortunately experience some stutters, resulting in me having to turn the game down to Medium in order to play smoothly.

    The combat is fair and challenging. While the enemy A.I. isn't fantastic, it's designed in a way that won't be too catastrophic to the player, especially considering that this is a VR title, after all. The puzzles are quite clever and are a real brain-teaser.

    Weapon variety is somewhat limited, as Alyx only acquires three weapons throughout the entire game. All weapons are upgradeable and for the most part, the upgrades are very beneficial. There is no melee combat, which is probably a smart decision on the developer's part.

    The game's story is quite good. It's easy and coherent, with wonderful vocal performances from Alyx and Russel, who the pair speak constantly to each other via radio throughout the game. In total, you'll probably get about 14 - 16 hours of game play (I finished in 14) so for a VR title, it's an impressive length.

    The game is unfortunately quite linear, very A to B, with little to explore and no alternative paths. Aside from playing the game on a harder difficulty, there doesn't seem to be much replay value either and there is nothing to unlock other than trophy achievements.

    I'm kind of hoping that Cyberpunk 2077 is my Game of the Year but for now, Half-Life: Alyx sits on the throne. Well done, Valve. I've finally been blown away by a game in 2020.
