Hades: Hell is Kind


Hades is my game of the year for 2020. Honestly, I like it more than any game that came out since 2015's The Witcher 3, and even then I think there's a good argument to say I like Hades more. And I'll be very surprised if anything comes out in 2021 that I like more than Hades. I love this game, and I'll love it for a long, long time because not only was it entertaining and inspiring, it helped me realize something about myself that feels like a key to my whole personality--something that's been part of me for years but I've never been able to explain until now. Until Hades.

The Games That Mattered To Me in 2020

2020 was a terrible year for a lot of people. For me, it was fine, but it was hard to watch how bad it was for so many other people, and it was especially hard to constantly argue about COVID, politics, racial justice in America, and the other big topics that made 2020, 2020. 

But while everything else fell apart, videogames showed up this year in a big way. 2020 was a great year for games. And of all the great games that came out this year, seven in particular added a lot to my life. Let me tell you just a little bit about each one here, and I'll do a deep dive on my personal game of the year, Hades, in another post.
