2020 may have been quite a shit year in many ways, but at least even during the rampant pandemic, we could rely on the fact that we always had enough good games to play. There were some real gaming highlights to marvel at, especially on Playstation 4 and 5. We therefore voted in the editorial office on the best Playstation games of 2020 and present you our top 10 in this video.

Nioh 2 is a real bastard! Areas are repetitive, you are forced to grind to have a chance and some bosses are downright unfair. And yet we have taken this bastard to our hearts, because the action role-playing game by Team Ninja also offers a beautifully implemented samurai fantasy setting, an exciting story and always challenging but fun main and side quests. In addition, the well-functioning combat system and the hunt for new, better weapons and armor are absolutely motivating. We cursed a lot while playing through Nioh 2, but afterwards we were happy to have let ourselves into this experience. Therefore, the title is also our 10th Playstation Game of the Year.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake

  • Release: March 2nd, 2020

Final Fantasy 7 is one of the great classics in video game history and the expectations for the first part of the remake were accordingly high. Fortunately, the fans were not disappointed either, because the new edition of the role-playing game convinces with pretty graphics, a great flow of the game, a lot of atmosphere and a successful combat system that looks much more sophisticated than that in Final Fantasy 15. Although the first part of the remake only covers the section in Midgar includes, there is a lot to do. If you only needed about five hours for this part in the original, you are busy here for about 40 hours in the remake. The grandiose story about the protagonist Cloud Strife, his opponent Sephiroth and the unscrupulous Shinra company, however, remained untouched and is just as thrilling today as it was back in 1997. We very much hope that we will soon hear something about the next part of the remake, because we can't wait to dive into this super role-playing game again.

Sackboy: A Big Adventure

  • Release: November 12th
  • Platforms: PS4, PS5
  • Developer: Sumo Digital
  • Rating: 9/10

Sackboy: A Big Adventure dispenses with the editor of a Little Big Planet, but is much more jumping game fun than the three parts of the previous series. The big adventure of the little bag boy steals a few elements from Super Mario 3D World and Rayman Legends and mixes them with the usual bag boy charm as well as many of his own creative ideas. The start of A Big Adventure is still a bit generic, but after a short time you dive into the beautifully designed world of the little blind face. The background music is fantastic, thanks to the many different gadgets and the variedly designed levels you never get bored and you meet all sorts of quirky characters in the course of the adventure. It is also particularly great that you can play all normal levels in couch co-op with up to three friends and there are even special co-op levels that shine with clever level design. Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a real source of joy and therefore deservedly in the top 10 of our favorite Playstation games of the year.

Resident Evil 3 Remake

  • Release: April 3, 2020
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One
  • Developer: Capcom
  • Rating: 8/10

The remake of Resident Evil 3 was pretty short and some die-hard fans of the original didn't really agree with a few changes, but that doesn't change the fact that Nemesis caused wonderfully nerve-racking terror for us. When the bioweapon developed by Umbrella chases the protagonist Jill Valentine, your heart really beats to your neck, because the staging of the new edition is absolutely outstanding. In general, Resident Evil 3 is, despite its greater focus on action, a wonderfully atmospheric adventure that grabs you from the first second and only lets you go at the end of the credits. The multiplayer mode Resident Evil: Resistance, which is also included, is quite nice at best, but a Resi has to convince with his campaign and the remake of Part 3 definitely does.

Persona 5 Royal

  • Release: March 31, 2020
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Developer: Atlus, P Studio
  • Rating: 9/10

As if we hadn't spent too much time in Persona 5 three years ago, this year Persona 5 Royal was also released, a greatly expanded version of the grandiose role-playing game. Side quests have been detoxified, the fights are more entertaining and on top of that there is a new palace and an additional third semester, which increases the playing time of the title by another 25 hours. It is also particularly nice that all of the texts have now finally been translated into German. After all, the original Persona-5 could only be enjoyed with a good knowledge of English or Japanese. In any case, these innovations have ensured that we are once again immersed in the great gameplay and the wonderfully absurd story of a mysterious parallel world in which suppressed character traits manifest themselves. So we've now spent well over 200 hours in Persona 5 and don't regret a single second of it.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon

  • Release: November 10, 2020
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S
  • Developer: Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio
  • Rating: 9/10

Just like its predecessors, Yakuza: Like a Dragon also succeeds with flying colors in mixing a serious socially critical main story with side missions that are completely banana. For example, we fight against exhibitionists or giant vacuum cleaner robots or watch boring films in the cinema, but have to use a mini-game to prevent falling asleep. Nevertheless, Like a Dragon is a reinvention of the traditional, but niche series, because this time we are not actively knocking down bad boys, but in a turn-based combat system, because part 7 is a real role-playing game in which we are on the road with a party whose members we different Assign professions. In addition, we are now controlling the new character Ichiban Kasuga, who is a little more extroverted than Kazuma Kiryu and whom we have taken right into our hearts. Like a Dragon is wonderfully absurd RPG fun.

Demon's Souls

  • Release: November 12, 2020
  • Platforms: PS5
  • Developer: Bluepoint Games / From Software
  • Rating: 9/10

Nowhere does it die as beautifully as in the remake of Demon's Souls, which we can appreciate with 4th place in this top list. The action role-playing game by From software originally appeared for the PS3 and was already convincing with its gloomy mood, demanding gameplay and numerous ingeniously mean bosses who tear your butt off if you are not careful or are not familiar with the game mechanics . Fortunately, nothing has changed in 2020, because Bluepoint Games dispensed with playful adjustments or even modern comfort functions in the new edition. Instead you get exactly the same, still great game, but with beautiful next-gen graphics. The pretty lighting effects alone are reason enough to add the remake of Demon's Souls to this list.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales

  • Release: November 12, 2020
  • Platforms: PS4, PS5
  • Developer: Insomniac Games
  • Rating: 9/10

Spider-Man: Miles Morales may have only just been released, but the short time since its release was enough to make us rank 3 of the best Playstation games of the year. The coming-of-age story of Jung-Spidey is a lot shorter than the great adventure of Peter Parker in 2018, but still a fantastic superhero game. As with the last Spider-Man, Insomniac Games succeeds in portraying both the private person under the mask, including worries and fears, as well as the hero who has to surpass himself in an excellent and understandable way. In addition, the gameplay has been improved again since the last part, which is mainly due to Miles' new skills. Because he can make himself invisible for a short time and has bioelectrical powers, there are a number of ways to turn off villains. Great Marvel fun!

The Last of Us: Part 2

  • Release: June 19, 2020
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Developer: Naughty Dog
  • Rating: 10/10

Not only part 2, but also place 2! The successor to The Last of Us received a series of top ratings and prizes, but also caused displeasure among a loud minority with some story decisions. But no matter how you feel about Part 2, if unfounded hatred has not completely clouded your brain, you have to admit that there is probably no other video game that grabs you emotionally, carries you away and plunges you right into human abysses like the top-staged work by Naughty Dog. What starts out as a simple revenge story becomes so much more as the game progresses. The ingeniously written action adventure requires trust in the narrative as well as empathy and, with its nerve-wracking brutality, is certainly not for everyone. An absolutely exceptional title that will be talked about for years to come.

Ghost of Tsushima

  • Release: July 17th, 2020
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Developer: Sucker Punch Productions
  • Rating: 9/10

A little surprise: Ghost of Tsushima narrowly prevailed in our internal editorial vote as the best Playstation game of the year before The Last of Us: Part 2. That is quite understandable, because the open-world action-adventure around the protagonist Jin Kasai also offers a very exciting and dark story about morality, honor and inner conflicts, but is not as emotionally exhausting and engaging as Ellie's vengeance campaign. In addition, Ghost of Tsushima is a high-quality and well-rounded product in all respects. The game world is beautiful and varied and ensures that you sink into it. The setting is wonderfully fresh and offers an ingenious samurai atmosphere, the great story told is carried by multi-layered characters and the combat system is extremely motivating. With each unlocked upgrade, with each combat style learned, you can feel how you slowly become a powerful samurai, for whom it suddenly no longer seems so impossible to drive the Mongolian armed forces from his home island of Tsushima. In addition, there are useful side tasks, beautifully presented treasure hunts and grandiose staged katana duels with particularly strong opponents. Ghost of Tsushima is a real experience, an excellent exclusive game and rightly the Playstation Game of the Year 2020. Those who own a PS4 or PS5 must not miss this must-see title.
