What's The Best Game Of 2020's First Half?

We have officially crossed the halfway point of the year and while 2020 has thrown a big ol' wrench through everyone's plans, we still managed to already rack up a few stellar games. So lest we forget around Game of the Year time, let's try and go over what the best games have been, so far.

TLOUp2 will probably win the most and the internet sheeps will go crazy lol WATCH.

The idiots have some valid points that were mostly glossed over in the major reviews, mainly having to do with the story and writing. Naughty Dog just hasn’t been the same since Uncharted 3, and the only person I can think to blame it on is Neil Druckmann.

What have you been smokin?
Uncharted 4, Lost Legacy, Last of Us, Left Behind and Last of Us Part 2... everything ND released after Uncharted 3 is becoming better and better, with Part 2 being the most impressive game of them all.

Well, that iof course is my opinion and millions with me.

Neil Druckmann is a genius.

LoveSpuds31d ago (Edited 31d ago )

The same old tired arguements trotted out by insecure people who believe some false narrative that Druckmann built these games as a political instrument.

The fact is, the direction taken since Uncharted 3 has resulted in a much more mature, nuanced and carefully told stories. No more relying on 'nazi zombie monsters' or 'thousand year old blue warriors' or any other supernatural mumbo jumbo to tell a story. Instead, we get more adult themes, emotionally impactful story telling, and a more interesting cast of characters.

I can appreciate there are some who genuinely didn't like TLoU2 story because they killed off fan favourites, but to those people, I would challenge them to consider that the emotions they feel about the story were exactly what ND wanted to ilicit.

As soon as someone talks about Druckmann having agendas I just roll my eyes, people making those arguments need to look at themselves and ask why they dislike the idea of a Studio including more varied characters in their work, because the argument that its heavy handed or shoe horned into the games is utterly false. The characters have depth, the story telling and scripts are beautifully crafted and nuanced and, even as a straight, white male, I can immediately relate and empathise to all of characters in the ND games.

The love scenes and expressions of love between Nate and Elena in Uncharted 4 were beautiful and believable, as we're the similar scenes between Ellie and Diana, funny how only one of these couples draw any hate though?

Im not sure if you're aware but there is a team of 400/500 people there, not only Drukman, and blame for what? To pushing this industry up?

ZeroBlue230d ago

I've been pretty happy with their work up until part 2. I'm happy to write this off as a fluke though, and excited to see where they go next.

A meta of 94. So all the reviewers are crazy ? This game is gonna get majority gotys. Just accept it and move on.

Same thing can be said about Game of Thrones season 8, that's how they expected and wanted people to react to the series finale, disappointed and irritated. Genius!

LoU2 was a mess of a story and a waste of time, nothing resolved, nothing gained. You knew exactly how the game would play out after joel died, all about revenge. No deeper meaning or plot, just revenge bad. Very shallow. LoU was the peak of their story telling and character development, all downhill since then.

I have made $13594 last month by working online from my home. I am a full time college student and by just doing this in my free time for few hours per week by using my laptop, I payed off my student loans. Check this out and start making cash online in so incredibly simply way by just following instructions on this website...

Just disappointed that people can't see the bigger picture. ND's culture isn't sustainable, that's why Amy and Bruce left.

King_Noctis31d ago (Edited 31d ago )

IMO this should win RPG of the year. But since it is not a new game, I don’t think they will put it into discussion especially with Cyberpunk 2077 also coming out this year.

ZeroBlue230d ago

It basically is a new game. There is so much added content, it really does feel like a new game, even before you get to the new story segments.

King_Noctis30d ago

"There is so much added content, it really does feel like a new game"

I don't feel the same way. There are some new cutscene and mechanics sprinkled in here and there, but the overall plot largely remain the same.

Sunny1234530d ago

Its a great game. But then again a remake......

V3geta31d ago

The last of us 2, by far. Not only do I expect it to remain the best game of the year, but this generation as a whole.

indysurfn29d ago (Edited 29d ago )

It gets enough critical acclaim and especially media coverageh to win game of the decade. The only thing that may hold it back is there are WAY too many people that HATE Survival/zombi games. But I think it will win because the fans dont really have a say. They just tell us what they say we say.

Chard31d ago (Edited 31d ago )

Trials Of Mana. Fight me

indysurfn29d ago I will not fight you. You probably have good reflexes after playing that game!

Mr Marvel31d ago

For me it’s out of AC New Horizons and TLoU2.
Ghost of Tsushima has the potential to surpass them both though imo.
