Here are the Holiday 2020 games that you need to keep an eye out for! Note that only games confirmed to be released later this year qualify.
Weird the only one of those I wanted to play was Cyberpunk and even then I am planning on cancelling my discounted pre order... I think I am too stressed out to enjoy gaming anymore...
what's stressing you out though? Is it gaming related or just life related? I find that gaming is actually a form of stress relief for me. Anyway, try take it easy, just pace yourself :)
Words of wisdom right here! He's right, games should be relieving your stress, not adding onto it. If you're feeling overwhelmed, take a break.
Newborn child stuck at home with zero outside contact or help besides wife who is back at work full time and doing extended hours... I tried gaming but I get either super irritated when I can't beat a level because it sucks in too much time I cant spare or I feel just guilty because I have so little energy and time to spare that I feel bad putting any at all into gaming.... Thats the short of it.
@CoffeeBlack910 you're probably unto something maybe I just need to give gaming a break for a few months or years.
Yep I suffer from anxiety and gaming is great for chilling me out, nothing stressful about gaming apart from PES rage
I agree. Gaming is a hobby, an escape, a form of entertainment and it most certainly isn't anything worth getting stressed out over. This situation that the entire world is in has forced millions of people to change their daily routines and some have suffered far worse. If you aren't among those who are suffering and being crushed by financial uncertainty you should be grateful. If you're sitting around the house thinking doom and gloom all day, get out of the house, breathe in the fresh air, and try to avoid the negative thoughts. Gaming isn't the source of your stress. The entire world is facing a massive upheaval and like ArchangelMike said, pace yourself and I'd also like to add that getting some exercise helps too.
Take it easy, a break isn’t a bad idea. Don’t give in to FOMO & come back whenever you feel like it, & if you need someone to talk to please not me! /jk ;) sorry had to make the joke hopefully you smiled :)
Wait your depressed because your wife is paying all the Bill's and you get to be a stay at home mom? Man I wish I had your problems. Try working 17 hour days and weekends making almost 0 dollars and 2 newborn kids. Cmon man, this cant really be your issue.
Issues come in all shapes and sizes dude
Just breathe. Take some time to concentrate on yourself & your family,gaming will always be around for you to come back to when you feel the need.

I myself am growing out of gaming and becoming less passionate in general. Passion comes from the Greek word "pathos" for "pain". My life is way less painful now ever since I learned about advanced dietetics and advanced detoxification.
Been there with my kids years ago...take a break, focus on new born, goes by real quick and makes for great memories later !
Read your explanation of why you’re stressed. I took a year long break from AAA gaming when my first and second kids were born. Years later now the kids are older I am enjoying gaming more than ever. I used to get my gaming fix by dipping in and out of simpler handheld games games instead. Many of those are easy to pick up and put down. No complex controls, long story arcs or long cut scenes. Worked well for me so thought I’d pass it on to you in case it helps. Hang in there, this phase isn’t for ever. You’ll be just fine in time and know that being a parent gets much easier offer the newborn phase.
When we had our Son 12 years ago I was in a similar situation. Fast forward a bit and you will find video games as a great way to spend time with your kids. Promise you. Do what you gotta do for now. Time changes things.
I used to think Cyberpunk was my most anticipated game. After TLOU2 and GoT.....Cyberpunk has huge shoes to fill. And I'm still expecting Cyberpunk to be awesome. Great year in gaming (for some).
I was hesitate at first with Ghost of Tsushima, but wow am I glad I picked that one up! It's probably my current GOTY.
Same. It's my GOTY. I have no idea how anyone can rate this as a 6/10. LOL. Like, what kind of games do you dig, then?
GoT is my current GOTY and one of my top 5 games of the generation. It was so so so refreshing to play a game in current year without any politics shoved down my throat. That in it's self was a minor miracle. I haven't played tlou2 yet, and I think I might have fun with it I've read the spoilers and as a film maker I won't be able to overlook the glaring narrative issues, especially if I feel certain plat points are being forced to fit with an agenda.
I just hope it doesn't get delayed again :/
GoT my GOTY also.. Super fun game, love it. I dont think Cyber will fill it, but I still think it'll be a great game
I only played 2 hrs of TLOU2 because of my backlog but I put that on hold as well to play GOT & the game is just amazing so far,about to start Act 3. It seems the AAA games releasing this fall do have huge shoes to fill.
If everything goes to plan these should all be pretty good. Though I admit it feels weird getting really excited when the state of the world is what it is.
Spider-Man is the only game that appeals to me, thankfully I can just play more retro games this year, which are honestly more enjoyable for me than modern day GAAS grind-fests.
I'm interested in everything except Halo:Infinite & WD:Legion.
Pretty much claim # 1 was incorrect saying that Cyberpunk was originally slated to be released in April.
I'm looking more forward to Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 more than Cyberpunk. Absolutely love the first Bloodlines and will definitely try the very first VTM in the future.
Upset Cyberpunk was delayed to November Halo will be taking all my attention and was hopeful to have beaten Cyberpunk by that time. If there's not at least a 2 week gap between releases I will not be getting Cyberpunk in 2020
Cyberpunk 2077 - I will end up getting it on GOG. Halo Infinite - Will wait for reviews. AC Vahalla - I have a feeling that this game isn't going to have much challenge to it, and why does the animus need to still be connected to an AC game? Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales - I will keep an eye on this because Miles is awesome. The fact that the article decided to bring up BLM is embarrassing. Watch Dogs: Legion - The combat does look fun, but it is better for me to wait for reviews. Marvel’s Avengers - I have enjoyed Marvel games, but this one worries me because of Kamala Khan, GAAS, and a Black Widow that still looks mannish.
Cyberpunk 2077, Halo Infinite, and Watch Dogs Legion for me.
this didnt age well...
