For Archival purposes, I thought it might be a good idea to compile my entire top ten lists from 2020 into a single post. Just to make it easier for people to go back and look at them after the fact. So, without any more fluff, here are my favourite 10 games I actually found the time to play in 2020.
I did play a fair few indie games this year, and while there were some fun ones in the mix, such as West of Dead and the latest Shante game, none of them really left too strong an impression on me, this game was the sole exception, something I couldn’t help but have at the back of my mind for months after finishing it. The more I think about the games I didn’t play this year, the more I wonder how many little gems like this one I ended up missing out on.
Spiritfarer is a relaxed video game experience that allows the opportunity to leisurely sail through the oceans of the afterlife, farming, cooking and crafting as they acquire more materials, all wrapped around a very personal set of stories. This is a game that obviously carries some weight with the developers at it deals with the concept of death and coming to terms with no only your loved ones passing on, but your own eventual mortality.
