It goes without saying that 2020 has been one hell of a year, but at this stage let's just celebrate the things that went right. Because if there's one industry that largely emerged unscathed from the horrors of You Know What, it's video games.
On the top-tier side we've got DOOM Eternal, Final Fantasy VII's remake and The Last of Us Part II. Animal Crossing: New Horizons broke Switch records for day one sales, Ghost of Tsushima channeled Zelda: Breath of the Wild's HUD-discarding charms, and Ori & the Will of the Wisps might just be the finest thing on Xbox hardware since Halo 3.
Downsides include The Avengers being a bit naff and Halo Infinite being delayed indefinitely, but honestly, when you take a step back and drink in the positives of what 2020 offered gaming, there's a ton to be thankful for.
With that in mind, let's steer away from the spotlight-demanding titles you've already heard about, and recommend some overlooked gems to play across the holiday period.
