Steampunk boats at the end of the world, Greek goddesses-turned-waifus, and adorable elves lost in translation - there’s a weird mix of stuff in my very first year-end round-up, and the list surprised me too, to be honest. 2020 has been a weird year, to say the least - but one of the greatest highlights for me is the fact that I get to play games and write about them, which is a huge positive in a year full of negatives.

That said, I’ve played a good chunk of games both big and small this year, and it’s hard to pick just five faves. Still, these are the ones I’m either still playing or won’t mind playing again - plus, they’re not too hard on my arms, which I recently injured from overworking (or overplaying?). So, without further ado, here are the top titles (in no particular order) that definitely brought a welcome ray of sunshine to my year this 2020.
