2020 has been a crazy year for a lot of reasons, but we often forget just how many games actually came out this year. While of course, awards are subjective, it’s still fun the champion your favorite game and see it get the recognition it deserves. 

It’s great to see games like Among Us and 13 Sentinels show up in a big award ceremony (and hopefully) take home an award, but who knows.
