The best PC games of 2020: The editorial team has voted
The year 2020 will soon come to an end, some will say lucky. After all: As a gamer you were again served excellently, from triple A grenades to creative indies and unexpected insider tips, there was something for every taste. And even if the new generation of consoles deservedly received a lot of attention this year, the PC is still the number 1 gaming platform. Nowhere else is there such a variety of genres, nowhere is the game selection greater. From Factorio to Yakuza: Like a Dragon to Phasmophobia or Streets of Rage 4, the release calendar was filled to bursting again this year. Strategists, for example, were happy about the complex Crusader Kings 3 or the long-awaited comeback of Command & Conquer. Action players got a great selection with the award-winning Hades, the innovative Half-Life: Alyx or the lightning-fast Doom Eternal. And those who prefer to swing into the cockpit will feel in seventh heaven thanks to the Microsoft Flight Simulator.

PC games 2020: Our top 10 in the video

But which games do our editors have particularly impressed? We voted internally and put together a list of ten PC highlights from this year that we can warmly recommend. In doing so, we expressly did not focus on the rating, genre or level of awareness, the main thing was: They had to be good PC games. Our top 10 can be found in the video review, which you can watch here.

An important trend has continued this year: More and more large console titles are being ported from PS4 and Xbox One to the PC. In December 2019 we saw the implementation of the Halo Master Chief Collection and Detroit: Become Human, this year it was big titles like Death Stranding or Horizon: Zero Dawn. Unfortunately, the latter still had to struggle with technical difficulties when it was released, which is why it didn't make the jump into our list.

The release of the year: Cyberpunk 2077

Weak on the consoles, on the PC is fantastic for that: Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most important games of the year. Source: PC Games By far the biggest game of the year was undoubtedly Cyberpunk 2077, which was released on December 10, 2020 after years of hype. Too early, as has been shown: The sci-fi role-playing game gives a technically sad picture on the last-gen consoles, but the performance on the PS5 and Xbox One X also falls short of expectations. In the meantime, the developers of CD Projekt have admitted serious omissions, and the game has even been removed from the Playstation store. The clearly best cyberpunk experience is therefore enjoyed on the PC: If you have powerful hardware in the case, you will be delighted with the technically most rounded version, which also causes a sensation visually with higher pedestrian density and ray tracing effects. There are bugs and forgivable imperfections here too, but the bottom line is that the PC version is ahead in every respect and shows that Cyberpunk 2077 is actually ahead of the PC version in every respect. However, the game has also attracted more controversy than The Last of Us 2 - and that means something.
