Jarret and Nick are joined by Kurabara to welcome 2021 by celebrating their favorite games of 2020. Nick jokes about spending all his time watching his kids and Kurabara talks about his saga of trying to return his now extra pc-copy of Cyberpunk, while Jarret talks about the recent mashthosebuttons.com site redesign.
Nick kicks things off by talking about his time playing the fastest selling PC game of all time, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. He is excited for the story. Kurabara has played as well and shares his thoughts.
Kurabara then runs down his list with Jarret of his games of 2020, starting with Animal Crossing. Jarret argues that its wasn't a great game because it benefited from the pandemic, but Nick counters by claiming that is exactly why it deserves to be game of the year. Kurabara also brings up Fall Guys and Among Us as games that got attention this year. Kura also mentions the Last of Us 2, which Jarret claims deserved its Game Awards Accolades. He also mentions Doom Eternal which Jarret compares to the 2016 Doom. Kura liked Star Wars Squadrons while Jarret did not. They did both agree that Final Fantasy VII Remake was exceptional, and Jarret in particular liked the ending. Kura said Hades was a great game, and Jarret said it was top 5 but not game of the year material. Kura also mentioned Cyberpunk 2077 despite its well known issues.
Jarret loved Ori and the Will of the Wisps, which had a final boss fight with no floor that impressed Jarret. They discussed Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and how it was more of the same, and that isn't always a bad thing. Jarret then considered GTFO as it was released in early access at the very end of December 2019.
Jarret ended by talking about some games that were disappointments, including Watchdogs: Legion and Destiny 2: Beyond Light.
