Games of the Year 2020: The Playlist

My #GamesOfTheYear articles have historically focused on games that were released that calendar year. If a game came out in December and I didn't get to it until January it simply disappeared into the ether. That doesn't makes sense especially when games of the past can colour my opinion on the releases of the present.

Going forward I want to keep a list of every game I played that year so I can look back and see how the games of the past stack up to the latest and greatest.
