Despite everything, 2020 has been a big year for games. We’ve got two (three, technically) new consoles, and more people are spending more time playing games than ever before. Remember everyone going wild for Animal Crossing? Yeah, that happened. Elijah Wood even popped into someone’s village for a turnip. Though, like, I’m sure someone grows those in the Shire, but anyway. Unprecedented: that’s a good word for 2020. And I hope you’ve all managed to weather it OK.
Here, I’ve tried to bring together a year’s worth of different pieces from all the voices we now have on the site. And I’ve done it in the hope you maybe missed something you now have time to read. So bookmark it and come back on your way to get cold leftovers from the kitchen, and discover something new. And if you like what you read, click on the author’s name for more work by them.
Thank you to all of our contributors and to you for reading Eurogamer. Merry Christmas one and all.
