A lot of great games are coming out soon in 2020

September 3, 2020

Well, we’ve officially made it to September. This year has certainly been interesting, and video games are an excellent escape from reality when the world gets crazy - and it certainly has. A lot of incredible games have come out this year, but there are still many scheduled to come out before we wave 2020 goodbye (or, give it a swift kick out the door).

Tell Me Why - August 27

Microsoft Windows (PC), Xbox One, Xbox Series X

Tell Me Why just came out last week, and I wanted to include it on this list because I feel it has flown under the radar. Tell Me Why is the newest release by developer Dontnod Entertainment, the creators of the beloved Life is Strange series. As described by the developer on their website, Tell Me Why is centered around reunited twins Tyler and Alyson Ronan, who “ use their special bond to unravel the memories of their loving but troubled childhood.” I am a huge fan of the Life is Strange series and am really looking forward to diving into Dontnod’s latest project.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Remake - September 4

Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

“So here I am, growing older all the time, looking older all the time, feeling younger in my mind…”

If you were a gamer in the ’90s, you are most definitely familiar with the lyrics written above. The release of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Remake may not be exciting for kids today, but for people my age, this is amazing!

The Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games were a huge staple of my childhood and so many others’, with the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater being one of my most-played games during my childhood. I had it on N64 and I played it for hours on end, sometimes just playing the Warehouse level over and over. However, I did not own Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 for whatever reason and have only played it a couple times as an adult, so I cannot wait to dive headfirst into it on either my Xbox One or PS4.

Mafia: Definitive Edition - September 25

Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

Mafia II (2010) was one of the first games I got on my PlayStation 3 that I completely fell in love with, but I never got a chance to play the original game in the series. Unlike the subpar “remaster” of Mafia II that released a few months back, Mafia: Definitive Edition is a full-blown remake of the original game and it looks incredible. I am so excited to experience this story, which is set during the Prohibition Era.

The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope - October 30

Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

If you’re a fan of narrative-driven survival horror games, you’re going to want to check out Little Hope, the latest entry in the Dark Pictures Anthology series.

The first entry, Man of Medan, came out last August and it was a really unique experience and so much fun to play. Developer Supermassive Games is the team behind Until Dawn, a 2015 game of the same genre. I absolutely love this genre and I am looking forward to playing Little Hope on Mischief Night 2020.

Bonus: Games Jimmy is still looking forward to

My husband Jimmy is a huge racing fan and asked me to include two games he is looking forward to, as I am not a fan of racing games outside of Crazy Taxi and Mario Kart/other kart racers. Jimmy is really looking forward to WRC 9 (September 3) and DIRT 5 (October 9).
