In short, Hades remains a great success, even on the Nintendo hybrid console. Also excellent Ori and the Will of the Wisps, a very good port that confirms the partnership between Microsoft and the Kyoto House. Unmissable on the podium Animal Crossing: New Horizons, certainly one of the main titles of the year just ended.

We just have to hope for an equally valid 2021 from a videogame point of view.
