Gamers' and Editor's Choice: Wasteland 3

RPGWatch GoldRPGWatch Gold

Wasteland 3 continues the tradition of the Wasteland and early Fallout series. It features character building, many choices and consequences, skill checks, a weird postapocalyptic storyline and lots of turn-based combat. While not perfect the game has improved in all aspects compared to Wasteland 2.

A worthy GotY 2020!




Gamers' Runner Up: Cyberpunk 2077

RPGWatch Silver

If it had been in development a little longer Cyberpunk 2077 would perhaps be the GotY 2020. The sci-fi world of Cyberpunk 2077 offers lots of storylines and quests and a fantastic looking Night City - a place to immerse yourself.

Chances are good that CD Project Red will enhance the game in 2021.



Gamers' Third Place: Horizon Zero Dawn

RPGWatch Bronze

Horizon Zero Dawn is a proof that more and more blockbuster console games are getting released on the PC and are successful on this platform as well.

All other games scored a percentage of less than 1.3%. And for the record, The first 3 games had respectively 26%, 21% and 6% of the votes. But the game that should have been in 3rd spot is None, which had 20% of the votes.

There were not many votes from the RPGWatch staff. The only game that almost everyone voted for was Wasteland 3. All other games that were voted for received a vote from one editor only, which is why there is only 1 game as Editor's Choice.
