The best action / adventure games of 2020

As this year draws to a close the eighth generation of consoles, it has bid farewell with a swansong to great games in 2020, some of which are arguably the most impressive ever on PS4 and Xbox One. Today, as part of Twinfinite’s annual awards season, we take a look back at the best action / adventure games of 2020.

The best action / adventure games of 2020

Honorable mention: Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Guide Editor Chris Jecks: In 2018, Insomniac Games brought something special to the world of video games. Marvel’s Spider-Man made our dreams come true of strolling the streets of Manhattan, moving with nonchalant grace while protecting the beloved city from the character of thugs and the vile plans of Doc-Oc.

It scraped off that Spidey itch that we’ve all had for so long, and then some, offering satisfying combat, crossing, and engaging story in one.

Fast forward to 2020 and Insomniac has brought the goods again with Spider-Man: Miles Morales. A sort of standalone extension of the original title, the game saw Peter Parker fly to Europe, leaving Miles to don the costume of Spider-Man, everyone’s favorite neighborhood.

It took me about 10 minutes to remember why I gave the original game a 4.5 / 5 rating in 2018, and I capitalized on the already great experience with the new moves from Venom that delivered powerful cinematic attacks that drop thugs in style.

These new additions to Miles’ arsenal were bolstered by a heartwarming story that gave us goosebumps at the end, and a plethora of collectibles and side challenges to keep you entertained after the credits roll.

As Spider-Man of 2018 was one of the best PS4 exclusives, Miles Morales is a no-brainer for anyone looking for more web action. Plus, it was one of the launching titles for the PS5, using the super-fast SSD and the extra power to make Miles and Manhattan look better than ever.
