I planned to write about Scott Benson’s Top 10 Games of 2020, a list about “video games, capitalism, death, life, solidarity, and cats” as he described it on Twitter. But then I noticed other staff writers at Giant Bomb had done the same so I’ve grouped them all together and made a megalist of all their top games. It’s a list of lists, people!
