    Respectable. Happy New Year🗽

  2. Dolph Loco on April 25, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    Thank you for not putting the last of us at the number 1 spot. Great gameplay .. but the story just didn’t work out. I literally played part 1 ten times. I couldn’t even finish part 2 a second time. Completely walked away from it . How is a game like that game of the year

  3. OzricAurora on April 25, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    Resident evil 3 remake was terrible

  4. M W on April 25, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    anyone know what the background music is?

  5. Matt Russ on April 25, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    6:36 I think you have got Crash: Warped and Crash Bash mixed up, even then CTR was number 4

  6. babatola bejide on April 25, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    Please stop adding spoilers in your reviews!! Bomboclat

  7. garrisp on April 25, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    I would play the last of us if you didn’t have to be a girl, it looks like top 20 games of 2020 were as shitty as the year.

  8. Devilkin Gaming on April 25, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    I’m just glad TLOU2 wasn’t given the #1, it really didn’t deserve top 10 in my opinion but at least it wasn’t just given another undeserved #1

  9. Sam Dean on April 25, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Like the list except for Last of Us Part 2. But hey thats my opinion.

  10. Ezio Auditore on April 25, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Garbage list

  11. Armanie Singletary on April 25, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    Gears 🤦. The same game that based a world threat on saving the main protagonist dad followed by saving the other protagonists mom. Yikes

  12. JDINCINERATOR on April 25, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    A predictable list of typical popular games gets chosen because of course. Obviously WhatCulture aren’t the only guys who pick the same games for GOTY as everyone else but it shows how funneled interests are in the mainstream. Guessing nobody played Huntdown or Wintermoor Tactics Club? Nope I’m guessing because they aren’t in the spotlight and aren’t popular enough. Sure a lot of these games deserve to be on the list but smaller games are usually shut out.

  13. Zachary McChesney on April 25, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    The Last of Us part 2 should NOT be on this list.

  14. JMashProductions on April 25, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    I am perplexed by your review of Cyberpunk… overwhelmingly robust character customization? Compared to what? And most of the robust night city is filled with lifeless NPCs (likely due to poor RAM and VRAM utilization but still) and had few good insights to the world aside from those Lore Chips you’d find… combat was okay but putting it that high on the list feels more obligatory due to the hype than an honest assessment of the many failures and lies surrounding this title. And story, theme, and exploration opportunities definitely suffered.

  15. Musab Albarbari on April 25, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    Ghost of Tsushima first? I actually thought the last of us was better.

  16. The Narcopath on April 25, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    Were you smoking Flakka when you made this list? Half of these games were pure horseshit. I’ve been gaming for like 20 years, that’s not very long but it’s long enough to know what a good game is, and they just keep pumping out taco bell bowel supremes onto plates, and all the dumbfucks scarf it down. Not me, you got me fucked up.

  17. Isabella M on April 25, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    Cyberpunk even without the bugs is a horrible game. What a joke.

  18. The Power Channel on April 25, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    How tf is watch dogs legion on this list the game is trash

  19. Jim Smith on April 25, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    Last of us 2 goty. Miles morales is number 2

  20. Minato Arisato on April 25, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    Everyone says how putting Cyberpunk on this list is unfair, but here I am still shocked that he managed to find 20 games when I only remember 5 games, from which 1 game was actually decent and only 1 was good

  21. garrisp on April 25, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    Remakes of old classics = trying to appease Chinese censorship.

  22. Inferno Nugget on April 25, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    Where’s red dead redemption 2? Outa the damn way!

  23. Trevor G on April 25, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    I feel like the last of us 2 would’ve been considered a masterpiece by all if they made it so no one knew it was in the last of us universe

  24. Jason Alv on April 25, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Doom Eternal, Hades, GOT and Cyberpunk(on high end pc) is definitely my favorite games this year

  25. J Mac Hero on April 25, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    Let’s discount The Last Of Us Part 2 and Cyberpunk 2077. Those games are controversial upon release.

  26. Toallín on April 25, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    Ghost of Tsushima was fine but way too repetitive and its story was not very well executed. It was visually great and the gameplay was fun, until it wasn’t anymore.

  27. Gaming forever on April 25, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Where is Mafia definitive edition

  28. Nikuman on April 25, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    Cyberpunk 2077 >>>>>>>>>>> FF7R.

  29. adidaskorn12345 on April 25, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    Man playstation killed it this generation. Hope ps5 keeps it going with some sequels and a new IP or 2. Wishing for bloodborne 2.

  30. Joseph Bennett on April 25, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    Here come the angry last of us 2 fans!!!!

  31. Peter Krespan on April 25, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    How much weed did you smoke before you made this list?

  32. Anthony Carroll on April 25, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    Honestly, Ghosts shouldn’t be number 1, it’s just another openworld action game along the lines of an AC game. In fact that’s pretty much what a lot of reviews, and my friends and I, called it; Assassin’s Creed Samurai. The fact that the developers added in the grayscale mode "to give that true Kurosawa esthetic and feel", but couldn’t be bothered to synch the lips for the Japanese voice track should be enough right there to disqualify it from being number one. Doom Eternal was a colossal disappointment and definitely shouldn’t have been as high as it was. Between the heavy reliance on clunky platforming, the damn ground tentacles, lack of ammo, health, and armor pickups, and the fucking Marauders, it reads borderline unplayable; but mostly, just not fun. And Cyberpunk 2077 even being on this list is a fucking joke.

  33. Marketman21 on April 25, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Some great games in there. My personal game of the year didnt make the list…Desperados 3

  34. Jackal Silva on April 25, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    All these titles on a list with the broken seizure game are now sus af 👀. Ghost of Tsushima? Do I have to wait for an official apology to find out what’s wrong with THAT game, too?

  35. Tом on April 25, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    number 17: "watch dogs legion" WHERE IS YOUR BRAIN??!

  36. Coma_Toast on April 25, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Any game that’s forced to go back to the drawing board (Cyberpunk) should never make a "Best of" list. How about rewarding games that actually come out finished and not sold on the promise of what it could be eventually.

  37. Ryan Pesch on April 25, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    I’m sorry but 2077 is a trainwreck

  38. Tyler Smith on April 25, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    I know it’s not my list but it’s weird not seeing Nioh 2, Demon’s Souls or AC Valhalla. Also shocked that Watchdogs legion made a best of the year list.

  39. Taunt Titan on April 25, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    I wonder how much naughty gog paid these sellouts to have the last of us 2 at number 2

  40. Mike B on April 25, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    I was bummed FF7 wasn’t turn based

  41. richcall1001 on April 25, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Def game of year Ghost! Awesome game! Can’t wait for a sequel!

  42. UhadiiNimun on April 25, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Demon’s Souls the best remake oty

  43. Mike B on April 25, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    The Tony hawk remake is my game of the year

  44. LIONEL KIMO on April 25, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    Great video until the cyber punk comment. Not to hate on that game. It’s actually not bad. But you said the most immersive and detailed Environment in gaming history. Are u kidding me? Ever played GTA. GTF out of here with that crap.

  45. KJ Fiegenbaum on April 25, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    A broken, refunded on PS4 Cyberpunk 2077 made greatest games of 2020? A broken, rushed game beat out all of your honorable mentions of FINISHED games? How much did you get paid to get stroke Projekt Red’s ego?

  46. Zachary G on April 25, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Bought ghost of Tsushima…
    Still haven’t played it with it downloaded on my external hard drive. Lol

  47. Welshboy on April 25, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    No mention of Persona 5 Royal? Seriously? Even after you included Cyberpunk?

  48. Gigih Setiawan on April 25, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us Part II is my top 2👍

  49. R Philly191 on April 25, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    This list sucks, every AAA game on here whether it was trash or not. U guys probably didn’t even play half these games these summaries sound like the developers wrote them for you! Lol, p.s. Ghost of Toshima sucks Nioh 2 is better
