To close out 2020 - or start it off since this is coming out in 2021 despite the fact we recorded in 2020 - John and Neal go through their Game of the Year lists for 2020. Neal, uh, went overboard with a meticulous 30-game ranked list while John, um, looked at his OpenCritic page before we recorded and used that as a guide. We cover everything from Nintendo's first-party games to indies, and even touch on Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2, because that's a real game of the year type thing.

Send in some listener mail and let us know what you want to see from this revival. Feel to harass the Twitter account as well.
