Welcome to the end of the year thread. This may be a product of a bygone era, but Oct-Dec used to have a ton of new releases and the pile would take a backseat to the new hotness. This year we've got like 4-5 new games across two new console releases.
Anyway, load up the list as this one goes until the end of the year.
Some housekeeping notes.
If you're interested, m0nk3yboy, has the 12 month 2020 pile plan thread over here.
A quick reminder, in order to be considered "Pile of Shame" the game needs to be at least three months old. Otherwise, it's just a new game you haven't gotten to playing yet.
Also, if you are curious about some of the previous threads, Picks of the Pile, etc... Please go here and check out the spreadsheet I setup.
Let's get on to the games!
In keeping with the theme of the year
The 2020 Honorary Dumpster Fire Award goes to Cyberpunk 2077...
I kid, i kid...
The 2020 Pick of the Pile is
"Sony Interactive Entertainment, Insomniac Games, and Marvel have teamed up to create an authentic Spider-Man adventure. This isn’t the Spider-Man you’ve met or ever seen before. This is an experienced Peter Parker who’s more masterful at fighting big crime in Marvel's New York. At the same time, he’s struggling to balance his chaotic personal life and career while the fate of millions of New Yorkers rest upon his shoulders." (Official Site)
