Podcast Episode 95: Best Games of 2020 (and more!)

Amber and Marc talk about the best games of 2020. The pandemic slowed down game playing so we’ve delayed this episode a year to allow for more gaming before we declare what is the “best”. We also look at the best games of 5, 10, and 20 years ago, because over-focusing on the new is detrimental for a number of reasons. Remember the great games of the past!
