Top 10 Best and Worst Games of 2020
"Assembled our very own top ten list of the best and worst games of 2020. To kick it off. Let's start with the worst the truly terrible of last year at number five. The worst game of last year is bleeding edge. Do you guys even remember this game? It was a pack of sugar without being an actual shooter in a market already overcrowded by other hero Shooters. Yeah instead of guns. You want to given mainly weapons that being swords knives six years now, that's entertainment at number four is Cooking Mama Cooks car and this game is absolutely my favorite of the worst because this adorable animated cooking game not only sucked because it was so tedious and repetitive. It was also a scam. Yeah, the game was an unlicensed product that served as a mining platform for cryptocurrency number three on our naughty list is not Elder Scrolls blades the game that pretended to be Skyrim but wasn't even close the game had lengthy talk scenes and tried forcing you to buy upgrades for gear. That wasn't even valuable in the first place down. That it was so insanely boring. Our number two on the sucky list is Warcraft 3 reforged wizard infuriated their entire gaming base with this one by promising fans graphical updates and cinematics upon launch instead is only got minor texture upgrades and hostile user policies the game became so hated that it received the lowest use on rated score on Metacritic as the great big Norton pointed out. You really slapped us off base with this one blizzard and Now ladies and gentlemen, the worst game of 2020 is Crucible the game was so generic all around and offered nothing new Amazon's new gaming. I thought was so poorly received that Jeff Bezos D list of the game a few days after it's released and put it back into closed Beta And as for the server's well, those were shut down on November 2020 just six months after lunch. Now, let's switch to the Great Stuff guys the games that provided a sheer joy and happiness. And what was a troubling year number five on the good list is The Last of Us Part 2? Now I know what this game was divisive due to its pacing and users playing as the bad guy but there was a ton to celebrate here. The combat was richer environments were more immersive and the stealth sections for even more intense it honestly took me a month to beat the campaign and that's not because I'm a slow player. I just hiding in the grass from each of the guards for about two hours. Our fourth best game of 2020 goes to Half Life Alex. This game was a technical Masterpiece and raised the bar for VR titles capturing detailed environments at 60fps with an incredible story predating Half-Life two before then. I thought we are games were pretty silly. This one opened my eyes and my living room Number three on our list is Ghost of tsushima this amazing Samurai sword-wielding game. Not only had a compelling storyline, but also offered a multiplayer mode where you and your friends can fight together as Samurai. Number two goes to you guessed it Animal Crossing. This game helped us make it through the pandemic as we crafted our islands and invited Burns over 40 special events or whatever you're into some people recreated game shows others held their weddings in graduation ceremonies for me. I just love scuba diving for see stars with the screw the turn of game. It's all about the stars and the number one best game of 2020 goes to cyberpunk. Yeah, the reason for this one and finally came

"It was up to ninety five from July on maybe there's something to it. I believe in in Matt Harvey at least for this one year deal. Right. So we can cross LaCroix off. We were going to get to him. We sort of already touched on him devastating loss for the athletics. Huge huge pickup for the angels. It'll probably swing the order of the division. I may be the biggest thing. We'll talk about in this section the dodgers read straight. Yeah. I mean, obviously, I I think we all can appreciate the fact that it was as much about the money moving hands. It was about the players. But yacht. Nobody cares about Homer Bailey. Most people don't care about Alex wood, but care about Alex Yossi Hct Bailey's got to fucking knows Boyce. Let's not just Homer Homer Bailey. Ran the greatest scam in major league baseball history. And I don't hate him for it either. Nobody has ever received one hundred million for doing less. Yossi plinking Cincinnati is interesting to me why lots of reasons. I'm interested to see how he reacts to being in Cincinnati. Yeah. Bird the city Dallas. Could city. I'm interested to see how he performs in a much more friendly offensive environment in his home park. I mean, I think you know, I think there's a chance that we could see like y'all most superficially impressive season, depending he was forty damn good last year. Yeah. You for forty out there. No, I'm not. But if he if he like if he hit thirty five home runs, it wouldn't surprise me at all. I mean, maybe it probably comes with the same like overall quality of slash line that it would have in Dodger Stadium. But I think if you if you more those balls leave the park, I was surprise how many reds fans listened to starring nine. We got a lot of questions from reds fans wondering whether or not they're actually going to be in contention next year. But before we start that conversation. I'm kinda just reflecting on Yasser Puig's dodger era. Sure. And I remember him coming up thirteen this guy. Is the real fucking deal because it wasn't just a hot week. Like, I remember like Lin sanity with the Knicks. And there's documentaries about that mother fucker that was one week that was one week like we came up and he lit the world on fire for the remainder of the season is incredible nine twenty five over one hundred and four games. Yeah. It was incredible. What that dude was doing? It was game winning hits. Theatrics. It was it was all of it He's been styles here. voice. They're paying Lasser every. Yeah, it was all of it. And they're ups there are downs. And I think I think that the the, you know, when we're talking about peaks and valleys of Yaseen tweaks tenure in LA, I think that the valleys sort of they were louder they were louder. But I don't think that it was it was more. So that they were more values than peaks because I'll remember a lot of the the high moments for ya COP LA. But it seems like a lot of it was that that book that came out like twenty fourteen or fifteen or whatever it was a lot of it was just shitting on your COP like from like anonymous sources within the night. Yeah. Oh night. And you know, what's interesting about that. Anonymous source Snyder Ellis. Yeah. It's interesting..

"The most powerful and most important athlete in North American sports. Like, that's not an overstatement. He is depending on how you feel about some of these global soccer guys, Alex wood or Alex would zoo Botts taking it all the. Way back like, these are the this is the list of the most powerful people the most important people in sports and LeBron is at the top of it. So it's you know, it's going to be a lot like when Kobe was in his prime with this team. I covered those teams everything was a big d this. You're the right person asks. So you were there when Kobe was winning championships? And Kobe was Kobe in full Koby. My my first year covering the team was the year that Phil Jackson came back. Okay. So that was Kobe reunited and was the first year of the smush Kwami does yours this feel that is the intensity of attention the same less more. What could compare the two it's a little bit different in the sense of you know, with with Kobe. He was in his prime. So there was this question of okay are the Lakers going to be in a position that they can maximize Kobe Bryant's prime as opposed to are the Lakers in the position of being able to maximize the backside of LeBron James's pry. There was also that storyline to of Kobe looking to do this without shack. So there was this personal urgency attached to this for reasons that I found very stupid, but they were there. Kobe had the for a lot of people. Kobe had to win his fourth championship in order to win his first. And I always thought that was really stupid. But that was the reality that will become salt like that. Yeah. He did. He always Kobe did see it that way. So in that sense. It's different because LeBron has arrived here. He may not be a made Laker. But he's a made guy. Lebron is a made guy at this point in his career. So it's it's different in terms of the way people look at the teams, but it's the same in the sense that everything and I mean, everything gets hyper scrutinized death. It's you mentioned it that Kobe was in his prime. The LeBron is at the end of his prime and logic will tell you that it has to be true. He's in his sixteenth year in the league. The number say. He's what he's always been that there. There's literally no drop off to what it is that he's done numbers wise. And this is this is where I it's kind of a parallel roads that they're his prime and the Laker window are the same and it's a four year contract, and you soom by the time we get to the end of that for your that. He's no longer the best player in the league. Now. I don't think he falls out of the top five or ten for sure. Thirty eight. I'm sure that he's not still in the top two or three because there's no indication that it's gonna stop anytime soon. None. No. I mean, there's no indication of nothing else that he can be that offensive got defensively, we see what the miles lead up to you know, you can see where it takes toll because he he has to coast a lot defensively during these games, and it's understandable with everything that he's put on his body. But that's the difference is, you know, Kobe in his prime defensively was a beast like Kobe was one of the best defenders in the league in his prime. So Raj in the only one that's upset at the Cowboys. There's a seven year old Dallas that has thoughts on Jerry Jones. We'll get into that. Plus a classic bit of the day. That's next happy birthday French Montana. That's your wheelhouse. No hands. Scarface have some coming out. More of a Belgian Wyoming guy. French montana. What that's this. I'll take your word for happy birthday, Mr. French Montana once with khloe, correct? And he khloe. Yeah. So seven year old wrote Jerry Jones a letter said, quote, you have made my mom very mad because we suck every game day. She's yelling at the TV and turns off the game. That was a a young man named Ryland in Dallas writing to Jerry Jones. Have we ever seen what Raja's handwriting looks like in crown? We sure that this was seven year old right to run down in crayon..

"You need to have a long-term goals in mind. The union manage these things for one hundred sixty two games and not one or two or three in the playoffs. I think you know, they've designed the roster to be able to give A Roberts as much flexibility as they possibly can. So that bullpen teams like Milwaukee. For example, they have the the, the dodgers have the ability to mix and match and e use a pinch hitter in any situation because you have four guys compla- eight positions behind him and you're not limited in that way. But things like the pitching change with Alex would like that to me, feels like something that is Dave Roberts maybe being so indoctrinated in this is how we're gonna use our antics that he's forgetting that. You know today is today Alex wood, the bed. Option to face a left or you think that was his call and not the front office scripted that I as I think the front office scripted, maybe I'll be honest, I run off, but if if the front office scripted that in that way, then the front office is wrong and how they're using their analytics, and I can figure that out if I can figure that out and that's bad because it just it's Pedro by as in the moment in the last few moments he's dealing, he was in, but he's it's not just like recency bias. He's been much better than Alex wood for a while. Now in coming out of the bull has been terrible in the post they right, exactly. And he gives up these giving up a home run in every series. And so it's easy. You don't need to dig all that deep into the numbers to see it. You know, Alex would isn't as good as Pedro bio sued the choice. You're making his a lesser pitcher, a slightly better matchup versus a much better pitcher against a better hitter. And I will always take. The more talented player and the better player to come through when you need it? Yeah. How much is riding the hot guy? He had two strikeouts. Yes, I'd the hot guy lowing people out and even hot in this moment. Stephen, that's what bothers me so much. It's not even hot. Just in that exact moment. He's been this guy for six weeks now. Bias has. Yeah, he has absolutely has. Now I wanna point out because it's been pointed out to me that on Twitter and I've been tweeting the games live. I did not question the move to Alex would in the seventh inning. And that is true. I did not question that move, and I did not question whether or not Alex would should be on the postseason roster. I still felt like as a long man, he made sense, but there's no question Rafael Devers batted two twenty three against left Jackie Bradley. One eighty five against left handers, but I. Again, last night clearly should have been second-guessed beforehand. And a little bit of this is is hindsight is twenty twenty because I was listening to the radio broadcast and they didn't question it either. I think most of Los Angeles is going, Alex would there were they were doing the same thing that Greg used to do in bias was putting the game like that's that was the reaction..

"I'm leaving. I'm with you. But the question that I asked the beginning the series was about Dave Robertson. How much has he grown as a manager knowing that he made some decisions last year based upon the numbers and charts and these things supposed to go seems like last night was more of what we saw season ago and not willingness to chain. We're still talking about nineteen eighty eight instead of two. Thousand seventeen. Let's go to Miguel, Miguel yard voted show what's going on McGill. Hey, guys, thanks for taking my call and I just wanted to say, you know what? At some point you gotta go with what you see. Yes. All the Pedro buys has been dominating in the playoffs TD and Alex would frankly, Alex wood is our new old Pedro bias. These, you know, just keep on, you know, with Mark Pryor in the bullpen, have them cheer for the team, and he's our last resort. Wanted to say, thanks, I look, he's not wrong. You're going to have a situation. We saw it against Milwaukee where you haven't game that goes, eleven twelve, thirteen fourteen. Everybody's got a pitch in that situation. Okay. There were down to our last guy was not pinched, wasn't the game was on the line and he went with something that will work more often than not over the course of a season as opposed to. You know what right now? I haven't seen somebody take a good swing against this guy all night long. I'm not take. I don't care if he's right handed left hand. Both handed. I'm leaving him out there. He is dealing, you know, the thing that if we're going to have a silver lining about this, consider this. Are as an music air quotes gets rocked right? We we serve up. Are going to be, you know, worst pitching option to to give up all the games. We were right there despite facing there as despite are given up all the games right out the gate couldn't even get to the fifth out of the fast. We were still right there and it was because we inserted our worst pitching option that we got that we lost that game. I'm encouraged because game to we putting out a guy who's a better pitcher, right? They're putting guy who's a worse pitcher. And I don't think we're gonna see, Alex. Fingers crossed fingers crossed. We see the problem is with all that. I think somewhere in Boston, Dave Roberts win. He is going to put him back in. He is now do that talk today. How many do it Russ get Dave talking? No, no. Phone, not good. He said he said, don't worry about it. I talked to Mason a minute going boss. We straight. We're going to talk to Mason. Mason is in Boston in not calling it that Raj. Let you call that when it comes on the host of the Beantown buddies. No deep basin live from Boston next where we liked Alex spot. Boy, Elsie. God give me the resou- boy Elsie. Keep believe you talk bad about these guys. I didn't talk bad about just marveled at how the aging process impacted them differently than other African Americans. Hey, man. That bad sake. Because as I say, like, we're all around the same age. Well, I'm Noah donnas. I certainly don't like somebody damn grandfather and I'm looking and I'm like, hey, y'all just out there while let me know, planet fitness, gym. Just we just his corn bread and we just go to enjoy life. I guess it's good corn, bread ages, a person. I mean, if you don't counteract with mesh. Well, just drink some damn water.

"It was really good. Good bias comes in was great. My ADA was fine Karger soon, but that's was fine. Ryan Madson did a good job. Kenley Jansen had one of his US out seen a really long time every ready, ready ready. Don't say it. Alex wood was really good. What did it could? Joe is not blind Dylan deals. We were texting. I don't know. I call them floor by the way he was great. He struck out a couple of guys never in any trouble, and then Julio odious comes in and was lights out. He'd looked hidden. He hasn't pitch much at all. He was Shil. He was cool. Four appearances towards the end of the regular season, and I asked you guys, would you put them on a roster. Bullpen just in case the obviously they did for the for the CIs and he had smoked. Yeah, I forgotten. Yes. Smoked seen a pitcher so long, and that's why they keep showing that ninety something with pitches. Oh, yeah, that's right. He has stopped. He has what the I like him for the same reason. I like bueller. Instead he's got the ability to just go out there and light you up. And if in a guy with that kind of arm puts it in somewhere between a mediocre to a good spot, you're not touching him. I, it's that good stuff. It's when the stuff is to just mediocre than if you miss your spot, you get clobbered these guys. I mean, you looked at the brewers guys last night one after the next that Garre everybody. Just when you throw ninety eight and your margin for error is pretty big. And when you got that heat on smoke is coming down, you is is hard to hit it. Obviously, you can see just based on the replays how they the bats were behind all night. And then the sound when they catch the ball. Myself sitting down at about so. And I must really be hard to hit. You'd think strike outs later. Here's Cody Bellinger talking about how it felt to put the ball in play at the end of the game. Yeah, it's probably a feeling that you won't forget you guys chase after you. Honestly, I was surprised that there are throwing me. I thought they're going to try and pitch around me and give me the swing. And once I saw that they were attacking me, it was just kind of grind mode and do it. You can't put the ball in play in China in this game that has to be such an unbelievable feeling to have that walk in the catch that he made in right field. I mean, that was a ball. I know that the stat gas gives you all these crazy numbers. Now he covered this amount of distance in this amount of time. The one in right field, the sliding diving. Yeah. Yeah, that was a catch that according to those stat casts only gets caught sixteen percent of the time that was gonna get jump. You got a great job. He's fast. He's a good ad. This is a guy that plays for Spacey play centerfield. He was in right field amid a somebody was fast. It was wow. Man who beat out that somebody was fast for from Milwaukee. Last night. He beat out the double play. He beat out. The double play. Coty was moving. I can't think of who was now was it might have been our CB out the double play, but I'm talking about they show the reply, wasn't even close from like Dami fast. Oh, they can. They can fly. I mean, these are two pretty evenly matched. Here's some really good news for the we were talking about before kenley Jansen pitched two innings last night. So it's kind of, okay. They hadn't used them into in consecutive innings in a long time. They had to last night as a no brainer. It was the right decision to do it and he pitched great, but you wonder how effective he'll be today on the heels of that. The flip side is Josh Hader hasn't pitched in three consecutive games all season. He pitched last night. He pitched onto our on Monday night..

"They did it again in beating pittsburgh on tuesday night and this is also fascinating to me how they've handled the disabled list yesterday was alex wood and coley bellenger went on the deal oh i remember last year talking with dodger people and they were complaining boy events such terrible luck with injuries and i felt at the time that that was a little bit disingenuous because i thought that what the dodgers were doing were taking advantage of the tremendous depth at the front office is built up and just telling players look you know want make sure your healthy we'll make sure that you're good we don't have to rush you're back we have other good players who could step up in your place thirty seven times this season most in history since that data was first recorded in 1988 and i get the sense they probably did that with alex wood and cody belhadj or maybe those guys could have battled through this and tried to play and alex wood could have kept on pitching it probably been fine but instead the dodgers are taking advantage of their depth and also their place in the standings and just telling the players just go get healthy well let's employee right poster i would do the exact same thing why in the world would you push somebody even of cody ballanger ankles just a little sore why would you push it and make it make it worse on any level you have time to get it right and that's what they're doing with their use of the disabled list in a lot of cases going back to hundred 25 games buster you have to put the wins and losses together now you have to say it ninety and 35 think about that the killers that's 98 yankees forty four cardinals wartime team fifty four indian thirty one as that's list of teams that have been ninety and thirty five that's where the dodgers are right now if they win today it's just amazing what that team does and all they're trying to do now is win as many as they can way more important than that be as healthy as they can on october the first.

"He he got out of it without giving up any runs and he's uh you know to me alex woods is race in the whole if darvish stinks if he can towns to pitch like he pitched the last game with the rangers and he just as an half it and in for lack of a better term the dodgers purchased a lemon i still think they're going to the world series because of alex wood for her but the problem is alex woods never pitched in big games darvish is only pitched in a couple that alexander housing visiting lady i don't know that i feel any differently even though as great as this year's been as great as the dodgers look this year i don't know that i really feel differently about the cubs i think they're rounding in the form it 989 under no and ramona listen to none other than magic johnson was one hundred percent royal oak dodds who food we've wounds goes gasol only ring are don't meet rooms screw the cubs screw the nationals screw everybody they don't have nine walk off wins they don't have 33 comefrombehind victories they're not getting home runs outta nowhere from guys like chris taylor address looking for their first lead of the night chris taylor hammers of fly holiday center in central algiers later sailor starts air i'm not backing off i don't care what you said i don't care what mason says i would i would also build new exist exactly i am all in with magic johnson the dodgers are going to win the world series this is our year i you'll come and get us if you can get the dodgers arrived at the best certain base while they get the best offense to get the best even to get the best picture zinho by the way we got our shiny new pitcher tonight.

"Iran to 250 an averaging ten strikeouts for nine annex iv ever that's how good he has been so forget the nearly twenty homers use allowed look at the rest of the numbers he is still the best pitcher in baseball no arguments with that approach in our guest right now another going to talk about he wasn't allstar this year for the first saw justin turner us having a heck of a season obviously you qualify right now otherwise he will be leading the league with batting average but where do the work submergence come from the last few years from him were throughout his career he was the okay player at best in all of a sudden is like the dodgers found some uh some gold here right again this is the beauty of baseball this is kind of and alex wood version as a hitter what happened was he met marlin bird and they at every day for an entire offseasons a tried a new approach he said i'm going to get the ball up in the air i'm going to try new swing and he made the adjustment and he's gone from good utility player to a really good every day player and this has always been my point fellas you guys play the other sports and all that but this doesn't happen nearly as often in footballer basketball guy at twenty nine years old or so doesn't suddenly learn how to shoot the three he could do that when he was eighteen but in baseball the light goes on at certain times and in my experience there's usually no great reason why the light went on and wife goes off but it happens like this all the time in baseball because of the degree of difficulty of the game and one little thing can throw you off.

"All right what is may soon ireland bans back i'm here to my next vacation which could come at any moment any moment john right to you asked me about kelly janssen's comments he said what we basically came out and blame the fans for justin turner and a alex would not be on the all star team alex wood you couldn't vote for correct yeah so but he was asked about it he said i it also eating be kinda doubled down at he said alsayed again this is one hundred percent the dodger fans fault right all right so here's how it looked at that he's not totally wrong the dodger fans could have voted more but you know the game seventy percent city can't see the game so it's of out of sight outta mind a little bit but most of all nolan aeronautical is a really really good third baseman yeah i mean you could make the argument that he deserves to start as you pointed out alex wood is not chosen by the fans matter of fact there are thirty two spots on the national league allstar team eight the position players the starters are chosen by the fence so that leaves twenty four spots four other you know for either mlb or the players to vote people in right my argument will be what was mlb and the players thinking here's one guy at the time was eight no who had a nice teno yet with a one point six era i mean that's just you put up those numbers in your in and justin turner was it in three eighty four and integrated actually went through the roster and said will every team representative so there were three or four guys vietnam but there were five or six people that just turn should have been put in ahead of yep and there were all there were probably seven pitchers that he could have that alex wood could have done it it's all going to work at i think today at three o'clock they're going to announce turner that when they voted in yet and i think as soon as dave roberts said last night the clinton kertih as pitching for the dodgers on sunday making him ineligible to pitch in the allstar game i think alex wood we'll get his spot.
