With 2019 coming to an end (and bringing the whole decade down with it) we've chosen to look ahead. The upcoming games for 2020 look very much like nostalgia, but with innovations and hardware to support our newly acquired tastes and sensibilities.

New Year's Eve is on the horizon and 2019 is coming to an end. We hope you had a good one. Goodbyes are often hard but fresh beginnings can (and do) take the edge off. 

We have gathered here today to take a look at what awaits us in the inaugural year of the next decade. The 7 games we're most excited about - for Q1 of 2020 at least - are as follows and in no particular order:

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

First up we have the one our very own SubReal can't wait to get his hands on. Originally named Dragon Ball ProjectZ, the game was officially announced at E3 2019 and it will have the players relive a portion of Goku's life and death experiences.

Release date: 17 January 2020

Platform: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps

Yours truly loved Ori and the Blind Forest and this fragile heart is ready to be broken again in 2020. Announced at E3 2017, Ori and the Will of the Wisps will launch sporting some new movement abilities and autosaves.

Release date: 11 March 2020

Platform: Xbox One, PC

Darksiders Genesis

Stadia and PC players already have access to this one, but we're here to show some love to the console version. Darksiders Genesis will launch on Valentine's Day in 2020 so keep in mind that you might be faced with an awkward decision. 

Release date: 14 February 2020

Platform: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

THQ Nordic Darksiders Genesis - Strife Darksiders Genesis - Strife

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows

Bandai Namco's upcoming fighting game will, of course, feature the man himself - Saitama. Other familiar faces that have been confirmed include Genos, Hellish Blizzard, Mumen Rider, Speed-o'-Sound Sonic, among others.

Release date: 28 February 2020 (worldwide)

Platform: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC

Doom Eternal & Doom 64

Delayed back in October 2019, Doom Eternal and its pre-order bonus Doom 64 are coming in March 2020. The reason for the delay was that developer id Software wanted to make certain the game lives up to their high standards of speed and polish. 

Release date: 20 March 2020

Platform: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

Half-Life: Alyx

Valve's Half-Life: Alyx will serve as a prequel to Half-Life 2. The title will also launch as a VR exclusive and feature gravity gloves.

Release date: March 2020

Platform: PC (supported VR systems)

Final Fantasy VII Remake

A remake of the 1997 game, the new Final Fantasy VII will first launch for its PlayStation 4 fans. The title will be a timed exclusive, however, and will become available to PC and Xbox One owners one year after the initial release.

Release date: 3 March 2020 (3 March 2021)

Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC
