GI Show – Most Underrated Games Of 2020 And Back 4 Blood Impressions

by Ben Reeves on Dec 17, 2020 at 12:30 PM

On this week's episode of The Game Informer Show, we do something a little bit different. Instead of talking about all the games we've been playing recently, we look back over the year and talk about some of our favorite overlooked gems, such as: Chicken Police, Manifold Garden, Creaks, UnderMine, Gears Tactics, Monster Sanctuary, Necrobarista, Alba: A Wildlife Adventure, Huntdown, Morbid: The Seven Acolytes, Sakura Wars, Call of the Sea, The Last Campfire, Ikenfell, Monster Train.

Then we revisit The Game Award winners and settle a bet. We then take some time for another fantastic round of community emails. Finally, we close out the show with Alex Stadnik and Alex Van Aken who talk about their hands-on time with Turtle Rock Studios' upcoming 4-player zombie shooter Back 4 Blood. So please join Kim Wallace, Dan Tack, Marcus Stewart, Alex Stadnik, and myself for another wild and ever-entertaining episode!
