The Best Games of 2020 You Can Finish Under 10 Hours
Don't like games with the story spread over 50 hours? Hate side quests that distract you from history? So we have prepared a list of new productions, which can be completed in under 10 hours!
- Release date: September 25, 2020
- Developer: Valve Software
- Genre: VR FPS
- Average time to beat according to howlongtobeat.com: 11 hours and 34 minutes (8 hours and 46 minutes in a hurry)
Yes, Half-life: Alyx does exceed the ten hour limit we adopted as the norm, but for one of the best games of this year, it is probably worth turning a blind eye to these extra 1.5 hours. Valve finally enabled us to return to the world of Half-life, to a period somewhere between the events of the first and second installment, but unfortunately using technology that requires VR goggles. In the game, we play as the eponymous Alyx, who, along with her father, explores the secrets of the sinister Combine to defeat it once and for all.
The advantage of the new Half-Life is an extremely interactive world that enables you to freely explore and solve puzzles, for which the devs creatively employed the need to use VR goggles. Shooting also brings a lot of new solutions, forcing you to move your own body when leaning out from behind corners or using your fingers to reload weapons. It's a revolutionary game and a mandatory item for every owner of the right hardware – regardless of the number of hours spent with it.
