A mythical masterpiece. Hades fast became one of the most popular games of 2020. It's a unique eye-catching mix of an RPG, roguelike, and hack-and-slash combat. The game features an interesting isometric viewpoint, similar to the one found in League of Legends. The player controls the son of Hades, who goes through various dungeon-like rooms that are randomly generated from predetermined layouts. The gameplay allows you to build your character stronger as you make your way through the narrative story, but with any roguelike game, once you die, you return back to your original starting point and do lose most of your buffs.
Why is Hades so special? Some may look at it as just another random fighting RPG, but the real reason Hades became so successful in 2020 was due to the fact that it was able to tie elements of multiple different game styles all into one fantastic piece that can be challenged over and over again in order to further excel in each run-through. Some RPG's lack content, or have an awkward fighting system, while others may force you to do significant amounts of grinding. Roguelike games often times can lack any sort of real direction or story, causing the gameplay to be slightly bland and less immersive. Hades is one of those rare complete packages that really does the genres of RPG and roguelike games both justice at the same time. If you're someone who wants a little bit of everything in your games, Hades may be a good pick to add to your list.
