Hello! And welcome to a special article where a bunch of us sit down to talk about our game of the year. And for 2020, that game is Hades. We hope you enjoy this conversation, and we hope you’re leaving such an unusual year with some good memories of the games you’ve played.
Chris Donlan: There are a lot of Roguelikes and Roguelites – what makes Hades stand above the rest? Is that even the right lens to be viewing it through?
Malindy Hetfeld: I have a counter question if I may. Just to clarify. I’m not sure what the roguelike lens entails, because that means we all have a fixed idea of what that genre is about.
