I thought 2019 was a big year for console thanks to Black Desert’s multiple console launches, but 2020 was far from shabby itself. The arrival of Phantasy Star Online 2 after so many years on console and then on PC was certainly cause for celebration, plus we saw several games port to the Switch – and Skyforge is slated to make that leap soon too.
Of course, there are plenty of other core MMORPGs that are comfortably ensconced on last-gen consoles, from Final Fantasy XIV and Elder Scrolls Online and Star Trek Online to DC Universe Online and TERA and Neverwinter. This is a great place to be as the new-gen consoles are arriving, especially considering how paltry the offerings were seven years ago during the last generational transition.
I still favor the Switch if I can’t get to my home PC, but plenty of our readers and writers shell out for every console that hits the market, and I know you play MMOs there. So which MMO boasts the best console experience at the end of 2020?
