Coming in at #4 is the first game on this list to get 3 votes, although this isn't the first time Psychonauts 2 has been on a 10 Most Anticipated PC Games list by Choicest Games: the game featured on the 2018 and 2019 lists, so I'm hoping 2020 is the year it will finally be released!

Psychonauts 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Psychonauts which was released in 2005. The original game saw you take the role of Raz, a boy that trains to become a "psychonaut" which is basically a spy with psychic abilities. The levels in the game had you exploring people's minds and their insecurities which made the game quite unique (and probably why critics adored it).

In terms of updates for this year, Raz minifigurines have now shipped to backers that pledged at that level, Psychonauts 2 was showcased at E3 along with the first Psychonauts 2 gameplay video, Double Fine switched publishers from Starbreeze to Microsoft, and the end of development of their 3D "post-post-apocalyptic" action rogue-like called RAD resulted in staff being transferred onto the Psychonauts 2 team to aid with its development.

The game is now slated for release in 2020. Yes, I still haven't finished the original Psychonauts so I really should get around to playing it ;).
