The year 2020 is coming tonight so got thinking what games are set in that year? The latest Angry Video Game Nerd episode (about The Legend of Zelda Mojora's Mask,) ended with a game showing called Raid 2020. Not sure if it's set in that year but it was one of those unlicensed games with the cheap light blue cartridges. Just checked out Wikipedia for stuff and found a number of games not going to list all of them so some of you can use the others....
Super Baseball 2020 Beast Wrestler Daikatana Perfect Dark Zero Saint Row 4 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 4 Turtles in Time (one stage is set in that year I recall.)
AVGN joked about reviewing Raid 2020 early in his career when he played other Color Dreams games, but I wonder if he will review it for real. (like how Street Fighter 2010 was his first review of the last decade) Could be nice to see even if he does an "old" type episode (when his videos were shorter, obviously much more of an ambitious but amateur filmmaker and as many said, more ANGRY). Well, he did upload the footage recorded for his abandoned Secret Scout episode.

Perfect Dark Zero has been on my mind recently since we entered this decade, as I didn't play it until 2017, so it's pretty fresh in my memory.
What's funny is not just how pretty futuristic everything is in the game, but that Joanna's pixie haircut with the one blond streak literally could not be any more 2005 and yet Rare thought that hairstyle was fitting for 2020.
It's pretty cool to be living in a year that sounds as futuristic as "2020", though it's also pretty fucking surreal to think of living in a year that 2005 thought would be so futuristic, like damn son, was 2005 really that long ago?
