Top 5 to 10 games of 2019

The games have to be released in 2019

In no real order yet

Resident evil 2
Remade from the ground up and its return to form to the proper 3rd person survival horror game. So much better than the direction they took starting with 4 and got worse and worse with 5 then the god awful 6

Days Gone
Apparently buggy at launch but now patched into a great post apocalypse game with characters are more indepth than you would think. Sadly attacked at launch by crappy "journalists" for having "another gruff white male lead". (I really don't they played much of it). Taking on Freaker horde is tough but rewarding.


The outer worlds
Shame it was on smaller budget but it shames what Bethesda main studio does in every way. There are bits that could be better but due to the budget, you hope they get a much bigger budget for the sequel


Plague Tale: Innocence

would be lower on my list if I had 10. great little game with unique setting. They made a stealth escort game that actually works and not awful like everyone else has done

Judgment[

Great Yakuza spin off, could of had better detective gameplay mechanics but really enjoyed it

Have not played yet
SW fallen order
Borderlands 3
Death stranding
control


I can't think of any other games to make 10

Based on my achievement tracker mine were
Resident evil 2. Loved this and need to go back to do Chris b (though it will be hard I know)

And The council. 5 part episodic game, solving a murder with people like napoleon and Washington!

Then only other games were lego movie 2 (I found this pretty poor compared to most lego games, one giant hub rather than hub and levels)

And lego Harry Potter collection (though I think that was an Xmas present)

A sad lack of games played! I will get outer worlds to play over Xmas (the joys of 5 week holiday as a student)

Oh. What’s the achievement tracker you mention ? I think that’s way I can recall what I’ve played. I don’t think played much at all from memory

Rubbish year for games for me. Only one of note :

The Division 2
Nowhere near as good as the first game. Devs started from scratch for some reason instead of building on the original and cocked everything up. Put a stupid amount of hours in but gave up once they started nerfing stuff.

Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order
Not perfect but very enjoyable Star Wars game.

Honorable mentions:
The Outer Worlds
Wreckfest

I want to play Disco Elysium and Death Stranding before I put together a definitive list, but it has been a mostly underwhelming year. Jedi: Fallen Order is my current GOTY, but I doubt it would’ve even scraped into my top 5 last year (we were spoiled in 2018).

1. Control
2. Days Gone
3. The Division 2
4. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order
5. Gears 5/Remnant From The Ashes/Borderlands 3

My top game wasn't even close. Control was by far the best thing i've played this year.

I've pretty much just played Battlefield V all year (yes it came out tail end of last year), with a minor few hours break for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

I don't think that it was overly detrimental to the game in the end but the main character was utterly dreadful. He literally was the most unimaginative stereotype of "gruff white male lead" and I am not saying this from any sort of "woke" position. It's a legitimate criticism of what is flagship game. If I'm spending countless hours on a game it would be nice to have something more than a badly acted, charisma free plank under my control. On the surface Arthur from RDR2 could be another gruff white male but he was so beautifully written and acted that he transcended the stereotype. There was nothing like this in Days Gone.
That said if any reviewers didn't give the game a balanced review for that reason then that is very sad. Yes the main character is bad but if they didn't get a kick out of clearing the hordes then they need to hang up their controllers.

Ring Fit Adventure
Baba Is You
Red Dead Redemption 2 (PC)
Phoenix Point (expected position. Might move after I've played it more)
Fire Emblem Three Houses
Trover Saves The Universe
Resident Evil 2
Jedi Fallen Order
Luigi's Mansion 3
Disco Elysium (again, this could rank higher with more play)
