In this very order, this is my number 1 game I fully enjoy is: Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order! And follow by:
Before the year is done, I should start talking about the games I played this year, and after taking a look back, I can say I wasn't disappointed at all. Below, you can see my list of top games that I played in 2019.
- Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
- A Plague Tale: Innocence
- Death Stranding
- Mortal Kombat 11
- Resident Evil 2 Remake
- Pokemon Sword
- Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age: Definitive Edition
- Gears 5
- Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
To start things off, Star War Jedi: Fallen Order was my favorite game of the year. Ever since I set my eyes on the game for the first time at E3 2019, I was blown away by its visuals and gameplay. But most of all, what excited me the most was that it was single-player experience I have been waiting for, Respawn really delivered!
But enough of me talking about Fallen Order. Control was another game that almost made my number 1 spot., Made by Remedy Entertainment, they rarely disappoint with how they make their games look and feel, and Control was indeed a fun game to dive into. But what really made it exciting for me was the protagonist: Jesse has supernatural powers like Telekinesis and levitation, which I'm always fascinated with in media. Control was actually similar to SyFy channel tv series called Warehouse 13, which Control gets a lot of bonus points for, lol.
A Plague Tale: Innocence. Now that was an unexpected indie game that I didn't think would get my attention. It's a great indie game, and the focus on using Rats in its story and gameplay. It makes the game interesting mainly for the fact that they act like Piranha fish on land. Scary, I know.
Moving on to Death Stranding, it definitely isn't like anything from the Metal Gear Solid series, but it's still a fresh take for an open world game. In my opinion, Death Stranding is alright in my book.
I love fighting games, and Mortal Kombat 11 took the genre to the next level. Every day, the game just keeps getting me playing it, with all its new events and updates. It's my favorite fighting games of 2019.
I have played the Resident Evil series for as long as I can remember, and the recent remake for Resident Evil 2 is everything I hoped it would be. Designed with the standards of modern games, Resident Evil 2 Remake was a very well made remake of the classic survival horror game, and now, it feels like Capcom is back on top.
For me, Pokemon Sword/Shield wasn't exactly what I had in mind for a Pokemon game that I expected. Yet, I still enjoyed it a lot, and I see it as a great game from 2019.
Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age: Definitive Edition is the only recent game in the Dragon Quest franchise that I played in a long time, and this one didn't disappoint me. It's a great RPG and one of my favorites this year.
Playing Gear 5 on PC was so good. I was impressed in terms of story and how it managed to continue were Gears of War 4 left off. I'm glad that it did well, because it's the only MS game I played 2019 and I want to see where the story goes from here.
And finally, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. To me, it was so much fun to play. I like the combat system in Sekiro so much, and it essentially lives up to the "die twice" name with its respawn system. "die twice system", letting you pick up from where you let off after a death. It feels very much in line with the gameplay loop from the Souls games, which I really enjoyed.
That's it for my Game of the Year picks, everyone. I played and enjoyed these top 10 games so much, and hope you all enjoyed reading this blog. See you, in 2020!
