Well 2019 was eventful and the gaming industry certainly got to see a ton of new games release but sadly did not match up to what 2018 had to offer, regardless 2019 gave us some memorable games and this is the list of the best games to be released in 2019.
Best Games of 2019 You Must Play
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
There is a lot more going on in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice than you can perceive in your first playthrough, Sekiro takes mastery of dueling while delivering one of the best narratives in video game history.
Sekiro’s dramatic undertones and violent duels contrastingly compliment each other in such a way that it feels like a journey through a fantasy that you can relive again and again just the main characters in the game itself.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is one of the best games of 2019 which will haunt you, frustrate you and still, in the end, you will look back upon the game with fond memories of how far you have progressed to come to the end.
Remedy Entertainment went all out with this horror psychedelic adventure that will have you questioning reality itself, another game with a hint of horror and some mutant-like powers. You play as Jesse Faden who becomes the head of a Governmental agency while searching for her brother.
Her quests lead her to more than what she had been searching for, but Control will often challenge you to think outside the box, as the game itself feels like it is developed with care and detail even in the smaller parts.
Control is seduction to madness at best, and this will keep you invested in Jesse Faden’s adventure as you take on the possessed people while learning new techniques and discovering new people.
Resident Evil 2
Who knew that you could successfully remake a game again which had shaken the entire gaming industry when it was released. A lot was riding on Capcom when they announced that Resident Evil 2 was going to be remade, but the fashion in which they delivered was something that no one was expecting.
As soon as you get in the game, you get a huge explosion of memories of the past when you first experienced Resident Evil 2. After that, as you progress in the game, you see that Capcom not only intentionally made the game similar, they enhanced it to their capabilities to deliver a truly horrifying and fun experience.
Resident Evil 2 brought us Claire and Leon, two of the biggest characters in the Resident Evil franchise and right from the start you are thrown into the disastrous zombie-filled city trying to save yourself. With a sequel on the way, we cannot help but wish for this remake fantasy to keep on continuing.
Untitled Goose Game
Never have I laughed myself all the way through the end of the game except while playing Untitled Goose Game, a minimalistic game which behaves as simple as it looks, the Untitled Goose Game is concise but hits all the right notes.
All you have to do is be in control of a rather obnoxious Goose as it terrorizes through the city, and creating havoc while completing tasks which make the experience even better.
The tasks seem like the best part of the game as though they seem simple, you will have to devise a clever plan in order to complete your check list and it keeps getting more and more difficult. There isn’t much to do but of everything there is, it already feels perfect in the Untitled Goose Game.
Fortnite took over the Battle Royale genre and it looked like no other game could rival it in the Battle Royale genre until Respawn Entertainment quietly released Apex Legends. Apex Legends had established itself within a week and since then has been on a upward climb.
Apex Legends is a bit different from other Battle Royale games as you get to have different characters with unique abilities that can change the outcome of a match if used properly.
Soon it was clear that the Battle Royale genre was not going to be a one-horse race and it is largely due to Apex Legend’s Release. Apex Legends has provided content creators a new avenue into the Battle Royale genre for those who do not wish to use the build techniques of Fortnite and focus purely on the battling aspect.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s announcement sent waves in the gaming industry, the Call of Duty franchise probably has been the most well known in history and the developers decided that they wanted to reboot the series and take everything back to the beginning.
What we got instead was a masterpiece that reminded us why Call of Duty is such a global phenomenon. As soon as the game was released, the internet was filled with gameplay videos and people reminiscing about how it was like just the old days.
We got to see how the team was formed with Captain Price at the helm, instead of the main game being set in a fictional middle east country with a huge uprising taking place. You are thrown into the midst of the action and with no turning back, you have to fight through and bring liberation. Unexpectedly, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a brutal game with tender moments that will enchant you and thus made its way in best games of 2019 list.
Devil May Cry 5
For those who know the Devil May Cry series, know that there is no stopping the demon killers, no matter how big or powerful the enemy is. Dante and Nero are accompanied by a new character in this new entry. Devil May Cry is the epitome of hack and slash adventure as you strive to save earth from monsters.
With each entry in the series, the developers try to bring something new and this time around we got new arm attachments for Nero that have versatile use in the battlefield.
Devil May Cry 5 is a work of purity in the hack and slash genre with the core principals of the game staying true and delivering heart pumping, electrifying moves and attacks one after the other. Devil May Cry 5 is just as stylish and over the top, as you’d expect it to be and it was a highlight in 2019.
Mortal Kombat 11
Mortal Kombat 11 had a lot of work to do as Mortal Kombat X was not received so well, but you could make out in the early glimpses that Mortal Kombat 11 was going to be special.
The story mode is beautiful as it takes you on a journey of each character trying to save Earthrealm from the demons, monsters, and gods trying to destroy it. The relationship between Sub Zero and Scorpion is probably best depicted with them finding truce among other things.
You get to see your favorite characters come back from the past and this time jump makes for an interesting narrative, Mortal Kombat 11 is a great example of how to progress a game in the future while still holding on the feeling that the original produced.
Days Gone is a compelling love story set in zombie that affected the United States of America, as you take the role of Deacon St. John as he travels the wastelands in search of his wife from whom he was separated years ago.
As you progress in the game, you learn as to how the zombie infection spread throughout the world and why humans don’t trust each other. The entire landscape has been changed as well and all of this is set in the wild broken cities of America.
Days Gone is a wonderful game produced by Sony Bend, and it delivers some of the most memorable moments of 2019. If you get the special ending, this is where the entire understanding of the game turns and is something you should look out for.
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2
The Division 2 had a ton of enhancements over its predecessor that made it unique in its own way, it was probably the biggest game of 2019 when released and quickly had everyone talking about it.
A true looter shooter which delivered at every checkpoint and step of the way, you will probably never run out of things and people to shoot at in The Division 2. A massive upgrade over The Division, this story is set in Washington DC as the entire country is set in anarchy.
You play as a Division agent and are the last line of defense for the nation, with such a massive responsibility on your shoulder, you have to systematically take down enemies and clear out areas so that peach can be brought back.
The Division 2 probably had one of the best matchmaking systems we have seen in recent times and the difficulty was set in such a way it made you want to continue even after investing hundreds of hours.
Probably the most awaited game in recent history, Death Stranding was Hideo Kojima’s first production since he left Konami, Death Stranding is something that is better experienced than trying to explain.
There are layers upon layers of information about the in-game narrative that will have to travel from coast to coast in a post-apocalyptic America, styled as United Cities of America.
You play as Sam Porter Bridges, a deliveryman and you must reconnect the cities of America with the Chiral network, Death Stranding isn’t for everyone. You will either love it or hate it, but you cannot deny that this game is certainly one of the biggest works of art in gaming and thus in our list of best games of 2019.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was the perfect way to end 2019, it featured a ton of Jedi action and was released just before the release of the upcoming Star Wars Episode IX film.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order tells the story of Cal Kestis a young Padawan who gets away during the Jedi purge and must fend off for himself by hiding and saving himself from the Empire.
This takes him on a journey through multiple planets as he is tasked with a mission to locate new force wielding children and save them before the Empire gets their hands on them. You feel as if you are always running against the clock in this epic intergalactic adventure.
These are the game we had the most fun while playing and we certainly hope you did too, let us know what you think was the best game of 2019.
We’re hoping to see another great year of gaming in 2020, and we cannot wait to check out what it has in store for us.
