Most Anticipated Video Games of 2019

At the time of making this we will have to wait for 2 more months until 2019 comes, but these games have gained some attention and will most likely blow up in the next year.

The Top Ten

1 Cyberpunk 2077

Made by the same people who made the witcher 3, enough said. - Not_A_Weeaboo

More like Spider-Punk when you are a Spider-Man fan and hear it for the first time.
Spider-Punk 2099? - TriggerTrashKid

It looks amazing! - TriggerTrashKid

I’m so excited for this game! It’s got me hyped! - RadioHead03

2 Kingdom Hearts III

This game is the finale of the "Dark seeker saga". 17 years has been building up for this. Why isn't it number 1!? Why!?

Finally, about time. I love Kingdom Hearts. - iliekpiez

Why isn't this #1? I'm genuinely surprised!

Came out already - bobthehallwayman

3 Devil May Cry 5

No more edgy Dante - Not_A_Weeaboo

3 Characters and they all look so fun

DMC is a magician by the way... - TriggerTrashKid

This is gonna be good! - RadioHead03

4 Metroid Prime 4

This better come out in 2019 along with Bayonetta 3

No other game can top Metroid Prime 4 for 2019

Can't wait for this game, hope it release in 2019.

And development restarted - hugh201

5 The Last of Us Part II

I can't think for the life of me why this isn't number 1. The first game is still the best ever made

That's primarily for two reasons;
1. Metroid Prime (the game that is currently #1 as of writing this reply) hasn't had a new console game for more than 10 years.
2. Many feel as though this is an unnecessary cash-grab sequel instead of one the franchise needs. - MasonOcker

Likely to be the best game ever made

Come on, no one sane is left, it's The Last Of Us! - TriggerTrashKid

Amazing Game! Can't wait - Stasz1984

6 Metro Exodus

Very underrated franchise - ToddHoward

It seems amazing - TriggerTrashKid

Metro:2033 is a very well known post-apocalyptic game.The series had a sequel known as Metro:Last light and now another sequel.Now I don't know much about the Metro series but it is very well known so a sequel would be anticipated. - DarkBoi-X

I’m really interested in this game. - RadioHead03

7 Animal Crossing Switch

So excited honestly. The nostalgia is real.

Please Nintendo, don't take too many risks. This is a franchise you can't mess up. - DLG

I like that they are (finally) taking risks. It's better than having a console with no games to play on it. - DMacLean15

I've put so many hours into new leaf. I can't wait to see what the switch version will have! - Pmacaroon

God I can't wait for this game! This is gonna be amazing! 😍 - ExplodedGaming

8 Pokemon 2019

If it is like Let's Go! It will be crap. - TriggerTrashKid

I'll be the best that there ever was. - TriggerTrashKid

I'm gonna play it all day every day!

It does not need to be open world to be good. If it is a normal Pokemon Game, I’m happy. I liked let’s go, just the timing was absolutely terrible, because I got to the Elite Four, and then Smash Ultimate came out. This time, nothing’s stopping me from completing Gen 8. I am ok with whatever they give us, but some things I would like are, a decent postgame, Looker Missions in X and Y were fun, but nobody remembers they exist. Team Rainbow Rocket was good too, but a Battle Frontier would be even better. Although, there is one thing I know everyone wants. A second region.

9 Bayonetta 3

Bayonetta is my favourite game, and Bayonetta 2 is also one of my favourites. I am very excited for this game, hopefully will be maybe even better than the original and maybe the second one too - iliekpiez

If you want to know how to talk to a lady, ask your mom. - Smash64

Badass Female Protagonist. Enough said. - TriggerTrashKid

Bayo, Bayo, Bayonetta...3 - TriggerTrashKid

10 Yoshi

Got delayed hopefully it's a cool game - B1ueNew

Yoshi's Crafted World is another game that I'm way more hyped about than Smash, to be honest I'm more hyped about this than Super Mario Party as well, and THAT game made me super hyped! - darthvadern

Hopefully he pays taxes for the fist time... - Maddox121

Didn’t Yoshi commit tax fraud last year? - RadioHead03

The Newcomers

? Caste Heaven
? Alice Closet

The Contenders

11 The Elder Scrolls VI

Nah it's gonna get delayed to 2055 because they are too busy making Fallout 666, Fallout 76 2, Skyrim: Toaster Edition, Skyrim: Ouya Edition, Skyrim: Minecraft Edition, Skyrim: Shrek Edition, Skyrim: Illuminati Edition, Skyrim: Boku No Pico Edition, Skyrim: Gameboy Edition, Skyrim: Waluigi Edition and Skyrim: Thanos Edition.

Skyrim: Minecraft Edition sorta exist already as there is a Skyrim Mash up Pack in Minecraft that you can purchase as DLC. - Tyoshi

Umm...I don't think this counts. Wait two years, THEN let it top the list. - tonyb500

Bethesda is an absolute mess right now after Fallout 76 flopped so I don't know how I feel about this. - DMacLean15

I have hopes since 76 was meant more as a placeholder until the next Fallout game, kind of like how the most recent EDO is a placeholder for Elder Scrolls VI. - Stalin

This should be good. I loved Skyrim, and Oblivion. - RadioHead03

12 Tom Clancy's the Division 2

Well if this game is coming out soon and just like every other Tom Clancy game it looks cool. - DarkBoi-X

A post apocalyptic Tom Clancy game? Yes please. - RadioHead03

Yes I'm sort of looking forward to this game. - B1ueNew

Post-Apocalyptic, 'enough said. - TriggerTrashKid

13 Fire Emblem: Three Houses

One of Nintendo's most well known RPG series is having a sequel Fire Emblem:Three Houses. - DarkBoi-X

Looks almost as good as Awakening.

hell yes

14 Resident Evil 2

If the trailer is anything to go by, this is going to be a wonderful remaster/remake. They did a fab job with remastering the original Resident Evil, and they really seem to be putting their all into this one. Can't wait!

Aren't there enough of these? Lol. - DMacLean15

The demo is AMAZING!

15 Mortal Kombat 11

Smash bros is better... - Fat_Turtle_Gamez

A family friendly Nintendo game to a gory, mature fighting game, yeah... - Not_A_Weeaboo

The trailer looks great, but the music does not suit mortal kombat at all, but it looks amazing - ToddHoward

The blood and gore in the trailer killed me. - TriggerTrashKid

He had dB ge

16 Halo Infinite

I hope 343 realizes the problem with Halo 5 wasn't the mere lack of Chief in missions, but the way Locke AND CHIEF were fundamentally written. Having Chief in every mission doesn't automatically make it good, just look at Halo 2, regarded by some as the best campaign in the series (though I slightly disagree).
Put in awesome character building, breathtaking fight scenes, the best of both art styles, open level designs, and an incredible villian, and Halo Infinite has the chance to be the best in the series, no joke.

Make Halo great again!

Bungie Halo game where the best and 343 may have brought that original halo vibe into halo infinite and if it has and if the game gets 10 on Metarcritic then I would jump into the air and sing the Halo theme song.

Please 343. at least a good multiplayer. hopefully a good campaign. - peepsmith

17 Luigi's Mansion 3

Was there ever a Luigi's Mansion 2 though? Dark Moon was kind of it's own thing and they remade the original. - DMacLean15

An Actual Sequel this time as I don't count dark moon as a sequel - MaximanDaBeast

We don't have much footage of this game, but with what we do have... it looks phenomenal! - Marxcute19

Actually, knowing Nintendo, as with Yoshi's Crafted World and Metroid Prime 4, they'll probably delay this one, too. - Marxcute19

Enjoyed the previous two thoroughly. though why is every hating on dark moon. that game was great.

18 Streets of Rage 4

YES! I knew this would be on the list. This is going to be an excellent comeback to one of the greatest beat em up series ever! - Brazencoronet17

19 Wasteland 3
20 Yoshi's Crafted World

Played the demo. It looks like it’s gonna be a great game. - RadioHead03

21 Doom Eternal

Hell on earth baby. - Not_A_Weeaboo

I'm taking this as a seal of hype. - jdramirez

Looks awesome - ToddHoward

22 Session
23 Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled

I'm honestly not really exited for this, if the future of crash bandicoot is just remakes and not new games then what's the damn point

Expected to be a contender to Mario Kart. Hope it lives up to the expectations. - TriggerTrashKid

Never played the original CTR but I'm excited for it to come out so I can try it.

Dear Activision, please make a new crash bandicoot game that isn't a remake for once, thanks.

25 Death Stranding
26 Ghost of Tsushima
27 Jump Force

I don't Know How This isn't Top 20 But Ehhh I Get It Because Not a lot Of People Watch Anime. And If They Do They don't Watch All Of It And They Problaby Only Watch Basic Anime That Everyone Knows Pretty Much...Even People That don't Watch Anime.

Example Is Dragon Ball Z/Super (Goku or Vegeta), One Piece (Luffy or Zoro), Bleach (Ichigo), Naruto (Naruto, Sasuke or Sakura).

I am so hyped for this.


28 Far Cry: New Dawn

And I watch the sun rise on a grateful universe..
Marvel reference. - TriggerTrashKid

29 Outer Worlds

Made by the same people who made the Fallout, enough said.

Is it Bethesda? If it is, please don't screw this one. - TriggerTrashKid

Space New Vegas

30 Deltarune

The demo was amazing, so it's obvious the full game will be even better.

Deltarune might not even come out next year

31 Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story DX

I have never played the original, but this one looks great! I can't wait to get it - darthvadern

I hate Bowser... - TriggerTrashKid

Looks good but I'm kind of confused; can't you already play DS games on the 3DS? - Extractinator04

Yes, using backwards-compatibility, similar to how Xbox One has remasters of games it also has on its backwards-compatibility system. - POWERStarz2004

32 Sekiro: Shadows Die Twicw

I’m pretty excited for this game. It’s made by From Software, the makers of Dark Souls. - RadioHead03

33 Madden 20

I hope this is good

In a few years, and you are playing maden, someone will walk in and think you are actually watching the superbowl in the spring. Keep it coming! - EchoX0

Trash - iliekpiez

Ready for this, but make some improvements EA

34 Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3

This game was my childhood.

35 Team Sonic Racing

Unlike the previous Sonic Racing games, this one focuses on teamwork, which IS the main focus on many Sonic games. Even if you don't come first place, if your team did great work, you'll still win. Can't wait for this game.

Since it got a delay, it should be good. - RadioHead03

Educational can teaches control

Hopefully it's better than Sickelodeon Kart Racers - Maddox121

36 Super Mario Maker 2

Honestly not really. I kinda think this isn't going to be very good

Forget link's awakening and kingdom hears and all that! this is THE game I wanted since the switch was announced, and we're finally getting it.

This. - Radiumus

37 System Shock 3
38 WWE 2K20

Probably gonna suck, like they all have since 2K17, and possibly even 2K15 - MasonOcker

I hate this series. - RadioHead03

More Garbage. T_T - TriggerTrashKid

39 The Avengers Project
40 Final Fantasy VII

The long awaited remake

Wha? - Thisisamerica

44 Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order

Not on PS4 = Me no play this. - B1ueNew

Wow, didn’t expect this game to be a Switch exclusive. It looks good. Only flaw is that it looks like a mobile game. I hope they improve the graphics. - RadioHead03

45 Final Fantasy X-3

The trailer for this looked awesome - RichHomelessGreedyMan
