The Top Ten
1 Resident Evil 2

Here's the new high standard for remakes. Capcom modernized it and made it better than the original RE2.

A really good remake of the original! Keeps so much of the original game's feel but makes it feel new at the same time!

A great remake of a great franchise.

2 Kingdom Hearts III

Kingdom Hearts was always great, and iliekpiez will be happy it's in the top 5. Anyways, it has "Captain" Jack Sparrow, enough said.

After waiting a decade for this game, I was not disappointed. It lived up to the hype.

I liked it. Had issues, but I liked it. I want more, though.

3 Gears 5
4 Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

It's actually a fun game, and it is a big surprise. But considering this was published by Electronic Arts, I was curious to see whether there was an additional paywall. For real, microtransactions ruin the fun. This is a single-player game inspired by Dark Souls, Uncharted, and God of War, which makes me very content because it's all combined into a Star Wars game.

I'm not finished with this Star Wars game yet, but the storyline, gameplay, and characters are well designed and thought out. The worlds in this game are beautiful, and the purchase of this game is so worth it for my first-time gaming computer build.

5 Devil May Cry 5

DMC5 refuses to take itself too seriously, which lets Capcom include some wacky entertainment. It's a joyride with a full arsenal of cool weapons to manhandle the demons in the flashiest way possible.

This game is one of the greatest games I have ever played.

Devil May Cry 5 looks awesome, and I mean awesome.

6 Mortal Kombat 11

I normally wouldn't vote for a fighting game to be top, but let's be real, we haven't seen many good games so far in 2019, and MK11 had a nice flow in the continuation of the franchise with amazing and brutal graphics.

I like this more than MKX. I think Mortal Kombat is the best fighting game ever made. I would put it above any other fighting game. It also has a good story.

Best game in 2019 for sure. Mortal Kombat always gets better and better, unlike the '90s movie that made a joke of it!

7 Luigi's Mansion 3

This game looks gorgeous! Honestly, this game is maybe not as good as Mario Maker 2, since that game is also AMAZING. This game is pure fun and, in my opinion, should be higher, as well as it should be higher on the top 10 games of all time.

31? This game is top 5 at least! It has great progression, amazing boss fights, clean graphics, and realistic physics.

Should be way higher. This game is really impressive.

8 Borderlands 3

This game is a revolution to behold. It brings pure insanity to strategy in an all-time awaited game. This is the game I waited for years. This game not only deserves first place but is the embodiment of first place itself.

Worth the wait. Everything a Borderlands game should be, with much more to come.

9 Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled

I'm only one day into playing it, but so far, this has massive potential to make the top spot in my best games of 2019. You heard me. It's that damn good. Just like the N. Sane Trilogy, this remake literally mirrors nearly everything that was fantastic about the original.

Better yet, there is not a single microtransaction feature in this game. You unlock stuff by actually playing the game, something that every game should have. Beenox did this series justice. Considering the fact that a company like Activision would even conceive the idea of publishing these Crash remakes in solid base form, I have nothing but mad respect for them. I've always loved Mario Kart, but even today, that series still can't hold a candle to how groundbreaking CTR has always been.

EDIT: Okay, Activision lied and ended up putting microtransactions in the game a month later. Still, they're extremely cheap (no more than $10), only for cosmetics, and don't affect the gameplay in terms of getting an advantage in races, so you're in no way forced to pay for them. These are the kind of microtransactions I can tolerate, so the game is still very solid.

10 Death Stranding

Unlike anything I've ever experienced. I wasn't doing much more than walking around for 90% of my time playing, but I was engrossed every single second. The genius of making the mundane into an unforgettable video game about loss, connection, isolation, death, and humanity is wondrous to behold.

It is a unique game that is not for everyone. I was pretty impressed with the gameplay, and the story was quite interesting. Kojima did make those four years of development worth it for this game. I love it. Just keep in mind, I can't recommend it considering its uniqueness.

The Contenders
11 Super Mario Maker 2

Why isn't this higher? This game is awesome! For one, it has a lot more things here than the original: a story mode, a new style, on/off switches, slopes, angry sun/moon, forest theme, Superball... It's all here! Also, the new song selection. And a lot more good levels than the original since more people own the Nintendo Switch. Not to mention the amazing and hilarious Yamamura's Dojo, where you get trained by a pigeon and his teenage girl assistant. Not even kidding.

One thing is you can make the Thwomps go sideways, which is amazing and works for some really good levels. Again, like the original, there are a lot of trash levels, and the online multiplayer is awful. Just hand a joy-con to a friend and stick with that. There's a lot less lag. But this game is so fun that Nintendo had to double the number of levels you can publish. Also, Arby's and Wendy's both made Mario Maker levels. Now that's something.

In conclusion, this game is fun and way better than the first! (Not that the first was bad.) There may be some bad things, but they can't distract me from this amazing game. Let's get this to the top 10!

12 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

A long-awaited return to the series that got the Call of Duty franchise into the mainstream. It's better than all three Modern Warfare games.

Best Call of Duty in years, maybe since the first Modern Warfare.

The entire series of Call of Duty made my teenage life great.

13 Metro: Exodus

The little game franchise that could... always overachieving and accomplishing atmosphere better than anything else I've ever played. They took everything up a couple of notches for this entry, and it really has no equal in immersing you in a world you both recognize and absolutely do not. It's excellent and incomparable to other shooters.

An excellent continuation and evolution of the criminally underrated Metro series.

Ray tracing is all I need to say.

14 Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

That game was phenomenal. It should be in the top 3, to be honest. I don't understand how Kingdom Hearts III, a disappointing game, is number 1.

Hidetaka Miyazaki and his team at FromSoftware finally won Game of the Year! They deserve it after Dark Souls got robbed so many times.

So severely underrated! This is made by FromSoftware, aka the makers of Dark Souls, Demon's Souls, and Bloodborne. This one will be epic.

15 Days Gone

I really liked it. For some reason, this game got a lot of hate, which it honestly doesn't deserve. Sure, it's nothing special, but it's not terrible either.

This game got a lot of hate at launch, but after the patches, it's honestly one of the best games of the year.

16 The Outer Worlds

This game is similar to Fallout but in a good way because it's barely glitchy and it runs well on my Xbox. Issues I've had while playing are just the loading screen times, which take more than a minute due to the world size. But overall, I loved The Outer Worlds. It's a game inspired by Fallout just without the bugs and performance issues. I experienced no lag at all, which is why this should've been the game you bought on Black Friday or Boxing Day. Best game of 2019.

I just started playing this game, and I can't stop thinking about it! It's like Fallout (especially Fallout 3 and Oblivion in terms of character design during dialogue), but in space! This game is AMAZING!

17 New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
18 Fire Emblem: Three Houses
19 Untitled Goose Game

This game is just incredible. The concept of the game is great. I want a second version of this, please and thank you.

Untitled Goose Game is a revelation because it lets you be a furious goose.

I love the concept. It's a really funny game. Why isn't it higher?

20 Pokemon Sword and Shield

Say what you want about it, but I really like this game!

21 Little Misfortune
22 WWE 2K20
23 Tom Clancy's The Division 2

I usually avoid games that glorify the American military complex, but this game kept me playing for months. Truly a great game that should be in the top 10.

An almost sublime experience. The game has everything good about the first Division, just better. Loved my campaign playthrough. Can't wait to go back for DLC.

24 Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey

Too bad it only sold 20,000 units since late 2018 (Japan) and early 2019 (everywhere else) compared to the original's over 3 million units. One of the most underrated remakes ever. Because of this, the Partners in Time remake might be canceled.

I spent over 150 hours leveling all three characters up to level 99.
