The Top Ten Best Video Games of 2019

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. Like for real, microtransactions ruin the fun. This is a singleplayer game inspired by Dark Souls, Uncharted and God of War which makes me a lot content because it's all combined to a Star Wars Game.

First free to play EA game.
ReSPeCT

A brilliant,quality game.

I LOVE THIS GAME!

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 thr Original! Keeps so much of the original games feel but makes it feel so new at the same time!

This game should be number 2 not 6, it's the best horror game ever! - CatLeena14

I great remake of a great franchise.

Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled

Good game, just really sneaky that they decided to add micro transactions into the game

Hey plumber boy mustache man you worst nightmare is back again
This game is addicting the controls are amazing
The graphics got an upgrade
This game is like three games combined
Ctr cnk and a little bit of
The online is chaos these guy will show no mercy
There is also more stuff to come
The only problem is the coins

I'm only one day into playing it but so far, this has massive potential to make my 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 so fantastic about the OG. Better yet, there is not a single microtransaction feature in this game. You unlock stuff by actually playing the damn game, something that every game SHOULD have. Beenox did this serious justice, and 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 ...more - Mcgillacuddy

Even though the microtransactions suck, this is still a great game. - RadioHead03

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

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

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. - RogerMcBaloney

Should be higher. Great game. Can remember when people thought the trailer was a Bloodborne 2 trailer. - RaidenRain

My favourite youtuber beast boy shub plays it and I love it and I like resident evil 2 because bbs beast boy shub had played it and I love it alsoo

Mortal Kombat 11

I normally wouldn't vote for a fighting game to be top, but, let's be realists, we haven't seen many good games so far in 2019, and mk11 had a nice flow in the continuation of the franchise and, well amazing and brutal graphics.

Best Game in 2019 for sure. Mortal Kombat always get better and better unlike! the 90's movie who made a Joke on them!

This game is cool but there will never be a mk game as mk 2011. This game has a poor roster and unnecessary Dlc characters. I rate this game 6.8/10 - Sabbath

I really like this game

Devil May Cry 5

this was a very good game they just put all the stories together and made it better - reappro

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

Just got the demo and it looks cool.Now I'm hyped for the real one. - DarkBoi-X

My favourite - DarkBoi-X

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 notches for this entry and it really has no equal in immersing you in a world you both recognize and absolutely do not. Its excellent and incomparable to other shooters.

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

Who hated Metro 2033? Nobody, so why hate this. The devs will not let us down. - TriggerTrashKid

Look what happened to Fallout 76. Everyone thought Bethesda wouldn't let us down - venomouskillingmachine

This game was really good! - CatLeena14

Kingdom Hearts III

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

I'm going to be completely unbiased for this review of the game, because I myself am a massive fan of this series but I am also quite unforgiving if a game doesn't bring the goods. To be very honest, this game was a huge disappointment, and for a lot of reasons, but I'll just sum up the cons of the game. The story lacks any impact or consistency and the entirety of the game just felt like it was pandering to Disney fandom instead of the Kingdom Hearts fandom, which also includes the complete lack of Final Fantasy characters besides moogles and a cactuar. The game is ridiculously easy and way too forgiving, which also includes overpowered abilities and the lack of critical mode. Once you beat the story, there's so little left to do in the game. There's only one optional boss and no colosseum. All there really is left to do is take photos of lucky emblems and other crap for special items from moogles.

KH2 is still superior to this game. Don't get me wrong, there is fun to be had ...more - Mcgillacuddy

I am very surprised this is number one. This game was kinda disappointing. - RogerMcBaloney

I have pre ordered it already and since I love the series, hopefully it can be my favourite video games too. - iliekpiez

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 whilst playing was just the Loading Screen times which take more than a minute due to world size. But overall I loved Outerworlds, it's a game inspired by Fallout just without the bugs and having to run in with 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 in 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! - HexBolt0505

Way better than Fallout. It's sad that the game didn't get much attention. Very underrated. If you like Fallout New Vegas, definitely give this game a try. - RogerMcBaloney

I've recently got this game think "This is just a stupid RPG Game" But wow.I was surprised by this game, It got basically everything you want in a Shooting and Adventure Game

Astral Chain

This game looks cool.

Jojo stands

The Contenders

Death Stranding

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 4 years of development worth it for this game. I love it. Just be in mind, I can't recommend it considering it's uniqueness.

One of a kind game. Beautifully done and interesting plot. Not overly complicated but the storytelling really makes it the experience of the year. Looking forward to what else Kojima comes out with after this one.

Unlike anything I've ever experienced. I wasnt 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.

This game will be one of a kind. - CatLeena14

Luigi's Mansion 3

This game looks gorgeous! Honestly, this game is maybe not as good as Mario maker 2, since that game, also is 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! This game has great progression, amazing boss fights, clean graphics, and realistic physics.

This game looks amazing, and might be my favorite game that isn't a mario maker of 2019. Dark moon was one of my most nostalgic game, and unlike other games of my childhood, this game still is one of my FGOATs, so if they manage to take what's great about this game and expend upon it by also using what makes the first game good, it would be an amazing game, for Dark Moon fans like me, and the fans of the first game. - Eclipsmon

I'm so hyped for this game! (Despite not owning a Switch...)

Borderlands 3

This game is a revolution to behold. It brings pure insanity to strategy to an all time awaited game. This is the game I waited for years over. 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.

Got it when it came out.

nice game

Need for Speed Heat

A wannabe Forza Horizon 4 in gameplay terms. It isn't bad or anything, I just wanted that out of the way.

EA improved on the graphics, and added more than 120 vehicles this time around. What is shocking is that NFS Heat is actually pretty polished and you do not have to pay to get an edge over other players. Yes, an EA game that ISN'T Pay-to-Win. EA is finally learning something from the Battlefront II debacle.

Also, the Latino stereotypes are literally EVERYWHERE in this game. And the music, all Latino. No traditional rock, no old school/newer Hip-Hop...Just stuff from Latino artists. I kinda get it, because its supposed to take place in a psuedo-Miami, Florida. It still kinda bugs me, but it isn't enough to make me hate the game, I can just turn off the music and pull out Spotify.

Pretty good Need for Speed game for what its worth though. - Inny74

Vroom vroom

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. - RogerMcBaloney

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

this was a good game most people would play it because it had zombies. - reappro

seems fun

Gears 5

I was going to add this, but people are being negative about Gears of War 5. Well, I hope its as good as its predecessor. - TriggerTrashKid

I might play it

Super Mario Maker 2

It's fun, enjoyable and it plays well as a party game. Like it's Mario for crying out loud. Honestly, at times I do get frustrated with the levels people created which makes me rarely playing the game. Overall it is a game you should buy if you are a Mario fan.

If anyone thinks this is for babies, check out Mario Early Learning Preschool, this actually exists. That was made in the 90s.

Bloody brilliant! Although bad multiplayer... But who cares if everything else is 9.5/10

Everything that MM1 was, but so much cooler, and I've played both!

Grid

A very great arcade racer going back to its roots. - Inny74

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order

The best super hero game using a huge roster we may get for a long long time...

This game is actually going to be a thing? I've always wanted to get the original 2 when I was younger on the Wii. - B1ueNew

Far Cry New Dawn

And I see the sun rise on a grateful universe. - TriggerTrashKid

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

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

Too bad it only sold 20000 units since late 2018(Japan) and early 2019(Everywhere else) compared to the original of over 3 million units. One of the most underrated remakes ever. Because of this, the Partners in Time remake might be cancelled.

This game will always be amazing no matter what system it is on - EvanWellens

Amazing game should be higher

Pokemon Sword and Shield

I don't know exactly how it will turn out, but I think it's gonna be the best pokemon games yet. I don't think pokemon will reach its ultimate potential with this game, like odyssey did for Mario, Star Allies did for Kirby or Breath of the Wild did for Zelda, but at the end of the day, any pokemon game will at least be great. - Eclipsmon

IT IS I! MR. 2020! now that the game is out and I have beat it and have a level 100 squad I can calmly say that HOLY HELIX THIS GAME IS AMAZING!

Problily (Sorry of bad spelling) the best Pokemon for new players

Dude it’s not even out yet but if it was out it would be like the best Pokemon game ever maybe. My prediction.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Best game on the switch,and of the year(Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is still better),it's basically Persona 5 but more polished and with a better story, game play and characters

Great game for the switch

Best game ever.

Super excited for this game!

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe

This game is okay. You can have fun with it, and I'm one of the only people that will say every NSMB is better than 3 and world, but not as good as the 6 golden coins and this game is the best NSMB so therefore the 2nd best 2d Mario, which is good, but doesn't mean a lot. Sadly, this game cost too much for what it is. - Eclipsmon

It has less content than the original but it is called del8xe cause there are every Luigi U levels

Just an updated version of the original New Super Mario Bros. U - TriggerTrashKid

I love the Mario franchise and this is definitely worth it

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

A long-awaited return to the series that got the Call of Duty franchise into the mainstream. And it's better than all 3 Modern Warfare games. - Yeoss

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

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

Amazing this game is the worlds best

Samurai Shodown

Haohmaru is sexy
so is alpharad
subscribe to the slashmaster universe

Tom Clancy's The Division 2

I usually avoid the 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 is everything good about the first Division...just better. Loved my campaign playthrough...can't wait to go back for DLC.

The Division was spectacular, and this is gonna be even greater. - TriggerTrashKid

My Friend Pedro

This game changed my life. I had never seen a banana before this game and then I saw the cover. This banana went through so much just to see his Mexican friend Pedro. This actually brought tears to my eyes and I was crying for 3 nights and couldn't stop. So moving deserves a higher place on this list.

It looks fun so l love and I do not play video games but it looks cool so I like it

Stupid game - CatLeena14

banana

Untitled Goose Game

it's the best game because of the comedic yet dark approach that it takes to the world

This game is just incredible. The concept of the game is great I want a 2nd version of this please and thank you.

Untitled Goose Game is a revelation because it lets you be a furious goose. - kanetheundertaker25

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

FIFA 20

The game is entertaining

AWESOME best game ever

FUN

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

This game isn't my priority in term of what I want to buy, it looks like a really good (and cute) game. - Eclipsmon

I’m having really fun with this game. Probably one of the best Nintendo remakes. - RadioHead03

I've played this so much it's so great

good

MediEvil
Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age
A Plague Tale: Innocence

The story of this game is intriguing, as is the acting and plot delivery. - Yeoss

Wonderfully done. Details and look of the game are amazing. The voice acting is surprisingly enjoyable. Game mechanics are fun and not overly complicated. Highly recommend.

Well I feel like its kinda challenging and lot of mysteries in the way but overall 10-10 for sure

A unique experience that was much greater than the sum of its game mechanics...an emotional cracker.

NBA 2K20

2k always the best. Great graphics and a better storyline than 2k19, which was also amazing. I also like the new additions in modes as well

Yo this is cool game yeah it is

That would be so fun

basket

Team Sonic Racing

How has nobody else voted this up? They took more time to work on it. Clearly SEGA has learned from releasing unfinished games (they didn't repeat what happened with 06 and Boom with this game, did they? No! )

heck, I'd buy seven of these no joke

Let's go boi

Tetris 99

Best battle royale game ever

Not a fan of Tetris, but this is a great idea. - Eclipsmon

Better than Fortnite - Oliversky

Fortnite chapter three

Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville

They still make Plants vs. Zombies games? ~ Userguy44

Yep. this games was good not great. gw2 and gw1 were better though-_-

Rage 2

The most straight up fun zany open world shooter of the year. If you want realism there Call of Duty...if you want crazy there's Rage 2.

I was excited for this game, especially considering the fact that it's from id Software and Avalanche, and while the shooter mechanics are a blast, the rest of the game just feels empty and repetitive. Not a bad game but definitely disappointing considering the hype I had for it. - Mcgillacuddy

Good gunplay. - Yeoss

Blair Witch

Great box art. - myusernameisthis

Box art is pretty rad. - TheHabsFan

Loving the box art

Control

Underrated. The game seems to have slipped people's radars. - RogerMcBaloney

Good graphics and mechanics. - Yeoss

Dead or Alive 6
Apex Legends

Apex is just a sad remake of Fortnite trying to get peeps off fortnite so they can have all the glore but no I'm loyal 2 fortnite Apex is 110% trash

Apex>fortnite
fortnite ruins childhoods, the fanbase is toxic and blink 182 are idiots.

NO Actually Fortnite copied apex first >:( and fortnite ruins children's behaviors and it dosen't have good graphics meanwhile apex have 10/10 graphics so shut up fortnite lovers let us have fun!

A much better choice than fortnite in gameplay but lacks a variety in shotguns

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

I love this game so much!

BEST GAME OF THE UNIVERSE

dude best

Madden NFL 20

Tom jackson the goat

Very fun addicting

Number one

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020

How is this not in the Top 10?

Remnant: From the Ashes
Baba is You

It's a fabulous game that makes you think outside the box. If you are interested in coding, this is a game for you.

ROSE IS RED
VIOLET IS BLUE
FLAG IS WIN
BABA IS YOU

Age of Wonders: Planetfall
Robot Wants It All

This reawakens tons of childhood memories. What once started off as a fun and charming flash game series consisting of four games, has now been made into ONE game that even includes two other games in this "Robot Wants" series. - darthvadern
