Personal Top 5 Games of 2019

#5. Pokémon Sword & Shield, Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & The Secret Hideout – These games tied on fifth place because they both have to be in this list without sacrificing the other four. These two games are both great additions to two successful game series: Pokémon and Atelier, and they both did a great deal of respect by being part of their respective franchises. These games, while being true to the elements of their franchises, were able to deliver more.

With Pokémon Sword and Shield being the first open-world Pokémon game is refreshing for both old and new Pokémon players. They also added a bunch of new features to the game including the Dynamaxing, Gigantamax, and Raid Battles.

Atelier Ryza, on the other hand, also offered new things to the series. The secret hideout which you can customize in and out adds to the fun in the game. It’s also the first time that the atelier series offered real-time, turn-based battle system which will keep the players on their toes. Despite these additions and changes to the franchises, players can still also enjoy the main elements of each game and still find them rewarding and enjoyable to play.

#4. Dragon Quest Builders 2 – I’ve always been a devoted Dragon Quest follower and gamer so this game just had to be on this list but that’s not the only reason as well. This game , I believe, is something every gamer would enjoy. It offers building elements, crafting, farming, adventuring, fishing, fighting, and multiplayer mode, what more could we ask for.

The Children of Hargon never stood a chance against all our perseverance and determination with this game! Players can both enjoy playing through the storyline or just simply doing and making their own things for their island. Nothing could possibly go wrong in playing this game.

#3. Ring Fit Adventure – Growing up playing video games, my family would always say I’m only exercising my fingers – well, not anymore! Ring Fit Adventure satisfies your need of gaming and your body’s need for workout. Being able to achieve goals for your game and for your health really hits a sweet spot.

This game offers challenging adventure game with exercise elements to advance. If you do not want to do that, the game also offers minigames and workout sets for your specific needs. I’m never one for going to the gym or being religious about exercising, but now I can game and stay fit at the same time!

#2. Fire Emblem: Three Houses – This game just delivered all the best for a Tactical RPG. I don’t think there is a person who played this game who will say otherwise. While being true to the elements of the Fire Emblem series, this game still pushed for more. To be able to free roam in a Fire Emblem game was a big leap especially with all the 3D graphics. The character designs are lovely as usual and story will make you move forward with the game consistently. I don’t think there is anything else to say about this game apart from it being the Best Japanese Tactical RPG of 2019 – well, to me at least!

#1. The Outer Worlds – For a person who has incredible difficulty playing FPS (First-Person Shooter) games this game got me hooked. The storyline, the gameplay, and the choices you had to make that will affect how the story goes, it all made a big impact. I couldn’t put down my controller for hours in a day because I was just enjoying the entirety of this game. The graphics a spectacular. The brightness and sharpness of the graphics affects how long you can play a game in one sitting, but this one is just pleasing to the eyes. The Xbox One X I believe renders it a lot better than other systems as well which helped me play it for hours at a time. Overall, this game was just spot-on for me.

(RGN Review of The Outer Worlds)

Honorable Mentions: Vader Immortal, My Time at Portia, Yokai Watch 4, Oninaki, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Gears 5, Kingdom Hearts III, Stranger Things 3: The Game, Grandia HD Collection, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition, Star Ocean: First Departure R.

Personal Top 5 Games of 2019

#5. Dragon Quest XI: S Echoes of an Exclusive Age – Definitive Edition – Bringing a gem from 2017 to the Nintendo Switch, with additional content and changes made, Square Enix decided to go the extra mile. The 2D pixel art mode inspired by retro JRPG games enchanted me into this title which keeps the torch alive for traditional fantasy role playing games of yester-year, refreshed.

(DF Visual Tech Analysis of DQ:XIS for Nintendo Switch)

#4. Resident Evil 2 [remake] – This game is the perfect example of how to bring a classic masterpiece into the modern age while preserving the original feel and smoothing over any outdated features or controls which haven’t aged well. Thanks to the passion and thought put in by Capcom Resident Evil has never been better.

#3. Fire Emblem: Three Houses  – The culmination of Strategy RPG game design with high quality anime story segments providing a true motivation and overall experience.

#2. Call of Duty Modern Warfare – With the flawless execution of the first cross-play Call of Duty game ever made, the 2019 release of Modern Warfare brought Xbox, PlayStation, and PC players together. Families and clans were reunited, and although the game is still not perfect it does sync all players more than before with a steady flow of free maps, solid gun-play, and stable connection.

(RGN Review of Call of Duty Modern Warfare)

#1. Super Mario Maker 2 – It’s infinite Mario. What if you could have gone back in time and told your past self that one day they’d be able to make their own Super Mario levels, let alone share them online and experience a never-ending library of community-made content? This was my favorite game of 2019 and pays a high respect to the most iconic franchise in video games history.

(Dev Demo Gameplay Footage of Super Mario Maker 2)

Honorable Mentions: Beat Saber, Sparklite, Mortal Kombat 11, Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, The Outer Worlds, Espire 1 – VR Operative.

Shout Outs: Man of Medan, OrbusVR Reborn (Updated Version).

Personal Top 5 Games of 2019

#5. Death Stranding – Hideo Kojima has done it again created a tale that is both a reflection of his life and a reflection of the world. Death Stranding will scare you, move you and make you think. Never before In my life was I scared of getting caught by the enemy as I was in this game, never before have I scanned the world for the views.

#4. Mortal Kombat 11 – Mortal Kombat is a series that has transformed itself through each iteration yet kept the roots of the original trilogy of games in tact. The characters, Lore and catchphrases have etched a permanent spot in gaming history and changed pop culture for ever. Mortal Kombat 11 caries on that tradition but cranks it up to eleven by concluding the story 25 years in the making and the signature Netherealm Gear System From Injustice 2 coupled with the Most brutal fatalities in franchise history. Mortal Kombat is a classic that is we will play for years to come.

(DJ Killzown Jones Broke the News of MK11 – 5 months ahead)

#3. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order – What happens when you take the best elements of All the Previous Star Wars Games and fuse it with Dark Souls Mechanics along with A Big living Galaxy? Star Wars Jedi Fallen order does this all while blowing your mind at every moment. Nothing much to say on this one go play this game ASAP.

#2. Call of Duty Modern Warfare – Activision and Infinity Ward knew that they had to bring Call Of Duty to the next level before the next Gen being the one of the highest selling And industry leading first person shooters and they did it. Campaign, Multiplayer And Co-op all deliver the fast pace, high octane gameplay then with the Gun Club system letting you Tweak and Tool your weapons to your liking, Modern Warfare is a true classic just like the original.

#1. Pokémon Sword & Shield – Pokémon has dominated the industry and the world for over two decades but we never had a console game until now. Sword And Shield is a water shed moment in the series and it has brought both joy and controversy with the National Pokédex scandal but that aside these games finally evolves the game one step closer to the MMORPG console version we all dreamt about. I feel just like I did 20 years ago and I still want to be the very best.

Personal Top 5 Games of 2019

#5. Borderlands 3 – I’ve always been a fan of the borderlands series and while not my favorite in the series this really didn’t disappoint me. The humor and the loot are Staples of the series and this continued with that.

#4. Control – A very underrated game in my opinion while not perfect it provided an interesting story and some solid gameplay.

#3. Resident Evil 2 [remake] – Reminded me of how amazing the series was when it started. With keeping the story the same and the overall gameplay but making much-needed tweaks and alterations this remake was amazing.

#2. The Outer Worlds – With well-written characters, interesting stories and an overall enjoyable experience obsidian reminded me that they really know how to draw me in and keep me interested in their games.

#1. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order – I’ve been waiting a long time for a solid single player Star Wars game and this hit the nail on the head. Hopefully they’ll continue with a sequel or at least use these ideas in another Star Wars game.

Honorable Mentions: Greedfall, Avicii Invector.

Personal Top 5 Games of 2019

#5. Gears 5 – This was an awesome game. The Coalition did an awesome job. The campaign was a blast and also a first for me was playing it solely on mouse and keyboard. This made me wish I could play earlier titles this way since it works perfectly. The story is the best part has me ready to take my lancer back off the wall and get down for some more multiplayer, horde, and escape. I have done a deep dive but will be playing a lot in 2020. 

#4. The Division 2 – A great experience. I played the alpha then waited until release date and played the crap out of this game beat the entire campaign in the first week and I was completely maxed ranked in less than 2 weeks. I love playing this with my buddies on PC, as well as some buddies on Xbox. I’m still playing it, the story was great, and the jump in and out of co-op was perfect. The raids I didn’t touch but there’s still time to go back since they are still dropping new content all the time.

#3. Call of Duty Modern Warfare – Wow, this is the best way to reboot a franchise. The story is jaw dropping and keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. Spec Ops is OK, but it’s not really my thing even if I had a few fun sessions. Multiplayer is king; this is the best multiplayer game I have played in all of 2019. I’m playing this on PC and Xbox, it runs stellar on both and has a ton of options. The other killer thing is the Battle Pass. I know it was copied from other games but I don’t care, for me it adds a lot of fun getting new weapon blueprints. The developer has been great with new maps or rebooted maps and they are tons of fun. The cross-progression is great so I can play on both systems and gain XP for one account. I was even able to play with RGN Authors on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation all in one squad for the first time which is a beautiful thing.

#2. Metro Exodus – All a’board the train in Russia. The game is great in an open world type format. I love the smaller worlds; there was so much to explore and so many variants. You get to play your way with whatever weapons you wanted to play with. I would have loved to play it through on new game plus with all my weapons that I earned. I haven’t done the DLC in-game yet but probably will. Also, a small detail that I love, I got my copy before it was yanked off Steam.

#1. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order – I, without a doubt, loved my time with this game. I was super stoked to play this day one. I had it all ready to launch on my PC and the graphics were awesome the gameplay made you feel like a powerful Jedi and liked that you got to learn the story as you go and got to due cool new force abilities as you went along. Also love the dual saber I want more Star Wars games like this to got me super pumped to see the Rise of Skywalker.

Honorable Mentions:

Resident Evil 2 – I had never played this title until it came out again in 2019 and it sucked me in. I loved the gameplay and jumping out of my seat every 10 seconds or so. I got all the way through one of the campaigns and got the awesome $5 DLC after I got sick of looking for ammo and this game is a blast to play through with a mini gun and rocket launcher. 

RAGE 2 – An open world ID game I loved made up of everything I enjoyed in the DOOM series. The story was OK, but the open world felt so empty. I had fun just going to outposts and collecting everything. It was also great to have a BFG 9000 in game. 

Shout Outs:

Wreckfest – This title is actually out now on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation; it’s a demo derby style racing game with full vehicle damage and driving physics. The campaign is really fun you get do do school bus racing as well as classic derby and banger racing. Multiplayer is toxic and I love it. 

Borderlands 3 – GUNS, GUNS, GUNS! I was really excited to be a vault hunter again and then was all ready to get it on PC and then Gearbox was like “IT’S EXCLUSIVE TO EPIC GAMES STORE” and I will be sharing my full thoughts on that in another article soon enough. Long story short, I bought the game on Xbox and have been having lots of fun with all the great guns. Again, the story is OK. There is still a lot of funny dialogue in the game and of course everyone’s favorite character is back Claptrap.

Need For Speed Heat – They are back! The story is here is great and has the great day racing where its closed track racing style and parts of story and night is street racing at its best and cops that are really brutal. The game looks awesome played on my Gaming PC and looks great. The feeling of drifting is the best it’s ever been in a Need For Speed game. The campaign is pretty short and has some great Need For Speed titles of the past. If you love arcade racing and customization you will love Need For Speed Heat.

Personal Top 5 Games of 2019

When it comes to gaming, 2019 was a downright incredible year. All three consoles had titles that were absolute must-haves, and there were great games up the wazoo. Some stood out, and for various reasons too. These are my top five games of 2019, in no order.

#5. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night – This game is basically a spiritual successor to the Castlevania series, Symphony of the Night in particular, designed by none other than the madman Koji Igarashi himself. It took a long time for this game to come out, but the end result is worth it. Peppered with references to Castlevania throughout but standing on its own with its own mythos and world to back it up. This game, while having some flaws, is a love letter to fans of Castlevania and Metroid, scratching an itch that many of us have been unable to satisfy until it hit shelves. It deserves accolades for keeping that familiar formula we all love but adding to it in many creative ways.

#4. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition – I am focusing on the Nintendo Switch version, as that is the one that hit last year. Critics were saying that it couldn’t be done, that the Switch was way too weak to handle this game. I think it’s safe to say those critics are eating their words now. Simply put, this is an incredible port. The fact that the entire game is present, not a single thing is out of place. Not only that? Every DLC and expansion is jam packed onto cart that is not much bigger than a standard SD card. Other than one small patch, nothing else is needed, you’re ready to go out the gate. While some textures were downgraded, true, the game still looks beautiful and is an absolute joy to play. This was a labor of love and it showed. Nintendo Switch owners owe it to themselves to pick this port up.

#3. Collection of Mana – This collection is a long time coming, it has three incredible games in one package, all of them flawlessly emulated. Of note is that this collection has what was previously known only as Seiken Densetsu 3 or “Legend of the Holy Sword 3” in Japan, now known as Trials of Mana, a game that previously never left Japan finally has an official translation. While it took over 20 years, the wait was worth it. Trials of Mana alone makes this title worth the purchase but adding Final Fantasy Adventure and Secret of Mana to the mix is like putting icing on this delicious cake. Not only that, it wets the appetite for the upcoming Trials of Mana remake that hits in April of 2020.

#2. Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age S – Definitive Edition – The latest installment in this long-running series ended up getting a Switch version sometime after the PS4 and PC release, however this is no ordinary port. This had a bucketload of features added to it that were missing in the other versions, including an entire new side quest that was previously only available on the 3DS version, which coincidentally never left Japan. Not only that? It has the fully orchestrated soundtrack arrangements which were also previously Japan exclusive. There are other various enhancements, such as having all your characters in view on the field, etc. If you love Dragon Quest and have a Nintendo Switch? This is the version to get, no questions asked.

#1. Tales of Vesperia – Definitive Edition – Though this game is technically a 7th generation title, having been released on the 360 Internationally and the PS3 in Japan only. This was a love letter from Bandai-Namco to their stalwart Tales fanbase, this was them righting an old wrong and releasing the version of Tales of Vesperia that we should’ve gotten in the first place, and not only that, releasing it on all systems to boot. Hailed as one of the best games in the series, no matter what system you own, you owe it to yourself to experience this amazing gem.

(RGN Impressions of ToV – Definitive Edition)

So in conclusion, while there were plenty of games that were worthy of a purchase last year, these five in particular stood out to me for various reasons, even if they were not the best graphically, in terms of gameplay, technical feats, etc. These games are absolute winners in my books, and deserve to be known as must-haves for their respective platforms.

Personal Top 5 Games of 2019

#5: Pokémon Shield & Sword – A controversial choice after a lot of negative press regarding the sacrifices made by GameFreak such as performance issues and a Thanos-snapped roster of Pokemon did nothing to take away the enjoyment I had with Shield. The story itself was rather short but the addition of the Raid system and a more open world in the Wild Area along with a ton of customization and an overhauled multiplayer system made this an easy choice as my #5 title. I am excited for the two DLC packs coming this year. (45+ hours)

#4: Death Stranding – As a big Hideo Kojima fan, I was drawn to this title. As a Kojima game, it once again blurs the line between video game and film with its high production values, Hollywood cast and focus on the narrative. While some were turned off by its complexity and it straying away from a more casual audience, I fell in love with the simple delivery system and the complex mechanics of weight balance, stealth, energy/equipment limits and became enthralled with Sam Porter Bridges’ journey to band the United States together again. (30 hours)

#3: The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening – While I was conflicted on putting this on the list as it qualifies as a remake, I couldn’t deny the amount of fun I had reliving my childhood on my Switch. Completely overhauled since its original 1993 release, this re-imagining of a classic game is better now than it was nearly 30 years ago. The new art style being similar to a diorama also helped give this remake a new coat of paint draw in a new audience and the attention to detail to perfecting Koholint Island was much appreciated. The addition of the dungeon builder was also a great touch and gave me that slice of Mario Maker I’ve wanted with Zelda. (25 hours)

#2: The Outer Worlds – This is the return to form I wanted from Obsidian. Takes me back to the early 2000’s playing Knights of The Old Republic and Alpha Protocol. Full of charming writing, a compelling narrative and replay value. I had a blast just finding all the companions and trying out all the different approaches, spending a good thirty hours on the endgame alone. (60 hours between consoles)

#1: Fire Emblem: Three Houses – Coming into 2019, I was excited for FETH but after spending as much time as I did with Three Houses, it blew everything else out of the water in terms of games this year. Spending a solid 90 hours playing it this year, I have gotten almost all the endings. The combination of Fire Emblem’s solid strategy gameplay and relationship/team building along with the addition of branching narratives and an explorable hub world full of things to do, it’s not hard to see why it won a fan award at last December’s VGAs or why its protagonist Byleth is coming to Super Smash Bros this year. The additional content adds more play-ability and with the knowledge of the next add-on adding a FOURTH house, I can see Byleth and the church taking up more of my time this year. (90+ hours)

Honorable Mentions:

  • Apex Legends – A great addition to a stagnating Battle Royale genre. (20 hours between consoles)
  • No Man’s Sky: BEYOND – As a fan of the original release, it was very good to see how far it has come with the big updates it has received since launch. The addition of VR was awesome. (20 hours)
  • Slay The Spire – Finally getting its official release this year, the final product is even more amazing than the game it started as in 2017. (75 hours between consoles)
  • Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order – Came with my XBOX One X, wasn’t expecting much as I am not a huge Souls-like fan. It made a fan out of me, just need to go back and finish it! (20 hours)
  • Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition – A great remake of an already amazing JRPG. Looking forward to the next title in the series. (35 hours)

Personal Top 5 Games of 2019

Sekiro – Although I completed the original Dark Souls and played a few hours of Bloodborne and Demon Souls, I was one of the few gamers upon whom the brilliance of From Software’s game design was lost. All of this changed with Sekiro. The fast, precise game-play, intelligent enemies and the engrossing, vividly realized game world combined to form an unforgettable experience. The controls are tight and responsive and the game is visually and sonically gorgeous. It is absolutely worth facing the challenge to see all of what the game has to offer.

Devil May Cry V – DMCV is the vengeful return to form that the fans and the series both deserved. DMCV captures the fluid, fast and deceptively intricate combat the series is known for while incorporating a variety of game-play styles and a dynamic roster of enemies. The increasingly intense difficulty settings and insanely challenging trophy/achievement list will keep thrill-seeking demon hunters busy for dozens or hundreds of hours. Beautiful and brutal, DMCV could very well be the best in the series and is exactly the game we have been waiting for since 2008.

The House in Fata Morgana – In a year crowded with big releases, the physical console release of the epic visual novel The House in Fata Morgana was relatively quiet. This is unfortunate, since the game makes a case for the entire genre. Waiting for players within this stylish number is a dark and gripping narrative that spans hundreds of years and rains down tragedy on its characters in copious amounts. Complementing the touching, emotionally charged story is an appropriately dramatic and beautiful soundtrack as well as gorgeous illustrations that bring the characters to life. Chock full of mystery, drama and suspenseful right up to the last scene, this is a visual novel unlike any other.

Kingdom Hearts III – KHIII finally brings the long awaited franchise to modern consoles and with great effect. New features like the transforming weapons and attractions keep combat fast while bringing fresh elements to the table and the Disney worlds are realized in brilliant detail. Indeed, the game is graphically stunning. The free update also injects the game with some much needed difficulty. While not without its flaws, KHIII delivers a polished experience while hinting at an exciting future for the series.

Divinity II (Switch Version) – Larian Studios delivers incredibly rich western style role-playing in the epic Divinity: Original Sin II. Deep turn-based combat gives players control over all manner of powers such as mind control, necromancy and shapeshifting. Intelligent enemy AI makes every fight a challenge. The massive game world hides numerous surprises, some pleasant and some much less so. The entertaining story is propped up by interesting characters with their own perspectives and motivations and player choice can massively impact the story. Divinity II is just as good as you’ve heard.

Personal Top 5 Games of 2019

#5. Genesis Alpha One – An Indie FPS with base building, genetic modification, and rogue-like aspects. Explore the universe, trade, and don’t get eaten. Oh, and try not to bring alien parasites back to your ship!

(Dev Demo Gameplay Footage of Genesis Alpha One)

#4. The Grand Tour Game – Fun little fan service game based around the popular Amazon Prime car show. The stars do voice work and it literally follows along episode by episode.

#3. Borderlands 3 – The grand daddy of loot and shoot is back with no compromises or apologies. Gear up hunter… and try not to die.

#2. The Outer Worlds – A linear RPG with top level voice acting and gameplay. Triple A story and relatable characters.

#1. Stellaris (Updated Version) – Continuing expansions and a depth of gameplay that will ear your life. The base title is from 2017 but Paradox released  expansions that radically changes the game experience.

Personal Top 5 Games of 2019

#5. Resident Evil 2 – Second best resident evil game next to resident evil 4,true survival horror is back! Not only one of the best resident evils but also 1 of the best horror games ever! 1 of the most atmospheric games I’ve ever played. You can cut the intense tension with a knife. Graphics are amazing and very detailed. Zombies have never been more bloody & disgusting. Survival horror is back !

#4. The Outer Worlds – I enjoyed Fallout 4,this is a way smaller 1 of those fallout games but in space. It has great options of dialogue and a great use of dialogue that makes your side partners feel more alive and makes them matter more unlike other games I’ve ever played. The world feels lived in and has a very cool sci fi vibe. That seems to be inspired by 60s to 80s sci fi. In this world all your actions matter and cause a reaction.

#3. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order – Before playing this game I’ve only been a fan of the 80s star wars movies,after those I stopped watching. Always appreciated star wars from afar,that is until I played this game,it made me a star wars fan again. There is so much to appreciate about this game,combat is spot on,exploration is some of the best I’ve ever seen. Locations are varied as and feel like they exist in space. Love this story and it’s great characters. Its music,the great voice acting,great atmosphere . This game makes you truly feel like a Jedi in training to Jedi master.

#2. Days Gone – Despite all the negative reviews that I truly don’t agree on. It is the best experience I’ve ever had in any zombie survival game to date. This game has a lot of heart,its a mix of resident evil,tomb raider,the walking dead,dead island/dying light.
I truly enjoyed my time with the game,from the exploration to the combat,the atmosphere. I truly was engaged and loved every second I played. Very very underrated game in my opinion.

#1. Blood and Truth – Before this, Superhot, Moss, and Astro Bot Rescue Mission were the best reasons to own PS VR (PlayStation virtual reality). I love action games and this was 1 of my first VR experiences and it blew me away put me in the thick of the action. The use of VR in this game in particular is spot on,every action is done like you’d expect in real life. It works similarly,it is one of my favorite gaming experiences of my gaming life, a game changer.
