Best Video Games of 2019 – A Year in Gaming Reviewed

With the final few heavy hitters released, it’s time to look back on games in 2019. From epic adventures in a galaxy far, far away to new adventures from familiar developers, it’s been a wonderful year for games. Let’s get into the best video games of 2019 according to […]

It’s easy to look back on 2019 and think of it as a year of flubs. From the disastrous Google Stadia launch to letdowns like Anthem and Pokemon Sword and Shield, 2019 was complicated. There are a lot of things that came up short. That being said, plenty of games blew us away. 2018 seemed hard to beat; Spider-Man alone made it a year to remember. Well, 2019 is far from a throw-away year, and five games really surprised me this year. We’ll start with the runner ups, and finish with what I think is hands down the best game of the year.

Runner ups are in no particular order. The only ranked entry is the #1 game listed as #1.

Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order

The Outer Worlds

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Super Mario Maker 2

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Considering the troubled history of Fire Emblem, it’s insane that a new game released on the Switch. The series was nearly dead, but a popular mobile game and numerous 3DS titles helped bring it back to life. It helps having a hit game on the best console of the decade, but the series constantly improves itself. With a vibrant boarding school world around its classic turn-based combat, Fire Emblem: Three Houses is the best game in the series. It’s a vibrant title with three paths to play before you’ve seen everything. With a great cast of side characters, of which you can teach extra skills and techniques, there’s no small star in this game. Everyone becomes like your family and friends. You start to really root for your team, and try to convince students you like from other houses to join you.
