I don't care if it was released this year or 10 years ago.
Give me the title of the best video game that you've played this year.


Personally, my favorite game of the year is 198X. It's a 2 hour long game but it is incredibly awesome. Trust me. If you're a 90s kid - just buy it.

At the moment, I exclusively play Borderlands 2.

I only bought it (during the Steam summer sale) around two months ago, but have already clocked in over 300 hours.

It came out in 2012, but DLC has been released over the years. This year, an Ultra HD Texture Pack (with better graphics for any resolution, but especially 4K) and story expansion pack (including new weapons, level cap, etc.) came out.

Can't wait to play the rest of the franchise. Borderlands 3 is out now, but I may wait until it's on Steam next year. Here's a cool video about it.

The only games I played this year are Fire Emblem Three Houses and Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu. Fire Emblem Three Houses has been pretty fun.

It's got to be Sekiro for me.

The parry mechanic is so much fun and that Japanese aesthetic is gorgeous. Hoping for some DLC in the future.

Just played Fallout 4 at the start of the year, so that takes the GOTY imo. (I don't know why I didn't played it sooner though)

Resident Evil 2 Remake, easily.
Best RE game, and it also made me play the original (which is a good but dated game).

I'm surprised by how popular Nier Automata is. The gameplay and story were all just passable to me. I enjoyed it, much not on a deep level. I really think 2B has a lot to do with the game's popularity XD

Haven't yet, I'll probably play it by next year (seeing how much I loved FO4) so I can have 2 Fallout games as my GOTY.

Borderlands 3 for me so far. Like, Borderlands 2 was my favorite shooter game before it, and this is BL2 but better.

Graphics are improved while mantaining their unique art style, gameplay is fantastic now and the new guns+weapon manufacturers gimmicks are great, humor is still intact, level/map/planet design is a massive step up (expanding on the lore of the previous games with old and new locations), new classes are the most fun with the best implemented skill trees yet, scaling is way lower than BL2 and even lower than TPS, tons of top notch QoL updates (your character talks and retains the slam animations from TPS, changing quests with a button, refilling ammo with another, sliding and climbing, teleporting to your vehicle instantly and to other open fast travel locations...), boss fights are amazing in comparison with previous Borderlands games (final boss could've been better though, even if is still better than BL1&BL2 final bosses, is not as good as TPS Eclipse+EOS or The Sentinel in my opinion, it felt a bit rushed), music is excellent (easily the best music in the series)...

Mostly my complains are that the story was on the weak side compared to Tales from the Borderlands and the villains are not on the same level as Handsome Jack (although I liked them both, Tyreen in particular was the better villain out of the two), so game it's a solid 9/10 for me. Hopefully the DLC is Tiny Tina/Claptastic Voyage tier like Randy said in the last PAX interview and add the missing characters from older games.

I just want to repeat myself and tell you guys to play 198X.

It did not just sparked my love for old school games again. It has thrown a whole canister of gas into my little flame and I am burning now. Feels great.

gyahahaha, game of 2019?
games right now are so incredibly bad it's actually a joke

i suppose the game i had most fun with were all just replaying old stuff

dragon age inquisition with the trespasser dlc cause i love DA and it's world is amazing (i replayed the entire franchise this year again cus da2 is underrated and good) and the story is good and the gameplay is acceptable and theres some hope for DA-4 so it's not done yet, hopefully we actually get a DA4

then i was very hyped over divinity original sin 1 with epic encounters mod on honor mode , it was prolly the best rpg experience i've had so far cause the mod makes it so much better but there were a few issues with it at some point (its not an official mod)

i mean i think those are the games i was hyped about the most this year and its my 3rd+ replay on both of them

i think Pathfinder:kingmaker qualifies as a 2019 game whch was actually good after its patches/fixes. I didn't like it much initially but they managed to salvage it , still annoyed with this game's difficulty options tho

can't name a single good online game i've played in 2019

gw2 kept getting worse to a point where it became unplayable for the first time in years

smite is the same old same old shit with horrible item/ stat scaling that ruins the fun out of the game and with melees being braindead and overlyforgiving as hell

league of legends feels outdated and crappy as hell, i want wasd

kurtzpel was horrible, lol at ppl still releasing client based peer2peer games with garbage balance and lag/desync with no content

teamfight tactics has more rng than card games do even if i still play it almost daily for a round or two , it's "fun "occasionally but for the most part its a flawed/horrid game

i mean im probably forgetting something but yeah gaming this year has been incredibly bad

lots of music -

in general 100% true but DMC5 was actually really good. off the top of my head i can't think of another really highly above average game to have come out this year though, and especially western games are one piece of garbage after another

and the reason DMC5 was good is its basically a 2005 game with modern graphics lol

Among those released this year, I'm going with Resident Evil 2: REmake. It was my GotY back when it was released and still is now. Just an excellent example of what a remake should be.

Including everything I played this year, easily The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

I've played lots of black ops 4, recently started to play league and casually played some other games.

However, my GOTY that i play every year is still Dark Souls 3.

I'll be surprised if it's not going to be Doom Eternal. Otherwise, uhm, maybe Minecraft? I haven't played all that much that managed to greatly impress me this year so far, but Minecraft always delivers year after year.

So far Sekiro. I feel 2019 is weak compare to 2018.

Bloodborne is definitely still better than Sekiro.

I like metroidvanias but Bloodstained looks kinda weeb'ish to me. The protagonist is a female wearing a short skirt... same reason I don't play Nier Automata.
Fan servicing is an off switch for me...

That's a shame, because I thought it's almost as good as Symphony of the Night or Aria of Sorrow and would really recommend it to any Metroidvania fan.

But the cute short skirted female protagonist just doesn't work... How do I take such a game seriously.

For games released this year it is Sekiro. To me it's a perfect combination of things I love - a historical Japan setting and the gameplay of the Souls series - and it brings a lot of innovation into the Souls formula which I liked.

At the moment though I am playing Breath of the Wild for the first time and it definitely has one of the best (if not the best) open worlds I have seen. There are so many cleverly hidden secrets, so much freedom in approaching any task, I love it. I still haven't finished it but I have a feeling it might become one of my favourite games of all time.

eh miriam is like a 2/10 on the weaboo factor scale. i don't feel strongly about her design either way so once i started playing that kind of thing wasn't mentally at the forefront for me anyway.

honestly though ritual of the night was a bit of a disappointment for me, there's literally only 1 really above averagely good song in the game, a lot of it is rough around the edges/buggy, just didn't feel as clean as it should. still a fun game but it feels like the kind of game that needs 1 or 2 more entries in the series before it actually gets good.

I just want a good metroidvania. Besides Ori and Hollow Knight I don't think there's any good ones out there. Haven't played Axiom Verge though.

Death's Gambit was a hype for me but reviews say it's disappointing. Devs are gonna release a DLC free massive update/rework soon, so I'll give it a shot then.

Blasphemous was also a hype for me, it came out a few days ago and people are not really gushing about it. Lots of reviews say the game has a lot of flaws.

Kinda sad. Guess I'll just have to keep on waiting.

At least it's nice to know Ori and Hollow Knight are getting sequels.


P.S. Nice profile picture. It's ironic that metroidvania is one of my favorite genres yet I haven't played Castlevania: SotN or Metroid... (no console). I know Symphony of the Night was released on PS4 recently. I don't have a PS4 but I'm gonna buy it one day for sure so will try the game then.

i think i felt at first that i liked more the world design in dark souls/ bloodborne, maybe because i like more the Medieval architecture and taste, i still do.
even so, sekiro has it's own taste and atmosphere, and the gameplay is really really great.

Well I prefer DS2 the most because it's more strategic/slow/methodical and Sekiro is more DS3 than DS2. I have strong feelings that I won't like it because of that.

I didn't like the fast combat of DS3.

Pokemon Crystal Kaizo and FFV. FFV was my introduction into FF and it is one of my favorite games of all time (on a side note I am currently debating if I should play FFIVor FFVI. Both look really good and I want to play one more of the FF gmes before 7 comes out in a couple months) and crystal kaizo, the pokemon game that makes dark souls look easy. Enough said.

oddly enough i haven't played 6 and have played 4 but i would probably recommend 6. strong contender for best piece of video game music of all time is in it and also has some of the best characters in the series. 4 is great too though so you can't really go wrong.
