2019 was a great year for video games despite what some people might say. This is probably the first year for a while that I truly enjoyed everything I played and felt like I got my gaming groove back. Before getting into my actual list I have a couple of honourable mentions:
If I had of played The Messenger in 2018, it would have been my Game of the Year. The Messenger is truly a fantastic experience and one of the greatest games I've played this decade. I cannot understate how enamoured I was with this title, everything was perfect. A masterpiece of video games.
I'm a pretty casual Persona fan, I played and loved 4 but missed the hype of 5. I finally played it in 2019 and turns out it's one of my favourite games. The gameplay is much refined compared to previous entries and the story and cast of characters is my favourite. I'm sure it's been said countless times before but this is an amazing experience.
Tekken continues to be the king of fighting games for me. I've never had more fun with a fighting game than Tekken 7, and 2019 was no different with a bunch of new characters and balance patches. Without a doubt this will continue on into 2020 and beyond, and as always I can't wait to play more.
And now on to the games of 2019!
