Best New Old Games of 2019
Eligible list items are games that:
- I enjoyed playing
- I’ve never played to the end before
- weren’t released within the current year
- aren’t a remastered version of a game I’ve played to the end before
- are completed or reach a satisfying state of completion within the current year
Note: In the case that multiple titles from one franchise are eligible, only one will be allowed to be on the main list.
Note II: Why don't I have ten games listed? Shit happens.
2019 personal goals:
- Focus on games that originally released before the current generation of consoles (Xbox One, PS4, etc.).
- Finish games I started playing long ago.
2020 personal goals sneak peek:
- Play through the rest of the main Final Fantasy games I haven’t played yet (I, II, IV).
