Top 10 Best Video Games of 2019

  • Published on Dec 8, 2019
  • I think it’s safe to say; 2019 had no shortage of amazing games. What a way to close off the decade. Welcome to WatchMojo, and today, we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Best Video Games of 2019. For this list, we’re naming off our favorite games that consider to be the best of the best of 2019. Normally for our best of the year, we exclude any late ports, remasters or expansions of any kind. However, in the case of Resident Evil 2, we ruled that since it’s gameplay doesn’t resemble the original in any way; It will appear on this list.

    Holy moley you guys, this year was incredibly tough to bring down to just 10, there were so many games I wanted to add on here but couldn't cause the list was too full; Outer Wilds, Cadence of Hyrule, Borderlands 3, Metro Exodus, Anthem, Bloodstained ... Nah I'm just kidding about that 2nd last one. But still, let me know what your top 10 Games of the Year are.

      Also I don't understand something. Death Stranding was an honourable mention but nobody in the office liked it? So why's it a honourable mention? *scratches head* I guess to avoid bias I suppose. Also totally love the suit dude.

      MLG GAMER 23 days ago

      Totally understand. When you have a really good year of gaming, ranking is tough. This might have been one of the best years if even you guys had a tough time debating the list. Definitely a great way to end the year and the decade

      Because his fan base can be a bit.. rabid. I'm sure they also have to give credit to the production value of the game. It was a really big budget game, even if it was absolute monotonous garbage.

    Veteran of Dark Souls 1-3 and all their DLC. Sekiro is a big steaming pile of shit. I am not some pansy ass afraid to say it. Just one way to play it with no character customization, reliance on parry (you don't parry you fail), requires insane twitchy reflexes from a 12 year old on monster energy, recycled mini bosses with meaningless rewards, utterly BROKEN stealth (I simply can't take it seriously as a stealth game. I had so many laugh out loud moments because of the stupidity of the AI during stealth), they decided to use the Souls camera style in a game where you fight multiple enemies instead of the DMC style camera thus making you constantly die from enemies off screen. And the worst part. Every failure/ success feels like luck. I never feel like I'm improving after getting smacked by a boss 50 times or by a random group of mobs. It always feels like RNG. Did the boss take a break after that attack? Did he do that strong difficult to avoid attack multiple times or just once? Did I miss that parry by 5 milliseconds? Do I have only one or three off camera enemies? I swear, 90% of the people who praise Sekiro like this haven't beaten it even once.

    Wow......the fact that no one like Death Stranding in the Mojo office is just.......pitiful. Sure the game isn't for everyone but it is none than less a masterpiece. Sorry but apparently they can only handle the NONE COMPLEX games.

      @Jeremy Allen I loved the game the instant I popped that disc into my PS4. I'm not being bias because I'm a Kojima fan girl, I loved the game for it's narrative and uniqueness. This game is just like "Journey" from the PS3. The only difference is that Death Stranding has more concept and it's story driven. Journey was more simplistic but yet it was praised by critics and players being called a "Masterpiece". Death Stranding is just like Journey only 20 times bigger. 🤷🏼‍♂️ This is what I mean by Bias critics.

      I agree. Once I started playing Death Stranding I had to finish it before touching any other game, just couldn't tear myself away from it. I played offline, so I had to build and repair everything myself. Felt more rewarding that way. That last delivery was rough.

    LOL Fallen order is on the list!?!? Its buggy, unpolished and the combat and exploration feels like its just stolen from games like uncharted and god of war. Not even to mention that you only get like 10 minutes of story inbetween 4 hours of gameplay every time and with boring characters
