Opinion piece

I have scored the games according to their looks, replayability, graphics, gameplay and story and this is my final list. I do hope that some of you share my opinions, but also that you have your own top ten games.

10. Control

Control one of the best action-adventure video games I have played that was developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by 505 Games.

The game revolves around the Federal Bureau of Control, a secret U.S. government agency tasked with containing and studying phenomena which violate the laws of reality.

The main protagonist is a female called Jesse Faden. Jesse works with other agents on discovering various secrets held by the Bureau.

Mind you the version I played was bought on Epic Store.

9. The Outer Worlds

The Outer Worlds is an action role-playing game developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Private Division. This game gives me super cool Fall Out vibes and I had so much fun playing it. It’s worth the wait for it’s 2020 release to steam, tho, as Epic Games Store is still not optimized.

The game was released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows on October 25, 2019, with a Nintendo Switch version to be released in 2020. Mind you the version I played was bought on Epic Store. The game has some small bugs, hence it is this low.

You have awakened on a ship lost in transit, bound for the furthest edge of the galaxy. You awakened only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy the Halcyon colony. As you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter various factions, all vying for power, the character you decide to become will determine how this player-driven story unfolds. In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable.

8. Apex Legends

So EA made some good games this year. Unlike what they are telling us that all games need to cost more, this game comes for free.

Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale game developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts. It was released for Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 4, 2019, without any prior announcement or marketing.

Like all other battle royale games lately, this game focuses on the season merchandise, in-game loot boxes, and microtransactions.

The game is currently in its third season.

7. Untitled Goose Game

5. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is an action-adventure video game developed by FromSoftware and published by Activision. The game takes place in the Sengoku period in Japan and follows a shinobi known as Wolf as he attempts to take revenge on a samurai clan who attacked him and kidnapped his lord.

Sekiro was released on March 22, 2019, with some dubious claims from game journalists. The game was made to be hard and that is what is getting it to number 5 on my list. Other than its great amount of hard enemies and cool environments, the story has an overdone, but still fun plot.

4. Little Misfortune

From developers of Fran Bow, Killmonday Games, comes a new game. Little Misfortune is an adventure game/interactive story.

The main character is Misfortune Ramirez Hernandez, an imaginative 8-year-old. A kid with a dysfunctional family. Misfortune’s parents had a shotgun wedding, her mother is a drunk, and her father is never home. Check out our full review of Little Misfortune.

3. Devil May Cry 5

This is the game franchise I am biased about, and I will continue to be biased. I might have passed all levels and modes, waiting for a Vergil, Trish and Lady DLC.

Devil May Cry 5 is an action-adventure, hack & slash video game developed and published by Capcom, released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on 8 March 2019. It brings me a lot of joy to talk about a game with amazing timeline and super cool story.

The best storyline and amazing looking characters (Dante’s butt, Nero’s face, and V’s amazing looking body do sorta sell the characters), very realistic looking environments, the sole weapon range bring this game up to my number 3 spot.

2. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is an action-adventure game developed by Respawn and published by Electronic Arts. It was released for Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 15, 2019.

1.Resident Evil 2 Remake

The game that deserves the number one spot, for me is the first Capcom game title this year.

Resident Evil 2 is a survival horror game developed and published by Capcom on January 11, 2019. You control police officer Leon S. Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield as they attempt to escape from Raccoon City during a zombie apocalypse.

Capcom has developed a new game engine called Reach Engine and is not afraid to show us what it can do. This is the second Capcom game on the same engine and it shows us amazing environments and almost real-life looking characters and models. The story is still the same one from the original Resident Evil 2 from back in 1998. The puzzles are the same but better. Now that Capcom has the ability to make better-looking environments I am looking up to Resident Evil 3 next year.

Pretty good list!

The only changes I’d make is put Sekiro and The Outer Worlds above the likes of Fallen Order and Little Misfortune. Other than that, great stuff!

    I would remove Apex and put my game there instead.

    Let’s be honest, it is bad, but it’s still better than Apex 😛
