Best Games We Loved in 2019

Some say that 2019 was slow when it comes to new gaming titles. We still have to see what developers have in store for us for Christmas, but so far, the situation is far from bad. Some of the biggest names have already dropped their titles for this year, like Infinity Ward and their latest CoD or Obsidian with Outer Worlds. There are plenty of games to enjoy in 2019 and these are our picks.

Outer Worlds

Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows

One of the best things about the Outer Worlds are the characters. Incredibly well-written, they add amazing depth to the game, touted as the spiritual heir to the Fallout: New Vegas from the same developer, Obsidian Games. In essence, it is an old-school RPG and very proud of it. The game leaves you a lot of freedom on how to pursue your objectives and going in all guns blazing is far from being the only option. To be honest, that is a good thing, because combat is probably the weakest part of the game. Fortunately, there is more than enough of other content in this space-faring adventure that combat isn't all that important.

Online Slot Games

Platform: Browser

2019 has been a great year for popular online slots games. So many good titles came out that it is hard to sum them all up. Dead or Alive 2, Tiki Vikings, Magic of Sahar, and DemiGods III are just some of the games that have captivated players with both the gameplay and massive rewards. Some of them are progressive, while others are traditional slots. This wide variety has made it possible for everyone to find a game they enjoy and try their luck in winning some money. RTP (Return to Players) has seemingly hit all high this year, with some games giving back as much as 92.65 of all stakes to the players through winnings.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows

Set prior to the events of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the latest edition of the Modern Warfare franchise is everything we hoped it would be. The game is based on a much more realistic approach than the last couple of Call of Duty titles, and that alone is a huge upgrade. Not only that but unlike Black Ops 4, this game features a full single-player campaign. It would seem that the folks over at the Infinity Ward finally came to their senses. The game feels more like the early titles from the highly popular series. Modern Warfare is a successful attempt by Infinity Ward to go back to its roots. We have no doubt that the fans will love it.

Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

Platform: Nintendo Switch

Another installment of Legend of Zelda, released on Nintendo Switch, has proved to be a massive hit with the player base. The company's decision to remaster the original Game Boy version from 1998 and bring it up to date was praised by both critics and players. Amazing characters, puzzles, and dungeons, staples of the Zelda franchise, are to be found in huge quantities here. What is different is the modern graphics, which makes all the sites even more adorable. It is a great game for all Zelda fans, but also a great choice for someone just discovering it.

Blood and Truth

Platform: PlayStation 4

Set in London, Blood and Truth offers you the life of a gangster trying to make his way in the big city. Developed by SIE London Studio, the game has hit it off with the fans almost immediately. It is one of the best PSVR (PlayStation Virtual Reality) shooters we have ever played. Its immersive nature is enhanced with a clever story and excellent graphics and details. For instance, the main character will reach for his pocket before reloading his gun. This and many other details really create a unique atmosphere in the game.

The Division 2

Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows

In a rare example in the gaming industry, Ubisoft actually listened to people who played the original Division and incorporated their complaints into the sequel. The result is a game that took everything good from the first title and improved it massively. At the same time, it eliminated almost all the things people hated in the original game, like a mediocre campaign and useless side missions. The result is probably one of the best sequels we have ever seen. Things you collect now make sense and the campaign actually feels like a progression, rather than just a pointless grind. The Division 2 is a game that is a game that is going to be played for a long time.

Apex Legends

Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows

Apex Legends came out of nowhere and took the gaming world by storm. When released, it was a complete outsider and just a few short months later, it was going toe to toe with the likes of Fortnight and Team Fortress 2. It is incredibly fun and easy to play battle royal set in a setting similar to Titanfall 2. And it is completely free to play.

Listing the best games of 2019 can be an ungrateful job, especially since the year isn't over yet. This time next month, the list may end up looking completely different. Still, we made our choice and are willing to live with it.
