Disco Elysium – The Final Cut

This product was recommended by Ahmed Mir from Sip Coffee House

A game I would like to recommend is the 2019 isometric detective RPG game, Disco Elysium. With gorgeous visuals and a bold execution of heavy themes that is sure to make an impact on you, this game surely sets a benchmark for other RPG games that will come after it.

Apex Legends

This product was recommended by Robert Banks from MrStocks

This is the game my son played before that really made him hooked too much. I tried watching him one time and even though I’m also playing games before, I might not be able to play this as this type of game requires too much coordination from your eyes and hands. Strategizing different tactics and planning on how to move and navigate the map are well needed to ensure victory. There are so much to do in this game and not just fast-paced fighting with other players. I can see that my son is happy playing as he plays with his friends and always talks through headphones like soldiers about to go to war.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

This product was recommended by Fintan Costello from Bonus Finder

One of my all-time favorites and the game that got me through the long months of lockdown is definitely Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. While the Campaign is great and keeps you engaged for a day or two, I would argue that the Multiplayer is the best of its kind. Even after hundreds of hours of playing, I still find it enjoyable. With a wide range of weapon choices and modes ranging from Free-for-All to 10v10, from Gun Game to Demolition, you can always modify the game if your usual settings start to feel monotonous. What sets it apart from other similar games is the more realistic gameplay with amazing graphics. Modern Warfare is the perfect game for anyone who finds the futuristic shooter games with wall-running and supernatural abilities a bit childish.

Resident Evil 2

This product was recommended by Aidan Bernard from The Big Phone Store

Resident Evil 2 stands up to its classic PlayStation predecessor cementing itself as an iconic game, and is widely well-received for perfectly recapturing that feeling of fear and horror. The lifelike graphics, even now are some of the best ever, and the controls have evolved greatly from the original tank controls, playing more like Resident Evil 4, as a third-person shooter. As you fight to try to escape the zombie outbreak in raccoon city you can play through multiple protagonists’ perspectives providing a dynamic story.

Pistol Whip

This product was recommended by Olivia Tan from CocoFax

Pistol Whip is a rhythm/action VR game in which you murder your enemies to the pulsing beat of an amazing soundtrack. It’s a killer workout, as well as an effective way to blow off some steam if you’re stressed out, with enough options that change the scoring — and even the feel of the game, in some cases — to make sure it’s worth playing through each song multiple times. An instant VR classic, from a studio that clearly understands the medium.

Hypnospace Outlaw

This product was recommended by Olivia Tan from CocoFax

Hypnospace Outlaw is a flawless piece of historical fiction, a savage work of contemporary satire, and a genuinely tricky puzzle game. It’s a funny piece of work that’s nostalgic about the past without getting too misty-eyed. The game tasks me with working as a community enforcer, administering a code of behavior across its ugly, bizarre user-created pages. These websites are populated by a diverse cast of internet archetypes extant in the ’90s, as now. Copyright infringers, virus makers, hackers, scammers, and trolls must all be taken down through deduction, investigation, and lateral thinking.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

This product was recommended by Kris Silvey from Elevated Coffee Brew

I am a big fan of Bloodborne and the other Demon Soles Style games. When I heard that they were making a challenging Star Wars game with similar mechanics, I was sold! The combat in the game is responsive and makes you feel powerful. When you die, it’s usually because of a poor decision rather than the game being unfair. While dying does suck (and you will die) it’s never so devastating that you won’t want to try again.

Untitled Goose Game

This product was recommended by Kris Silvey from Elevated Coffee Brew

Long, super involved games are great. But sometimes I just want to be able to mess around in a game. Untitled Goose Game is exactly that. I beat the whole game in about 5 hours, but I enjoyed every minute of it. From destroying a farmers garden to stealing cheese to create a quiet picnic, there was always more mischief to be had.

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice

This product was recommended by Christina Giaquinto from Modular Closets

It is a sword fighting game set in medieval japan. The game mechanics are most on parry and dodge. Not only this game is extremely fun to play but this game also brings the challenge of tough bosses to the table. It has an award for the game of the year of 2019.

Devil May Cry 5

This product was recommended by Christina Giaquinto from Modular Closets

This game is the sequel of Devil May Cry 4. Not only this game is an example of extreme fun but challenging. But also this game brings itself out with eye-shattering graphics. It is also a fighting game with a lot of memorable characters.

Resident Evil 2

This product was recommended by Christina Giaquinto from Modular Closets

It is the remastered version of the famous old-school game resident evil 2. This game is a complete mixture of action, adventure and horror, game brings wonderful world design with a lot of different variations of enemies. It is a must-have for any zombie lover.

Forza Horizon 4 Standard Edition

This product was recommended by Laura Jimenez from Ishine365

Forza Horizon 4 is one of the best driving games out in 2019. If you’re looking for driving games, the Forza Horizon 4 is the best one. The game is phenomenal in so many aspects. First, the car supply is endless and you will also love the auction house concept that with it you can earn extra credits and buy special cars. Moreover, the racing is fun and there is lots of variety like dirt, street, circuit, sprints, and boss battle racing! You can customize your cars, trucks, and buggies. It is also very easy to upgrade the car performance with motor swaps and all the parts. This game is everything I want! I’d highly recommend Forza Horizon 4!

New World Standard Edition

This product was recommended by Joe Flanagan from 90s Fashion

No doubts the best game of the year, challenging both pve and pvp players. An amazing game with lots of interesting quests, great world building and beautiful environment designs. The items and costumes are superbly designed, with a ton of textures and small details, which makes the game feel more vivid. Totally recommend it!

Control Ultimate Edition

This product was recommended by Eden Cheng from PeopleFinderFree

Control is a supernatural thriller game that is developed by the game studio Remedy, where players essentially take on the role of Jesse, who is the newly appointed director of a paranormal government agency called the Federal Bureau of Control. However, as it is to be expected, it’s not long before things start to get out of control. The majority of the game is played inside The Oldest House, which is the FBC’s headquarters that happens to be hiding all kinds of unsettling secrets. And as you can guess, the game’s atmosphere is just as eerie, weird, and unsettling as the plot would suggest, as at its heart it’s all about exploration. You essentially keep delving further into the building, as you try to understand its many mysteries. You may even find yourself walking into rooms full of floating bodies, all of whom are chanting in unison, but while the game has its creepy moments, it will also be the most fun you have.

Borderlands 3

This product was recommended by Demi Yilmaz from Colonist

It’s not every day that a game surpasses the bar that its predecessor set which is exactly why Borderlands 3 is such a winner. It may not be incredibly different from the first two games but it certainly improves upon the entire experience and offers a brilliantly designed new planet for players to explore and conquer. From its seamless gameplay to its impressive co-op, the expansive world is full of surprises that never fail to disappoint.

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe

This product was recommended by Shiv Gupta from Incrementors

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe may have a goofy name, with bookended superlatives and a now-out-of-place U, but the game’s debut on Nintendo Switch allows a far bigger audience to experience what some believe to be the best Mario game of all time. There are more than 30 years of Mario platforming mastery in here that both veteran Nintendo fans and beginners may enjoy. It’s a beautifully designed Mario game that’s made even better by the fact that it can be played anywhere on the Nintendo Switch.
