    Best games in 2019, games from 2016? Really? What's the point.

    The only ones I’ve played of these have been Hellblade, Celeste, And Soma and they’ve all been absolutely fantastic. I will definitely make notes of the other titles

    I hope more people leave their recommendations and favorites in the coming comments

    There's some good stuff here, and a few I've purchased but have yet to play.

    I feel, from recent memory, that Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is more than deserving of being listed here. I love the mix of real-time stealth with smooth strategic turn-based combat and a highly enjoyable cast of characters.

    This is a good list. I'd have most of these. I've played around 300 total and would add a couple more:

    Embers of Mirrim
    Layers of Fear
    Amnesia Collection (not sure this counts as a re-release but from the Soma devs)
    A Hat in Time
    Dex
    11-11 Memories Untold
    Oxenfree
    Outlast
    Boss 101
    Agatha Knife

    completely agree. should have been a smaller list of newer games.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought that. At least the article hasn’t got any PS4 exclusives in it this time laugh

    Yeah if all Id@Xbox games are available to rank why leave out Limbo?

    Limbo pre-dates ID@xbox. It was an XBLA title

    Highly recommend Rocket League. My favorite game of all time. Perfection! toast

    Also, it has a tendency to lock up? I guess!? I've played it for 1500 hours and it has crashed on me like a dozen times. Don't all games do that?
  • Posted on 20 February 19 at 18:40
    Of the titles I've played here, all have been fantastic.
    The rest are all acclaimed in their own way... except Forgotten Anne. Never heard of that title. I'm glad to have something to research later.

    Question about Banner Saga: apart from the animation style, what is the big pull for those games? Is the gameplay itself fun? I've wanted to play for a long time because of the unique art, but when I watch gameplay videos it looks somewhat boring. That and/or that I should be playing the game on PC instead of a console.

    Glad to see some ID love.

    Too many people around here slag the program off. There are a ton of great games, certainly a greater percentage than there was in the XBLIG program (around 1:100 personally there, based on my purchases compared to number of releases)

    Best games in 2019 does not equal best games of 2019

    I have no problem with this list and neither should you.

    I'm agreeing with this for Dex, it's such a great game. I'd also add the following that I enjoyed that aren't on this list:

    Observer
    Aaero
    Candleman
    Contrast
    Firewatch
    Redout
    QUBE and QUBE 2
    Oceanhorn
    Her Majestys Spiffing
    Spectra
    The Sexy Brutale

    HOLLOW KNIGHT! How can you forget that one & it’s a lot fresher than some of these titles.
