Game of the Year awards,....... for 2019 actually.
Some would say I'm late to the party, but as I sit here in my speedo and tube socks I need to point out I'm actually fashionably late.

No time for stupid jokes, there are too many awards to hand out and not enough time. This is the part where I warn you that in 2019 I probably didn't play any games that actually were nominated at the game awards last year. I didn't play Gears of War 5 or Devil May Cry 5, or frankly any game with a 5 in the title. I play a lot of indie games, so here's the best.

The best game I never finished: Guacamelee 2

I made up this award specifically for this game. A story achievement glitched on me late game so I stopped playing. Also It technically came out the year before on PS4 so I didn't want to consider it for GOTY for those 2 reasons. All that said it might be even better than the original, It is certainly even more difficult if you can believe it.

Best Sports: Super Blood Hockey

Listen it wasn't even a close race. This is not only an outrageously fun multiplayer game with plenty of depth, but it also has a surprisingly great campaign mode. I took North Korea to the championship and killed dozens of opposing players along the way. Even if you aren't smart enough to understand why hockey is the greatest sport in the world, you are probably smart enough to understand why this was the best sports game of 2019. Just kidding, you are all very smart and I love you, honest.

Best Brawler: River City Girls

This was going to get the award for "might have been GOTY but I haven't played it yet" but then it hit gamepass and well... I played it... and it wasn't. Still a great time overall. Been a fan of River City Ransom since somehow the game fell into my possession back in 1991, and River City Girls is a fun update to the formula. I can't complain about much here, except the voice acting is pretty atrocious. Go play it now if you haven't yet.

Best Shmup: Natsuki Chronicles

Not much to say, yet.

Best Soundtrack: Natsuki Chronicles

Can't be best shmup without a great soundtrack.

Best Game of 2019: Natsuki Chronicles

Listen, if you're a true gamer, you owe it to yourself to own at least one top quality shmup. This is the one. Whether you are a beginner or a grizzled veteran this is the game you need. Perfect balance and progression, a terrific soundtrack, great stage design. I could go on and on... and I have. So you should go to the Xbox store and just get it now.

If you just came back from the store and you said to yourself "I aint paying this much" then you should read my review, I made it for you specifically.

P.S. I love you, honest.

Runner up: Gaijin Charenji 1 Kiss or Kill

A must play experience. I'd hate to spoil too much. Let's just say if you are the type who wants to boost your gamerscore and you're also getting sick of the vapid pointless Ratalaika games, give this a try. It's also cheap, and on sale for next to nothing this week so you have no excuse.

Also reviewed it.... enjoy.

Thanks for reading.

Thinking about what to review next, back to euroshmups part 5? Maybe... but I might make one or two more pit stops along the way.

I play various, complex and multi-element decks, although Water is my preferred style, much like Blue in MTG.
