Another year of gaming memories is rapidly coming to a close so here are our highest rated games of 2019. Happy New Year!

Blaster Master Zero 2

Blaster Master Zero 2 already won our Switch Exclusive and Metroidvania of the Year awards so it's bound to be featured on this list as well. From its rewarding level of challenge to its highly imaginative world, this is a must-have game for any retro gaming fan.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown

After taking home our Action Game of the Year award, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown soars high again with its exhilarating gameplay, gorgeous visuals, and top-notch extras. Now that I got a Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas 4 for Christmas, I can't wait to play it again!

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy

Being our Modern Console Compilation of the Year, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is a collection of 3 of the best story-driven experiences with complex and interactive plots. Now that it's better than ever, we highly recommend giving this trilogy a go.

Evoland Legendary Edition

Although it flew underneath many gamers' radars, Evoland Legendary Edition ended up being our overall Indie Game of the Year and rightfully so. Its clever take on retro gaming completely blew us away and it remains a phenomenal tribute to classic games.

AI: The Somnium Files

With so many unforgettable stories told in 2019, it's impressive that AI: The Somnium Files won our Story of the Year award and it's definitely worthy with its amazing cast of characters and branching plot that'll keep you playing until you unravel everything.

Trine 2: Complete Story

Yes, Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince released earlier this year which won our 2D Platformer of the Year but Trine 2: Complete Story also came out for Switch and overall, it's a slightly better game and my personal favourite of the entire series. It's a great year for Trine!

Trine 2 is my favourite game in the entire series and it still looks amazing

Control

Out of all the big budget games released in 2019, Control snatched our overall AAA Game of the Year award and it's also our second highest rated game of 2019. Its mind-bending world, immersive storytelling, and tight gameplay make it one memorable experience.

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered

It's funny that the winner of our Port of the Year award is also our Game of the Year for 2019 yet Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered is seriously that amazing of a game so if you still haven't played it yet; what are you waiting for?
