8. Disco Elysium

Disco Elysium is a game unlike any other, open-world RPG’s have been done many times before, but none are quite like this game.

The game is an ambitious detective game built around interrogation which has no right to work, but does.

Its system of navigation through a war within your own self as the weight of the world comes crashing down on you is genius. The game is bold in its thoughts and even more delicious in its execution of them.

What should have been a throwaway RPG has torn up the rule book and is now the standard-bearer.

Developer: ZA/UM
Formats: PC

7. Untitled Goose Game

Untitled Goose Game took the online world by storm when it came out with every major game’s reviewer showing their run-through on YouTube. A fantastic yet straightforward stealth game that allows you to wreak havoc on the town playing as a goose.

Sounds silly right? Wrong.

Gone are the days of knife-wielding and wall running assassins - the Goose is now the standard. No demand is too much for the heroic anti-hero with a honk and wingspan to frighten even the bravest farmers.

Untitled Goose Game knows how to not take itself too seriously with its slapstick humour and senseless yet thrilling tasks.

Developer: House House
Formats: PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4

6. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Call of Duty’s newest reboot lived up to expectations in 2019.

Powered by a brand-new engine that delivers impressive graphics, this frenetic shooter finds balance in its brilliance.

The missions will make you feel the weight and consequences of war far better than other Call of Duty games have, allowing for a player to become even more engrossed than they were before.

The game finds a way to continually suck you back in for more rounds, whether playing online or offline.

Developer: Infinity Ward
Format: PC, PS4, Xbox One

5. Apex Legends

A battle royale with intelligent features and unmissable characters combine for an unforgettable experience. The format for this game has been done before, Respawn found a way to take it to the next level.

It excels in its ability to get people hooked very quickly, log in for one game and you can easily lose an entire day in its realistic arena.

Apex Legends is consistently on the ball with new characters, limited-time events and adjustments to the gameplay. This means each day you play it, can feel like a unique experience.

Overall, Apex Legends has silently and methodically rocked the world.

Developer: Respawn
Format: PC, PS4, Xbox One

4. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

The Star Wars franchise had been crying out for a new game that was as fun yet interesting as the film series can be. Finally, it has one.

A mix and match from EA’s other impressive action titles, it has something for everyone, it fuses them together seamlessly and elegantly - making the player feel as though they could be a Jedi.

The game itself makes it feel as though it’s a part of the Star Wars universe as opposed to just mirroring it. The graphics are stunning at times and the gameplay is excellent with an engaging story.

There are some rough parts, but that can sometimes make a game feel more believable - which is undoubtedly the case here.

Developer: Respawn Entertainment
Format: PC, PS4, Xbox One

3. Resident Evil 2: Remake

Just as Call of Duty featured in the list for their re-make, Resident Evil has managed the same, with their reboot of Resident Evil 2.

Capcom took a considerable risk reinventing a game that is still popular today and managed to exceed expectations. They have delivered a horror game that was engaging, scary and influential to the genre.

It encompasses everything that makes classic games enjoyable and adds positive parts from a modern game to create an impressive hybrid.

It will be interesting to see where Resident Evil goes from here - after a series of mediocre games, the last two have revived them.

We look forward to more jump scares and gore in the future.

Developer: Capcom
Format: PC, PS4, Xbox One

2. The Outer Worlds

A space RPG with exciting characters, a developed back-story and complex decision making - what could possibly be better?

The Outer Worlds is the newest release on the list and managed to jump itself all the way to number two.

It can combine fun and seriousness together in a way that few games have managed before. The game centres around life-changing decisions that echo back to real-world problems in a way that few have mastered previously. However, there is also an option of shooting everyone you meet.

With a series of different endings that all wrap up at the end in different ways, the game has a repayable feeling that few games like this ever manage. Well done,

Obsidian, you’ve done it again.

Developer: Obsidian Entertainment
Format: PS4, Xbox One, PC

1. Control

Control is a third-person shooter set in a world of cursed everyday objects and mind-blowing dimensions.

All games should be about the journey as opposed to the ending, and this game does it better than any other on our list. It keeps you guessing from the moment you start till the closing credits.

The mechanics feel homely with easy to aim gunfire and the ability to hurl objects, but the changing physics and twisting storyline leave you hooked.

It shows how fantastic this game is that you will want to read the files to discover the government agencies at work and why even inane objects have everyone worried.

Developer: Remedy
Format: PC, PS4, Xbox One
