Best Video Games of 2019

eFootball PES 2020

eFootball PES 2020 is at the top of our list. With the last game, Konami changed the name of the game. September and October are especially important for football game lovers. Because we could play only two football games which is on the market. Most of the innovations in the new game are focused on the PES Master League. Although the career mode of PES is already better than FIFA, it has always lagged behind due to licensing problems. Of course, the game still has license problems, but there are impressive innovations in career mode. Another innovation of PES 2020 is a new mode called Match Day. In this mode, real-world derby and important matches are revived. Players start collecting points by selecting their team at these weekly events, and those who perform well in the final of the event have the chance to show their skills in a live broadcast match for all players.

Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled

While the next generation of gamers are more familiar with the Naughty Dog team than The Last of Us or the Uncharted series, players who have been connected to Sony since the PlayStation 1 era know the developer team with the Crash series. In response to Nintendo's family games, some of the Crash games launched with the support of Sony have been renewed in recent years and adapted to next-generation platforms. The Crash brand, which has the right to distribute in Activision, is no exclusive games for PlayStations in the new generation. It is not wrong to say that the most entertaining one among the Crash games on every platform is adapted to the next-generation platforms.

Mortal Kombat 11

Gameplay mechanics built on a certain foundation in the 9th game and still taken over the same foundation, have been slightly modified in the Mortal Kombat 11. Mortal Kombat, taking on a fast pace in the tenth game, never drops the same tempo. Developers, who integrate some characters with fast and some characters with slower combos, have planned you to play all the characters and choose the most suitable one. The newly added characters are very useful. In the previous production, which was added and not preferred, such as Ferra & Torr instead of characters with a more robust character such as Collector or Cetrion came. They don't grin among the old characters like a new student.

The Outer Worlds

Obsidian team, who prefer an alternative universe in terms of story, starts the scenario in 1901 when former American President Willian McKinley was not assassinated. The US government, which is unable to rule the market for its own purposes because it is set in an alternative universe, finds the remedy to leave management to large corporations. In the continuation of the story, in which the capitalist order operates brutally, colonies begin to be established in space. As you begin to slowly enter the world of The Outer Worlds, set in 2355, you can see how much money, authority, and rank people have earned and merit.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

In general, the game follows the footsteps of Souls games, but with the theme it has, it is a production that manages to leave them. It's not for everyone, like Souls games and Bloodborne. The game remains super faithful to his own genre and fulfills everything it needs to do well, except for minor mistakes. So you get more pleasure as you die, and as you enjoy, you want to continue playing with ambition.

The Outer Wilds

The discovery games, which we have seen more examples with the increasing opportunities offered to indie developers in recent years, have embraced the whole game world. Indie games, uniform style and often with superficial psychological elements can no longer attract the attention of many players for these reasons. Although we encountered some outstanding examples, we can say that the indie gaming industry can not raise the quality bar of exploration and horror games to a sufficient level. But this time we are faced with a very different game. The Outer Wilds, adorned with science fiction elements, may be the most remarkable game of the year.

Kingdom Hearts 3

Although Kingdom Hearts 3 tries to gather its main story, it focuses on different stories as well as the most important games in the series. These different stories are hidden in the Disney Worlds that we go through the game. Throughout the story, we have the chance to go to many different worlds, from Toy Story to Pirates of the Caribbean. Moreover, the story of all these Disney Worlds has been fed into the game very successfully. So, when you go to the world of San Fransokyo, which is the world of Big Hero 6, you can see the story you know from the movie and witness how beautiful the characters of the game are added to this story. The worlds we visited before have their own stories. In other words, the story of Hercules, which we have visited many times before, is not found in the beginning but in a way that continues in itself. Moreover, there are dozens of other characters outside the world.

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince

Although it looks like new, the Trine series, which has reached the consistency of an old series after 10 years, has managed to give platform players good hours. With Frozenbyte's surprising 4th announcement, which was supposed to be a trilogy, brought our three heroes back together. The game, which is named Trine 4 The Nightmare Prince, invites us to a fairytale journey after four years. The story, where Amadeus, Pontius, and Zoya come together, begins with Prince Selius' interest in dark magic.

Yakuza, one of Sega's most established series, has a certain audience. In the series, which has been going on for many years, we witnessed the events of a Yakuza leader. This time, however, it's time to browse the other side of the criminal world. We control Judgment, the so-called Spin-off of the Yakuza games,  another character that goes through the same universe, another story, a character who chases justice, a former lawyer, a new detective Takayuki Yagami.

A Plague Tale: Innocence

You know, there are some games, after you finish, you think constantly, then you think again. Before you fall asleep, you think of it that what a strange adventure you passed through it. You fell like it's a real memory. Innocence was literally such an experience: A Plague Tale. A Plague Tale: Innocence; as a production proving that it can be a good game I have already played this year, like how storytelling, character depth, plot is very important in games, action level is very low, gameplay mechanics limited even if the plot, good story, great atmosphere.
