2020 was not a great year for massive AAA games. Numerous delays and problems with the largest scale games marred many releases. But Indie Developers, small scale experiments and long running games concluding meant the competition for Game of the Year 2020 is filled with quality.
It has been a genuinely amazing year for games. The sheer variety of games on offer has been bountiful and means everyone has something they can enjoy. AAA offered some excellent big budget experiences. Indies of all sizes created unique and stellar games. There were in fact, far too many games. So much I couldn’t even get to things like Outer Wilds, Heaven’s Vault, Mechwarrior or Resident Evil 2. But the 10 best games of the year 2019? The ones I played are below:
San Diego Comic Con and Hall H saw the announcement, and confirmation of everything we will see for the next two years of Marvel movies and Disney+ shows. It’s Marvel Phase 4. It’s time to get goddamned weird.
So what can Nintendo E3 2019 bring? Well, they’ve promised a stack of games coming in 2019. They’re uniquely positioned to take advantage of the fact they’re not moving console generations like Microsoft or Sony. As such, they can show off a whole bunch of games without worry.
For Square Enix E3 2019, we’ve been promised Avengers and promised Final Fantasy VII. What else can they possibly offer?
Ubisoft has a whole bunch of potential good stuff coming, starting with Watch Dogs Legion. What surprises will we see at Ubisoft E3 2019?
Not expecting any big news from Bethesda here, as Starfield and Elder Scrolls VI have already been announced as not attending. So what’s on show for Bethesda E3 2019?
There were a whole lot of rumours and questions going into Xbox E3 2019. We were promised games, promised news on Xcloud and promised a new console. What did Microsoft deliver in the end?
EA Play 2019 was the first big show of E3 2019, and they promised new info on their highly anticipated Star Wars title, as well as updates to all their existing games. So what did we see?
With the annual corporate extravaganza that is E3 beginning this weekend, time to work out what’s coming up. The conference is likely to be comparatively weak this year, as we still wait for news of the new console generation to break properly. There are a few fun reveals planned, but it’s always worth remembering that all of this is just fun marketing. Everything we see should be treated with healthy scepticism and an understanding that what we see is not what we will necessarily get.
