GAMINGbible’s Games Of The Year 2019: Staff Picks

GAMINGbible’s Games Of The Year 2019: Staff Picks

By now, you've hopefully seen our 25 Greatest Video Games Of 2019, either on these very pages or in video form on our Facebook page, on Twitter, or in our Snapchat Discover Edition. If not, please, go and check out that list, and join with us to toast what has been a pretty decent year for video games.

As good as 2018? As 2017? We can argue about that another time. What's certain is that every member of the GAMINGbible team has their own opinions, and their own favourites of the year. And it's with these individual top 15s, with scores assigned to each position, that we ended up with our overall list of 25 - topped, as if the below doesn't make it clear, by Remedy Entertainment's Control. Congrats to the team over in Finland.

So please enjoy each staffer's own list below, and see who amongst us you most align with on taste. Then find them on Twitter (don't), relentlessly stalk them (don't), until they've no choice but to follow you back, make plans to visit on your next birthday, and then block you and never show up (um).

Only two games (!) appear in all eight lists - spot them, and win a prize (our respect).
