​Metacritic's Top 15 Games Of 2019

​Metacritic's Top 15 Games Of 2019

As we race to the end of 2019, every gaming site is going over its lists and checking them twice, to publish their game of the year awards. You may be doing something similar, looking back over the last 12 months and picking your highlights. Here at the GAMINGbible offices, we're picking our games in the time-honored tradition of chess boxing - I'm representing Outer Wilds. I've threaded by mitts with barbed wire so I've high hopes of it making out top five.

Well, while we're beating each other senseless and arguing over the best games, Metacritic simply tallied up all the reviews it's shared over the year and used those accumulated scores to work out the top 15 games of 2019. Some might call it data analysis, but I call it cheating. I prefer the old ways:

So, without further ado, here they are:

It's a solid list, and I'm glad to see Disco Elysium and Slay The Spire make the cut as they're excellent games that don't have the AAA backing of a game like Resident Evil 2. Though, I'm a little surprised not to see a game like Outer Wilds make the list, an excellent game that's been written about a lot this year. But, that's how the numbers go, it's got a low 80s score from the combined reviews and that means it misses the list.

How many of those games have you played? Would you rank them as the year's best? What would you change?
