The 2019 Desire Index

  • Hello everyone! This is the second iteration of the Forums' Desire Index after a poll called for a new and updated version. Because this is a new list/thread/etc., I think it would be best to slightly adjust how this one will work as opposed to the last thread:

    Much like the previous thread, we'll provide our own Desire Index list, but we're ONLY going to have 2019 games. That means games that have been OFFICIALLY been given a release with 2019 in a trailer, an interview, or some other on the record capacity. If at any point such recognition is/has been made public, providing evidence would be greatly appreciated.

    With that in mind, the kings of the last Master Index, CyberPunk 2077, The Last of Us Part II, and Ghost of Tsushima, are, as of the time of this thread's creation, are NOT eligible. Also, games that are unannounced but we know are being worked on (Rocksteady's next game for example.) are also out. HOWEVER, if a game does become dated for 2019, it becomes instantly allowed. Conversely, if a game gets delayed, it immediately is stricken.

    Again, while we have our own individual preferences, I'll combine all lists for a communal list to have an objective ranking what the ACTUAL most desired games are.

    Now all of that taken care of, the EZA Forums' 2019 Desire Index is as follows:

    COMPLETED! We've reached the end of 2019 and every game has either been released or delayed into the next year. While I hold no delusions this will be saved for the Hall of Fame, this was a fun time and if, per chance, anyone were to stumble upon this, please read below to watch the life this thread took.

    Thank you!

  • My 2019 Desire Index is now completely empty for being either released or delayed!! Woooo!

    EDIT 1: Number 1 overall Kingdom Hearts III taken off for being released.

    EDIT 2: Number 5 overall Metro: Exodus taken off for being released.

    EDIT 3: Added Wrath: Aeon of Ruin after discovering a trailer for the game. VERY intrigued.

    EDIT 4: Added Creature in the Well and Splitgate: Arena Warfare after discovering them when attending PAX East. While both, plus 2017's Get to the Orange Door are appealing, they are not coming to consoles I own, so they'll place low.

    EDIT 5: Added Borderlands 3 for FINALLY having an official 2019 date.

    EDIT 6: Dropping Days Gone (then Number 5) the day before release in light of the disappointing reviews.

    EDIT 7: Moving Borderlands 3 up from 5th to 3rd for being quite impressed by its gameplay reveal.

    EDIT 8: Added Observation courtesy of the Easy Update showing off the first 20 minutes. That game looks like a mind&^$%.

    EDIT 9: Number 9 overall Observation taken off for being released.

    EDIT 10: Number 10 overall Splitgate: Arena Warfare taken off for being released (Free to play on Steam).

    EDIT 11: Added Death Stranding after its official release date announcement

    EDIT 12: Number 2 Ori and the Will of the Wisps taken off for being delayed into 2020.

    EDIT 13: Added DOOM: Eternal for finally getting an official 2019 release. Will update all Master List after E3.

    EDIT 14: Added Panzar Dragoon courtesy of the Nintendo Direct. I hope it'll come to another console.

    EDIT 15: Number 7 Wrath: Aeon of Ruin taken off for being delayed into 2020.

    EDIT 16: Number 5 CTR: Nitro-Fueled taken off for being released.

    EDIT 17: Number 4 Wolfenstein: Youngblood taken off for being released.

    EDIT 18: Switching Death Stranding (The gamescom presentation proved for me, it's too weird and self-obtuse) for Ghostrunner (Cyberpunk Mirror's Edge. 'Nuff said.)

    EDIT 19: Dropping Panzar Dragoon Remake (then number 8) after thinking about it's on rails nature for quite a significant amount of time and realizing it's not for me.

    EDIT 20: Number 6 Creature in the Well taken off for being released.

    EDIT 21: Number 2 Gears 5 taken off for being released.

    EDIT 22: Number 2 Borderlands 3 taken off for being released.

    EDIT 23: Number 4 Ghostrunner taken off for being delayed into 2020.

    EDIT 24: Number 1 DOOM: Eternal taken off for being delayed into 2020.

    EDIT 25: Switched The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe Edition and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order due to hearing positive things about the latter, but nothing since announcement about the former.

    EDIT 26: Number 1 Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order taken off for being released.

    EDIT 27: Number 1 The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe Edition taken off for being delayed into 2020. FINAL EDIT!!!

  • @capnbobamous Never apologize for what you like! Have as many or as few as you want. That's the beauty of something like this: Every game every person is into will make the list, whether its on every person's picks or a single person's list.

  • I desire many things apparently.

    2. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
    3. ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove

    Titles in bold are new additions to the list. I used this Wikipedia link to fill them in, lemme know if something doesn't check out.

  • @sabotagethetruth Catherine Full Body is because it does not have a confirmed Western release for 2019. Bard was going to have it as their second overall desire, but I could only find the Japanese release to corroborate its eligibility. Factoring in your list now.

  • is not Doom eternal 2019 game?

    1. Metro Exodus
    2. Doom Eternal
    3. The Outer worlds
    4. Resident Evil 2
    5. RAGE 2

  • As much as I'm anticipating DOOM: Eternal, there is no official statement I could find dating it as 2019. As such, it is currently not eligible (though I DO think it'll come out in the fall. It's just not dated as of today), and have adjusted the values accordingly.
