The 2019 Desire Index



  • @scotty Basically (and being this late in the Desire Index's life, I don't expect anyone to, so no worries!) last year when I set up just a general Master Index, it was for all games regardless, but as time went on, several people wanted to do just a 2019 version, so when I created this thread specifically, it was with the understanding that new games and remasters/remakes (from AAA to small games no one else has heard of) were eligible whereas games delayed out of 2019 and straight ports wouldn't be simply because without some significant addition or alteration to the game, having a game already out that's the same version but on a different console just didn't feel right. Kind of like GOTY thinking. For example, to use RDR II on PC as an example, only the most die-hard RDR II fans would try to argue it should be in GOTY contention this year, but the case wouldn't hold up.

    Regardless, thank you very much for making the inquiry!



  • @brannox

    Sure, I totally get it. No worries.



  • The next release is the last for awhile, but when the end of October gets here, a large chunk will be gone.

    But before then is now and now is Indivisible, the 14th most desired game. It finishes with two desires: eighth and 17th most.

    Before the massive day that will be the 25th, we'll be back on the 22nd for our next removal.



  • With today's news of DOOM: Eternal's delay, it is now disqualified from the Index. For reference, it was the fifth most desired game remaining, with seven desires, two of which (one of them being mine) had it at the top of the list.





  • @oscillator Thanks for doing so! Was able to add your Luigi's Mansion desire to your pre-existing Pokemon ranking (That I had adjusted).

    long overdue update



  • @shoulderguy Thanks for doing so! The Index is updated accordingly.



  • Most of the games I wanted for 2019 already came out, only one left I'm really looking forward is Luigi's Mansion 3.



  • A recent addition is now out and off the Index! Little Town Hero is now available, and at the time of being stricken, finishes at the 21st most desired spot, the lone desire being 6th highest.

    NOW the next strike will be the 22nd (wasn't expecting additions this late, but they're always welcome!)
