I'm just including games that were released before 2019. I'll save my 2019 GOTY for a different topic.
My top 5:
- Batman: Arkham City
- Batman: Arkham Knight
- Portal 2
- The Last of Us Remastered
- Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden
Phoenix Point is releasing December 3, 2019 on the Epic Games Store. It's coming to Xbox One in early 2020, and PS4 "later" in 2020
If your an XCOM fan. You probably should check out Phoenix Point. Some of the XCOM inspired games I've played recently have been hit and miss. I liked Mutant Year Zero but I didn't care much for Phantom Doctrine. I'm optimistic for Phoenix Point because it has people like Julian Gollop, creator of the original X-COM working on the game.
With 2019 drawing to a close. I wanted to make a thread to share and discuss our favorite video game music from this year.
Here are my favorite video game music tracks of 2019.
Fire Emblem Three Houses - Between Heaven and Earth
Yooka Laylee and The Impossible Lair - Factory Fright – Flooded
Kingdom Hearts III - Oscuritá di Xehanort
Control - Take Control
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening - Staff Credits
Devil May Cry 5 - Devil Trigger
The Outer Worlds - Main Menu Theme
My guess is that Resident Evil 2 wins this year. I really thought Fire Emblem: Three Houses had a shot at being nominated but I'm not surprised. When was the last time a anime-style turn-based strategy RPG with Persona style social relationship mechanics won game of the year.
What sets Easy Allies apart from other media outlets is their positive attitude and lack of cynicism. The internet and video game culture have enough negativity already. It's nice watching a podcast or stream where the Allies can share that enthusiasm.
