RE: Vote for the forum's GOTY 2019!
I finished 49 2019 games last year. I usually only finish around 30 new games a year. There are some games I skipped or didn't finish but I feel good about my top 8.
I'd like to suggest people check out A Plague Tale: Innocence. This is my biggest surprise of 2019. You can watch Huber's review.
Also, shout out to Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition. It was one of my favorite Xbox 360 games and I'm glad It holds up.

No one predicted Anthem scoring that low. Funny to think about how much confidence we all had in that game being well received.
@TokyoSlim I guessed 57 for Left Alive and even that was too high.

RE: [Official] What are you playing?
I played some of the Game Awards demos on Steam.
SkateBIRD - It's going with Tony Hawk Pro Skater style controls which I like. Unfortunately it doesn't feel as smooth as those games. The bird flaps around so much that its hard to keep track of which way your skateboard is facing. I noticed lots of bugs and after the second time the game crashed on me, I moved on to the next game.
Chicory A Colorful Tale - A top-down game about using paint to solve puzzles. Maybe a little too simple for my tastes but a solid game demo.
System Shock - I remember playing a System Shock demo years ago and I think this is that same game. I can't say for sure because I never got this demo to work. It wouldn't recognize control inputs. I couldn't change any of the settings in the menu so it was stuck at low graphics and resolution. If this is that same game from years ago, I would expect the demo to be better optimized than this.
The Drifter - This game has great style and I'm into the grim atmosphere. I've never been a fan of pixel point and click adventure games though. Which is what this game is.
Eastword - This one confused me because the demo has no tutorial or introduction to the game itself. I walked around and talked to a bunch of folks but nothing happened. Not a good first impression but it could just be a bad demo.
CARRION - This is why I wanted to play all these games. I never heard of this game before but now I'm completely sold on this one. Awesome gameplay, setting and great pixel art. I would prefer if it was simply level-based, instead it's more metroidvania style. At least it's not another rogue-like. Easily the best demo I played.
Spiritfarer - I spent my time hugging human sized animals, building up my house boat and gliding around like it's Breath of the Wild. What's not to love.
Haven - The movement felt a little too janky and the characters have some really bad/boring dialogue. Definitely feels like the game is in a very early stage of development.
