The year has come to a close and in addition the decade. There’s not many times a decade closes, so when one does, there’s usually a lot of reminiscing happening.
The past year was amazing for games, but the past decade was even better. Thanks to Metacritic, we got a couple of new lists that detail some of the best games of the year. As voted by the fans, we got a list dedicated for the best games of 2019 as well as the past decade.
I will quickly go through the top three of each list which includes Resident Evil 2, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and Death Stranding for the top three f 2019. For the past decade, the top three include The Last of Us, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
Make sure to check out both list in full detail down below:
We don’t collect critic top-10 lists for videogames, but we did rank the year’s best-reviewed games. Our users’ #1 choice below, Resident Evil 2, was indeed 2019’s best-reviewed new game, while #2, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, was also second with critics among new titles. Our users definitely liked Death Stranding better than reviewers did, however; that PS4 exclusive was just the 30th-highest-scoring release for Sony’s console last year.
