The Best Games of 2019 so Far? Metacritic Responds with a Top-20!

We have now entered the month of July, surpassing definitively the first half of this 2019. To celebrate the occasion and take stock of the situation on videogame entertainment, Metacritic has published an interesting ranking.

In particular, the well-known platform for aggregating evaluations has made available a top-20, with which the titles that, by virtue of their Metacritic average, can boast the title of “best games of 2019” are presented … at least at the moment! Within the ranking, there are extremely different productions, but they share a warm welcome! For games published on more than one platform, the one with the most reviews was used as a reference, while reissues of titles from the past were excluded, except for a “substantial difference” from the original. Here are the results!

  1. Resident Evil 2: conquers the top the remake of the classic Capcom, which totals a Metascore of 91/100! The game has indeed brought together public and critics.
  2. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice: the latest production of From Software wins the silver medal, with a Metascore of just under 90/100.
  3. For the bronze medal, things get more complex: they get a score of 89/100 different games. These include Super Mario Maker 2, Slay the Spire and Apex Legends.

Given the hard-fought third place, we start from the sixth position, occupied by Devil May Cry 5, with a vote of 87/100. Instead, the seventh position is once again fought, which sees the conquest of a Metascore of 86 the following productions:

  • Sunless Skies,
  • Steins Gate Elite,
  • MLB The Show 2019,
  • Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the Necrodancer featuring The Legend of Zelda,

Leaving the top ten, we start from the twelfth position, with 85/100:

  • Total War: Three Kingdoms,
  • Outer Wilds,
  • Devotion,
  • Blaster Master Zero II,

Finally, they close the ranking with 84/100:

  • Wargroove,
  • Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story + Bowser Jr.’s Journey,
  • Irony Curtain: From Matryoshka with Love,
  • DiRt Rally 2.0,
