No one doubts that 2018 was one of the best years in the history of video games by quantity and quality of titles, but 2019 has also started very strongly, and that is still the best. Titles such as Resident Evil 2, Sekiro Shadows Die Twice, or Super Mario Maker 2 has been the spearhead of the first half of the year. Here, we collect the 20 titles that best average score has achieved in 2019, the analysis aggregator of which we are part.
To be the” beginning of the end “of two of the current consoles, PS4 and Xbox One, who will be relieved next year, the truth is that 2019 is staying very “fixed.” We have barely passed the middle of the year, and the big games begin to be unable to count on the fingers of the hand. Not bad for a cycle ends, which is also standard, as studies already know how to squeeze each console to the maximum.
It is only in this way that we have already seen games like Resident Evil 2 Remake, Sekiro, and so many others, to which Star Wars will join in the coming months: Jedi Fallen Order, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Control… and another good ten triple-A titles.
Top 20 games in 2019 Before going on to the list with the best games of 2019 so far, one detail is worth mentioning. To make this list, we have omitted duplicates. For example, if the PS4 version of Resident Evil 2 has a point less than the Xbox One, we have only considered the text with the highest average note. Therefore, you will see that certain games only appear with one version.

The best-rated game to date is, without any doubt, the remake of Resident Evil 2, which, as we said in our analysis, has delighted us and that the console versions lack the options to put the craziest mods like on PC.
It is also worthy of being on the Sekiro Shadows Die Twice podium, with its patient-proof difficulty, its hard bosses, and dozens of secrets and details to discover. NieR Automata close the top 3 with its 2019 re-edition with all DLC: a luxury opportunity to see one of the biggest surprises of this generation.
They have also given the F1 2019 Bell and Devil May Cry 5 with their Bloody Palace, not to mention the recent release of Super Mario Maker 2, which with its infinite levels and options to create them has earned an average of 89 more than deserved (and which coincides with the note we gave him).
It is also surprising to see Apex Legends, The Free Battle royale of Respawn, so high that many players have re-hooked after the arrival of their second season (with new challenges, rankings, etc.), added that have allowed them to regain some of the brightness lost after their release.
But 2019 is also not only leaving its mark with big, recognizable names. Other lesser-known titles have also won the favor of international criticism, is the case of; Slay The Spire, the RPG of cards for the PC and Nintendo Switch; Assault Android Cactus-the roguelike for the PC; Downwell, the cross-platform game which combines jumps with a “shooter”; Steins Gate Elite or Sunless Skies, the sequel of Sunless Sea for PC.
They close the list of the best games of 2019 other titles that have also been new surprises, such as ß for its history with temporary jumps and a new level of the barbarity of its Fatalities or Cadence of Hyrule, the rhythmic spin off the Legend of Zelda.
As we have already commented, some of the best titles of last year came in the previous few months, and this year will again be given almost without any doubt, with launches like Borderlands 3 or Pokémon Shield and Sword plus all the ones we have mentioned before. Without a doubt, 2019 promises to be a great year, but with games better average than in 2018?
