I have a finalized list! Time for some honorable mentions:

Astral Chain: I haven't finished it yet which is why I'm not ranking it officially yet but I'm very impressed by the game so far! The combat is excellent and the cop simulator aspects are great as well which is a bit of a surprise. Running with the beast Legion can be frustrating at times though.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening: Stellar remake, gets rid of all the bad things about the GameBoy version, looks amazing and provides a solid Zelda experience. Wish it was a bit longer though.

God of War (2018): I was sceptical of the new angle at first but it turned out really great. The combat while very different is fun and varied, the set pieces are stunning and the RPG elements are a welcome addition to the series. I do feel it has lackluster boss fights though.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night: Castlevania sequel in disguise, it's a great Metroidvania and I'm glad I backed it on Kickstarted way back in the 19th century. It is rough around the edges but it also filled with stuff to do and things to find! Gotta kill those murderers DEAD!

OK, I'll start with the hints for the first games, as tomorrow the first one already is unveiled.

#50: Guessed by RingoGaSuki: Dillon's Rolling Western

a) Fight the rocks before they reach the village!

b) Get resources from monsters and mines.

#49: Guessed by Jpcc86: Heretic

a) Fight gargoyles, golems, undead warriors and other monsters in dungeons riddled with traps.

b) Use weapons like the elven wand, ethereal crossbow, dragon claw and best of all: gauntlets of the necromancer.

#48: Guessed by TruckOSaurus: Zack and Wiki

a) Turn enemies into useful items to solve the puzzles.

You cut out all the best games.

Come on, A Link Between Worlds hasn't made my top 50 for a while, you just didn't notice it before cause I wasn't talking about it!

Anyways, I didn't actually mean it when I asked you guys to slow down! Gonna drop a bit more info on the hints because I might not be very active here this coming week.

#50 - I'm in it!
Hint 2 - You can barely call it a videogame.

#49 - It has clunky controls.
Hint 2 - I might've mentioned something about this a page ago...

#47 - It hasn't been ported to the Switch.
Hint 2 - It's already been mentioned as a guess for some of my other hints.

#50: Animal Crossing New Leaf

#49: Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

#47: Star Fox Zero

Alright, its gotta be Heretic.
The first hint was a bit too vague, got me thinking it was Castlevania or something of the sort. =P

#50 is way, way, way off.
#49 is somewhat close, but no. It's quite clunkier than that.
#47 is right.
