Forums - Gaming Discussion - What games are you looking forward to (so far) in 2019?

Luigi's Mansion 3
Resident Evil 2
Doom Eternal
Daemon X Machina
Metro Exodus
Yoshi's Crafted World
Ghosts of Tsushima
Metroid Prime 4(yeah right, like that is going to be a 2019 game)

Nothing to see here, move along

Probably not too much this year, unless more stuff gets announced.

KH3, Sekiro, Nioh 2, The Outer Worlds, Ghosts of Tsushima maybe, Biomutant maybe, Digimon Survive maybe.

IF Shin Megami Tensei V isn't exclusive I buy it. IF Dragon Age releases 2019 I buy it. Both not going to happen though.

I don't know if these are coming out in 2019 but I am looking forward to them.

Granblue Fantasy: Project re:link
Final Fantasy XIV Shadowbringers
Ghosts of Tsushima
Days Gone
Dead or Alive 6
God of War part 2
Final Fantasy VII Remake
Death Stranding

FIFA 20 & Days Gone are the only ones I'm looking forward to so far.

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Not really all that many games to be excited for this year it seems.

But I got a few I have my eyes on.
-Super Mario Bros
-Gears 5 I will give a try

I guess I won't truly know until E3 has passed by what I actually want and will get at the end of the year. Microsoft won't reveal anything new until E3, so all I know so far is Gears 5 and Crackdown 3, which will be apart of Gamepass for me since I don't give those games special treatment like Forza and pre order them.
Also curious as to what Call of Duty is coming this year, based on past events, we got 5 months until that game is fully revealed and it could possibly be MW4 (MW2R on its 10 year anniversary would also be nice).

I'm looking forward to most Nintendo releases, anxious/scared for Fire Emblem.

Right now tho, I'm most excited about Tales of Vesperia, not so much for replaying it myself (I'll buy it again on Switch, but I still own my 360 copy) but more so because a couple of friends that are Tales of fans finally get to experience this really nice entry in the franchise.

Let's have a champion time!


Day 1:
The Outer Worlds (Fallout: New Vegas is one of my favorite games)
In the Valley of Gods (I loved Campo Santo's Firewatch and similar games such as Edith Finch and The Witness)
Pokémon 2019 (haven't played since "Silver" but I'm stoked for the first fully 3D console game)
Crash Team Racing (I loved the original and can't wait to play this with friends)
Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order (if good this will be the first EA game I'll buy in years)
The Last of Us 2 (not confirmed to be 2019)
Cyberpunk 2077 (not confirmed to be 2019)

Other games I'm looking forward to but probably won't buy day 1:
Days Gone
Doom Eternal
C&C Remastered
Resident Evil 2 Remake
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
Ori and the Will of the Wisps

I'm not particularly hyped on Shenmue but since I supported it on Kickstarter I'll be playing it this August.

Yoshi's Crafted World looks like a very fun and charming platformer. I've never played a Yoshi game before, but from what I've seen so far this one seems very promising. Also, this is basically guaranteed to be my graphics GOTY for 2019.


Shovel Knight: King of Cards is a new campaign for one of the best platformers ever made, so of course it's going to be great. The devs called it "our biggest and most grandest singleplayer campaign yet". On the same day they're also releasing Shovel Knight Showdown, which is a multiplayer fighting game, and looks very fun as well.


Pokémon Gen 8 is a game we know we know absolutely nothing about, and there's a lot that could go wrong. Still, it's a new main entry in one of my favourite franchises, so I can't help being excited for it. I mostly hope Game Freak focusses on making the game actually good, instead of just 'different'.


Other games I might play: Luigi's Mansion 3, Animal Crossing, Metroid Prime 4, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, Pikmin 4, Doom Eternal, Team Sonic Racing, My Friend Pedro... However, I have so many older games to play, so I doubt I'll end up getting any of these.

Yeah Platinum can do anything and I'll be onboard. Not sure when that one is coming out though. 

DMCV is something that I hope winds up being good. But the MTX in it just make me wary. Same goes for MK11. It looks good, but I'm not paying $60 + another $40 for season pass characters.
