I’m working with a different awards group right now to showcase the best of 2019 in a more professional ceremony, but as usual that comes with it’s fair share of politics, lobbying, and schmoozing. It is very draining, so I look forward to a more private list here, with my Chrono buddies.
Just keeping a slot here so when I have time to publish my Steam list it will appear, but trust me when I say: Red Dead Redemption 2 will feature somewhere in my list, since it officially hit PC in 2019. I don’t know what I am nominating it for (worst port? best graphics?) but it will be featured somewhere. Is there a category for “Less Than Perfect Launch Day, But Amazing Game Regardless”? Because anyone remember the Arkham franchise finale, Batman: Arkham Knight – it would have also won that for 2015. Turned out great other than the day 1 launch bugs for PC.
Also, Slay the Spire might deserve to be on a list as it was officially released in Jan 2019…Children of Morta, FarCry: New Dawn, Devil May Cry 5, The Division 2, Anthem, Dead or Alive 6, Anno 1800, Borderlands 3, The Outer Worlds…all may positively or negatively be highlighted in my future nominations.
Sidenote: I rarely include indie titles for awards consideration due to general lack of mass appeal, lack of polish, or lack of public awareness. However, if it meets those criteria and I am familiar enough with it, I am open to including it.
I have spoken.
