Default Ars Technica's best games of 2019

I haven't looked up if all these are available on PC, but this seemed as good a place as any fwiw. I haven't even played the majority of them but I was glad to see my current favorite on the list even as low as #19.

I think all apart from 4 (Which are either switch or iOS) are available for the pc. I have played a couple and own (I think) 7. Thinking of picking up disco elysium which after the $5 coupon from token collection will be about a couple of dollars (regional pricing)

Something is bothering me about the GOTY lists I'm seeing pop up on different websites, namely that at least half the entries have gotten very, very little press throughout the year, and most of the entries have gotten very few people talking about them on Reddit or forums.

Before this week, I've never heard of Sayonara Wild Hearts, Neo Cab or Hypnospace Outlaw. I'm not sure about Dicey Dungeons or Grindstone. Same goes for one of Eurogamer's picks, A Short Hike.

If these games are so awesome, then how come the websites, forums and reddits have all been gushing over Star Wars, Destiny, more Apex and Fortnite and Minecraft and Halo, Red Dead, Call of Duty, Youngblood, Sekiro and Death Stranding? I know I've been feeling like 2019 lacked big hits that were actually awesome, and it's clear to see why that is: most awesome games have been the smaller, under-the-radar, indie type efforts. But somehow, those aren't the games I see popping up all over the place.

Thoughts?

My thoughts on the #2 on the list, Disco Elysium:

Finished Disco Elysium, (an RPG with 'dialogue gameplay' similar to old school rpgs like planescape torment) in about 40 hours. It's very well written, (possibly the best writing in any game this decade?). Every single facet of the game, the characters, the fictional world, the buildings, the factions etc have an immense and in-depth back story to unravel or optionally learn about. It's extremely impressive the amount of depth packed into such a small slice of a fictional city.

There is no combat, the entire game is experienced through dialogue, exploration, solving tasks, and learning/reading new information. Information is your weapon here, as it will help you navigate through the ocean of dialogue being thrown at you, with its twists and turns (and hundreds of dialogue skill checks). Unlike other games, failing a dialogue skill check is not necessarily a bad outcome, as it might open up completely new dialogue and gameplay paths. It's intended.

I'm quite glad I picked this game up and went in completely blind. Only criticisms I have is the lack of fast travel (coming down to the end, some of the backtracking was tedious) and somewhat clunky movement (they should patch in a 'hold down mouse button to move' option). It's not a game for everyone, especially not for those who don't like reading dialogue or need combat in their games.

Because, like Hollywood releases, you'll often find that marketing is half the budget. Smaller studios cannot afford to advertise, it's that simple. People cannot discuss what they don't know exists.

I hated control, and is one of the few games I uninstalled without completing. I don't think I will reinstall it again for quite a while. This is strange as I found previous Remedy games to be excellent.

However, giving it no 1 place is not justified I think.

Metro Exodus was a tight game. Have played almost half of the games on that list apart from Indie crap and Souls crap.

Disco Elysium is the first game to recapture that feeling of the first time I played Planescape Torment, much more so than the new Torment game did.
