Tarzanslam's Top 10 Games Played in 2019


published on December 2, 2019


Once again this was another off year for me as far as getting to play many games. Work and family obligations have kept me from getting too deep into my library of games. Things are easing up at work so hopefully next year I'll be able to tackle some more games. Here are my top 10 of 2019

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (2019)

My personal 2019 Game of the Year is the new Link's Awakening! Link's Awakening has been a great little blast from the past. I had the original when I was a kid and loved it then. It's just as difficult as it was back then. It's been fun playing this while my 6 year old watches and cheers me on. If you enjoy Zelda and have or have not played the original on the Game Boy then pick this up!!

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

I'm so glad I picked this game up. I had never played it before but heard the music many times on the VGM streams I listen to. This is such a good funny game that really gets you thinking. This is one of the few games I actually beat this year.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

As much as I enjoy the Zelda series, prior to this year I never played Link Between Worlds. As of right now I'm about half way through the game and it's a great throwback to LTTP with a lot of new dungeons. This is definitely worth it if you have a 3DS.

Octopath Traveler

I'm not very far into this one at all but I'm really having a good time with it so far. I love the classic JRPG feel of this game. The music is great and the battle system is superb.

Professor Layton and the Curious Village

This is another game I picked up because of the music. It's a fun little puzzle game. I was able to solve almost all of the puzzles without cheating :) This was another one of the few games that I actually beat this year.

Tetris 99

I've put many hours into this game so far and I still haven't gotten 1st place yet. You can't much better than Tetris battle royal.

Guild Wars 2

I've had this game in my backlog for a very long time and I finally busted it out last week and can't wait to dive in deeper. I played the original Guild Wars and it is one of my all time favorites. This will probably end up on next year's list and much higher.

Luigi's Mansion 3

A great addition to the Luigi's Mansion franchise! This game is just as fun as the original Luigi's Mansion.

Paper Mario: Color Splash

This is another game I'm playing so my son can enjoy watching his favorite Nintendo characters. The game isn't bad. I'm about half way through and the story is interesting enough to keep my attention.

Untitled Goose Game

This is a hilarious little indie game that quite simple yet very enjoyable.
