Games I Beat in 2019, Discussed


Hello friends! It's been awhile since I've written a blog. But I'm happy to take a moment and share with you the list of games I beat in 2019. I'm stealing taking inspiration from RocketKnight's Blog. Go check his out when you have a minute.

For my blog, I'll write a few (or sometimes just one) sentences about each game. I don't have time to write full reviews of each, and I'm sure you wouldn't have time to read them if I did. Many of these games did not release in 2019. I have beaten several of them before as well. Also, I played many other games, but did not beat them for myriad reasons. These are only games that I feel I have finished this year. Finally, they are not listed in any particular order. Let's go!

Ace Combat 5

Best story I've ever experienced in a game. Still holds up today. Game still looks great as well.

Ace Combat 7

Gorgeous game. Super thrilling at times. All around blast to play. Highly recommend. Only downside is the lack of a proper tutorial system for noobs.

Super Mario World

I beat it! I finally beat it! It was glorious! This game is just so perfect. The mechanics are so finely tuned. The art and music are timeless. 11/10

Best story in a mobile game. Awfully short though.

Donut County

Best non-Katamari Katamari game.

Image result for halo

Halo: Combat Evolved

Timeless masterpiece.

Halo 2

Can play as The Arbiter. 11/10.

Halo 3

Killing Scarabs never gets old. Perfection of Halo gameplay formula.

Halo: ODST

Most consistently good Halo game. Not a bad level in the game.

Halo: Reach

My least favorite Bungie Halo. Still a genuinely incredible FPS. Still has some of the most gorgeous skyboxes I've ever seen in a game.

Halo 4

LOL JK I didn't beat this are you kidding me this game sucks so hard!

Halo 5

Pointless and dumb. But somehow kind of fun in spite of that? For whatever that's worth?

Crackdown 3

Can play as Terry Crews. It's more Crackdown. Good times.

Image result for aladdin SNES


As fun today as it was when I was a kid. I love it.

Image result for abzu


Flower, but underwater. 10/10.

Image result for firewatch


Walking around. Mystery. Hot girl on radio. Good.

Image result for titanfall 2

Titanfall 2

BT-7274 for Smash! Titanfall 2 is the best FPS I've played since Reach. Actually, it's better than Reach. Probably best I've played since Halo 3. Play it if you haven't.

Image result for portal game


This was a triumph! I'm making a note here: "Huge Success!" It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.

Image result for phoenix wright

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

Take that! First time playing, it's great. Need to play the other 2 in the pack.

Image result for what remains of edith finch

What Remains of Edith Finch

Best house ever.

Image result for life is strange before the storm

Life is Strange: Before the Storm

Loved it. Gave me a glimpse into the life of a teenage girl that I'd never experienced before.

Life is Strange

Not nearly as good as BtS. Weird paranormal stuff. Dumb ending.

The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit


Image result for sunset overdrive

Sunset Overdrive

Great first attempt at open-world from Insomniac. Wish we had a sequel.

Image result for goof troop snes

Goof Troop

One of the best co-op games ever. I never tire of throwing barrels at my wife.

Image result for mario maker 2

Super Mario Maker 2

Endless. Mario. What more could you want? 

Image result for zelda master quest 3ds

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Master Quest

Must-play if you love Ocarina. It's on the 3DS version of Ocarina, so it's easily accessed. Great game.

Image result for the witcher 3

The Witcher 3

Best game of this generation, for my money. Incredible writing. Also, Blood and Wine is the best expansion to a game since The Shivering Isles.

Image result for mass effect

Mass Effect

Best Star Trek Game

Mass Effect 2

Unbridled masterpiece. 11/10.

Mass Effect 3

Yep, that ending still sucks. Time hasn't changed that.

Image result for link's awakening

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

Take my favorite 2D Zelda and give it massive quality of life improvements. 11/10.

Image result for gears of war mad world

Gears of War Ultimate Edition

Anytime another third person shooter doesn't play like Gears, it infuriates me. Y u no play like Gears???

Gears 5

Great fun. Good twists to the story. Jack is awesome. Matriarch is bullshit.

Image result for destiny 2 osiris

Destiny 2

Mechanically excellent. Story still isn't very interesting, though the world is cool. Osiris is a cool character.

Image result for tacoma game


Spaaaaaaaaaaace! I'm in space! Good game.

Image result for the outer worlds

The Outer Worlds

Exactly what I wanted it to be. Fun space RPG. Good writing. Parvati is best girl.

Image result for spec ops the line

Spec Ops: The Line

The game is quite an experience. If you haven't played it, play it now and go in as blind as you can. Definitely left an impact on me.

Image result for lonely mountains downhill

Lonely Mountains: Downhill

When it clicks, it's pure bliss. Probably most underrated game of the year.

Image result for half life 2

Half-Life 2

Very good game. Gravity gun is pretty neat.

Half-Life 2: Episode One

Alyx is bae, but Episode One is kinda dumb and pointless. Very skippable.

Half-Life 2: Episode Two

Much better than Episode One. Great gameplay. That cliffhanger ending still breaks my heart and infuriates me.

Image result for the talos principle

The Talos Principle

Best non-Portal Portal game.

So that's it! All the games I beat this year! Unless I forgot to write some down, which is highly probable. What do you think about them? Share your thoughts on them or ask me questions about them. What did you beat this year? Let me know or (better yet) write your own blog and tell all of us!
