10 games I’m looking forward to play in 2019

With no big releases this month, it feels fair that I can turn my attention to 2019 already — and the games that are supposedly coming with it. Here’s a quick list of 10 games that I’m looking forward to playing (but by no means are these the only titles I’m watching!):

1. Torchlight Frontiers

I’m really starting to feel excitement grow for this MMOARPG. If they can get the combat and progression just right, this could be a perfect “I have 20 minutes, what game should I play?” choice. Plus, player housing!

2. The Outer Worlds

Obsidian really turned some heads with this game reveal, and my neck is cranked around with the rest of the crowd. A sprawling galactic RPG set in a corporate-dominated universe where you have to take sides with one is pretty intriguing, and I love the Fallout vibe and the dark sense of humor that this game promises.

3. Project Gorgon

I keep holding off from really diving into this with the hopes that it’ll officially launch and I won’t have to worry about any sort of wipe. With any luck, 2019 will be the year this’ll happen. I don’t want my enthusiasm to peter out over this!

4. Among Trees

What looks to be a mix between The Long Dark and Firewatch, Among Trees promises a survival sandbox set in a gorgeous-looking forest environment. As long as it’s not too hardcore brutal, I’m down to play it.

5. Wasteland 3

Even though I haven’t played the second Wasteland yet, I’m psyched for the third, which takes the action to post-apocalyptic Colorado. There’s some base building and multiplayer, which is nice, but I’m more into the visuals and setting here.

6. Cyberpunk 2077

Who isn’t excited for CD Projekt Red’s scifi RPG? Count me among the throng of people drooling to play this high-tech cyberpunk title with lots of body modification and a scary exciting city to explore.

7. Psychonauts 2

Never really thought this action-adventure game would get a sequel, but it is, and I will be playing it. Psychonauts was so… odd… that it became this cult favorite, and I definitely agree that there was a lot of room for more adventures.

8. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

A spiritual successor to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night? I am so there.

9. In the Valley of the Gods

The fact that this is the sophomore follow-up from the Firewatch team puts this on my radar. Hoping it’ll be just as involving.

10. FFXIV: Shadowbringers

There’s no assurance that I will still be playing FFXIV when the third expansion hits, but I’m always happy to see MMOs get expansions period, and it’s fun to see the community vibrating with joy over the coming of this one.

  1. Project Gorgon seems to be doing good things. I might do WoW Classic just to revisit, not paying $18.99 a month for an ancient game though. $10 dollars is the most I will pay for a game over 10 years old. Hopefully there will be some WoW classic only package.

  2. There aren’t a lot of games coming in 2019 that I’m really eager to play, but there are a number of things on my radar. My #1 most wanted game for 2019 is probably Twin Mirror, largely because I’m interested in anything Dontnod does at this point. I definitely want to play The Division 2, but that’s something I may want to wait for a Steam sale before buying. I’m lukewarm on Anthem, but it’s Bioware, so I’ll probably play it. I also had my interest piqued by the Outer Worlds trailer; the humour gives me kind of a No One Lives Forever vibe.

  3. I’ll be reading about these games and if any of them turn out to be good, I join. But I got burned in so many hypes before that I won’t jump on any more game launches ever in my life.
