- Return of the Obra Dinn - Very unique artstyle and game concept. A true detective game that tells its story beautifully with great voice acting. The only game this year that was so good that I had to force myself to stop playing it.
- Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion - Perfect Expansion for a great game.
- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - The biggest and best Smash yet. It is just fun to play. The spirit fights are often really clever and compelling. There is so much to do in it and I haven't even had the opportunity yet to play it with friends. Although, I still haven't unlocked every character.
- CrossCode - It is very reminiscent of the old SNES RPGs, but with some modern touches and Story tied to MMOs. I played it in early access and not since full release, but it hit very close to my nostalgia so it is on my list.
- Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon - A new old Castlevania game. It looks and feels just like an NES game. I'm a sucker for those when they are well done. And this is really well done. This game alone made it already worthwhile for me to have backed Bloodstained. Hope the big game is going to be of similar quality.
- Octopath Traveler - Beautiful game in all regards. I really like the look and the battle system is not super boring. The stories, even though I'm not yet through them, are quite interesting. I'm not a big fan of JRPG combat, but this was compelling enough to make me look past that flaw.
- Fortnite: Battle Royale - I tried it when it came out on the Switch and I played it a lot since then. I'm starting to get over it, but I can't deny having fun with it, so it gets a vote.
- Destiny 2: Forsaken - Never thought I would ever play or like Destiny. Gifting the base game to Blizzard players got at least one person to buy into the expansion and enjoy it. Never knew how good a triple jump feels in an FPS.
- Megaman 11 - Huge Megaman fan. And this game did not suck, but I'm not in on the hype either.
- Dead Cells - Played it a bit. It's nice and I have a spot left.
