2019 is hitting the last bump, and you know what that means: it’s time to look back and choose the best games of the year. On this occasion, we will focus on one particular genre, and one of the most popular: action and adventure (okay, there are two, but it is understood). And the truth is that taking a look at the past three hundred and sixty-something days, it’s been an excellent year for fans of this kind of title.
It is curious to take a look at the beginning of the year, when we published the report on the best adventures of 2019, and to see that indeed many have managed to get on the list, although there are also some notable absences. Or games that have not been released directly in 2019. Despite this, it cannot be denied that it has been a great year for action and adventure, with high-quality titles that we will remember for a long time.
- Gears 5
With a technical section of scandal, countless playable novelties and a horde mode that is pure vice, Gears 5 have become one of the games we have enjoyed most this year, as well as our favorite delivery of the Gears of War saga. The trip of Kait Diaz, the protagonist on this occasion, is one of those that hardly forget, and we are not able to expect thinking about the next one prepared by the good people of the Coalition. We’ll leave you our analysis in case you have any questions.
- Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
Software is without too many problems one of the most successful studios of all time. There were people convinced that they were only able to do Dark Souls (as if that were easy), but with Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has proven to be able to reinvent themselves and offer something very different, with a quality that very few can aspire to. It has become clear that everything from Software does is terrible. Because after playing Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, no other action game with swords is going to get us” filled ” the same way.
- Death Stranding
In reality, it is difficult to tell which genre Death Stranding belongs to: is it a game of action and adventure?? Is it a walking simulator? What is a Social Strand Game? Is this a graphic novel with a touch of a dating simulator? What is clear is that Kojima has done it again: either you love her, or you hate him. And look where you are, we love him. We would never have imagined that a game that consists of running errands could give us so much joy, but here we are, preparing for our next installment, hoping to be rewarded with hundreds of thousands of likes.
- Devil May Cry 5
After several years in what seemed to Capcom not very clear what to do with The Devil May Cry saga, the Japanese company arrives and gets out of The Devil May Cry 5 manga. Go to the beginning of the year can do that has been hidden in front of recent releases, but let’s not forget that the adventure of Nero, Dante, and V is, at the level of mechanics, the explosive hack n slash more complicated and exquisite that has ever designed (or so they say in the analysis of Hobby Consoles). And well, you know, bang, bang, bang, pull my Devil Trigger and all that.
