Posted under video, top 10


2019 has been a great year for games, it was a struggle to narrow this list down to just 10 of the 31 releases I played this year. But I did it. Here are my top 10 games of 2019.

If anyone's interested, here are all the 2019 releases I played (didn't necessarily finish them all though):

The 7th Guest was developed by Trilobyte and released for PC on April 1st 1993. It's an adventure game that focuses almost entirely on puzzles and uses live action video clips to tell the story as you progress. The game has an interesting development history and is notable for its place in pushing PC video game technology forward. This video takes a look at that history, the legacy of the game and how it holds up today.

Today I'm looking at DuckTales! It's got an interesting history, from the creation of the Scrooge McDuck character, to a partnership between Disney and Capcom, similarities to Mega Man and changes made by Disney producers. Here's some history of the game along with my thoughts on how it plays.

The Three Stooges is a show I used to watch with my Dad when I was a kid. I remember it ran on Sunday mornings on a local channel called The New VR. I always got a chuckle out of the pratfalls and low-brow comedy. What happens when you try to bring a comedy show to the NES? Is it still funny? Can a proper game be made out of it? Watch to find out.

Today I'm reviewing an NES game that was originally supposed to be an adaptation of The Terminator. The gameplay is reminiscent of Mega Man (though many feel Contra is a better comparison - I disagree) and uses many designs that seem to borrow from popular sci-fi properties.

Today I'm reviewing one of the game adaptations of Aladdin - this one is for Sega Genesis, can is completely different than the SNES version. Why didn't I think of this closer to when the new movie was released? That's a good question.

The Dig is a notable game not just for its story of exploration of alien worlds and beautiful visuals, but also because of the story behind how it got made. This is that story, 6 years of development, 4 project leads, Hollywood director and all.

If you were to ask me, in 1998, what some of my favorite things were The X-Files and FMV would surely come up. So when this game released it was the number one thing on my Christmas list. I loved following the extraterrestrial adventures of Scully and Mulder. Though this game doesn't let you play as them it makes you feel like them. The supporting characters are all there and you even get a partner to question all your decisions.

Does The X-Files game succeed as a playable episode of the show? Watch to find out.

Jackie Chan has starred in a few video games over the years. After Hudson Soft purchased the licence to use his likeness, they released Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu on NES.

Sine Mora was developed by Digital Reality and Grasshopper Manufacture and first released in 2012. In 2017 an extended version was released which is available on PC, PS4, Switch and XBox One. It is a horizontal 2.5D shooter, which means the plane you control moves on 2 axes, while the backgrounds are 3D. The game has gorgeous environments, uses some novel time-based mechanics and has a heavy focus on story. However, I found a heavy story in a scrolling shooter wasn't that welcome of a feature. Check out the video for more.

The Sega CD, though not a console I ever had or played as a kid, has become one of my favourites as I've expanded my knowledge of retro games. Its library is fairly small - 159 NA releases - and it consists of a lot of FMV games, movie adaptations, some great RPGs and standout adventure titles like Snatcher.

Here's a look at my collection of Sega CD games as well as a look at the console I play them on, the JVC X'Eye.

Summer Carnival '92 RECCA is an impressive shoot'em up. As I played it, I wanted to know more about the Summer Caravan that spawned it. So here's a bit about summer gaming competitions, including Hudson Soft's All-Japan Summer Carnival and Naxat's Summer Caravan. Plus a review of RECCA.

2018 was another good year for gaming, with a lot of big, highly anticipated released like Red Dead 2, God of War, and Spider-man... none of which I was interested in playing. Here are my favorites of the year; they're mostly smaller, less well-known games, but all of them are excellent!

Thanks to companies like Limited Run, some forgotten games have been getting attention lately... whether they deserve it or not. The 25th anniversary remaster of Double Switch was released recently - a release I can't imagine too many people asked for. Originally developed by Digital Pictures, this is the spiritual successor to Night Trap. It contains the same design flaws of Night Trap, plus a few new ones, but lacks the historical  controversy to make it interesting. Here are my thoughts on the game.

Halloween is over, but scary video games never go out of season. Through the years, games have scared me in many ways - there are creepy atmospheres, horrifying monsters, existential dread, and jump scares. Here's a look at 7 moments in video games that have scared, startled, or terrified me the most.

What are some of the moments that have scared you the most?
