It's finally (finally!) time to count down the very best video games of 2019, a weird and wonderful year for games that left us both with eclectic, surprising Top 10 lists that don’t look quite like any countdown we’ve done in years past.
After being delayed by Jonathan’s trip to Japan and our Best of the Decade episodes, it’s finally time for our annual countdown of the very best Video Games of the year. And it’s better late than never, because 2019 was a really interesting year for games, and both of us wound up with eclectic, surprising Top 10 lists that don’t look quite like any countdown we’ve done in years past, allowing us to go deep with some games we’ve never talked about before, and revisit favorites that were recurring podcast topics throughout the year. It’s a great conversation, and before that, we also break down two weeks’ worth of news, including some Dragon Ball announcements, a Platinum Games Kickstarter, and more news about the PS5, while Jonathan gives a quick review of the surprisingly good Sonic the Hedgehog movie, a fun and heartfelt film that ensures we’re having a good time talking about video games from the beginning to the end of one of the longest podcasts we’ve ever recorded.
Oh, and this is only Part 1. But you’ll have to listen through to the surprise cliffhanger at the very end to find out why. Enjoy!
