List Rules Only games released in 2019.

2019 is already shaping up to be another stellar year full of amazing new games, but which is the absolute best one of them all? So far, we’ve already seen the release of the highly anticipated Tom Clancy's The Division 2, which continues the story from its predecessor by throwing players into the ruins of Washington D.C. in a fight to save what remains of humanity from the horrible virus engineered and released in the first game. Other titles like Onimusha: Warlords and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe are revamped ports of older titles made available on newer consoles for a whole new generation of players. And then there are unanimously acclaimed games like Metro Exodus and Days Gone.

Fans of Disney characters will love Kingdom Hearts III, the newest game in the popular franchise that lets players team up with Goofy, Mickey Mouse, and the rest of the Disney gang to solve puzzles, beat up bad guys, and save the universe!

Vote up the best video games in 2019, and check back for updates as other top titles are released throughout the year.
