    4:35 it's just the H.A.W.X. series(1 and 2) but a little bit better or maybe a lot better the planes are exactly the same and the user interface of the air plane (like alt and speed, etc.) are just like H.A.W.X. but again a little bit better.

    People playing Destiny are sad individuals , the game has no purpose the only one is trying to get you money from a credit card...sad , get some real games

    "great Souls-like game" That's a logical fallacy. Souls-like games, as well as the Souls series itself, aren't even good games.

      "Wonderful community" being used to describe an aspect of multiplayer games is also a logical fallacy. Multiplayer game communities are nothing but toxic environments full of crass and impolite people who regularly insult others and perform actions with the intent to cause others grief and unnecessary stress.

    Why do reviewers keep trying to make No Man's Sky and Destiny 2 a thing years after the fail launch.

    Hope there will be a space game where you build an empire, its kind of survival at first then you meet npc conquer the world then move on to other planets.

    So few people mention the SCP foundation when talking about Control, which i feel mirrors a lot of its lore and mechanics from.

    Risk of rain 2 should have been high on the list but it wasn't on there. Ror2 is a massively underrated game

    I can't believe Destiny 2 is free now. I dont have to use my disc anymore. But downside is I cant play the content I paid for.

    I wanted to get No Mans Sky when it came out for xbox, I'm glad I waited until the next few weeks to get it.

    First person or third person shooters don't qualify as "sci-fi"; therefore, most games on this list were not sci-fi.

    First one looks crap, definitely made by amateurs.

    I LOVED Control and I really hope they expand on that universe. One thing though, the checkpoint system was needlessly frustrating, put checkpoints on bosses and it will be perfect.

    It's weird that more and more games have female main characters now

    I still find it amusing, when looking at Crackdown III and think about, the most powerful console yet together with the power of the cloud.

    Number 15: what LOFTY EXPECTATIONS!?? They overpromise underdeliver and gameranx is like "it was the fans fault for getting hype"🙄😒

    3:55 No you didn’t, i played it, that game fecking sucked, i wont get into why because i don’t want to subject you to a 3 page essay, but i will say it’s nothing about the concepts, everything that made that game bad can be completely fixed while still not changing it away from being the surge, so i do plan to give the sequel a try.

    1:16 rip XB1 and Switch. 100% confirmed that Gameranx doesn’t consider them to be “major platforms.”

    I would love to have an massive open world Mechwarrior game, kind'a like Skyrim or GTA but with mechs that you ride in 1st POV like Mechwarrior 2.

    "No mans sky didn't quite meet expectations" that is the biggest the understatement of 2019 lol

    That screen tearing in the EDF5 footage at the start of your video is offputting. Turn on vsync or get a modern screen please. It's also super-blurry at 1080p.

    Control deserves top billing. It's fantastic and needs more exposure

    I've been playing MOBILE SUIT GRANDAM: BATTLE OPERATION 2. It's a bit of an acquired taste, a bit slower than some. But it's methodical in it's motions, kind of like Chrome Hounds was.

    Really don't know why you guys are putting games on here that haven't even released yet. You don't know if they're among the TOP new games of 2019.
