- Apex Legends
Apex legends is arguably one of the best releases of 2019. The game was released suddenly and was revealed just minutes before its release. The team-based battle royal was released out of blue and took the entire gaming world by storm.
What makes Apex legends a truly great game is the balls-to-the-walls gunplay. Skirmishes erupting into bullet storms, the use of 3v3s along with ping systems and powerful characters have amplified the game’s excitement levels to new heights. It goes without saying that Apex is on its way to becoming the top battle game in the market.
- A Plague Tale: Innocence
Released on May 14th by Asobo Studio, A Plague tale: Innocence offers a unique blend of action, adventure, stealth phases all mixed together in an original scenario. Set in 14th century France, the protagonist Amicia accompanied by her little brother hugo are trying to escape from the inquisition and black death terrorizing the French.
The game’s multidimensional game-play makes its stealth affair much more interesting. Mystic mazes, transcendental back and a whole lot of mysteries unfold as our orphans run from the terrifying Inquisition. As the game moves forward, our little heroes will face an even greater danger: supernatural swarms of rats that appeared with the great plague infecting across cities and countryside. Emotion, drama, adventure; the game has a little bit of everything.
Control is another Landmark project by Remedy Entertainment. The game is developed by RE and published by 505 games. As to say, the storyline is creepy and revolves around the Federal Bureau of Control (FBC), which is presented as a secret U.S. government agency assigned with the tasks to study phenomena that violate the laws of reality. The players get into the shoes of Jesse Faden – the agency’s new director and get to explore the Oldest House – the FBC’s paranormal New York headquarters to defeat a deadly enemy called HISS.
As with Remedy previous projects, Control too is placed from a third-person perspective. What makes Control a great game is the threads that keep unraveling as you move on. It’s a wild and mystical exploration of one of the world’s most haunted buildings, interconnected storytelling stimulating crash into the paranormal.

The game was released for Microsoft Windows, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The game is played from a third-person perspective and has received favorable reviews from the critics and the gaming community. In its 4.5/5 review, Games Radar+ wrote: “The Division 2 is a seriously accomplished looter-shooter, with a gameplay loop that keeps on giving, and an endgame that will keep you playing for months (or years) to come.
- The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening
Link’s awakening is a timeless Nintendo marvel. Nintendo has released the remake of the 1993 game for the Gameboy and it retains the original’s top-down perspective.
