It has felt very long to me because I haven't wanted to play it. But since I may never get to return to Ring Fit Adventure because my knee is CINECAST!ed and I'm probably due for another surgery, I guess I should get back to it.

I'm still playing through Disco Elysium and Baba is You. I haven't played a ton of 2019 games but there are at least three games from this year I'd now call personal favorites which I think is pretty good for any year.

Fire Embs is probs the best of 2019.

I am on board with that. No other 2019 game let me have a lesbian marriage. Note, I played exactly 5 games from 2019 so there may actually be a lot of games that could have met that criterion.

Got the Nintendo Switch:

- Mario Kart 8 is boring. The series peaked with 64. Everything since has been a steady decline.
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is everything everyone hyped up it would be, for better and (surprisingly) for worse. I almost wish the world was smaller. Almost.
- Fire Emblem: Three Houses is a lot of fun. It might be the best Fire Emblem game yet.
- Untitled Goose Game oscillates a lot between relaxing fun and genuinely challenging timing puzzle games. I cannot wait for a sequel.

Fire Embs is probs the best of 2019.

I'm a longtime FE fan, and I love the gameplay, teacher sim for training, social aspects. It's a leap forward in a lot of ways.

However, I just finished the Black Eagle story line, and if that were a movie, it'd have like a 0% on RT. I love the strange mixture of characters and motivations, but it is the laziest resolution of crucial plot points in any story-based thing I've ever experienced. I couldn't believe it when the credits rolled.

I had to get that off my chest somewhere. Of course, I am back in the saddle, guiding Claude and the Golden Deer now.

I see Sam giving Outer Wilds a GOTY nod. I think that's next on my list.

I do wish it was more challenging/had more variety in mission types, but is still great. Outer Wilds is also up there for me.

I know we got some Switch gamers here, soooooo....anyone played Astral Chain? I'm curious about it, haven't pulled the trigger. Love Nier:Automata, think Bayonetta is kickass even though it kicks my ass, so I'm down with Platinum Games. So...anyone?
