Destructoid's award for Best Portable Game of 2019 goes to...

It's a bit fitting, isn't it, that Destructoid's final award for portable gaming should go to a developer well known for its support of video game devices long after they've been replaced. Over the last 12 calendar months, Atlus has given V...

Destructoid's award for Best Mobile Game of 2019 goes to...

I feel like we're running out of adjectives adequate enough to properly describe GRIS. When it released for PC and Switch in December of last year, it struck a chord with anyone willing to give it a shot, taking them on a journey through so...

Destructoid's award for Best PC Game of 2019 goes to...

Obsidian traded one wasteland for another, from the post-nuclear apocalypse to the intergalactic mess caused by mega-corporate mega-greed. Truth be told, Obsidian has never really had trouble diversifying. Obsidian has pulled out the best i...

Destructoid's award for Best PS4 Game of 2019 goes to...

The first time I beat Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, more than anything, I was relieved. I felt free. Difficulty is a near-endless talking point in conversations about From Software games, and everyone's had their say by now. It's a matter of p...

Destructoid's award for Best Xbox One Game of 2019 goes to...

All heaven, no hell. That's one vague way to describe Devil May Cry 5. There are so many more possible descriptions, each one ratcheting up the peculiarity and ridiculousness in step with the level of detail given. But pulling all the way b...

Destructoid's award for Best Switch Game of 2019 goes to...

I know, I know! As we discussed at length last December, we have an annual cutoff date for Game of the Year nominations of December 1. That's to prevent hasty choices where a project hasn't had enough time to marinate yet; to really sit in ...

Nominees for Destructoid's Final Best Portable Game

Dearly beloved. We are gathered here to celebrate this thing called handheld gaming. Since they first popped up on the scene in the late 1970s, portable gaming devices have allowed millions of people to enjoy a little bit of fun no matter w...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Mobile Game of 2019

Mobile gaming was difficult to get excited about at the beginning of 2019. Most of the titles I booted up in the first few months were hits from 2018 -- or Roller Coaster Tycoon Classic -- as everything new for the year just didn't sta...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Remaster/Remake of 2019

For some, the mere concept of a remaster or remake is dirty by design. For these critics, revisiting a title is often chided as a sign of creative bankruptcy, an affront to the game it replicates, or an easy exploitation of fan nostalgia. I...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Switch Game of 2019

It's been a wild year for the Switch: perhaps the best one yet. "The little portable console that could" completely dispelled the notion of financial failure from the Wii U era, and catapulted Nintendo back into the spotlight. As of today t...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best PC Game of 2019

We're at that point again where console players and PC players are divergent in their hopes for the future. Console folks are like astronauts strapped in and sitting on the launch pad, eager to blast off into the new worlds of PlayStation a...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Xbox One Game of 2019

This is...this is probably the last time we do this, right? At least, it's the last time we do it in this exact way. By December of next year, the Xbox Series X will have ushered in the next generation of Xbox, leaving our 2020 list as...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best PS4 Game of 2019

What a year it's been for PlayStation 4. What a year it's been period. Let's take a moment to reflect. As much as we're curious about PlayStation 5 and next-gen – is there any chance Sony can maintain its momentum? – there's no ...

Do you have a GOTY 2019 yet and why is it Devil May Cry V?

It's a tale as old as time, eternally retold. Halfway through the year, it's easy to look back on what we've played to date and possibly use it as a measuring stick against what we expect from the rest of the year. There are still major rel...

Chris Carter's personal picks for Game of the Year 2018

This was a weird year. I think I played the same amount of games I usually do (around 200) but I didn't necessarily have the time for as many long-form experiences as usual due to the appearance of our first kid. Still, a lot of games came ...

Marcel's favorite games of 2018, if they were JoJo Stands

Two years ago, I decided to gimmick up my annual Game of the Year list by comparing my choices for that year to JoJo Stands. Back then, I was a neophyte at JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and JoJo shitposting. But after two long years, I have beco...

Peter Glagowski names the Best and Worst of 2018

For the past few years on Destructoid, I've listed my top games of every year just like everyone else. It was a way for me to try and organize my thoughts in a manner that I figured everyone wanted to read. Truth be told, I'm not so sure ho...

Mike sounds off on his top gaming moments of 2018

2018 was a busy year for me. I managed to hold on to full-time employment, moved twice, and became more fully invested in my Gundam model kit hobby. As a result, my free time, as well as my free cash, was a lot more restricted than it was i...

kinda ironic given that activision was originally founded by a group that broke away from atari due to a toxic work environment, 40 years ago

That Weiss fight in FF7 Remake is straight BULLSHIT! All of his moves are super hard to dodge, he can heal his stagger meter, he has 3 different forms, and one move he has instantly kills Keep the Carbuncle summon on hand, you may need
