Despite the looming shadow of next-generation consoles, this year has impressed us with a wonderful suite of top-tier games, including Sekiro, Resident Evil 2 Remake, Fire Emblem: Awakening, and more. And more likely than not, the coming fall games season is sure to please with highly-anticipated games like Death Stranding, Control, and Gears 5. While we’re in the thick of a fantastic year in games, there are a lot more coming just in the first few months of 2020.
