Games of 2019

1. Tetris Ultimate by SoMa Play [PS4]
More of the same, in a snazzy new graphical guise. I'll never tire of the falling blocks. Even after 33 years, I'd say it's still the best game on the Game Boy.

2. Grim Fandango Remastered
by Double Fine Productions [PS4]
I have never played the original 1998 release, but a friend of mine (Dimitri Sakelaropolus) hyped it ever since I met him in 2003. He says it's truly one of the best LucasArts adventure games. I gave this remastered version a go for a few hours, but soon lost interest. Hm. Needs a second try, I'd wager.

Honourable mention

Nintendo Labo by Nintendo [Switch]
Haven't played it, so no opinion as of now.
