10. Need for Speed: Heat

Developer: Ghost Games

Coming in at the number 10 spot on our list is the latest installment in the 25-year-old franchise. Need for Speed Heat hit the shelves back in November and its graphics, sound, and customisation are all top-notch.

This is a fun game and is much like the Fast and Furious films it takes inspiration from; flashy, good-looking and a fun, cheesy campaign.

9. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Developer: Respawn Entertainment

Set five years after Revenge Of The Sith, the game’s protagonist Cal Kestis is a young ex-Padawan forced from hiding who only narrowly escapes capture in the opening gambit.

Fallen Order truly feels like Star Wars, with the sound department killing it and the visuals really putting you into the gritty nature of The Empire. 

It is fun to play and challenging even to some hardened gamers at the higher difficulty levels!


Developer: Codemasters

The second racer in our list, GRID is a fantastic racing game, with a wide range of cars, locations, and circuit routes, which means you aren’t likely to get bored with it any time soon. The racing experience is truly unlike any other too.

7. FIFA 20

Developer: Electronic Arts (EA)

Due to its popularity, EA’s football title was always going end up on this top 10 list somewhere. This year’s game has brought with it a refurbished Career Mode, allowing for manager customisation and dynamic team morale.

In addition, Ultimate Team has been diversified with new features such as First Owner Objectives, bringing a new twist to the online game mode. Also, EA’s new street football mode, VOLTA, makes up a very well rounded game, that has something for all football fans.

Developer: Codemasters, Swordfish Studios

F1 2019 was released back in June with rave reviews from both the fans and critics alike. It’s generally accepted that this year’s game is one of the best, if not the best in the ten years since Codemasters began developing the franchise.

The game’s inclusion of driver transfers, antagonistic rivalries and a superb driving experience makes this game an unquestionable hit.
