By the time the year draws to a close and we sit back and try to work out our GOTY votes we often forget what we might have played way back in March and if we enjoyed it or not. This thread will serve as a refresher for that time. Time to think about what you have played in the first half of 2019 and your favourite games so far. Maybe also share what you're looking forward to this year.

So far we've had some pretty big titles out; Metro Exodus, Sekiro, Division 2, Rage 2, Anthem, Devil May Cry 5, Apex Legends, Crackdown 3, Total War: Three Kingdoms, just to name some of the bigger ones.

What have you enjoyed so far? Biggest disappointment? What are you looking forward to?

Metro Exodus is my standout so far. Anthem was easily the biggest disappointment and I can't go past Borderlands 3 as something I'm looking forward to most so far.

I've only played Sekiro which was released this year, and that was only for a few hours.
Liked it, but wanted to play something different, so will come back to it.

So either Dead Cells, Nioh, Nier, Celeste or FrostPunk are my GOTY :)

Am looking forward to Borderlands and I'll probably get Pokemon, haven't played one since Yellow, but think I'll jump back in.

Bit of a crappy year really, which is OK for me to get through the backlog before next gen.

I wonder if Days Gone will find a way to a high placing somehow?

Haven't played too many of this years big releases, but I reckon Borderlands 3, Doom Eternal, and The Outer Worlds will be up there by the end of the year.

Played a few game so far but haven't found anything that will be my game of the year so far.

The second half of the year looks a lot stronger especially from Nintendo.

Poor year so far 2019. Last year won't be topped for a while unfortunately.

Haven't played a single game released this year. Guessing Cyberpunk will be the GOTY if it comes out this year.

Looking forward to Borderlands. Wish there was another Saints Row or GTA game on the horizon.

Resident Evil 2 has been the standout to me. Really good game which delivers the atmosphere you want from a traditional RE game.

That said I haven't played too many games released this year. Kingdom Hearts 3 left a positive impression but I backlogged it while I worked through RDR2.

I haven't played many 2019 releases but Rage 2 is the best I've played thus far. I really only play FPS these days, and I predict that either Modern Warfare, or Doom Eternal will be GOTY for me personally. We've also got Insurgency: Sandstorm coming to console this year, which could be another contender.
