3 Up, 3 Down – October 2019
As November settles in just before the holiday rush, we take a look back at the best and worst games of October 2019. With September highlighted by The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening and lowlighted by The Sinking City, October 2019 hopes to do a bit better. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the three best and worst games on October 2019.
Having gone relatively under the radar, Concrete Genie emerged as one of COGconnected’s best games of October 2019. Following the adventures of a bullied teen armed with a magical paintbrush, Concrete Genie’s heartwarming journey really stands out. In our review, we noted that the game is “a short, steel rail line, but one that leads directly to halcyon summers and lingering sorrow.”
Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair
Although the original Yooka-Laylee had its fair share of issues, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair has seemingly pushed the franchise toward a different gameplay style with great success. Now reinvented as a side-scrolling platformer in this iteration, its soundtrack and general gameplay loop has made it successful. In our review, we noted that “With charm, wit, and brimming with positivity, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is a fantastic new direction for Playtonics dynamic duo”.
The Outer Worlds
As part of perhaps the best deal in video games (Xbox Game Pass), The Outer Worlds looks to bring players back to the classic RPG style its developer, Obsidian Entertainment, is known for. Yes that’s right, the developers behind Fallout: New Vegas bring the latest single-player RPG that could be described as a more concise, “Fallout-style” RPG. In our review, we noted that “The Outer Worlds fulfills the promise every other RPG makes of putting you in control”.
