The Best Fighting Game of 2019
This category is pretty self-explanatory, as we are looking for the best game about beating the crap out of your opponent. 2019 had a good mixture of sequels and new IPs in the fighting genre, and we had fun picking out our favorite.
- Mortal Kombat 11 (All Major Consoles)
- Jump Force (PC, Xbox One, PS4)
- Soul Calibur VI (PC, Xbox One, PS4)

The Best Shooting Game of 2019
While this list of nominees contains its fair share of first-person shooters, we included all of the gun-focused games of 2019 on this list. In the last few years, the shooter genre has shifted further towards the competitive online scene and further away from the single-player campaign, but the nominees on this list had a great mixture of both. Whether they nailed the hectic nature of competitive gunfights or laid out well-designed missions of shooting mayhem, these were the shooting games that we appreciated the most in 2019.
- Apex Legends (PC, Xbox One, PS4)
- Far Cry: New Dawn (PC, Xbox One, PS4)
- Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 (PC, Xbox One, PS4)
- Blood & Truth (PSVR)
- Wolfenstein: YoungBlood (PC, Xbox One, PS4)
- Gears of War 5 (PC, Xbox One)
- Borderlands 3 (PC, Xbox One, PS4)
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (PC, Xbox One, PS4)
