15. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
Like the Souls games, this ninja game is played in third-person, and has a focus on combat. There are plenty of otherworldly creatures here as you might expect, as well as human opponents. Also, the fact that protagonist Sekiro has a voice will allow FromSoftware to deliver a more involved story this time around, although the complete lack of multiplayer options might disappoint some. Nonetheless, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice could still be Game of the Year material thanks to its exotic Japan setting, exciting action and Miyazaki’s magic touch no doubt.
Release date: March 22, 2019. Available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
