9. Untitled Goose Game
Is it flashy? No. Does it have even one-tenth the budget of the other major studio releases on this list? Probably not. Does it let you wreak havoc on an unsuspecting idyllic village as a horrible goose? Absolutely. House House’s upcoming “slapstick-stealth-sandbox” title seems to share some digital DNA with 2014’s Goat Simulatorwhen it comes to creature-based chaos, but given the genre of ‘unhinged barnyard nonsense’ is still, somehow, a sparsely populated one, this is shaping up to be one of 2019’s most original and no doubt hilarious games. Perhaps bizarrely, the developers cite Super Mario 64 as an inspiration, so we can’t wait to see how this one shapes up.
