Metacritic Releases List of 2019’s Highest-Rated Multiplatform Games and Exclusives by Platform

Following the release of this decade’s top 50 games and 2019’s highest-rated games overall, Metacritic has published a list of best multiplatform games and exclusives by platform.

Before we get to the list, Metacritic noted that as we near the end of the current-gen console cycle, the website saw only nine titles with a metascore of 90 or higher compared to 17 in 2018. Interestingly, for the first time since 2016, no game scored above 93.

A number of 2019’s top-rated games were actually ports or re-releases. FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice ranks at an overall no. 4 but in terms of actual new releases, it was the highest-rated title of 2019.

Without further ado, here’s the list:

PlayStation 4

Exclusive of the Year: MLB The Show 19 (86)

Xbox One
