Resident Evil 2 - £16.85 from ShopTo
This remake of a PSOne classic might just be one of the best-looking games of 2019 - and also happens to be one of the scariest. It's a faithful retelling in some ways, while also changing plenty - and is one of the year's best.
FIFA 20 - £39.85 from ShopTo
EA Sports’ latest football sim is as compelling as ever, adding a new street football mode to an already impressive number of match types - including the life-absorbing Ultimate Team.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - £44.95 from TheGameCollection
Rebooting the franchise’s most famous (and popular) entry was a risk, but Modern Warfare offers the best Call of Duty title in a decade - both in terms of campaign and multiplayer.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice - £24.95 from TheGameCollection
If your loved one is looking for a challenge, Sekiro offers one of the year’s toughest (and most rewarding) experiences. It takes place in a magical version of the Sengoku period of Japanese history, offering some beautiful visuals and haunting enemies.
Death Stranding - £49.85 at ShopTo
Hideo Kojima may have created Metal Gear Solid, but his PlayStation 4 exclusive is one of the most technically impressive games this year - it’s weird, but it’s also brilliant.
Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order - £46.85 from ShopTo
Who hasn’t dreamt of spinning a lightsaber? This original Star Wars story is set between Episodes 3 and 4 and offers tough combat and puzzle-solving across multiple planets.
Days Gone - £32.95 from TheGameCollection
Another PS4 exclusive, Days Gone sees players fight to survive the zombie apocalypse as a gruff biker. The game even won an award for best storytelling at the Golden Joysticks.
Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled - £29.85 from ShopTo
A remaster of the PlayStation original, but stuffed full of extra content, Crash Team Racing is one of the finest multiplayer experiences of this generation
