The Top Video Games of 2019

It’s hard to repeat an amazing year like last when it comes to video games. That said, it’s really shown to be an exciting 2019 as well! The industry’s most talented voices continue to upend the norms and make thrilling games that everyone loves. Even 2020 is shaping up to be quite exciting. If highly anticipated releases like Cyberpunk 2077, Link’s Awakening, and The Last of Us Part II aren’t enough to get you excited, below are a few more of our favorite picks for the top video games of 2019.

We’ll go through each game with a short summary and why you should be pumped to play them at the next Game Truck party with your friends! Read on and enjoy the video game breakdowns:

Cadence Of Hyrule

Release date: June 13 (Switch)
Cadence Of Hyrule is an up-and-coming game, similar to A Link To The Past and Breath of the Wild, and it’s a great mix of these two far-off worlds. It features a Zelda scroller along with synth-style music, and all the classic action of an RPG and chock full of super-cute Wolfos, Lynels, and Gibdos (what could be better!). Every sprite, puzzle, slap of the bass and adorbs nod to the Crypt of the Necrodancer reinforces the charms of Hyrule. If you haven’t tried out this exciting game, it’s time to consider adding it to your video game collection. The verdict: this 2D spinoff is a great option for gamers everywhere.

Pokemon Sword and Shield

Release date: November 15 (Switch)

Pokemon Sword and Shield is a role-playing game made especially for the Nintendo Switch. Users seem to really enjoy this game and say it’s a great amount of fun. Just released a few days ago (November 15th), this highly anticipated game for Pokemon fans is growing in popularity. Developed by Game Freak, this game is sure to offer hours of fun, exciting game play for fans of the original game.

Super Mario Brothers U Deluxe (Nintendo Switch)

Release date: January 10 (Switch)

What could be better than this classic game with a twist for Nintendo Switch? Starting out as a very simple platform game, Super Mario Brothers has been around for ages. And even though this game has undergone different versions over the years, the classic look and feel of the game is still appreciated and loved by gamers of all ages today. Nintendo keeps making it better and better, with classics just like Mario Kart 8, Super Mario Odyssey, and of course, U Deluxe for Nintendo Swtcih. That’s why Super Mario Brothers makes our top pick for new versions of this incredible game for 2019.

Consider Game Truck For Your Fall Festival

It’s nearly fall, ya’ll! If you’re like the team at Game Truck, you are probably very excited for cooler temperatures, cozy sweaters and of course, tasty pumpkin flavored goods. One of the most exhilarating parts of this season is celebrating the holidays with friends, family, and coworkers. From Halloween to Thanksgiving (and celebrations in between), the change in weather and turn of the season is a great time to get together and make lasting memories.

Fall is also a great time of year to plan a festival! If you happen to work for an organization (such as a church, school or non-profit), you likely have a lot of fun (and a lot of work!) ahead of you. Luckily, the weather is in your favor and you can include many exciting fall elements, such as costume contests and bobbing for apples. You can also hire vendors that make your job easier and your event even more exciting. Game Truck Atlanta is a popular go-to vendor for youth and kids festivals of all kinds!

How to Host a Video Game Party this Summer

What time better than summer to host a video game party? Warm weather, no school, and best of all, all your friends are free to have fun! The best way to spend your time this summer is to invite your friends over for an unforgettable party filled with games, snacks, and lasting memories. You can’t go wrong with that.

Choose your games, wisely

The most important component to a video game party is well, the games you pick. It can change the mood of the party so you want to select something that everyone will enjoy. A good tip is to ask your friends what games they would like to play before the party. If you like battling your friends as different characters, then Super Smash Bros. Ultimate might be the one for you.

If you enjoy playing solo and don’t mind sharing the controller, maybe you’ll enjoy a first person shooter. Just make sure whatever game you pick, charge your controller beforehand so the fun doesn’t have to stop. Ask your friends if they want to bring their own console, so if you have more than one, then the bigger the fun!

Snack it up

The best part of having all your friends around, is treating yourselves to delicious snacks. From chips to pizza, a party is time to let loose and eat food as good as the activities. If your party is themed then experiment with cool recipes to go along with it.

You can even have some fun with your food-choices and maybe combine some of your favorite snacks –– into one! Fried mac-n-cheese sticks anybody? Things could get messy, and since most of your guests aren’t gonna be eating with both hands, try to go for finger foods. That being said, try to make sure you’re well-stocked on plates, cups, and napkins. It’s a good idea to keep your food in a separate area so clean up will be easier.

What’s your theme?

Choose your own adventure, or in this case – a theme. Having cool decorations can add the finishing touches to elevate a party and create an experience. For a video game party, there’s so much you can do other than a few balloons. If you’re going for a Minecraft theme, try to find smaller cardboard boxes and have your friends try to build a fort. Speaking of forts, try to find some water guns and have your own Fortnite battle with your friends. Think of the details of your favorite game and try to make it a reality.
