Top 10 highest rated Steam games of Q1 2019 – based on Steam user reviews.

The first quarter of 2019 is over, and with it came a plethora of game releases on PC’s most popular platform. Today, we’ll be counting down the Top 10 highest rated Steam games of Q1 2019. This list is based on Steam’s user review system. To be clear, the game had to have released between 1st January 2019 – 31st March 2019 to qualify. We’ll be including Early Access releases during this period as well. Let’s get to it.

10. Unheard

29th March, 2019 | NEXT Studios | Steam Store Page 

Top-down murder mystery game where players aurally return to crime scenes, and use the voices they hear to solve them. An interesting idea that impressed enough gamers to make it a late entry into the list.

9. Bright Memory

12th January, 2019 (Early Access) | FYQD-Studio | Steam Store Page

First-person shooter action game where players assume the role of Shelia, of Natural Science Research Organisation. Players use a set of special abilities to create special combos. Steam users seem to be particularly blown away by the fact that the game is being developed by one individual.

8. Devil May Cry 5

8th March, 2019 | Capcom | Steam Store Page

The latest instalment in the Devil May Cry franchise. Devil May Cry 5 has wowed PC gamers with its high octane combat, stunning visuals, and impressive optimisation.

7. Hypnospace Outlaw

12th March, 2019 | Tendershoot, Michael Lasch, ThatWhichIs Media | Steam Store Page

Hypnospace Outlaw is a “90s internet simulator” where players scour the internet to hunt down law breakers. Praised by Steam users for its challenging puzzles, witty humour, and nostalgia.

6. What Never Was

11th January, 2019 | Acke Hallgren | Steam Store Page 

What Never Was is a story-driven first-person exploration game with puzzles. Steam users enjoyed the game’s satisfying puzzles, and engrossing story. However, due to the game being very short, it left many wanting more.

5. Baba is You

13th March, 2019 | Hempuli Oy | Steam Store Page

Steam users have been enamoured with this puzzle game that forces you to set aside presumptions about rules in video games.

4. Touhou Luna Nights

26th February, 2019 | Vaka Game Magazine, Team Ladybug | Steam Store Page 

2D action metroidvania game set in the Touhou universeFeatures special abilities, including a time stop system, and a 2D adaptation of the “graze” system from the Touhou Project. Seems like the game does what it says on the tin.

3. Risk of Rain 2

28th March, 2019 (Early Access) | Hopoo Games | Steam Store Page

Announced a while back, but popped up on Steam Early Access a few days ago without any real heads up. It seems like Risk of Rain’s transition to 3D has gone down well with gamers (initially anyway).

2. Resident Evil 2

25th January, 2019 | Capcom | Steam Store Page 

Impressively, Capcom’s second entry in the list. Capcom shows how to remake a classic. PC Gamers were particularly impressed with it’s visuals, atmosphere, audio, and optimisation.

1. Slay the Spire

23rd January, 2019 | Mega Crit Games | Steam Store Page

No game has impressed Steam users more in Q1 2019 than Slay the Spire. Even if you take into account the game’s Early Access phase, this roguelike deck-building game has consistently received praise from the Steam community.
