The Year In Video Game Skies, 2019

Despite video games’ best efforts to make me spend my time staring down at the floor and picking up random junk, I keep looking up to the skies above and the stars beyond. 2019 was full of lovely depictions of both.

This is the third annual collection of video game skies, and each year I’m amazed by just how many good ones there are. This year was no different, full of beautiful gradients, blazing sunsets, and trippy space-scapes. As this console generation comes in for a landing, the sky-tech is on full blast, in cutting edge blockbusters and indie games alike. But every year far more games come out than I could possible ever play, and even enlisting the help of my Kotaku colleagues, there are still plenty of games with dazzling sights that didn’t make it into this year’s roundup. So please dig through your screen cap archives and join me in the comments below to share some of your personal favourite skies from 2019.
