I won't doubt that both are good games, RE 2 Remake looks really awesome, tempting me to play it even though i am big wuss when it comes to gore and horror in games.
Anyways, i haven't played them so i can't really say anything about them but i am kinda done with MK.
It would probably give me a headache watching all the super realistic gore.
My favorite game this year clearly is Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night (PS4 Version).
I even took my time to get the platinum trophy and a really had fun doing it.
My second choice would be Earthbound wich i finally finished but i guess that wouldn't count ^^
I also had my fair share of fun with Mario Maker 2 for Switch. It kinda lost its appeal after a while though.
