top 10 for me

Monster Hunter World – It's good to see that at least one big series is leaving its comfort zone. Finally Monster Hunter took a huge step to get much closer to its full potential.
Shadow of the Colossus – I can finally be on the full hypetrain for this game, since they fixed the dreadful controls of prior versions - at least to a decent enough degree, although the camera can still be a little ugh.
Astro Bot– Shockingly enough not overrated. Best Nintendo game in a decade or so.
Sonic Mania + – Seems like it was good that I waited for the polished retail release. This feels totally like what Sonic on Saturn could have been, hence it's one of the few modern "retro" games that actually feel like they could have existed.
Yakuza Kiwami 2 – The new engine for this series is amazing, I spent like an hour just doing photos. Combat is now more about mob control and it’s okay. The only new thing that bothers me is that they show all the sidequest locations on the map. Leave that Ubisoft shit out of Yakuza, please.
Ni No Kuni 2 – The story is trash, but the refreshingly quick pace, amazing audiovisuals and fun gameplay make up for it.
Megaman 11 – This was rock-solid action platforming. It has the perfect balance between challenge and variety in level design. Too bad they went for some ugly sterile New Mario Bros. art direction.
God of War's Dad – This game is at its worst when it doesn’t shut up with its pretentious story and handholding. It’s at its best when you’re doing sidequests relatively undisturbed by the main story, then it can be very engaging.
Bloodstained 1 – It’s like Classicvania, except with quicker stair walking, so that’s something that couldn’t possibly be bad.
The 25th Ward – There were moments that gave me that Killer7 feel, though I still expected a bit more from an early Suda51 story. Amazing soundtrack by both Takada and Yamaoka though – the art direction is great too.

God of War is definitely the best game I played this year.  Then Celeste, then Spider-Man, then Smash and then Mario Party.

From what I played:
- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - A joy to play. The Wii U version sucked so I'm glad Smash is back on track.
- Mega Man 11 - This was surprisingly good
- Shadow of the Tomb Raider - Again, better than I expected
- Insurgency Sandstorm - FPS of the year

Biggest dissapointments
- Forza Horizon 4 - Excited for this and then the demo hit and it felt like I had played this game before. Might be worth it if you haven't played Horizon 2, 3 and the expansions.
- Battlefield V - Grand Operations are poop. Very unbalanced and at this time aimbotters are taking over. Conquest is good fun though but I had hoped Tides of War would do more for me.

Anyhow I guess I played more 2017 than 2018 games this year. Plus I had a blast with the re-release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze earlier in the year.

My list in no particular order.  Some have been finished, some are almost finished, and others need a lot more play time, but still made the cut regardless.

-Rise Of The Tomb Raider (Played this year) (PC)
-Soul Calibur VI (PS4, PC)
-The Messenger (Switch)
-Bloodstained: Curse Of The Moon (Switch)
-Warriors Orochi 4 (Switch)
-Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Switch)
-Monster Boy (Switch)
-Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition (PS4, PC)
-Dragonball FighterZ (PS4, PC, Switch)
-Valkyria Chronicles 4 (Switch)
-Senran Kagura Peach Ball (Switch)
-Tetris Effect (PS4)
Gameplay footage:

This works for both Tetris and Senran

Haven't played enough of Celeste, Iconoclasts, and Dead Cells yet.  I think they'll probably make the list.

Monster Boy is easily the "best game nobody bought" title for 2018.  It's really, really good.

Glad to see into the breach doing so well.

That’s almost certainly my most played game between PC and the switch version.

It really perfects the “one more round” of FTL and seems somewhat less random.

My only critique is it needs a difficult between easy and normal.

Easy is easy enough that I can beat it 4 islands almost every time with at least half of the squads, but normal I find to be really unforgiving, where one bad turn can easily turn into getting wiped out quickly.

RDR2 was my GOTY, i liked almost everything about it, except their approach to aim assist which is dumb.

I also enjoyed Detroit and Spiderman, and Hitman 2 was great as well.

Didn't like God of War, Shadow of The Tomb Raider, nor Far Cry 5; didn't play much else.

I didn't like their sensitivity "spectrum".
It was either too sensitive or not sensitive enough (plus aiming with a thumbstick sucks anyway).

I think aim assist on a controller is a must, but i prefer it when it's a radius around the reticle that counts as a hit (i think Halo works like this) rather than a snap of the reticle to the target like RDR2 and some other games have. *shrug*

The gun feedback was still good enough to make gun fights fun tho.

Uhh, yeah? DQ is the best rpg franchise out there.

And Smash is so great due to the ridiculous level of content and nods to gaming history, without messing up the game pace or adding unwanted bullshit like Brawl. Not every game needs to be innovative, sometimes just being a really polished, content heavy, version of a known thing is perfectly fine.

Holy shit, I only played like 2-3 of these titles.  :lol Guess that explains why this year I was all ":huh " toward Game of the Year lists.

Ok, I did try the Battlefield beta and I've dabbled with Into the Breach (owned), but I wouldn't put Battlefield ANYWHERE near a Game of the Year list this year and Into the Breach isn't my cup of tea per se to put it on a list. So... yeah... still like 2-3 but I haven't voted because none of the ones I've played have grabbed me enough to say "Yeah, this year was solid."

You know you're getting old when you probably played and finished games from the previous year over the current year.

That said, I really enjoyed Valkyria Chronicles 4. A return to form for a series with great gameplay.  Spider-man was solid. I liked that the combat was more offense oriented then Arkham's counter focus. Also it obviously has great production values. God of War was cool, if a little too long.

Playing through DQXI now and it's fun. Haven't finished Octopath or Pokemon, but both seem solid. Have hardly touched RDR. Seems a bit too tedious for me.

At least RDR2 is beating GoW (by one vote, likely mine) i'm happy with that.

I actually voted for Fortnite before it was removed cause it still seems like GOTY, that's like the only game most people I know play.

Since it was removed I will technically slot in Vermintide 2 but can't actually vote for it since I voted already.  :doge

I also played mostly stuff from 2017 this year.

Yeah, I just finished Horizon: ZD just in January of 2018... does it count?  :doge
Also played through Deus Ex: MD DLC (which was awesome)... those were even older.

No everyone is playing Fortnite. Smash is popular but not a phenomenon like that or GTA, Minecraft, PUBG, LoL

Thats why its so weird seeing so many votes here

Bruh, The Bire is full of closeted Nintendo stans. It is known.
And some not so closeted.

Smash seems more all-ages than Fortnite. Even though Fortnite is more popular overall, its demographic seems limited, I don't know anyone over 20 that plays.

I actually know multiple parents that play with their kids.

Both games are equally stupid to me, but then again I guess they're not for discerning gamers with taste.  :tophat

I like the idea of Fortnite but can't wrap my head around the building mechanics.  :whatisthis
