it is that time of the year again where I will list out my favorite games of the year, keep in mind this list is in no particular order except for the number one
UbiSoft’s long-running flagship series had their best entry this year, by completely becoming an Action RPG game set in a vast open world, it had a fun story and a few very interesting mechanics that is a first for the series also the revamped combat which focuses more on aggressive style over Origin’s shield-based combat is very welcome.
Dead Cells is a must play for anyone who ever played a classic 2D hack and Slash game and liked it, the game is a rogue-like and it has a killer progression system with challenging and engaging gameplay.
Frostpunk is my favorite surprise of the year, I haven’t played a game like Frostpunk in a long long time mainly because I didn’t have a PC for a while, but I love it it has one of the most fun strategy gameplays with an interesting setting and very smart choice system that makes you think twice before you make a decision.
God of War really shocked me, I never liked the previous GoW games I found them to be one of the least interesting action games in the market, and they were very forced on the industry, The new God of War game, however redefines this series in a fantastic way makes it not only one of the best games of the year but one of the best 3rd person hack and slash games ever made.
Rockstar shows up once or twice in a decade to not just make a great game but to raise the standard for what everyone will compare themselves with until they show up again and with RDR2 they just made the game really harder on everyone else, RDR2 tackles the Western genre and almost all of its subgenre’s in one massive and epic game.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the Ultimate Super Smash Bros. game and that is everything a Smash fan wants, not only the game has the biggest roaster, the biggest stage collection and almost 27 hours of music and so many modes it also has one of the best gameplay and fighting mechanics in fighting games history, it is really fun and if you haven’t played a Smash bros. game before this is also the best place to start because the single player content really elevates your skill through it.
Far Cry 5 is a fantastic open world FPS game set in an interesting location with a very weird story, the game lets you approach it however you want to take on challenges the way you like it and either guns blazing or a stealth approach or use the environment to your advantage, I loved it and I can’t wait to play its sequel.
I am very thankful for Monster Hunter World, because Capcom successfully expanded the Monster Hunter fanbase with it and introduced it to the rest of the world who were put off by the previous games in the series because of the platforms they were on, and not only that Monster Hunter World is a sort of reboot to the series and it is really a treat when you realize that Capcom removed every annoying part of the previous games and replaced it and made it better and for that Monster Hunter World is my 2018 game of the year.
