The Best Video Games Of 2018

It’s been a pretty big year for gaming. Not in the sense that any new consoles were released, but more in that everyone is getting so well to grips with the capabilities of consoles such as the Playstation 4 and Xbox One to really get the best out of them. And then there’s Nintendo’s Switch which has reinjected quirkiness back into the gaming landscape. That has meant a lot of good games and a few incredible ones. The real question is though which is the best? Well that’s up to you, but here’s a few of our favourites.

Red Dead Redemption 2

Following on from Rockstar games’ original Red Dead title the second rendition of the game brings all the excitement of a Western Grand Theft Auto back in 2018. This time round the game exists in a post-Civil War era. With a more developed mode of storytelling it’s had gamers everywhere champing at the bit since its release. We can’t get enough.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

What’s notable about the latest in the Assassin’s Creed series is Ubisoft’s decision to embrace colour and fantasy. Existing in a partially mythical world the game has a different direction to its predecessors, one that has definitely spiced things up a bit. It’s as exciting as ever though and definitely deserves a mention on this list.

Forza Horizon 4

Now we know motorsport games aren’t everyone’s bag but this one is pretty impressive. Based in an idyllically rendered English landscape, the game’s free roaming maps and outstanding handling make it a real highlight on the gaming landscape for 2018. Plus, it’s got a load of swanky cars that are fun to drive, even if it is only in a game.

God of War

Sony Santa Monica have managed to put a breath of fresh air into a franchise that was beginning to become a bit stagnant. As the games protagonist Kratos moves to the norse mountains to raise his son he is presented with a new set of challenges that bring a new dimension to the long running series. The gameplay is brilliant, the story better and so God of War is up there.

FIFA 19

This could be a controversial one. Obviously FIFA 19 hasn’t been well received in many corners of the gaming universe, with many claiming there just isn’t enough progression with this year’s edition. In some ways we’re inclined to agree but the games seismic impact year upon year is enough in and of itself to warrant a place on our list. The defenders might be worryingly quick in recovery, but c’mon it’s FIFA and we love it.
