Here’s a list of the games I’m looking forward to or thinking about playing in 2019.
Alright, so as I mentioned before, God of War was my favorite game of 2018. I think it might be fairly high on my favorite games of all-time list, but only after giving it more time to think about it. Besides God of War, here are my favorite games of 2018. I’ve reviewed each of the games on this list so I don’t think I’ll need to elaborate too much of them. I’m going to list in order of least favorite to most favorite out of these and number from six to two, since God of War sits at number 1.
TL,DR: At the end, as per usual. No spoilers.
Unlike 2017, my “Game of the Year” is in line with The Game Awards along with probably countless other people. God of War is the best game of this year, I think by a long shot. 2018 is probably one of my favorite years for gaming in a long time, but God of War stands out from the rest for a few different reasons.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving and gaming, I’ve been thinking about what games inspired my passion for the industry. I’m confident that Crystalis for the NES is the game that started my appreciation for the medium.
Thankfully, for me anyway, the releases have stopped and now its time to work through some back log games. 2018 has been an incredible year for games and I’ve played a majority of the major releases, that I can think of.
I haven’t been this excited for a new release in a long, long time. Like many people, I played the original Red Dead Redemption at release and loved it. I knew we would get another game in the series eventually, I didn’t expect it to take eight years. Once you start playing Red Dead Redemption 2 you can see why it took so long. Red Dead Redemption sits in my Top 5 favorite games of all-time. I expected greatness for RDR2. Here are my thoughts.
TL,DR: At the end, as usual.
I am a long-time fan of the Assassins’ Creed series. I didn’t play Rogue, Syndicate, or Unity for some reason but I’ve played and enjoyed every other major console release. I love the history and the fun alterations that Ubisoft makes to our living world. Assassins’ Creed Odyssey represents the where the series can go and the capabilities of the Ubisoft Quebec.
I’m excited to see where they go next, but for now here’s my review for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
TL,DR: At the end, as per usual.
I have been powering through Odyssey in order to finish it before Red Dead Redemption 2 comes out. Well, mission accomplished. Now I’m working on getting the review done but I have a ton of thoughts so I’m taking my time getting it done.
In the meantime, I’ve come short thoughts that don’t really belong in the review.
TL,DR: Have fun. Don’t buy XP boost.
I’ll go beyond the graphical prowess of the game since I talked about that in my reaction to the first gameplay trailer. RDR2 still seems awesome. I am only skeptical about the first person perspective.
