2018 is over, and I want to look back and rank the 5 best games from the year.
Most of the games released this year were pretty good, minus some.
I’ll start at number 5, with that being the worst of the best and number 1 being the best of the best.
Disclaimer: This is my own opinion.
5. Far Cry 5
Far Cry 5 was a big deal when it released, since Ubisoft took a gap year since the last Far Cry game. So to say the least, it had very high expectations from the company. When it did release, many people praised the game for its creativity, but it was lacking in the story. One of the main complaints was the ending, which was very weak compared to the rest of the game. It did make up for this with all the DLC that added a lot of different and unique stories.
4. A Way Out
A Way Out was kind of a dark horse this year, many thought it would be a good game due to the unique style to the game. With only being able to play with your friend, it was a breath of fresh air.
3. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was one of the quieter games released this year, with no BIG expectations coming from the company, but it came out as one of the best games this year in terms of open world and story.
2. God of War
God of War was pretty much picked right from the beginning to win Game of the Year, and to what was considered very controversial, it did. It’s rival, Red Dead Redemption 2, won out in every other category, just missing the Game of the Year spot.
1. Red Dead Redemption 2
Red Dead Redemption, In my humble opinion, should have won GOTY, thus making it #1 on my list. In terms of story and gameplay, it was great with new and refreshing style of gameplay compared to other games this year. In terms of graphics, I still believe it to be one of the nicest looking games of the year, if not all time.
