Red Dead Redemption 2 giving an incredible shadow in 2018. One of the most anticipated videogames that has ever changed the release date of the game and dominated the conversation. This is a type of project that absorbs all the air in the room.
That doesn't mean the rest of 2018 is forgotten. Far from that, the year is one of the stronger years, dominated by the sequel and revamping the old standbys. This is the point in the generation of consoles when studios have mastered hardware, and they push the limits of what they can offer. Here are 10 of my best games for 2018:
1. Red Dead Redemption 2: Rockstar Games hasn't published games in five years, so the sensation behind this project is very clear. This chapter of the Wild West saga is a prequel that follows the Van der Linde gang and brings players to a vision of a fertile age. It features characters from the original game, including John Marston, but the campaign largely follows the exploits of Arthur Morgan, the leader's right hand.
Red Dead Redemption 2 setting graphic standards with Rockstar makes the world very realistic. Settings appear from the screen with detailed realism that you want to explore. Combine this with an epic story about the fading world of the Wild West and this sequel is the most memorable game of the year.
2. Monster Hunter World: Capcom has always had problems translating the magic of its popular series from Japan to the US audience. With entries to this series, the team finally got it right. Developers streamline aspects of the game that are more complicated and heavy, so that players can concentrate on skilled ways they can kill large creatures in a complex fantasy ecosystem.
3. God of War: Fans remember Kratos as a raging monster that overthrew Greek gods. This reshuffle follows Ghost of Sparta in the next chapter of his life. He was the father who raised a son named Atreus and he found life in a world dominated by the Norse gods. Santa Monica Studios builds gameplay and narration together through battles and design levels to create interesting campaigns that are united by the theme of parenting.
4. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2: Some of the last entries for the blockbuster franchise are disappointing, but Treyarch plays the series with this sequel. This team basically got rid of a single player campaign for a series of powerful multi-player modes. It was highlighted by Blackout, which is a subtle version of the battle royale format that has dominated online games. Think of it as Fortnite with the fast and addictive gameplay that is expected from Call of duty.
5. Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Ubisoft's first attempt to refresh its flagship series was good but flawed. Fortunately, this sequel finally got the right formula. Odyssey bringing players to ancient Greece, where they acted as Kassandra or Alexios, two Spartan children with curious inheritance. Players must solve the mystery behind family history and save the Hellenic world using a more refined and fun battle system to play than Origin.
6. Super Smash Ultimate Brooch: Bigger is indeed better with the latest sequel to the beloved battle game franchise. With a list of 74 playable characters and 103 stages, this offer gives more fans what they like. A surprising addition is the World of Light single player campaign that has the same depth in most role playing games. Throw into all other modes and play online and there are many things to make video game fans in many franchises happy.
7. Spider Man: After several years trying to make the perfect one Spider Man the game, Insomniac made achievements with confidence. Developers are experts at making drivers – the process of switching from Point A to Point B is fun – and they do it with Spider-Man's web slinging. The story that focuses on Peter Parker as a young adult also gives players a new perspective on everyone's favorite webheads.
8. Valkyria Chronicles 4: The classic cult strategy game from 2008 finally got a legitimate sequel. Sega brings back turn-based fighting mechanics that make original fun, while adding new elements such as weather mechanics and grenade classes. Valkyria Chronicles 4This narration followed the E Force, which played a significant role in the Second European War. Inspired by the Russian front in World War II, this strategy game based in the fantasy world echoed some of the larger themes of the conflict.
9. Pokémon: Let's go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee!: With success Pokemon Go, Game Freak must find a way to bring a new wave of fans to the main game series. The solution is a drastic update on how players catch pocket monsters. That change coincided with the first major entry of this series on the Nintendo Switch. The result is a game that brings newcomers and veteran fans deeper into the Pokemon world.
10. Octopath travelers: Music really helps videogames. It evokes memories. This is attached to the player long after the match is finished. With one of the best soundtracks in a long time and a graphic that reminds us of the golden age of Japanese role playing, this unusual title gives fans nostalgia while also offering new mechanics and storytelling tricks. – The San Jose Mercury News / Tribune News Service
